heatDrive88;4881686 said:I'm sure like many others, I simply confirmed the purchase without noticing that Microsoft hasn't updated the price on their end yet, even though the Rock Band storefronts have the discounts listed.In this case, are we going to get the difference of money/points back for our purchase? I probably wouldn't have made the purchase had I known this would happen.
howieduen;4881707 said:Ditto. I would like to know who to contact for a refund on points.
hmxhenry;4881876 said:We're still waiting on updates from Microsoft (who are 3 hours behind our office FYI) regarding the store updates, so until we post otherwise I would STRONGLY recommend that people pay VERY close attention to store pricing, the confirmation screen pricing and the final purchase price. Since we don't control the final pricing on Microsoft's end, I can't provide a definitive list of what has already been discounted and what is still waiting. We'll see if we can get next steps on getting refunds, but that's not something we control or have access to.
HobbinGuy;4882107 said:I also would vote for a refund. I get it -- I should have noticed the second price -- but since the store price said 80, I didn't pay attention to the second screen. Granted, it's only $1, but when you are planning to get dozens of songs, it adds up. Please keep us updated once it's all sorted out.
THEELIMINATOR;4882419 said:Just letting ye guy know, that with PS3 EU (Ireland in my case) there has been no budge on the price of any of the songs from what I cant see, whether on the displayed price or when you go to checkout. Checked the PSN store and the sales tab on both RB3 and Blitz. Not really surprised tbh, I would have been more surprised if Sony EU didn't make a hash of it.
hmxhenry;4882450 said:As per the original announcement, the expectation has been that SCEE would update later today when the DLC usually goes live, so it's not too surprising that prices haven't been updated yet. I'll give SCEE until the end of the day to start their roll out, but the Sony America launch went very smoothly so that's a good sign.
chuftybadge;4882603 said:hmxhenry... There is a simple way to test the system, just try and purchase some songs yourself then await the outcome. Don't take this as a dig at the harmonix team because the games are great, but i do think that a bit more thought and testing needs to go into something like this rather than thinking " I know how can we make a quick few bucks in a short space of time "
originalvonster;4882624 said:The UK store has been updated with the new pricing but for the single tracks I can confirm that there has only been a 35% discount, not a 50% like first announced!
LAKUWAVE;4882476 said:I just noticed also that pricing was different in rock band store view and live marketplace. I got a bit scared because i had by then purchased 10 songs, but when i checked my xbox live account billing information, it showed that correct amount of points were taken from my account.
jargonfacer;4882760 said:As long as I don't run out of time to throw my money at the DLC before it goes back to regular price, I'm fine with waiting a bit longer.
hmxhenry;4882710 said:We're touching bases with SCEE about this and the initial response has been that local market conditions will vary, but there will still be substantial savings worldwide. Italy, for example, should have the intended 50% discount from what we've been told, but other countries in Europe are affected differently. We don't have complete control over pricing, especially internationally, where conversion rates can change drastically from dollars to pounds to Euro to local currency. We'll reach out for more info, but it's unlikely that SCEE will be able to change their entire conversion and pricing structure, which affects all DLC across all titles.
