Re: PS Store Showing Free Items When It's Not

I got affected by this and they got me for 22 dollars...

 

4 Digital Blasphemy themes for 2.99 each and Alien Breed...Checked out without a confirmation page because had I seen that I would be charged instead of free then I most definitely would have cancelled. Hopefully I can get a refund all tho they did give the all sales are final speech.

I did the same thing downloading stuff for Playstation All-Stars because it said that it was free, then I got messages that I didn't have enough money in my wallet to buy more items which I thought was weird since it said it was free. A little bit later all the things that said they were free had prices on them. I was **bleep** because I never would have paid for the items. Luckily I use the prepaid cards and I'm only out $3.50 or so because I have a feeling I'll never get that money back from Sony.

That happened to me as well with Alien Breed.  I only got it because I thought it was free for both regular and plus users. I was even about to tell my friends who dont have plus that a free game was available. Yet, without telling that I was going to spend money nor the remaining amount that I would have left in my wallet afterwards, I was charged and notified when it was too late.I only wanted to give it a try because it was free.  I dont mind if I lose access to the game. It is a good game, but i wasnt planning to get it now. I was saving money for the Dragonborn DLC and now I cant anymore without buying another PSN card.

 

Is this event a first time in the store? Or was I too hasty checking the store? Some of the content didnt even had images in their descriptions

I got charged as well. I downloaded some KOF XIII DLC thinking they are free, but no. There was no confirmation, no checkout menu, just went straight to download.

 

I even got picture proof, but I don't know how to post pictures.

yo, I got charged for "free" alien breed to...it does'nt matter this much to me, since it's not even 10$ but if you can figure out my account, delete the game in the downloadlist and kinda "revert" the purchase and refund the money, I would still be happy^^

 

btw...guys...mistakes can happen to anyone, especially when there are dozens of people working stressfully for whatever reason, so dont let it get you down! just keep going^^

Another Sony miss up! I got charged over $20 for my free stuff.

 

So free stuff isn't free and stuff you pay for doesn't actually work (Motorstorm RC). I also had 9 months without access to over half of my "PLUS" content (that I was paying for).

 

Sony's PSN must be run by monkeys.

 

Miss ups happen bla bla bla... I buy lots of stuff from Steam, GMG, and Xbox Live and none of this stuff ever happens with their services!
