Apparently the backlash against No Man’s Sky has reached new heights as Steam, PlayStation Network, as well as Amazon have been going easy on their refund policy. All of this broke over at our favorite place Reddit.
It was first discovered over at Steam that if you actually chatted with someone at Valve (instead of the automated service) and mentioned the key word “false advertisement” and you could get a refund, the same with PSN.
As of writing this Steam has updated their No Man’s Sky page and said they would no longer go outside their refund policy on this game. I’m sure Sony and Amazon will do the same if they haven’t already. So if you purchased the game on Steam you’re out of luck, but Amazon and PSN purchasers if you act fast you might get a refund.
