It's true Ubisoft took it too far, but we're talking constant online DRM in that case. Something like with SimCity, though if you ask EA about SimCity they'll tell you it's the best selling version of the franchise to date. So for them, did the DRM hurt that game? Tough to actually say because while the internet rage says one thing, the sales numbers for it say a different thing. Makes you wonder.
Either way, we're not on the constant online DRM level with the Xbox One, the 24hr check for offline play, something that could be tweaked and extended. It's just not at that level, but at the same time the requirement for it on the PC made no sense for Ubisoft to do. You PC install is limited to one anyways, that's why we have CD keys, or if you go through a digital service it's tied to your account. Again, there's no sharing options, something the Xbox One will have.
