PlayStation Other OS Class Action Lawsuit Dismissed

Posted on Tuesday, December 13 @ 10:15:27 Eastern by Keri_Honea

You may remember that Sony filed a Motion to Dismiss over a year ago--September 10, 2010--for the class action lawsuit filed against the company for removing the possibility of installing a different operating system. Or maybe you don't; it has been over a year. Fact remains that they did, and in speeds so slow only a courthouse can achieve them, Sony's motion was granted.

According to Gamasutra, all of the claims were dismissed back in February 2011 except for one. The plaintiffs consequently amended all of their claims, but Federal Judge Richard Seeborg dismissed all of these amended claims. In the Judge's statement, he effectively slammed the door shut on future amended claims:

In light of the prior amendment, and the fundamental shortcomings in plaintiffs' basic theory that it was wrongful for Sony to release the software update in dispute, leave to amend will be denied.
Seeborg explained his reasons for dimissing the case with the following: "The flaw in plaintiffs' [argument] is that they are claiming rights not only with respect to the features of the PS3 product, but also to have ongoing access to an internet service offered by Sony, the PSN."

And thus ends all class actions for the PlayStation, since a PSN update this past September included terms of service that remove rights to file a class action lawsuit, much like the Xbox 360's new Terms of Service that rolled out with the Dashboard update earlier this month.
