EA Giving us Money?
Yes, 'tis true, 'tis true. As of yesterday, the infamous Electronic Arts implemented a service change to their much maligned Origin digital distribution platform. Any EA (though only EA) software purchased through can be returned for a full refund within 24 hours. It may not be perfect, but considering EA are the first online platform to offer this, gotta' give them props for that. Consider it a testing the water sort of thing.
Now, I'm quite certain there will be a significant of the obligatory "EA SUXXORS Y U NO ALL GAYMS?!?one!?" without even a passing thought for the legal ramifications of such a transaction. They, or any other distributor implementing such a policy *cough* Steam *cough* would be in a legal nightmare arranging all the individual agreements with all the individual developers and publishers. So no, it's not great news, but it is a step in the right direction.
