PlayStation Class Action Lawsuit

Sony PlayStation Class Action Lawsuit – Do They Have A Chance?

The PlayStation class action lawsuit was recently filed against Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) and the manufacturers of two Sony PlayStation consoles, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. Those involved in this lawsuit have alleged that they conspired to sell the PlayStation consoles “unlockable” versions which contain malware, spyware and adware. When this is done, the users cannot access their data on the console.

Users are not given any option to turn these off.

Thus, these users find themselves at a disadvantage when it comes to playing games and doing other activities on the console. This is why the lawsuit claims that the companies engaged in an agreement with others to deliberately sell these illegal versions of the console, so as to entice more users and eventually earn money from it.

Users can easily detect the uninstalled files on the system by looking for the missing files or missing settings on their consoles.

Once a user installs an application or game, he automatically loads it on his console and starts playing it. However, if he accidentally gets the malicious application installed on his console, his system may become infected and he could lose all his data. So, the company has been accused of making these illegal versions available to the users.

This is where a law firm called Blaupunkt LLC came into the picture.

They claim that there was a conspiracy between the gaming console manufacturer and other companies that would sell “unlockable” versions of the console to the users. The firm is seeking compensation from the companies involved in this scheme.

According to the firm, the defendants should have known about the potential risks posed by the software, which they did not heed at all.

The firm is asking for $150 million in compensation for the inconvenience and damage caused to the user, since he was unable to use his console properly after the installation process. It is also demanding damages for the loss of data and games. The firms should have offered information on how to stop these infections to the users and should have warned them on the possible harmful consequences of installing the software.

Blaupunkt claims that Sony Computer Entertainment America was aware that there are many users who are already having a problem with installing and using the software and still failed to warn them.

It says that they should have known that there are numerous users who are still running this software and not even realizing the damage that it causes. and what they are causing to their systems.

Blaupunkt claims that this has caused the firm and other users a lot of damage.

After this, the company has been flooded with requests for help. It is requesting the court to order Sony to remove the “unlockable” version of the console from the users and to remove any information about the software from its servers.

Blaupunkt is also asking the court to order Sony to pay for the costs and expenses it incurred for tracking down and contacting the users and the people behind the software.

It also wants the defendants to provide users with details on their website, so that other users can learn about what is being offered to them and on how to avoid falling prey to this scam. Sony has denied the accusations, but it cannot say for sure that this lawsuit will be successful, since it is going up against a giant such as Sony Corporation.

It would be a pity if this case is unsuccessful because it may be an opportunity for gamers to get a refund or repair their PlayStation systems.

Many users have found ways to solve their problem by downloading anti-virus software, changing the hard drive of their computers and updating their operating system. Even those who have bought an original PlayStation system have also had issues with the installation process and are looking for the solution.

This class action lawsuit is not likely to succeed because the plaintiffs are claiming that they are the victims of fraud.

but it is not the fault of the defendants either. because they could not foresee the possibility of a user installing the software and failed to warn him or her about the consequences. In fact, Sony is trying to make a profit from people’s misery, and it seems like they are taking advantage of the situation and want to profit from people’s misfortune.

Blaupunkt says it is unfortunate that Sony is attempting to capitalize on the misfortune of others. He says that this is the worst kind of situation to be in.
