EA has a strange policy that says you can’t get refunds for digital copies of games obtained from its Origin service, but that all seems a little fishy. Mark over at Kotaku has done some digging about whether you can actually get a refund, and it’s well-worth a read if you’re a disgruntled Mayor. [Kotaku]
