Forums - Sony Discussion - PS3 class action lawsuit

After a successful class action lawsuit against the PS2 and, more recently, the Vita, it seems it's the PS3's turn to get sued. Apparently, Sony has to pay $65 to PS3 "phat" owners for the feature that they cut.  If you want in, here you go:

I submitted my name last night. $65 is $65!  Personally, I'd love to see one for the Xbox One and the disabling of the "snap" function. Somebody get the ball rolling on that one!

This isn't new news. I could swear we had a thread on it already last year.

Not doing it. I didn't get the PS3 to have a second OS, and I'm not going to pretend I did.

That is disingenuous at best. I'm not hard up for money I need to lie about it.

Also this is really old news. It is just getting mentioned because I think this is the last month you can clam it?



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Do not think I from Canada benefit from this.

The suit began last year but now it's over and Sony lost. Now it's time to real the rewards.

 

The two people that began the lawsuit are supposed to get like $400,000. Everybody else gets $65 apiece. Originally, it was $55 but for some reason we get another ten bucks.

I can't blame anyone for taking free money, but the "Other OS" thing is something I never ever cared about on my PS3 - I bet most are the same.



Mine broke a few years ago, got it on 2007 but I don't even live in the US even if I bought it there. I guess I'll pass

Yeah, I mean I'm sure we already had a thread about it being over and people being able to claim money. I remember people posting here about not having their receipts so they couldn't claim and stuff like that. There's even this article saying they settled in 2016 and people can now claim, so it definitely didn't begin last year if it was settled the year before that https://www.polygon.com/2016/10/12/13261780/ps3-otheros-linux-lawsuit-settlement-claims

As much as I would like the free game, I didn't buy the PS3 for that.



PS2 and Vita had lawsuits against them?
