Epic Offering Partial Refunds for Games Purchased Before They Go on Sale

A tweet from Joshua Boggs indicates Epic Games is now offering partial refunds to those who buy games from the Epic Games Store shortly before those games go on sale (thanks VG247). The store has not posted an official refund policy, but Joshua, who is founder of Studio MayDay, posted the following email he received after one of his recent purchases went on sale:
Hi Joshua,

You recently placed orders from the Epic Games Store. The price of the game(s) you purchased were recently lowered, so we are issuing partial refunds for the difference(s).

It's good and it makes good sense but I'm off board until they end exclusives. They're no bueno.

As long as the "exclusives" eventually make it to other stores... it doesn't bother me that much.

There are fairly few games coming out that are a close to a launch purchase for me. The closest I can think of would be Cyberpunk 2077 after a couple weeks of reviews (and some launch patching)... and maybe The new Vampire Masquerade game. (Same thing after a couple weeks of reviews and some launch patching.)

I don't pre-order, and I pretty much don't purchase on "day one". If I had to wait a few months for those games to get in the store I wanted (Which I won't... but we're talking hypothetically)... I wouldn't be that put out over it. By the time the game reach my store of choice it shoud be patched well, and possibly on sale by that point.
