Not sure If this has happened to anyone else, but here goes: (TLDR; at the end)
I launched the game yesterday evening and while sitting at the title menu, I checked my PSN notifications. (I checked by long-pressing the PS home button, not by returning to the PS4 menu).
I sent a message to a friend and then closed the PS4 quick menu (not sure what it’s actually called) and was a little confused when I noticed I was sitting at the menu, but the ATOM shop was displayed in the background. There was also a message saying “you have signed out of your currently logged in profile and will be disconnected from the server”. I shrugged and clicked to continue.
From there, I glanced at my friends list to see who was online, and then visited SCORE Board. And that’s when I noticed something else was weird. I was missing ATOMS? Why?
Clicked on the store to investigate, and I noticed fairly quickly I was the unknowing owner of the Gold Mr. Fuzzie Ride (which I never would have bought).
Sat there and thought about everything and then had the idea, “did the game buy this while I was sending a message?”
So, I clicked the share button and saved the video clip to go back and watch everything.
Of course, the video clip didn’t show me composing a message, but what it did show was very spastic button mashing and the purchasing of the ride.
Fortunately I only had roughly 800 atoms, or else I would have purchased several more things. Fortunately You can’t purchase more atoms right then and there, or I surely would have been billed for a lot.
I submitted a ticket to Bethesda, requesting a refund and letting them know what happened. Will update if they respond.
Here’s a link to the video for anyone interested: https://youtu.be/5HNxjFP_o2o
TLDR ;I don’t know how, or why, but me typing a PSN messaged managed to control the game at the same time. I unknowingly bought a stupid item I don’t want and nearly bankrupt myself lol.
- I experienced a bug at 2 am that seemed straight out from a Creepy pasta.
- I’m at a loss. Is there a way to buy Elsweyr and Summerset separately?
- New to PSVR, setting up and issues with freezing and lag with Motion Controllers
