Ubisoft’s uPlay DRM Scheme Ruins Steam Summer Sale for Everyone

Christmas is canceled, too. Ubisoft games are caged by the shackles of uPlay, an online authorization service that works with the DRM they bolt on because customers must be treated like criminals.

Since this comes in the middle of the Steam Summer Sale, possibly the closest thing gaming has to a national holiday, people noticed. Oh, how they noticed. Kotaku has the story.
