Yeah Day one patchs or ones soon after release are now part and parcel of the gaming world.

They fix a release date and stick to it! Look at Skyrim, they had to/wanted to stay with 11.11.11 no matter what the consequences of the PS3 version! ;)

every decent game has a day 1 patch lol but I would rather it be a release day fix than weeks after the release!

Some might argue that a game should be 100% complete upon its release and I agree, but with the pressures of release dates, it doesn't always work out that way. So it’s good that we have so many games that are supported with patches and updates, because that would never have happened years ago. If a game was glitchy, it remained that way, so it’s good that games have the support that they do nowadays. As they say "Better late than never".

I wonder why the patch wasn't needed on consoles. It sounds like it was PC only so I guess the 360 version had those issues fixed. It's good to see Ubisoft paying attention to all the platforms though, and listen to their customers on the whole DRM fiasco.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
