They'll try harder on making the 600 gpus to perform behind the mid range .

Unfortunately I'm not a fan of Ubi... I vowed to never purchase a game from them, lol.

Hopefully with 5 million reasons to do so Nvidia will get the graphics in Watch Dogs up to snuff as all the previews have looked like crap, featuring the low-polygon-count, poorly textured models of every GTA clone designed for the 360/PS3.

4K textures would be nice, but unless they up the model details it'll be like putting a tuxedo on a goat (to reference a classic). Sleeping Dogs upped the textures on PC but didn't fix the lackluster environments and it was a disappointment. A great improvement over the stock version, incontrovertibly, but not as great of one as it could have been.

Also, since Ubi-DRM is even more obnoxious than Steam DRM (it's steam^2) my interest in this game is pretty low. As for Assassin's Creed, let me know when it is finally on GOG.

The U-Play site log in requirement drastically reduces my interest for any future gaming I do with Ubisoft titles. It's bad enough I need to log into Steam to play the game, but then also into their own verification process, lame. It would be extra pathetic if future Ubisoft titles required Nvidia GeForce Experience software to be logged into.

I'm thinking the same thing.

It's too bad Ubisoft is a horrible PC gaming company that manages to be as bad, if not worse than EA in execution.

Absolutely spot-on comment. Avoiding Ubisoft like the plague until they abandon their stupid DRM. Downloaded the Flashback demo yesterday to see if it was any good, and lo and behold, it requires U-play. FOR A DEMO?! Immediately uninstalled and won't bother with anything from them in the future.
