$3.5 million in Australian dollars? What is that in U.S. dollars?

@onesiphorus: At a strict exchange based on the market, it's 2.1 million. Calculate fees and mark-ups, with that amount it shouldn't differ too heavily.

Good. They need to get sued a lot more for the things they've done this year. It's like they can't stand being in 1st place.

@peterroberts123456 Rockstar isn't very smart either.

Hopefully they also get fined for misleading people by passing off a 9.2 TFOPS console as a 10.28 one.

LOL shots fired.

Have you seen the latest patent? if true i'm not surprised they haven't shown the console yet.

Damn, that things going to sound like a vacuum everytime it starts to heat up.

More like...

Looks like they're trying to start a tradition lol.

Pretty lame of Sony to try and pass the buck on to the developer when they are more or less the final say and controller of what goes on their platform.

Developer might have made a poor game but Sony said "Nah bro, it's OK, we'll sell it".

Digital games on consoles has the strictest DRM yet these bastards(Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft) love to make refunds difficult.

Dude I tried to return the new Call of Duty after playing it for six hours (because it was a buggy, unplayable mess) but apparently because I had "Experienced a significant portion of the campaign" they wouldn't take it.

So, you know, nevermind that I bought this broken game to play online for 100+ hours....no no no, I played most of what I intended to play after six *shrug*

Lets see.

One is current news and related to gaming.

The other is ancient news and not related to gaming.

Crazy right.

Well, I know from stories if your PSN account gets hacked and your credit card on file is used to buy stuff like say a couple thousand dollars in microtransactions, Sony won't reverse charges, will only give back PSN credit, meaning user is still in dept at interest, and having credit card company reverse charges means Sony will wipe account clear, user loses rights to digitally owned games, trophies. Considering they won't even let victims of fraud have their money back, I doubt they'd give users refunds if they didn't have to.

Not true.

A few weeks ago, someone somehow made purchases totaling $90-ish dollars on my PSN account. I did an online chat w/ one of their reps (took about an hour to connect, it was a long qeue). After, a five minute conversation/probing. They refunded all charges.

I took apart my PS4 Pro, just to check how the supercharger for CPU works, but there's no such thing.

Should i sue them for misleading?

lol $3.5M

Still worth trying to refuse refunds, is probably Sony's takeaway from this.

It's definitely an issue to be aware of in the digital age, actual ownership of the digital content or simply a right to use until the servers themselves are shut down.

Sorry but I'm all in for digital purchases now. I just can't deal with physical games anymore besides Nintendo Switch, however.

Probably because the switch has limited memory solutions.

Nintendo does not offer any refunds whatsoever on digital purchases. That doesn't necessarily means this is Davillain's reason.

Limited storage on Switch despite you can upgrade to 32GB. Plus, they have the worst digital fronts and I rather just deal with Nintendo's game cards since they are small to put in my backpack ;)

I'll admit, sticking with physical games with Nintendo isn't really bad and I do my shopping over at Amazon.

I understand the memory issue which is legit. I don't get the digital storefronts thing, I mean doesn't have a search option, or game category search options?
