Warning if you by games at game also named EB you can not get your money back at game any more this morning i went to take Soldner back and they said that there policy on getting a refund on PC games is no longer running, they ask me what was wrong i said that it was just not as good as i thought it was and they they can only exchange now if its dammage for the same game.

Im not sure wever this is every where in the UK but i though i would give you the heads up as seen as they didnt say anything at first they should give notice.

Indeed. The cashier told me so the last time I went there. Their 10 day returns policy has ended I think.

Well, at least in Texas, you can still trade in the game for about half to a quarter of the price.

Apparently they got sick of people returning multi player games after using the CD key.

Hahahahahaha! I didn't know that. What a brilliant strategy. Only problem is, I've got Halo, and I can't give it back!!! Thank you very much multiplayer-users-who-use-the-CD-key-then-give-it-back for costing me £35!!!

We have a cerain toyshop compagny that puts the cd key inside the plastic dvd box, so you can just pick up the box of a game you like, remember/write down/photograph the cd key and download the game from the internet, how consumer friendly can you go?... roll%20eyes%20%28sarcastic%29.gif:D

Heh, Game's a little more cautious in that all the game cases are totally empty. So far, I haven't seen one with a CD key inside. Instead, they stick labels on the instruction manual and keep them all in a drawer until you bring a box to them. Which seems a little pedantic to me. PC World just wraps them up in cellophane and has done with it. Amazon goes one further still and doesn't even let you see the box until you've bought it!

i've heard of some guys here opening the box, dialing their cell phone, and leaving themselves a voicemail of the cd key. its only good till someone buys the game tho, once they have a prob getting into the MP, they just need to call the manufacturer, they ban the cd key and issue a new onr to the purchaser.

most places now keep the boxes empty on the shelf, you get everything when you hand over some dollars.
