Sony is now sending out emails with voucher codes from the console maker as an approved benefit for the claims sent out by dissatisfied consumers regarding their purchase of the Playstation Vita during its launch period.
Nice, Thank You for this, checked and my Email. It was there, my Vita just got $25 cheaper because of something I never cared about.
Where do I go to ask for a settlement from the PS4? I looked on the Sony site but I cannot find anywhere to fill out the settlement forms?
Deal with it.
You probably didnt get an email cause you dont have one.
You settled on Xbox, so you get nothing from Sony.
I legit bought one on day one and have had the same psn with the same email but never received a an email. I would like to know where I can fill out the forms. Still even have the receipt for the day one purchase.
You go to xbox.com. I'm sure you know how to get there. Just grab a mirror and check the tattoo on your backside.
Lmfao! that troll though.
First you'll have to take out your head from MS' ass...
Xbox one you can't claim something you don't really own. why can't you just enjoy your console of choice without getting down to fanboy tactics
@showtimefolks Who are you to tell I do not own a ps4? I have proven many times I am an unbiased gamer who owns and plays ALL consoles. What you are doing is racism because of my username on the site. I do not care if you keep accusing me of not owning the console, I will not be silenced from PS4 fanboys who keep attacking me based on a username. XoXoXo
It'd be interesting knowing how to become eligible for the $25 code. I have a Vita and like it, but I also would not complain about having a free $25 psn code. I didn't fill out a complaint slip (never knew about it), so I highly doubt theres any chance of me getting a $25 voucher.
I think you had to have bought a Vita at or near launch to be eligible. Even if you did, if you missed the complaint slip then it's too late, it's been settled now.
If you were eligible, sony would have contacted you via email
Don't think I will get one. I waited until the white Vita came out. It just looked so nice.
I would never cash in and take the money, i wasn't sold a bill of goods with Vita, i was simply sold a box goods. This settlement is utter bs, for the ppl taking the cash what did you feel that Sony did wrong? I don't understand. The Vita has more ram than PS3 and the specs are actually quite powerful. Golden Abyss was a launch game that looked better than PS3 launch games. Mercenary is stunning and looks better than some current PS3 shooters.
Wow, really? If your serious, I'm lost for words at the level society has reached. No wonder were in the state were in.
What did Sony do wrong? Let me explain from my own point of view. Sony promised a home console/AAA machine in your pocket. That is not what we got. It has a ton of great indies, but hardly any AAA. From the beginning, Sony went in half-assed. All their first party games, while (mostly) good, were created by B teams. Uncharted could have been made by Naughty Dog, but Sony gave it to Sony Bend instead. Guerrilla could have made Killzone, but Sony gave it to SCE Cambridge instead and changed their name to Guerrilla Cambridge. Resistance could have been made by Insomniac, but Sony gave it to Nihilistic instead. Starting to see the picture? Even though many of Sony's Vita games were good/enjoyable, that doesn't change the fact that from the beginning Sony never went in with their top talent like they should have. They never gave the system a real chance to shine. That, plus the high price of the system, plus the absurd memory card prices with no built-in memory, all held the Vita down like handcuffs right from the start. Sony handled many things wrong with the Vita. It's a good system, but it needed a better parent. Sony did everything right with the PS4, from the marketing, to the price, to the games, etc. Had they done that with the Vita, it likely would have been a success and more people would be satisfied with the system. As it stands now, the Vita is a great handheld with a library almost entirely made up of indie games that I can also play on my phone, tablet, 3DS, PC, or my PS4. I have no real reason to have it.
@ 1insomniac Yes, i'm entirely serious my friend, are you? If YOU'RE serious then no wonder we're in the state we're in. More lawsuits, more entitlement right. @ porkchop You are just reiterating redundant rhetoric my friend, the facts paint an entirely different picture. Sony did not half azz the Vita early on as you claim, Sony did deliver a multitude of AAA Vita/PS exclusives early and even later on. AAA Vita Exclusives early on: Uncharted Golden Abyss - AAA Exclusive LittleBigPlanet Vita- AAA Exclusive AC3 Liberation - AAA 3rd party Exclusive Gravity Rush - AAA-ish Exclusive MLB The Show - yearly AAA PS Exclusive Unit 13 - AAA-ish Exclusive Resistance Burning Skies - AAA Exclusive, i loved it. Soul Sacrifice - AAA Exclusive Toukidan - AAA Exclusive AAA Exclusives that came a bit later Tearaway - AAA Exclusive Killzone Mercenary - AAA Exclusive Soul Sacrifice Delta - AAA Exclusive Toukidan Kiwami - AAA PS Exclusive Freedom Wars - AAA Exclusive Oreshika - AAA-ish Exclusive This is off the top of my head btw. You do realize that typically the top 1st party studios don't make handheld games right? Even the amazing God of War PSP games weren't made by GoW developer SSM. Having said that, many Vita games were made by top 1st party Studios like Sony Bend, Japan Studios, San Diego Studios, Guerrilla Cambridge, & Media Molecule. Mm created Tearaway themselves, Japan Studios created Gravity Rush, Soul Sac, & Freedom Wars. Sony Bend is no slouch they are developing a AAA PS4 exclusive atm. The Vita is loaded w/great games i haven't even mentioned like: Persona 4 Golden Helldivers Virtua Tennis 4, NFS Most Wanted, Modnation Guacamelee, Borderlands 2, Injustice Ultimate, MK OlliOlli 1 & 2 Hotline Miami 1 & 2 Axiom Verge - on the way Deadnation, Resogun Sly TiT, Sly Collection, God of War Collection, Ratchet Collection Shovel Knight, Rayman Origins & Legends FF X/X2, Steins Gate, Virtues Last Reward Can you really play Golden Abyss, Persona 4 Golden, Tearaway, KZ Mercenary ect on your phone and 3ds?
Got mine which I applied to The Nathan Drake Collection
Nothing in my inbox so far. EDIT: NVM I was opening wrong email account. I have like too many email accounts. Now I am going to buy Everyone's Gone to the Rapture with it.
Is it okay to admit the Vita was a failure yet?
Could you bring positivity into the comments section for once?
Why the hate? Can't you just be happy in you fanbase and not bash others? We've got more games in the vita than what we could ask for. DOA extreme 3, 2 digimon games, attack on titan by tecmo, senran kagura estival, JRPGS and more etc. Etc.
I actually would like some Vita specific games for my Vita. Sony never really supported the Vita which is a shame since it is the best handheld gaming hardware on the market.
Well mines been catching dust so yes. And a 25$ voucher isnt enough to make up for it
how can the vita be a failure when it is still selling ?
I say the same thing about titanfall when thousands are still playing.
Got mine, 25$ credit. Thanks Sony!
can you tell me what you complained about to get the $25 ?
I think it was just false advertising class action lawsuit , which never really bothered me but since i was an early adopter i was able to signup for the Class Action.
Got my credit too.time to cancel my gamestop preorder of MGS5 and go digital pre-load.
Wahoooo! Sad thing is that the flash sale ended. Could have bought like 4 games with this.
So you only get the credit if you filed a claim somehow?
Sweet I'll use this to buy a Ps4 game haha
I have received my voucher code but I'd rather have the PS Vita get the high quality games and support that the PSP bestowed upon us.
Got 8 games. Quite satisfied.
The Vita has good games the only problem there not making any more unless you like Indie titles. I want God of War on Vita now or how about GT. heck even a good sports game would be nice. $25 for nothing isn't bad though.
God of War Collection released last year on Vita. NFS Most Wanted is very good on Vita as well as a plethora of other racers from WRC to MotoGP to Modnation to Wipeout ect. Madden wasn't bad on Vita, Fifa releases every year on Vita. Every year MLB The Show is on Vita and it's excellent. Ok, i got a fantastic sports game for you on Vita if you aren't interested in baseball, football, or Soccer. Virtua Tennis 4 is outstanding on Vita, it looks gorgeous and plays even better. Buy it. Plenty of big games on the way.
The first comments in here by obvious ps4 fanboh trolls with many bubbles just proves n4g is fixed!and being funded by Sony. If I get a notification and they don't, or many disagrees just proves it further. Sony trolls are severe around these parts of the net.
I wonder if Nintendo will do the same for the wiiu?...
got mine woo close one it was in the spam folder !!!
Hi there, I was wondering if you could help me. I also submitted a claim but didn't receive an e-mail. What was the e-mail address that sent you the voucher? Much appreciated man!
