Refund for playstation network game?

39 Replies 12,179 Views Created 02-05-2009

I've bought Megaman 9 off the PSN, it's utterly terrible.

I basically want a refund for this heap of crap, is that possible?

I read somewhere that there has been some sort of non refundable clause written into the agreement when you buy the game, is this the case and if so is this legal? Surely if I've bought a product and I'm unhappy with it I'm entitled to a refund?

Cheers

No, you can't get a refund.

 

It is written into the agreement, and is totally legal... otherwise they couldn't put it in there!

 

You can't 'return' a digital prodct. Even if they could refund you, how would they know that you've actually deleted the game?

 

Even with physical media, no shop would refund you because you 'think it's crap' - it's up to you to research before you buy it.

I bought fifa 14 with the Xmas deal recently.

Was playing it a day and its bugged. Can play the ultimate team single player tournament. Can I not return it?
Shouldn't the game at least work correctly. I've looked at ea forums and the games had this problem for 4 months according to some people.

Is there no way I can get reimbursed?

When you buy the game you agree to the T&Cs, this includes no refunds. Its the same when buying a physical disc game from a high street store. As soon as you tear off the wraper you cant get a refund just cause you dont like it.

All I can suggest is Research...

if you googled Megaman 9 or asked around first you could have got a pretty good idea of whether the game is worth its price..

Obviously everyone gets games they dont Enjoy........ And it's not Sony's Fault if you dont like it, (Especially with Megaman as it's a Capcom game)

But asking around will let you know it it exceedsexpectations,, plays well, looks good, or is justa waste of space.

For instance,, I've purchased 30-40 psn games,, And theres alot of quality out there. But i've never even considered megaman

There was a demo of Megaman 9 last time I checked, you could've tried it before you bought it. I just wish there were more demos of PSN games though... I seriously regret buying PAIN and Street Fighter 2 :( but ah well, most PSN games are utter poo anyway, only ones worth buying are Siren and Wipeout HD

There was a demo for Megaman.

The game is not crap at all, it just takes some skilful gameplayers to play it, Megaman is and always has been a challenging platform, its an unforgiving game, much like some of Capcoms other IPs.

Anyone who was here a year ago and downloaded the first Command & Conquer game from the PSN store knows the pain of the 'no refunds' rule.

 

Command & Conquer genuinely was unplayable as it ran at a speed so fast that only about 0.01% of the population could play it. We had a huge thread on the PS3 GD board petitioning for either a fix or a refund and in the end were told in no uncertain words that it was "Tough ****" basically.
