In the suit, Ventura claims the Other OS function is "extremely valuable," adding that while players aren't forced to download the new update, those who don't are left unable to access the PSN, or enjoy any games or Blu-ray movies which require the new firmware. The filing mentions no specific amount of damages sought, but "the amount in controversy is in excess of $US5 million."
Ventura's lawsuit is a long shot, and if it does bear fruit, it likely won't do so for a long, long time. Those in search of a more expedient payday: have you considered moving to Europe, and then asking really nicely for some compensation?
