PlayStation 3

Huber v. SCEA, LLC
CV 10 2213
June 2010

Hausfeld LLP has filed a nationwide class action in the Northern District of California on behalf of PlayStation 3 (PS3) purchasers. One of the key distinguishing features of the PS3 that Sony advertised and promoted was the PS3's "other operating system" function, which allowed users to install Linux and use the PS3 as a computer. Sony unilaterally decided to cancel this important PS3 feature through its latest firmware updates leaving millions of purchasers without the ability to access the PS3 computer mode. We have brought claims for false advertising and breach of warranty among others. 

If you are a PS3 owner impacted by this firmware update, please contact James Pizzirusso.
