EU proposal calls for two-year guarantee

Isn’t it annoying when you get a game that’s a buggy mess? It just doesn’t play how you thought it would, and the developers have shipped it with some game-killing bugs. It annoys all of us, but have you ever thought that you should be able to get your money back?

An EU proposal is saying just that. Games should come with a 2-year guarantee to protect the consumer from bugs, glitches and anything else that could hinder their experience. The Business Software Alliance says differently…

“Digital content is not a tangible good and should not be subject to the same liability rules as toasters.”

Which way are you leaning on this topic? It’s a tough call to make, isn’t it!?
