Own a PlayStation Vita? You may be entitled to lawsuit money

Aren’t lawsuits great?! Thanks to lawsuits, PlayStation Vita who purchased their handheld console any time before June 1, 2012 may be eligible for an award thanks to a class action lawsuit that the FCC filed against Sony over its deceptive claims in the advertisements it put out for the PlayStation Vita. 

If you purchased a PlayStation Vita handheld console before June 1, 2012, you may be eligible for an award from a class action lawsuit over deceptive advertising claims. The Federal Trade Commission filed a lawsuit against Sony last year. In Sony’s advertising campaign for the PS Vita before it launched, the company touted three notable features: remote play, cross-platform gaming / saving and 3G play. The FTC claims that Sony misrepresented how these features would work and how many games supported them. For example, most PlayStation 3 games are not remote playable on the Vita primarily because the PS3 wasn’t designed with that feature in mind. The 3G feature, meanwhile, doesn’t allow users to engage in live, multiplayer gaming over a cellular network (3G gaming is restricted to asynchronous (turn-based) play).
