PS3 Class Action Lawsuit Settlement Announced

This is interesting, wonder how legit it is. I looked over the site and it does seem to be a standard claim site.

 

IF YOU PURCHASED A SONY “FAT” PLAYSTATION® 3 COMPUTER
ENTERTAINMENT CONSOLE BETWEEN NOVEMBER 1, 2006 AND APRIL 1, 2010, A CLASS  ACTION SETTLEMENT MAY AFFECT YOU

The sole purpose of this notice is to inform you of the settlement so that you can decide what to do.

A proposed settlement has been reached in the nationwide class action lawsuit, In re Sony PS3 “Other OS” Litigation, United States District Court, Northern District of California, Case No. C-10-1811 (YGR). This lawsuit challenges the decision to disable the Other OS functionality from “Fat” PS3 computer entertainment consoles through Firmware Update 3.21, released on April 1, 2010. “Fat” PS3 consoles were consoles manufactured with the ability to install a Linux operating system as an alternative to the game operating system. Sony Computer Entertainment America LLC (“SCEA”) (n/k/a Sony Interactive Entertainment America LLC) is the defendant and denies all allegations.

If the settlement is approved and you are a Class Member, you may be eligible to submit a claim for benefits. You are a Class Member if you purchased a Fat PS3 between November 1, 2006 and April 1, 2010 from an authorized retailer for family, personal and/or household use and you:  (1) used the Other OS functionality; (2) knew about the Other OS functionality; or (3) contend or believe that you lost value or desired functionality or were otherwise injured as a consequence of Firmware Update 3.21 and/or the disablement of Other OS functionality in the Fat PS3.   Class Members will be eligible to receive a cash payment up to $65 per valid claim, the exact amount of which will depend on how many valid claims are submitted.  The deadline for submitting claim forms is April 15, 2018. Claim forms are available on the Settlement Website or may be obtained by calling the Settlement Administrator.

You may choose to exclude yourself from the settlement by sending your name, address, PS3 serial number, PlayStation Network Sign-In ID and/or PlayStation Network Online ID, along with a statement that you wish to be excluded to the Settlement Administrator at the address below. If you exclude yourself, you will not receive anything but will retain your right to sue. You may also object to the settlement with the option to appear at the final approval hearing with your own attorney at your cost. If you do nothing or object to the settlement, you will be bound by its terms and cannot later sue SCEA.  All exclusion requests and objections must be submitted by April 15, 2018.

If you filed a claim with the Settlement Administrator for a benefit under the previous proposed settlement of the above-referenced class action litigation, you do not need to resubmit.  To check on the status of your previous claim, please contact the Settlement Administrator.
