Ubisoft enters digital distribution market and offers games for $1
As more and more companies begin to recognize the decline of physical media, the migration to the digital space is becoming apparent. Yesterday revealed one of GameStop’s latest angles, but today we have Ubisoft taking its Uplay service and make it a distribution platform. Previously, the service was more of a reward structure for Ubisoft loyal. Now it can be used to download games on PC.
This service will help unify all of Ubisoft’s game data across platforms, while providing PC gamers “an integrated shop, the direct purchase and download of games, a friends list and chat system”. Oh, and probably an additional layer DRM, which they haven’t been the best at utilizing in the past. Whether it will be able to compete with Steam, Origin, or any of the other digital distribution platforms competently has yet to be proven.
There are a number of Uplay titles on sale right now. Head to the official site to download the client. If you dare.
I think Screwattack needs to make some cameo's and plug SGC through other sources. I am loving all the internal love but I believe for the kickstarter to make it we need to have people want to go to this party who may have never heard of Screwattack before.
Sometimes I ambition I didn't accept to do anything, like plan or go to back school, jogos de damas and just play the amateur that I bought that I actually will never accept time for.
They allowance him at the end anyway. Also if Link never beats him he will jogos de fazenda never affirm avengement on Link and Zelda's decendents.
Pretty sneaky Ubisoft....
Yea nty... drm is fn terrible with ubisoft.
Dear Ubisoft...no thanks.
Driver San Francisco for dollar!? I'm buying it and I doubt my computer will even be able to play it.
If they plan to compete with Steam, terrible idea. Let's not forget that Ubisoft also has a bad reputation due to DRMs.
Competing with Steam? No. Origin? Quite possibly.
Huh.. ok its hard to find a 30 doller game one 1 doller... Ok Ubisoft well played.. i might take you up on a couple games i do not currently own thanks to steam.. for now...
