Sony’s lawyers have filled a motion to have the case of the “Other OS” to be dismissed. Sony removed the option of installing another OS a few months back and was hit with a lawsuit saying that Sony removed options that were advertised as an option pulling a sort of bait and switch.
Sony is saying that the written express warranty dictates that the system software license agreement allows them to alter, update or remove software options as the consumer is licensed these options, you do not own them.
Sony’s motion also went on to say that the plaintiff has failed to supply any mass media advertising campaigns or statements by SCEA. Sony’s states “Instead, it includes a mix of quotes drawn from obscure articles and unrelated third party publications, and a smattering out of context and incomplete references to a few pages of SCEA’s website and user manual.”
Sony went on to list other reasons to strike this lawsuit down, one being that one of the plaintiff’s never event installed or used the other OS feature at any time.
I’d say there is a very good chance of this lawsuit getting tossed out. However you can read the full story on IGN’s site along with the PDF of Sony’s reason to strike and dismiss the case.
