According to the details of the lawsuit concerning PS3 announced by the federal court of California, Sony plans to notify concerned parties of the results of class actions through the PlayStation network. This notice affects 77% of class actions and similar notices will be posted online. The contents of the notice that people who purchase PS3 in the United States between November 1, 2006 and April 1, 2010 can receive compensation of 9 dollars (about 900 yen) or 55 dollars (about 5600 yen) Thing.

The difference in compensation amount is because there is a condition "owns the PS3 and installs Linux," whether the PS3 purchase proof or serial number, the PlayStation Network login ID, and the functions of OS other than PS3 are used If you present the evidence that you are, you can receive a compensation of $ 55. Also, when I purchase PS3 I know the function of "Can install another OS", and if I claim to actually utilize that OS, I can receive $ 9.

The class action on PS3 has not ended completely, and a trial is scheduled on December 20, 2016, and all objections on settlement are expected to be resolved. If everything goes smoothly without causing actions such as appeal, compensation is paid in cash to the persons involved in class-action class actions. If compensation of up to 55 dollars is paid to everyone, the total amount is expected to reach tens of millions of dollars (about billions of yen).
