I have some questions to ask you, because I am an inquisitive person.
The first one is this, do you buy games off the internet?
Secondly, if so, have you read the small print?
If not, be warned… be very, very, warned…
The gaming giant GameStation decided to put their online customers to the test. They have changed their Terms and Conditions, and added this to it…
“By placing an order via this web site on the first day of the fourth month of the year 2010 Anno Domini, you agree to grant Us a non transferable option to claim, for now and for ever more, your immortal soul. Should We wish to exercise this option, you agree to surrender your immortal soul, and any claim you may have on it, within 5 (five) working days of receiving written notification from gamestation.co.uk or one of its duly authorised minions.”
The small print continues, adding that they have the right to “serve such notice in six foot high letters of fire”. Though if you either don’t believe you have a soul, or you basically gave it away to your friend for a hobnob, you had the chance to nulify your soul transfer. Clicking on the link underneath this small print takes you to a new page… giving you a £5 off code to use on it’s website – gamestation.co.uk
GameStation stated that around 7,500 customers sold their souls away on the day.
So, a lesson is to be learned from this, my child. If you do not read the print of the small variety thoroughly, you could place your soul at risk… either that or your missing out on a free £5 off online purchases.
So what’s it to be?…
