Yet another of Ubisoft's anti-piracy efforts has turned around and become an anti-Ubisoft one, as PC gamers of the heavily anticipated music game, Rocksmith, were left high and dry after a batch of discs were released without the required CD keys.
Without a valid CD key, the game cannot be activated, and gamers were left with a completely useless retail package. Worst of all, Ubisoft failed to provide a timely solution to the problem, and the eventual solution they came up with still requires gamers to fill in a form send in a copy of their purchase receipt.
Ubisoft have tried hard to move away from its anti-piracy policy controversies, but it seems these controversies refuse to distance themselves from Ubisoft.
For their troubles, Ubisoft have promised to provide affected customers with a free DLC for the game titled "Guitarcade timesaver", worth $2.99 on Steam, and have promised affected customers that once they go through the steps outlined, they should receive their CD keys in short order.
