    Sony Giving refunds to PS3 users

    Sony refunding all PS3 owners for removing an advertised feature
    June 6 2010
    In the end of April the firm had filed a class action lawsuit against Sony Computer Entertainment America, Inc., for Sony's decision to force users of its Playstation 3 console to either install an update that would disable the console's "Other OS" feature or lose the ability to play games with other users in the network. Because Sony failed to defend it's intentions in court, the judge decided that Sony will have to pay every PS3 owner, who bought his PS3 before March 27, 2010, a refund of 50% of the price when purchased.

    The firm thanks all the PS3 owners who mailed, which made our voice even louder. PS3 owners that haven't mailed us should make contact with Sony Computer Entertainment America, Inc to claim their refund. An European firm will also file a class action law suit against Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, Inc. We hope that we've done the PS3 owners a service. We are very glad as this is once of the biggest victory's in our firm's history.

    Sony will also be at handing out refunds at "E3", a large video-gaming event, to all registered PS3 owners. A new article will be posted very soon on how Sony will be handling this matter.

    Is it true? i guess we will see at E3

    Dang that sucks for Sony. How massive is the refund? Is it a billion dollar plus hit to Sony?

    Not sure, some places are saying that the site got hacked and Sony hasn't agreed to anything yet, and the deadline is at the end of the month or something

    I think Sony can easily minimize the damage by having to have people APPLY for the refund as well as provide some form of PoP.

    Re: Sony Giving refunds to PS3 users

    Console manufactures track purchases by serial #. Well at least for those that are bought at GameStop they do. So anyone who bought there PS# at GS should be safe as far as PoP. The reason they are track this way is so they can track warranties.
