If you remember the first promises made by Sony on their new handheld, the PlayStation Vita, the device would be able to remote play with the PlayStation 3, when later that turned out to not be the case for most of the PlayStation 3 titles. Sony has now settled with the Federal Trade Commission on this case. And with this settlement, costumers who purchased a PlayStation Vita will be entitled to a $25 refund or $50 dollar voucher (most likely to be redeemed for PlayStation Network digital titles).
However, that wasn’t the only problem as the hole goes deeper for Sony. The FTC also put Sony on the spot about ads made that stated players with the 3G model would be able to play online multiplayer games, when that just wasn’t the case.
Sony’s ad company, Deutsch LA, has also settled with the FTC. It was stated that staff in the company were instructed to post on Twitter about these features without saying they were working with Sony.
If you do not own a PlayStation Vita yet, does this news make you question purchasing Sony’s handheld?
