In an age where most games can be completed in 8 hours or less, I don't see this as a great policy for business.

I predict this won't last long.

I don't know, how many games do you beat in 8 hours that aren't Call of Duty? I can't think of too many EA games that are beatable in 8 hours or whatever.

Perhaps a figure of speech, surely you can beat many games in the time they've allotted for a refund. I remember way back in the day when there was a store called EggHead, which was like Gamestop just before Gamestop. They had a 30 day no questions ask return policy. I only used it on really bad games and it was great, if that is how it was used. But I talked with several other customers, they returned everything. They said, if they offer it and you don't use it, you are a sucker. That all you are doing is working within their approved policy. A couple years later they went bankrupt and sold assets to Amazon. The moral is... sure you can take advantage of it for everything, if you do, it won't be around for long. If we are to only use it on games because they really suck to us.... then there is a chance it could stick. So it will be up to us... we'll blow it.
