Microsoft Tests Auto Refunds for Xbox One and Windows 10

By Gary Cutlack on at

Microsoft is testing a self-service refunds system on Xbox One that also applies to Windows 10 users, which lets people get their money back as long as they've not been hammering the game in question all weekend.

The blurb explains: "You’ve spoken; we've listened. In support of offering gamers the freedom of choice, we're making changes to the Microsoft Store purchase experience by offering customers a simple way to instantly return digital products like games and apps," with the criteria being that players must have spent no longer than two hours in the game, and can't have let more than 14 days elapse since purchase.

Downloadable content and season passes and all the other modern crap that tries to gouge money out of players are not covered, though, but it's still nice to have a full two hours to smash around in something to assure yourself that the reviewers weren't all bribed into giving it good marks with free t-shirts and promotional mugs.

Members of the Xbox One and Windows alpha preview Insider Programs are the first to get/test the feature. [Reddit via MCV]
