We had a feeling this might happen and what do you know? We were right. While the PC port of Assassin's Creed 2 is not yet available here in the US, Ubisoft's SINGLE PLAYER ONLY open world action game is available in Europe. And it looks like Ubisoft's DRM servers, which were supposed to protect against the game being pirated, have instead kept legit consumers from playing the game across the pond.

UbiSoft lied about the reason for DRM Servers being down...

My god this is satisfying. I saw this story earlier today and couldn't wait to come on to DC and update the other thread with this, shouting my glee. This is not a good feeling for Ubi to be inspiring in its customers. I should not be thrilled that they're getting screwed! But I am. :P

I'm loving this too. The call prior to release that gamers should vote with their wallets was never going to happen, people are too stupid. So I'm glad to see someone else has stepped in to vote for the sheeple.
