PlayStation Vita Class Action Settlement Offers You Cash, Credit, or Free Games

By   /   Apr 5, 2015

Last year the FTC brought a suit against Sony which claimed that the company had falsely advertised the remote play, cross platform, and cross save features of the PlayStation Vita during the handheld’s launch in North America back in 2011.

The case went in favor of the FTC and a settlement was decided for Vita owners. As of now, those who bought a PlayStation Vita before June 2012 are eligible to collect cash, games, or $25 in PlayStation Store credit.

Sony has already sent out emails to all potential players, who are asked to head over to Before claiming any reward, you are required to fill out an online form by June 29. Following that the serial number found on the Vita has to be entered, which verifies when it was purchased originally.

From there, you’ll be asked to select your compensation: a $25 check, $25 in credit on the PlayStation Store, or one of three bundles of games for the PlayStation 3 and Vita.

  • The action adventure bundle comprises God of War Collection, Beyond: Two Souls, Twisted Metal (all PS3) and Unit 13 (for Vita), with a “regular retail price” of $92.95.
  • The “family friendly” bundle packages LittleBigPlanet 2 and Puppeteer on PS3 with Uncharted: Golden Abyss and ModNation Racers: Road Trip on the Vita. Retail price $100.46.
  • A variety pack combines God of War Collection and LittleBigPlanet 2 on PS3 with ModNation Racers: Road Trip and Unit 13 on Vita. MSRP: $66.46.

There’s no mention of any date or time frame for when the rewards will be delivered.
