Constant Internet Required To Play Ubisoft Titles?

Ubisoft have made it so you require an internet connection for all their future PC titles, which includes the recent release of Assassin’s Creed 2. The policy is likely to cause an angry backlash from gamers.

How it currently works – according to industry reviewers and bloggers – is that if you are disconnected from the internet at any point then you are kicked out of the game immediately and all progress since the last save or checkpoint is lost. This cannot be avoided in any way despite several attempts at thinking outside the box to beat the system.

Ubisoft have not made any official comment yet, but as the word spreads it will remain to be seen what impact it will have on sales. The main thrust of the objections is that guaranteeing a perfect internet connection at all times is impossible and at points their master servers will be down for maintenance. Why should this impact on whether or not customers can play a game they have already purchased in full?
