“Refund” for PS5 Maneater Player after PS Plus is included

Shark RPG Maneater for PS5 will be available on PlayStation Plus in January, and Sony will surprisingly refund to those who have already purchased it.

Only yesterday Sony announced a lineup of free games that will appear on PlayStation Plus in January. This includes the PS5 version of Maneater.

However, due to a surprising move from the company, Sony seems to be refunding to PlayStation Plus subscribers who have already purchased the game.

According to Brae Whyit, a Reddit user who just bought a Maneater for the PS5 last month, Sony sent me the following message:

‘Because this is a PlayStation Plus monthly game, as a PlayStation Plus subscriber, we will refund the purchase price of this product to the PlayStation Store wallet. This does not affect your ability to play the game, as you have not removed the game from the library.

BraeWhyit adds that his account is in the US region and has not yet received a refund, but refunds tend to take several days to process.

In addition, BraeWhyit says it still owns the original license, so if you decide to unsubscribe from PlayStation Plus, you won’t lose access to the game.

Other users in the comment mentioned receiving the same message and reported that PushSquare was contacted by someone with the same experience.

Please note that this is likely to apply only to Maneater digital copies, as Sony cannot refund copies purchased from other retailers such as Amazon or GAME.

The question now is whether this will be the new norm. We welcome automatic refunds, as there are frequent incidents where PS Plus users buy a game at a fixed price and find out that the same game will be free the following month.

At the time of writing, Sony has not yet commented on whether this will become the norm, at least for the PS5 games included in the PlayStation Plus.

Maneater for PS5 will be available to PS Plus users on January 5th, along with the PlayStation 4 games Shadow Of The Tomb Raider and Greedfall.

Maneater is available for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, and PC. The version of Nintendo Switch is scheduled for 2021.
