Judge Dismisses PlayStation 3 ‘Other OS’ Removal Class Action Suit

Judge Dismisses PlayStation 3 ‘Other OS’ Removal Class Action Suit

A federal judge has dismissed all of the counts brought against Sony in a class action suit over the disabling of PlayStation 3’s “Other OS” feature last year.
 
The feature was primarily used to install versions of the open source Linux operating system on the console, allowing home users to tap into the PlayStation 3 for homemade applications.
 
In April 2010, Sony released a PS3 firmware upgrade removing the console’s Other OS functions as a response to hacker exploits enabling users to run unauthorized software and pirated games by using the feature.
 
California resident Anthony Ventura filed a class action suit against Sony Computer Entertainment America several weeks later over what he said was an “intentional disablement of the valuable functionalities originally advertised as available” alongside other critical features with the PS3.
 
The filing read: “The disablement is not only a breach of the sales contract between Sony and its customers and a breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, but it is also an unfair and deceptive business practice perpetrated on millions of unsuspecting consumers.”
 
Ventura’s class action included eight different claims, alleging breach of express warranty, breach of implied warranty, violation of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, unjust enrichment, violation of the Unfair Competition Law, conversion, and violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.
