Lately, we've seen a lot of broken games release on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. Titles we expected to have a semblance of quality — like Call of Duty: Vanguard or Battlefield 2042 — have been riddled with bugs and performance issues. In previous years, the main problem would be cheaters. However, now we have to worry if the title will crash your console or even maintain an acceptable frame rate.
While Call of Duty: Vanguard has quickly seen improvements over the past few months, Battlefield 2042 continues to be plagued with major server, stability, and performance problems. Countless Battlefield 2042 owners are frustrated because they expected the game to be in a much better state by now. Many have also joined together in a Change.org petition to demand refunds for the game from the PlayStation Store. You can read an excerpt from it below.
According to many consumer reports, Electronic Arts and DICE did not keep many promises made at launch, and Battlefield 2042 was launched as unplayable. Even today, Battlefield 2042 has bugs that drastically change the in-game experience so much that it’s deemed an unfinished release by many community members ... Battlefield 2042 was so poorly made that even Steam ... allows customers to get a full refund.
The petition has over 70,000 signatures at the moment, but the number is growing rapidly. Hopefully, those gamers who want refunds will be able to get them. It seems like Sony has one of the most Draconian policies when it comes to denying refunds out of all the major platforms.
It'll be interesting to see if platform holders on consoles and PC will respond to this petition.
