A report from the other day revealed that for some reason, the Windows 10 Store bought version of Activision’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare would not be playable with other copies of the game that were bought outside the Windows 10 Store, such as Steam. This meant that if you wanted to play with a friend who bought it on Steam, tough luck.
However the good news is that Microsoft will refund you the price of the game if you’re interested. According to a report from Motherboard, it seems that Microsoft is more than willing to hand out refunds if you bought the game from the Windows 10 Store. This is based on a post on Reddit in which the poster, hayz00s, claims his little brother bought the game from the Windows 10 Store, only to find that he was one of two people searching for a game, which obviously would never happen.
The poster claims that his brother called Microsoft to request for a refund and it was a painless process. Speaking to Motherboard, hayz00s said, “It was very easy. He said they were very courteous and didn’t give him any trouble trying to get the refund.” The only reason his brother went with the Windows 10 Store was because it was cheaper.
Now before you blame Microsoft for this confusion, apparently it was Activision’s decision to make the game run on separate servers for PC. We’re still not sure what is with that decision as the company has yet to acknowledge it, but perhaps you should purchase the game from Steam if you want to be able to skip this mess.
