    Hi Guys,

    I saw this article by chance on the PC Gamer website. Regarding how Electronic Arts has altered its Origin refund policy in Australia due to some government agency called the "ACCC (Australian Competition and Consumer Commission)".

    Here's a full quote of the article linked above: (Dated today April 28th, 2015)

    According to the article above the ACCC is also in litigation with Valve's Steam. For a similar alteration in their refund policy as well for Aussie consumers.

    Use something like the Hola extension for Chrome and purchase via the Mexican Origin store :D
