Ubisoft offers discounts to storm victims

On Monday,  the Assassin’s Creed Facebook page posted two discount codes directed specifically toward customers being affected by Tropical Storm Sandy.  The deals entitled fans to both 50% off any game except Assassin’s Creed 3 and 15% off anything from the Ubi Workshop website.

The people at Ubisoft really know how to turn lemons into lemonade.  They take one of the worst natural disasters to hit the east cost in a long time, and they turn it into good PR and profits.  I find this kind of thing tasteless and underhanded, but can I really criticize a well-timed discount?
