I own and play SH3 and SH4. I am disappointed with your choice of requiring an internet connection to play the game SH5. Have you people even think that some people that play your games do not have an internet connection. I am on welfare and can afford to purchase SH5 but do not have an internet connection because it is too expensive and is not 100% reliable.

I will not purchase SH5.

Thanks for that. You're using GWX Gold right? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I feel for you, brother. Been there and done that. Not in much better shape now.

The system requirements for SH V are printed on the package... in microfont. It does state the requirement for a broadband internet connection.
What it doesn't tell you.....
Ubisoft will not provide the needed infrastructure to make this internet only title 100% playable, 100% of the time.
Redundant servers on redundant connections are very very expensive. Maybe Ubisloth is on welfare too. Keep talking with your limited funds my friend. They're losing sale after sale.
More so than what a thousand pirates could steal from them.
They will provide some useless Uplay points though.... if the registration servers are working http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif
