Okay, a tiny inaccuracy in the thread title but you're here, aren't you? Basically what's happening is that people are using their PS4 pads to play Dark Souls II on PS3, but the pad is controlling the PS4 at the same time without their knowledge and so people are ending up buying all sorts of crap from the PSN store. Sony are refusing refunds.

Ok, most of you will find this funny (I know I would), I'm fuming.
Playing Dark Souls 2 on the PS3 with my PS4 controller, I leave my PS4 on as it's downloading updates.
Turns out the controller can control both at the same time.
So my inputs on Dark Souls buy me FIFA on PS4 (a game I already own) and British Cop skin pack (I don't even know what this is). Get an email on my tablet telling me so.
Ask to speak to his superior and they won't come on the phone. He then tells me support staff have said it's not possible to control two devices at once. He doesn't seem to believe me.
Half of me wants to trade this in for an Xbox with Titanfall right now.
It's hilarious really, but at the same time a pretty horrible system flaw, and it's absurd that Sony aren't refunding this, especially when their system seems to allow for licenses to be revoked so the purchase could just be reversed and access to the game removed.
Yeah, hi. *Raises hand* Me too. Kind of. I had two Dark Souls sessions - at midnight, when the PS4 pad seemed to work fine, and at lunchtime, when I couldn't get it to work. Can't remember why, but it must have been disconnected when I turned the PS3 on, as fixing it took switching everything off, plugging it in (changing USB port at the time), and restarting. Then it worked. When I saw the standby light on the PS4 later on, I figured I'd just turned it on. I was mortified when I saw Battlefield there, and then I noticed that I'd watched a film as well.
I guess it must have been in that time that the PS4 pad wasn't properly connected to the PS3 that it happened. Notwithstanding the distance selling point, I appreciate that I might not have a leg to stand on, but I'll be looking to ask anyway - I can't easily weather a £68 loss. Hell, I have zero interest in Battlefield 4 (hey, if only there was some way of selling on digital content...), if it had been Assassin's Creed 4, or Need for Speed at the same price, or Strider/Trine 2 for £15 or so, I probably could have taken it on the chin. So, yeah, fuming is a word I can get on board with. Guess I'll email Sony, but I'll be leaving my dignity at the door.
Really taken the shine off what was an otherwise great day. My birthday, as it happens. And do keep laughing - I've laughed at it now and then, it doesn't really pay to get too snarled up over it.
Buy me some shit on PSN I don't want if old.
