You can use the official mobile application of PlayStation to request a refund for a digital game or downloadable content you bought from the PlayStation Store. To find out how you can properly get your money back, you can follow this tutorial from Overly Technical.
In order to get a refund for a game or DLC pack, you must submit the request within 14 days of the purchase date.
It is important to note that if you have started to download or stream the game or expansion you bought, then you won’t be able to get a refund. The lone exception to this rule is that the game you purchase is considered to be faulty, which is what happened when Cyberpunk 2077 originally came out for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
Keep in mind that the eligibility may be different depending on your country. This is based on getting a refund from the U.S. region.
