Yes, plus throwing away $147 dollars (pricespy.co.nz) for a license.

If games are the primary use then they shouldn't go back anyway - there is simply no advantage.

As for the question they'll have to buy Windows 7 then clean install it.

For all the people that think 8-8.1 is not as good as 7 as far as a system goes are wrong, its just the look that put people off and it will never recover from that. 8-8.1 is a better system than 7. Why not go to 10 while free, an improvement again.
