My son got me Assassins Creed II (for the PC) for my birthday. He was so excited that he started installing it for me on my PC. Then he went to play it.
When I went to play it, it would not let me activate it under my own user ID on THE SAME COMPUTER. I contacted Ubi-Soft saying I wanted to run the game under my own user (and have my own saved games). Their response was:
Unfortunately, there is no way to activate the game with a different ubi.com account. Once a key has been used to activate the game, the key is permanently bound to that account.
This is extremely upsetting. They treat you like a criminal. Now I have to log onto my son’s account and use his e-mail address to play my own game. How unfair is that.
I will not buy another Ubi-Soft game for the PC again with these Draconian tactics to prevent piracy.
