    I returned a PC game to GAME today which i didnt want.
    They gave me a credit note , as they said they couldnt do refunds as a game could be copied.

    so i thought fair enough at least i have the dosh.

    Guy then says they send off all games to Microsoft who do a check to see if the Game has been opened with a DVD/CD burner and copied!!

    Now i didnt copy the game so i could careless, but is this possible or was he talking BS?

    Complete BS.

    There again it was in Game so s/he probably thought it was true. And that the next Intel CPU gives off enough microwaves to fry and egg. :)
