Do you ever fully read the terms and conditions (T&Cs) for online purchases and games you play? A lot of gamers don't and plenty found out the hard way just how ignoring the terms and conditions can cost you. Bit-Tech reports that GameStation, a popular computer game retailer in the UK, recently announced that as part of an attempt to show just how few people read the terms and conditions of an online sale they had added the "Immortal Soul Clause" to their terms and conditions agreement, which gives the company legal ownership over the buyers immortal soul. 88% of the customers did not read the clause, but the 12% that read and opted out were given a £5 GBP gift voucher. Luckily, GameStation executives are letting the players off the hook as they won't be enforcing their claim to the more than 7,500 souls they now own.
