A collective legal claim has been brought in the Competition Appeal Tribunal against Sony PlayStation seeking up to £5 billion in damages for consumers in the UK.
The claim alleges that Sony breached competition law by unlawfully overcharging PlayStation customers and abused its market dominant position to impose unfair terms and conditions on PlayStation game developers and publishers. This resulted in excessive and unfair prices for consumers every time they bought digital games or in-game content from the PlayStation Store.
Anyone in the UK who has purchased digital games or add-on content on their console or via the PlayStation Store since 19 August 2016 is included in the claim and is potentially entitled to compensation. It is estimated that damages per individual member of the class is between £67 and £562 excluding interest.
