PS2 Class Action Lawsuit
i did a search for this and couldnt find anything
What is this lawsuit about? (top)
Lawsuits were filed regarding the PlayStationÂ®2 computer entertainment system models 30001, 30001R, 35001, 39001, 39010, 50001, and 50010 (?PS2?). The plaintiffs in those cases claim that certain inappropriate ?Disc Read Error? messages are displayed. They also claim that some PS2s fail to play and that some of them cause damage to CDs or DVDs during playback. The companies that were sued, including Sony Computer Entertainment of America Inc. (?SCEA?), say they did not do anything wrong and there is nothing wrong with the PS2.
An e-mail has been sent out regarding a class-action settlement resulting from PS2 dirty-disc errors. A web site has also been set up to explain the issue and outline who’s eligible for potential benefits.
While still subject to court approval, those who qualify may receive a check for $25 U.S. (or $31 Canadian), a PS2 game from a specified list, or a free or reduced-cost repair or replacement of a PS2 experiencing the alleged problems.
We hope you kept your receipts, card statements, or cancelled checks, as proof of (or info on) when you contacted SCEA or the Plaintiffs’ Attorneys for repair info may also be necessary to claim certain benefits.
thats stupid who the hell keeps the receit for 13 months...the warranty was only for 3 wasnt it
PLUS, you aren't eligible for any kind of settlement if:
1. You ever used a Gameshark with your PS2
2. You ever opened or modified your console
That's about what, 90%+ of us here?
who could prove you used a gameshark tho?
opening it up on the other hand...
