Article: Sony PS3 Class Action Update –
What is the claim in this lawsuit? Getting OtherOS back? Money? (if so, how much?).
We're requesting damages and injunctive relief based around the removal of Other OS.

Hehe, not for me I never used OtherOS, so i wasnt affected by the removal. But i'm sure that there are several who will jump in to get something for free. But i'm mostly just curious about how much money that it is asked for in this lawsuit. Is the request about $10? $50? $100? Or more?

The way it is now, they wouldn't be legally required to fix it. Instead they would push the PS4's better playing capability, then remove backwards compatibility a year later to push PS3 sales. That's what is at stake.
Everything Mr. Quadra said here makes complete sense. The problem is $ony's high salary lawyers will be able to find a loophole somewhere. Lawsuits have turned into who has the higher prices lawyers.
I cant really imagine that a laywer works for "charity" like this, or that some random guy would pay thousands of dollars to a laywer and get nothing in return. I'm pretty sure that it is about money, but i'm curious about how much we're exactly talking about. There are tons of money to be made here for the laywer if he/she wins because we're talking about perhaps 20 million PS3s. The end user will get breadcrumbs in comparison to what the laywer can get.

This is stupid SONY loses, the consumers lose... everybody loses, except the lawyers...
this is one the stupidest demands, sony removed the otheros the consumers just have to accept it
