Sony is being sued for millions of dollars for allegedly selling overpriced PlayStation games.
The claimants contend that Sony charged a 30% fee on all digital games and in-game purchases made through the PlayStation Store.
According to a report in Sky News, nine million claimants have filed a lawsuit against Sony Interactive Entertainment, accusing the corporation of "overpricing" PlayStation games. According to the site, Sony fans have accused the company of "ripping people off" using its online store's games and in-game purchases. Alex Neill, an advocate of human rights, put out the effort that led to the collective action. According to the lawsuit, consumers may have been overcharged by as much as 5 billion pounds (about Rs 4,71,25,85,06,250) over the course of the previous six years, according to Sky News.
Since August 19, 2016, the complainants have taken into consideration every game or add-on content purchase made in the UK on their console or through the PlayStation Store. According to the outlet, each of these users may be entitled to compensation.
Without interest, the projected harm per class member ranges from 67 pounds (Rs 6,317) to 562 pounds (Rs 52,988).
The claimants contend that the video game industry behemoth levied a 30% fee on each digital game or in-game transaction made via the PlayStation Store.
Sony hasn't addressed the accusations as of now.
"The Sony PlayStation game is available. I'm defending the millions of UK citizens who have been unknowingly overcharged through this legal action. We think Sony has taken advantage of its position and exploited its customers "Sky News was informed by Ms.
In particular, she said, "Sony's actions are hurting millions of people who can't afford it at a time when the consumer purse is being squeezed like never before due to the cost of living crisis."
