EA CEO John Riccitiello Steps down

EA have announced that effective March 30th, their CEO John Riccitiello will step down.

Not much is known about his decision to leave, he himself in the press release states he feels it’s time to pass the baton. However it is very hard not to look at this and think of the recent fallout over Sim City (however, that really is a minor issue for a CEO to step down over, and it would more than likely result in someone from Maxis going first).

Although, it could simply be a sign of New Generation, New Direction for EA. Only time will tell.

Full Press Release below:

Ubisoft tone down PC DRM **UPDATED**

Rumours, coupled with some screen shots as dubious proof, are coming from Reddit (via PCGamer) that Ubisoft may have relaxed some of the DRM restrictions on their PC games.

A trip into one of 2010’s least desirable moments after the cut…

Update

Shacknews have official confirmation from Ubisoft that Assassin’s Creed 2 and Splinter Cell Conviction now only authenticate on first load.  Other games will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, so if you’re steadfastly against this clusterfuck of a PR disaster, you won’t be adding Settlers 7, Silent Hunter 5 or H.A.W.X. 2 to your collection any time soon.
