Yup, this is why I didn't buy it and why I'm always cautious buying games that register themselves to accounts, be it Steam, EA or what ever. The only time I ever throw caution to the wind is the Steam sales as the prices are so low.
If I buy a digital or retail title that ties itself to an account, find it awful then I can't get a refund. If it was anything else, you wouldn't have a problem under the SOGA or DSRs. We have some of the best consumer law in the world, yet we can't get a refund for anything digital tied to an account. Sure I see the reasoning, piracy etc but if there was a proper system in place that you could get a refund and the title be removed from my Steam/EA etc account I'd be all for it. Brink is one of those titles I paid a fair bit for, found awful and was stuck with.
Just seems silly in this day and age. :|

That sucks :/ what made you decide to purchase it prior to reviews?

I had a look at Dust on Steam when I heard about all the refunds by Steam due to ubisoft applying always online DRM which it supposedly shouldn't of had but couldn't find mention of this on the Steam store page.

However for boxed copies this wouldn't be an issue if the key was never shown in the account and since you have the physical copy all would be well.

Oh well, just wait for EA to steal the time idea and stick it in C&C:TimeWars :p
