Ubisoft Joins Pay-to-Multiplayer Trend

Ubisoft UPlay

How much do you want second hand ?

today announced the launch of it’s “pay-to-multiplayer” system for second-hand games, coming August 30th, joining the likes of Sony, THQ & EA.

It seems the day of the second-hand game may be entering it’s twilight as more and more publishers shut down equal access for second hand owners.

We’ll certainly miss rooting around in second hand games bins for killer bargains when the last game goes pay-to-play… and with more and more games featuring multiplayer as a key mechanic this seems almost inevitable now… *sniffle*…

I like games, more specifically achievements, I'm like a gaming boy scout... I like my badges. Oh, and I also like; story telling, well realised characters, character progression, complex skill sets, shiny graphics, building things, shooting things, jumping over things, hiding from things, driving things and fighting things. Sometimes I even write about these things, sorry...
