One of the big criticisms levelled at Sony is that they usually don’t like giving any kind of refund, not even for games on pre-order. But on occasion, some circumstances essentially force them to concede, which is the case when both The Last of Us Part II and Iron Man VR got delayed indefinitely.
Reported by PlayStation Lifestyle, it was revealed that all digital pre-orders will receive a refund for both games which was delayed indefinitely last week due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Interestingly enough, they also note that both games have been delisted from the PSN Store. If you search either game there, you’ll either find nothing or just some avatars and skins.
Not too much should be read into it being removed from the digital storefront simply because Sony does tend to not list games without a scheduled release date. Still, any chance of the games being released early in digital format seems to be out the window.
So, for now, it seems we just need to be patient and hope it doesn’t take too long for the world to return to normality so we can continue what we’re doing anyway, which is staying at home and playing video games.
Please note that the refund is automatic and if you did pre-order it digitally, you should receive an email with more information in the next few days.
