Sony Sued Over Other OS Removal

Stoobalou (1774024) writes "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"."

Well done! I hope this user wins his case and sets a precedent that prevents manufacturers from pulling a similar stunt in future.
