    What a shame UK customer won't be able to get a refund. I'll reserve my 1 time steam refund for some future disaster worse (what, it could be possible) than ACM. :)

    Hopefully this will serve as a reminder that pre-ordering digital games is pointless, with often no cost saving in doing so and your pre-order benefit is some virtual item, which is useless if the game end up crap...

    Even with the settlement paid, I bet the game was still highly profitable.

    $2,500 to the plaintiff, $312,500 to his lawyers.

    That's almost funny!

    Wouldn't it be great if they just open sourced the source code. I'm sure within a fortnight you'd have a dozen different indie teams working on fixing the game.

    I don't get it. I mean if someone missells something you report them. Try to get a refund and if unsuccessful you bring them to the small claims court. The threat of which is usually enough to get your refund.

    The idea of making the lawyers a boat load of money is a lot more disturbing than a missold game.
