As the constant cacophony of Cyberpunk 2077 news washes over us all, from CD Project Red stock prices falling to save files corrupting if you have too many items - there are many gamers deciding to take up the offer of a refund. However, it sounds like some of them don't really know how refunds work, and are upset that getting their money back on Cyberpunk requires them to stop playing the game.
In a report from The Gamer, at least one Cyberpunk 2077 player didn't realise that contacting Microsoft and requesting a refund for the game would result in them lifting the game from their console. The tweet from the angry fan says, "Xbox Support, I just got refunded for Cyberpunk but now you guys are removing it from my console? I wanna play the game still! You scammed the world by allowing a game to be released and sold on your console that does not work and will not work for months."
Although you can argue the commenter might have a point when it comes to Cyberpunk misleading people into believing the product was ready on consoles when it wasn't, it's all a little bit of a stretch to think you should keep the game if you want it refunded. It's a bit like eating a meal at a restaurant and after finishing your steak, telling the staff you hated it and won't be paying for the meal. It doesn't really work like that.

The original account that tweeted the complaint is now suspended but Tom Warren from The Verge immortalised the tweet with a screenshot. It's also now the case that some people are tweeting the same phrase and screenshot as a bit of a meme around Twitter too.
So all-in-all, if you are one of the gamers who want to refund the game after it not meeting your expectations, don't be surprised when the game disappears from your library okay? Go and enjoy some of what we consider the best 100 games ever made if you're really stuck for a new video game fix.
