Ubisoft has seen no shortage of controversy this past year, but the company had to have been hoping that the release of its most significant titles this holiday season would relieve at least some of the PR pressure.

Unfortunately, with news that the company's first of these holiday releases, Watch Dogs Legion, is apparently causing Xbox One Xs to shutdown, there are significant reasons to be worried.

Especially upon close examination of Ubisoft's terms of use.

Bad terms may be industry standard, but that doesn't mean they can't cause trouble...in Virtual Legality.
