Although not necessarily related to hacking, this news article caught me eye. For those who aren't aware, the Federal Trade Commision (FTC) filed civil charges against Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) on behalf of the public for falsely advertising "game changing" technological features. Specifically, the FTC alleged that SCEA advertised false claims about the Vita's "cross platform gaming" ability, the Vita's "cross-save" feature and the Vita's "remote play" capabilities. As most Vita owners likely know, none of these features lived up to Sony's advertisements.[break][/break] In fact, without CFW, the number of PS3 titles that have been available for remote play is laughable. You can find a link to the FTC's Civil Complaint HERE.

According to the FTC's press release from this morning, it appears SCEA and the FTC have reached a settlement agreement. The terms of the settlement agreement are as follows:

  • SCEA is barred from making similarly misleading advertising claims in the future.
  • SCEA will provide customers who bought a PS Vita before June 1, 2014 either $25 cash or credit refund, or a $50 merchandise voucher for select video games, and/or services.

Apparently Sony will provide notice via email to the consumers who are eligible for redress once the settlement between SCEA and the FTC is finalized. Upon reading this news I tried to remember when I purchased my Vita I found my Vita receipt and I purchased it in February of 2012. I went onto Sony's website and registered my Vita in hopes I receive and email with a $50 psn card or something. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how Sony is going to determine who purchased Vita's prior to June 1, 2014 and it will probably take quite some time. But, I'll update you all as soon as I know anything else.

PS VITA / PS TV PS Vita Bubble Hack Update
Katsu is at it again but this time revealing some minor information regarding the bubble hacks we have been seeing on Twitter. This method is deemed useless at the moment and has gotten a few developers hot under the collar since any hints regarding the bubble hack could get Sony onto a early patching spree. The instructions you will find below will get you, with the use of a PS3 and PS Vita exploit, installing you very own bubble on the PS Vita. [break].[/break]However at the moment the bubble will only serve as some visual stimulation since it does nothing more but Katsu does mention homebrew is inbound. Check it out.
