Must sign up at link below/mail in claim

If you’re a Playstation user, you may be getting money back after a proposed settlement arrangement was announced between plaintiffs and Sony Computer Entertainment of America – the makers of the Playstation 3 gaming console, among others.

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.

You have to provide proof if you file the claim – but it’s not hard. Just use either your PS3 serial number, your PSN email or your PSN username.

Visit this link to file your claim online. 

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.
