I wonder if anyone else noticed the apology regarding boontybox and other issues. I just thought it was nice of them to put that on there when many would argue they have nothing to say sorry for.

Thanks to Ubi/1C for posting that! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I just went to http://www.ubi.com/US/ and saw nothing about boontybox. What did you see?

And yet when I apologize to an entire nation, I get the cold shoulder.

Ubi didnt blatantly talk against Europe.

Even you can see the difference between what you said and what Ubi/1C done with PE2 release.

Anyway i thought this was forgettern about, maybe if you want to discuss it we can take it to PM?

No, I don't want to take it to PM. It really isn't that important. I just thought it amusing that you would give kudos to ubi for apologizing for causing thousands of people problems with their PC's and you wouldn't cut me slack on a political opinion. That's all. Have a nice day, Mr. Jama.

It does indeed show me cutting you some slack.

Now i am happy to forget that you ever said that ****, as long as you will believe me. Im a forgiving person, because i too speak **** once in a while, and i admit that i should sometimes think before i speak. Loads of people could speak on that. Im willing to let it go so lets just forget it and appreciate that a big corporate monster like Ubi can appreciate the problems they caused and have the decency to authorise an apology on it.

Well they are probably facing a farcical download figure and a even bigger complaints figure from 98 users etc......... I see they say they are both working to a fix..........

Would be better if UBI took the contract, punctured a hole in the top left corner of it and hung it up in a toilet stall at UBI Towers, so at least someone will get some benefit from it..............

Alas.. no doubt they committed themselves to hobbling along from one disaster to another over the course of several games and updates....... whilst their customer base gets more despondant and moves on to other peoples products....

I shall wait to see what really happens, an apology now a days means nothing to anybody, when results are shown and proven, then I will take the apology to heart. I still have to say though, good to see Ubi is taking the proper steps to clear this matter up.

Still, they leave most 56kers in the dust with this download, but thats already been discussed.

As far as all the debacle over the PE-2 add on, well I just hope that we can all remember what the hell it was that we did to fix it come the time in 8 or 9 months when we decide to do a total re-install.

True. An apology nowadays is just PR. Actions speak louder than words.

And I believe that they do have a great deal to apologise for danjama. Don't presume to speak for others.

It's good to see that ubi takes what it's cutomers think seriously, there are so many companies that don't... it will be interesting to see what, if anything, they do differently in the future as a result. That will be the true measure of the value of thier apology.
That being said, I wonder what the deal is with not making the add-on available in the US? (It's not about being able to get the add-on or having to pay in pounds etc. -that's not a problem- rather, why the "Not available in the US" that accompanies the add-on announcement?) Perhaps the plan is to release a disc in a nice box for the US market? It seems a bit silly to me to stagger the release when you are dealing with a globally-connected market.
