    Ubisoft has UPlay piggybacks, DRM up the behind, buggy games and now this. I'm not sure if they are deliberately trying to lose customers?

    I still remember Ubisoft removing the DX10.1 update that improved AMD GPU performance in AC(Nvidia did not support DX10.1 at the time). They gave some lame excuse,yet multiple sites looked for the problems,and didn't find them.

    Re: News - Ubisoft and Nvidia extend Gameworks partnership

    Despite the above self congratulating partnership blurb it is well documented on various gaming news sites that the experience of playing Watch Dogs, even on high-end PCs suffers from performance and stability issues. Ubisoft has acknowledged the issues and pledged to issue a patch as a high priority.
    So despite getting NVidia's assistance, the "Dogz" is still broken? Incredible!
    Anyone know if this is worth getting on XBox360, or is the PC version still the one to have? I've got some points with Game I need to spend, and this looks like the best available ... that or Sniper Elite 3.

    Yep, you've just about summed Ubi up for me - add "useless support" and I'll agree with you 100%.

    What would worry me about this is that us AMD folks are going to get forgotten, jumping back to the bad old days where there were PhysX games that didn't work too well on red team's kit.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    Game works is as much about slowing AMD down and preventing them getting drivers optimised as it is about developers having a 'toolbox' to make their life easier. If watch dogs is anything to go by it doesn't even do much for the community using NV cards.

    Noooo! Can't believe they are going to screw The Division. I was really looking forward to that but as a red team user I will have to give that a miss just like Watch Dogs.

    Re: News - Ubisoft and Nvidia extend Gameworks partnership

    I am unable to get into my Ubisoft account and have had no success at recovering it and now they go ahead with more Gameworks integration that is damaging the industry by hiding/obfuscating code from AMD making their games work worse on 40% of gamers PCs. Not a good way to treat your customers; they give me no reason to recover my Ubisoft account because I have no intention of using it.
