If so what kind?

I want to spend my money with UBI and pre-order it ASAP.

Thank you

The new combined DVD will have anti-piracy protection. At this time Ubi has not said which anti-piracy protection. If you have an opinion on this matter, please participate in this poll.

Thanks steve, vote in.

Seems crazy that just the mear mention of the "S" word gets threads deleted...Why the secrecy?

I thought it would have been a customers right to know what a product contains before they buy it or pre-order it?

However, the customer has no choice but to wait until the game publisher makes that information known. At this time, AFAIK, that information has not been made public by UbiSoft.

Rgr that Steve; I will hold back on my twitching buy finger (online/mouse) and wait for official confirmation from UbiSoft http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.
Although I would have thought that if Ubi are willing to allow vendors to take money for there product by way of pre-orders there should be some clarification.

It's all most probably just a storm in a tea cup and all will be just fine and dandy when the DVD is released.

Cheers

Still not announced which copy protection will be selected, but can eliminate Starforce.

I already said what protection it will have over at SimHQ. I guess no one believes me. All this fuss for nothing.

Jason I, like others, are looking for an official response from Ubi, since these are their forums. No one is taking you to task, only trying to locate a source to the corporation.

No slight intended, and an apology offered.
