cause just like any big company they care more about profit than anything else, and with a "no refund" policy they really cant get hurt and at most if u want something back they will give u steam credit so no lose of real money. give em till monday thats when they SHOULD get more keys if not then possably Wednesday if not then i would try to get a refund

The issue is they ran out of keys due to the sale. It makes sense that they will wait for the sale to end to see how many they need to get rather than try to restock now only to run out again or buy more than they need. Just give them until monday or tuesday.

I'm pretty sure that policy would not hold water when they are selling a product they know does not work.

I think you misunderstood my post, I was agreeing with you but apologize for the confusion, I in no way intended anything other than agreement with your statement. The quote was only meant to stop any poster arguement about a no refund policy.

This has happened occasionally during sales for years now. I'm pretty sure it goes back to Bioshock and the first holiday sale or the early weekend deals. It's understandable that some people are new and don't know about this, but the inconvenience is equal to that. It's not like their homes are being bulldozed because they failed to inform themselves. They just have to wait a few days.

There's a big Kindle sale on right now as well. What's happening here is that Disney is making a big gesture to show Star Wars fans that they get it... and it appears that, well, they don't quite get all of it, not just yet.

But they're trying, and I'm pleased with the gesture.

And if the game was so damned important to me, I'd have bought it four months ago.

Yeah man! Forget the man with his "Profit!" It's not like I have an internet connection and have the ability to google game play for this game! The man doesn't care about anything other than making money and keeping me the gamer down! Like, the "big company" should be in this for EQUAL distribution and give stuff away so the old's that own big companies don't make any money man! I'm telling my mom so she can call and get a refund for me! I want a REFUND!

It holds water because it's in the legally binding EULA.
Ronne May 4, 2013 @ 11:09pm 
Nope, your local laws trumps EULA every time.
BIXBY SNYDER May 4, 2013 @ 11:48pm 
Because they will honor the purchases and get the key issue resolved.

Valve runs Steam, a digital distribution platform that requires goodwill from its users to survive, let alone make profit.

Ignore what the EULA says. Valve does do refunds in exceptional circumstances. I imagine they're understaffed during the weekend, like most businesses, but will already have contacted Disney to say they need a lot more keys.

Simply put: We all have to wait till monday. If you guys really want to get your panties in a twist over a £5 game, well, it's not my place to comment on your fashion sense.

check out this site

if they dont get any keys the game is not "Fit for purpose", they would be required by LAW to do an exchange or refund.

Well in Britian anyway
