Question of ethic (Should I bring back the game?) (Xbox 360)

#1 Posted by Ghil (241 posts) -

I just bought Arcania, and tried playing it on my HDTV. First thing I noticed, was the framerate, which was horrible. and then the text, which was unreadable. 
 I tried all the evening to check if I could do something, and no, the game is quite unplayable that way. 
Thing is, technically, It is in working order... 
Should I bring it back to ebgames, asking for a refund on what I consider unplayable, or would it not be accepted as the product is currently in a "working condition"?.

I don't think this has anything to do with ethics, really. I think take it back, and if they don't accept it as a return, at least do a trade-in and get some store credit so it's not a total loss.

At least get something you'll enjoy playing.

Doesn't EBgames let you return stuff within 7 days if you decide you don't like/want it or something? 
Oh and, don't every play Gothic games on anything other than PC. At least on the PC you can try to fix it, or somebody will. 
Seriously, those games are bugged to all hell. FO3+NV bugs x 100.

This is inconsequential. Do what you want to do.
