Someone has finally filed a class-action lawsuit against Sony for the removal of Other OS. I hope that this forces Sony to restore the functionality or pay those affected enough to restore the functionality (which would essentially mean giving each Other OS user a refund that would allow them to purchase another PS3 so that they can continue to use Other OS on the one that they have). I truly believe that Sony was in the wrong here, and hope that justice will prevail. Unfortunately, I know that Class Action lawsuits rarely get full and just compensation for those affected...
A Californian Playstation 3 user has filed the first class action lawsuit against Sony over removal of the 'Install Other OS' function from the Playstation 3. The action seeks to redress Sony's 'intentional disablement of the valuable functionalities originally advertised as available with the Sony Playstation 3 video game console.' The suit claims that the disablement breaches the sales contract between Sony and its customers and constitutes 'an unfair and deceptive business practice perpetrated on millions of unsuspecting customers.'
