Used to play Age of empires and everything for years never had to update it to play a game, hell it even played MW3 (Mechwarrior 3), You never forget your first....

This is something all major Australian retailers do, i've brought products from major retails (JB-HIFI) and the manual had thing actually written on it. Its sad. I think the the retailers think that people are still dumb, and dont know how to use their products so they just repackage them for the next person to buy and have problems with.
