PlayStation is refunding South African gamers after overcharging for Battlefield 1

South African gamers have started receiving notifications from the PlayStation team regarding a technical issue on the PlayStation Store.

Gamers who purchased Battlefield 1 from the PlayStation Store may have been overcharged due to this technical problem, and are now being refunded for the amount they were overcharged when buying the game.

This follows a recent series of local pricing issues for EA games in South Africa, with a great disparity between different platforms.

Nick de Bruyne, founder of Pennyworth Reviews, tweeted the notification PlayStation sent out regarding the technical issue and refund.

According to de Bruyne, he originally purchased the game for R1,399 and has been credited with R250, bringing the cost of the game in line with its current price of R1,149 on the PlayStation Store.

The price of Battlefield 1 on the PlayStation Store is still R350 more than its price on the Xbox Store, which is also the case for other EA titles such as Titanfall 2.

MyGaming has reached out to PlayStation for comment regarding this pricing disparity and the technical issues on the PlayStation Store, but we received no comment by the time of publication.
