Vita Lawsuit Results In Early Adopters Getting Cash, Free Games
Later last year, Sony agreed to a settlement over a PlayStation Vita lawsuit and now, customers can cash in.
As a result of the lawsuit brought forth by the Federal Trade Commission concerning the technical capabilities of the gaming portable, gamers who purchased the Vita before June 1, 2012 are eligible for some compensation.
According to this letter sent to customers, you will receive:
- $25 cash (in the form of a check)
- $25 PlayStation Store credit
- One of three game bundles ranging in value from $66.46 to $100.46 (see them here)
The FTC says Sony claimed the Vita would "revolutionize gaming mobility" by letting us play our PS3 titles on the Vita via Remote Play. However, the FTC believe this was a misleading advertising ploy. Now, Sony may have agreed to this settlement, but the company "neither admits nor denies liability in connection with this matter."
Oh, and bear in mind that by accepting this settlement, you waive your right to any future settlement.
