PlayStation Vita owners eligible in the class action lawsuit brought against Sony for deceptive advertising of its handheld have received instructions on how to collect cash, PlayStation Store credit, or free games.
Polygon reports anyone that purchased a PS Vita in the US prior to June 2012 qualifies for a piece of the settlement. Emails were sent out last night to potentially eligible members, with lawyers for the suit steering individuals to vitaclaims.com.
To collect any compensation, claimants must complete the online form by June 29th, as well as enter the serial number on their Vita to verify when it was purchased.
Compensation will then be offered in the form of a $25 check, $25 in credit on the PlayStation Store, or one of these three bundles of games for PS3 and Vita:
- The action adventure bundle ($92.95): God of War Collection, Beyond: Two Souls, Twisted Metal for PS3 and Unit 13 for Vita.
- The "family friendly" bundle ($100.46): LittleBigPlanet 2 and Puppeteer on PS3 with Uncharted: Golden Abyss and ModNation Racers: Road Trip on the Vita.
- The variety pack ($66.46): God of War Collection and LittleBigPlanet 2 on PS3 with ModNation Racers: Road Trip and Unit 13 on Vita.
The form doesn't mention when these awards are to be sent out, but similar suits in the past have taken up to six months to arrive.
