Linux removal gets Sony sued again
Sony is now subject of three class action lawsuits over their removal of the 'Install Other OS' option from the PS3.
The lawsuits all claim damages as a result of the removal of the feature in firmware 3.21.
Of the latest two suits the first one claims that Sony failed to inform customers that they reserved the right to change the advertised features of the PS3.
The second claims that customers lost money in purchasing a PS3 when the feature was removed because it became a product that was not what it claimed to be.
Sony has not commented on the litigation but if the suits are found favour of the plaintiffs things could become quite awkward for Sony.
