Seven years later, the legal slog finally reached a settlement in which Sony is paying $3.75 million after being accused of false advertising and breaching warranty, among other offenses. While the pot is being split among lawyers, plaintiffs, and settlement organizers, there's still enough left over for aggrieved PS3 users to claim some form of compensation, which could be as high as $65.
In 2016, the same settlement promised as much as $55 for entitled parties, but the payouts have apparently fattened.
In order to claim eligibility, you need to have bought a "Fat" PS3 between November 1, 2006, and April 1, 2010 at an "authorized retailer," like Best Buy or Walmart -- definitely not through your neighbor on Facebook Marketplace. Through the claim form, you can submit multiple claims if you bought more than one console. You have about a month left to file a claim, as the deadline is April 15.
