Not only was he wrong about that, but also about Street Fighter stuff being unavailable via Player Inspect. It still is.

Stole my thoughts and words completely my friend. I know right? What a scam that was, Because everybody on here including myself love to just pay for stuff we did not end up keeping or ends up not being as rare as it was intended to be.  lol fail on erroring it out on NA servers, but in EU servers is it errored out and is not inspecible. Fail on erroring out THC content in EU, yet in NA we cann't buy them any longer. Not sure i understood the logic in this, but it's rather disappointing.

That's the cost of doing business online. Every convienence comes with its pitfalls. This is one of them. Should have spent your money on chewing gum.

Re: Can we have our money back from Evil Tree?

the fact they were going under was called months to maybe a year ago by now when i told them they should listen to the majority of users instead of some little focus group. after that they totally sold out & things went sour. you guys don't like me or my opinions but i'm right more times than i'm wrong. 

 

back to the subject, it's stupid they're revoking purchased items BUT lets go back to another bit of information i told you all before. YOU DO NOT OWN A SINGLE LINE OF CODE IN PS HOME, you buy licences to access these things but you do not own them at all. not only can you not get a refund, you can't be guaranteed perpetual access to the items & they can be subject to full removal at any time without notice. 

 

this isn't some made up BS to get you mad, it's the reality behind all this that YOU need to know. if you don't like it you shouldn't have agreed to the ToS & you should have read all of it before you agreed. yes i realise nobody reads it but that's half the problem, you cry foul but in certain courts you legally agreed to the terms you never read that tells you this. 

 

they could be putting in clauses that say SCEA legally has permission to enter your house & search it and you wouldn't know about it because you didn't read it. weather they find your S&M dungeon or not is subject to your hiding abilities or your lack of them & weather they escape or not is really another subjective matter BUT it's the principle of the thing. you have to be aware of what you're doing & what you agree to online or you'll find out you'll regret it at some point. you can't let yourself get distracted by the thought of other things i.e. social interaction, a game you want to play, a prize you want to win etc. take 5 minutes to read what you agree to & weigh the risk vs reward better.

Brace yourselves ban hammers are swinging...

I call foul. When the Manager of Digital Platforms for North America explicity states that the purchases will stay in our inventories upon store removal, that whole 'read the tos' line is bs. I have had refunds for lesser issues, we deserve either the content to be returned or in worst case, yes a refund, sorry but any other alternative is unacceptable.

I don't understand why they pulled the items that people bought.  I mean, when Irem was pulled, items that were bought, stayed, and people can still buy them through inspect.  But now with this, it's like people paid for them, and now they are not in the store and those who bought it, have it taken away from them.  What if other big name companies did that?  Imagine how people would feel if Lockwood went bankrupt and instead of letting people keep their stuff, they just took it all away.  Or even worse, what if PSH was removed.  Imagine all the rage from people mad that Home is gone and all the money they spent, was just flushed away.

Phew, glad I never bought any evil tree stuff. It was all junk anyways. Hope the people that did get a refund or items returned, since it was stated they'd stay in your inventories. Stuff like this happening isn't exactly encouraging people to make purchases on here, especially anyone new to PS Home.

Honestly I feel maybe now, there needs to be laws put in place to protect the consumer. Its like the phone company offering a plan and removing it at their descretion and not saying anything yet we still paid for it. We may not own the item but we pay for the right to use it and we have a right to know if something is being removed from our inventory.
