Normally people get a refund for a game if they are unhappy with it, but only if they have played it for a short time. A former Sony developer doesn’t like people getting refunds for No Man’s Sky when they have played it for more than 50 hours.
Shahid Kamal Ahmad (who was Sony Europe’s Director for Strategic Content) posted a series of tweets expressing his problem with some gamers asking for a refund for No Man’s Sky after they played 50 hours of it already.
He said: “If you’re getting a refund after playing a game for 50 hours you’re a thief. Here’s the good news: Most players are not thieves. Most players are decent, honest people without whose support there could be no industry. I’ll say it again. 50 hours. How long do they need, 5 billion hours? They still wouldn’t have seen it all“.
He clarified in another tweet that he doesn’t have a problem with people asking for a refund for a game, just those that have played it for a long time. As you may know already, a lot of people felt misled with No Man’s Sky and want their money back.
If you have played the game already, you’ll know it doesn’t offer much. The gameplay gets monotonous after a while and the planets all start to look the same after just a few hours of gameplay.
