I do wonder what happened to the people who picked the game option. Maybe they just got a check too? Some people on Reddit are getting two or three checks. Maybe they split our $65 up into 7 checks.

Link to relevant the please?

what do you mean "all that"? i just had to give them my psn username. granted i thought we would get more money but it only took a minute or so of my time and i was eligible.

The whole morality of just getting about $10, whether or not if you actually qualify for the class action lawsuit.  The act of crossing the line of lying on a legal document, being compared to unenforceable laws.  In my opinion, $10 is not worth that kind of effort/act.

The idea that anybody claiming $10 is somehow ruining this world is what's silly. Take the wool off of your eyes and figure out who your real enemies are...because they're swindling more than the entirety of this settlement on a regular basis.

Got my check today, thanks for the $10.07 Sony. That will go nicely with my $10 gift card from Target to cover one of my BF purchase.

so even though i qualify, my participation is immoral. i bought a 20gb model during launch and had an active psn id. filing a claim took me less than 90 seconds.

He’s probably not a native English speaker or he’s got things badly muddled things up.

The class was people that either intended to install an alt operating system in their PS3, knew about the feature, or perceive it as a loss of value in the system when that feature was removed. Since it inarguably WAS a loss of value (even if you don’t care about Linux, enough people do that removing that feature objectively makes your machine less valuable) the class includes everyone that a) bought a PS3 during the specified timeframe and b) is capable of basic rational thought.

The only way anyone is committing fraud is if they never bought the machine they’re making a claim on at all (current ownership isn’t required).

I came here for the deal.  I stayed for the semantics.  Just take the dang $10, don't argue/justify/brag.

Received my check the other day. I believe it took less than a minute to complete the online form.

Got 10 bucks. These class actions are always bs. Glad Sony had to pay out at least.

As long as you knew about the feature, you qualified. Everyone knew about it. People whining about this are likely just mad they couldn't participate.

I like how as a final f-u, Sony sent the check in a format that my mobile deposit app won’t read. Thanks for making me go to the bank for $10.

I feel your pain; pretty sure mine was sent to my previous address, which means it will eventually be forwarded here but I've had bad experience with checks like those. Mobile app won't read it and my bank only has ATM's here, which means to deposit I'll have to mail it, so there goes $.71 from it. FML.

All we really did was help some asshole lawyers (department of redundancy department) get a decent windfall.
