Who said I bought the pile of trash?
Also, until very recently via Steam, there was no option for refunds. For many years the industry has lobbied to keep software this special little island, where consumer protection doesn't exist. WB Games has been one of the most abusive of this. The only reason on this Earth that this specific title was pulled back, was because of Steam Refunds being an option - finally.
That still doesn't change the fact that WB Games has a history of exploiting customers, knowingly releasing utterly flawed garbage (in some cases never working ever), and refusing refunds. Because the law still doesn't say they have to give refunds.
Sure, there are a few pain in the ass ways of getting your money back, as an unprotected consumer. But most people won't jump through all those hoops for $50 or $60. Or worse yet, even know those hoops exist in the first place.
The justification in my original statement is that you have a business who is openly operating in a way that is pretty much illegal in every other industry. The only way they have been able to keep it up, is really because there aren't any consumer protection laws to kick them in the teeth.Edited by PostalTwinkie - 10/31/15 at 11:17am
