I can see how that makes a difference. I didn't think of that because in my country the only way I can return a game to the store once the plastic wrapping has been broken is if there are physical defects (e.g. scratched or broken discs). I don't even think I'm entitled to a refund if I accidentally buy a PS2 or Xbox version of the game I wanted for the PC.

But Acleacius is right: As a distribution channel Valve has no more say (nor responsibility) in what is being distributed via Steam than your local EB Games or whatever it is called.

"Chess in particular had always annoyed him. It was the dumb way the pawns went off and slaughtered their fellow pawns while the kings lounged about doing nothing that always got to him; if only the pawns united, maybe talked the rooks around, the whole board could've been a republic in a dozen moves." - Commander Vimes in Thud! by Terry Pratchett
