I bought a game in Game yesterday for my PC. On going to the counter I was asked to make sure that my computer met the minimum specifications (it did), and that if I bought the game there would be no refund, no exchange, and no comeback whatsoever. I know that by warning me in advance they might be covering themselves, but it still sounds rather illegal to me.
Of course I asked why there was no refund or exchange:
“You could take it home and copy it and then exchange it, or take the serial key and use it making the cd useless for the next person who buys it”. Or something to that effect is what I was told.
“What happens if it doesn’t work?” I ask.
[Worker shrugs shoulders]
I looked up legislation related to this and couldn’t find anything specifically making this kind of behaviour illegal. Any thoughts?
