CDPR made the statement to come across as doing the right thing, knowing that there is no agreement in place and is now backtracking stating that publisher rules apply. This is not rocket science or a mystery and CDPRs legal team knows full well what rules apply in their contract with Sony and Microsoft regardless of what they write on Twitter.


....this is not the case, and it seems many players found that out when they’ve tried to request refunds. Eurogamer reports that players have had mixed results from trying to request refunds from Microsoft and Sony. One user on Twitter posted screenshots of a conversation with Sony customer support in which they were refused a refund.

Nice

They are essentially saying they are providing refund, subject to platform holder (Sony/Microsoft) permission and ruling since that's their platforms. On GOG/Steam, you can refund easier, often with no issue.

If someone's transferring you money and you didn't receive it because the bank is blocking your bank account from receiving money...there's nothing that someone can do.

Nice

Really?

Ah.

Let's review their original statement, to check whether there's ambiguity there.
Direct verbatim quotes:

"For copies purchased digitally, please use the refund system of PSN or Xbox respectively. "

"For boxed versions, please first try to get a refund at the store where you bought the game "

"Should this not be possible, please contact us at helpmerefund@cdprojektred.com and we will do our best to help you. . "

Words. What do they mean?
Is it open season on CDPR?
