Stole Operation Flashpoint by accident!

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Well as the title indicates is true, story is:
I went into EB games next town from where i am and bough OFP for $80, When i took it home i installed and registered it but not long after my GTS died and i RMA'd it, So i returned OFP and got cash return. For some reason OFP works without the disc and its registered to me! So ive obviously just got $80 worth of game for free. was wondering if i can get in trouble or if i should let them know about this? I don't want them to find out because i will have to pay them back for the game. I payed cash in hand and gave no names so its like an anonymous theft to them.
This thread is not to be argued in

Question is: Will i get into trouble for this? I completely forgot about registering it until i got back home, Still cant play it because my GTS wont be back for ages but on board has a go and plays it at 1024x768 2x AA detail medium.

No, and most likely nobody will notice/care.

Instead of worrying about getting in trouble, why not uninstall the game, and then your conscience will be clear. I know mine would be. Stealing is wrong, plain and simple.

And it's not 'by accident' if you are intentionally keeping it on your hard disk. If it fell in your pocket in the store, and you realized it after you got home; that would have been accidental. Still wrong, and I would go back to the store to either pay for it, or return it.

I wouldn't say "stole", no you probably won't get in trouble and they won't care. The next owner of that game might care but once he calls Gamestop/Whoever made the game, they will either deactivate your code and give him a new one, or just give him a new code.
