In re Sony PS3 “Other OS” Litigation Settlement E-mail
November 01, 2016

If you purchased a “Fat” PS3 in the United States between November 1, 2006, and April 1, 2010, from an authorized retailer for family, personal, and/or household use, you are a Class Member and may be eligible to submit a claim to receive a cash payment.

A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Sony Computer Entertainment America LLC (“SCEA”) challenging the issuance of a firmware update to disable the Other OS functionality from PlayStation® 3 “Fat” model computer entertainment consoles (“Fat PS3s”). The Other OS function enabled users to run Linux as an alternative operating system on Fat PS3s.

Class Members who submit a claim with the required proof of use of the Other OS feature are eligible to receive $55. Class Members who submit a claim with proof of purchase and attest that they intended to use the other OS function, lost value or desired functionality, or believe they were otherwise injured are eligible to receive $9.

Read more information on this settlement at Your rights and options, are explained on the Settlement Website. The deadline to submit claims is, December 7, 2016.

The Court will decide whether to approve the settlement. Proposed payments to Class Members who do not exclude themselves from the Settlement will be made if the Court approves the Settlement. Please, be patient and check the Settlement Website to find out when the cash payments may be available.
