Newsbrief: While Valve doesn't usually allow for refunds via Steam, UK studio Codemasters has worked with the company to offer refunds for Colin McRae Rally following complaints about the game's store page description.

Some customers complained that the store page for the new Colin McRae Rally didn't state that this was a port of the mobile version, rather than a HD remake of the original game.

Now Codemasters has posted on the Steam forums, stating that it has updated the store page description, and is offering refunds to people who have bought the game and feel cheated.

Unfortunately, this is not the first time a publisher has ported a PC game to mobile, then re-ported the mobile game back to PC, then disguised the port-of-a-port as the original PC game and sold it on Steam. Meridian4 performed this same trick with the Dracula trilogy: http://steamcommunity.com/id/jasonmcarver/recommended/289840/

I really hope this doesn't turn into a trend.
