What is the deal! I want to buy this game but I can't find a cd (non-DVD) version. Does one exist? If not, why would ubisoft distribute a game that immediately eliminates a large block of potential customers? Not everyone has a DVD drive, nor should they need one for computer gaming of all things.

It's available via download as well as the DVD. Personally, I think it's about time games started to get distributed via a single DVD as opposed to multiple CDs. Thankfully, this is a trend. If you plan on purchasing PC titles in the future, I suggest you seriously consider a DVD drive. They're very inexpensive anyway.

Indeed...

Mate, you're making a big deal out of nothing. A DVD drive is almost half the cost of a game these days. Unless you have a laptop, in which case... good luck finding one cheaper than the value of four games... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Yup 99.9% of all new PC sold ship with a DVD/CDRW combo or DVD/RW bite the bullet and buy one

Infact if oleg/ubi had put all PF onto a dvd instead of saying it won`t fit onto the two cd`s(hmmmfhhfh) i would shooting down zeros and not waiting for a patch (get well soon oleg(new car and medical bills not withstanding))

riggins, if you're in the US, Canada or Mexico, you can buy the US Download version here (http://www.direct2drive.com/product.aspx?gid=4&pid=193). I'm not sure where to get the EMEA Download version - perhaps someone else can answer this. I checked shop.ubi.com (http://shop.ubi.com/default.asp), though it only seems to offer the DVD version.

I've had a DVD drive since 2000. It cost me $50 then, I imagine you can find them as cheap as a floppy drive now.

I don't think it is any strange that they released the game on DVD only.But if you want CD version you can buy polish release,which is to be released on 3 rd of June.On CD.

S!
