Tried to register twice just now and "An Error Has Occured" showed up on the page. Anyone else having issues?

Same problem, seems they should be sued for incompetence eh? :lol:

A friend still has my launch model system so guess I am in luck here. Thanks for posting this.

I'm guessing this doesn't work if your PS3 was banned for CFW at one point...

Wow, was looking for my serial # and my wife had a file with the original receipt w/ SN.  Easy peasy

Thanks OP for posting.  I'm in the class but somehow missed this previously.

probably because they amended the terms after the first settlement was rejected by the courts. previously you could only join if you had actively used the Other OS and had a receipt/serial number. now you just have to say you knew about it and have multiple ways to show proof of ownership.

I traded in my OG phat ps3 for the slim but I just picked a fat ps3 up at a hard sale not too long ago.

So do you have to pick either 1,2, or 3 here? If so will your answer affect the payout amount? I knew about it, but I don't think I ever used it.

 

In order to receive a payment, you will have to attest, under penalty of perjury, that you : (1) used the Other OS functionality; or (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.

I have an original Phat with Linux still on it. Do I need to do a system update in or to qualify for the $65? I want to leave it with the current OFW which still has a Linux partition.

LOL i just unplugged it from the dresser it's been sitting on, unused, for the past 5 years, and thought to myself, "Holy shit, this thing weighs more than the OG XBOX."

Same, man.

I will go ahead and submit a claim. Recently got a launch 60gb model and it would be cool to get something back.

Let it go and leave it alone. Otherwise this'll be the REAL reason our PSN goes up to $75/year and new patches and updates will Harass us every week to make sure no bugs exist; aND then raise the price on the ps5, as I damn well hope there are no more PS4 version updates
Lol
(I kid, but not so much about this place raise PSN, maybe , who knows??)

Since I never used Linux or would have, I decided to not partake in this. I did have to pay sony for a ylod fix but whatever. Like many here think, it'll probably be 10 bucks when the payout finally comes.

What was the vita claim about? I have a dead vita after it got updated awhile back and wont turn on anymore. Bought it new too.

ps3 remote play which they never used.  It eventually ended up a feature of the ps4.

Good memory, that's definitely what happened.

I traded my 80GB backwards compatible ps3 to gamestop years ago. However, I recently found the receipt of the trade in and it has the serial number. However, I can't make out one number since the ink on receipt faded. It's either a 5,6,or8.

Then comes the PSN ban after we file. :bomb:


And since they have our serial number I'm sure they can activate a YLOD. Maybe I'm pessimistic but I just don't trust corporations.

Ha... yeah, same here. As soon as I got it, I was thinking 'RDR2, here I come!!' but after opening it, I'm more like 'well, guess I can use it for lunch'.

I know, it hardly seems worth the perjury a lot of you had to commit to qualify for the payment.

Was that even possible with this? For mine, I used my PSN sign-in ID... I thought the only other options were to provide a receipt?

The only thing it asked was if you were aware of the Other OS function, and I was.

 

Even if you didn't know about it, there's no way for them to prove that.
