EU officials are proposing that games be brought in line with a European law that states people are entitled to refunds if products don’t work “with fair commercial conditions”.
Like, if it’s broken. As in, if it’s buggy.
Commissioners Viviane Reding and Meglena Kuneva want to expand the EU Sales and Guarantees Directive to cover games, meaning they’ll carry with them a two-year guarantee.
Games body TIGA thinks it’s a bad plan.
“They have to be careful not to stifle new ideas,” TIGA boss Richard Wilson told the BBC.
“Consumers need good quality products – that is only reasonable – but if the legislation is too heavy-handed it could make publishers and developers very cautious.”

Gamers are claiming that Fallout 3 DLC the Pitt – released this morning – is suffering from some serious bugs.
“It’s completely broken,” said one, posted in this Nelson thread.
“Textures and graphics are glitchy and bugged. There are these box exclamation points all over The Pitt map. I think someone screwed up because it’s completely bugged out. It’s like not playable after the bridge because it freezes. If you manage to get past the bridge part you’re pretty much in glitch city. Good Luck.”
We’ve just put a call into Bethesda. Thanks, evilashchris.
