After six years of litigation, Sony has reportedly agreed to pay PlayStation 3 owners millions for a firmware update in 2010 that removed support for the Linux Operating system in the console. According to a report by Ars Technica, the court case between Sony and lawyers representing up to 10 million owners of its console ended on Friday. As per terms, gamers are eligible to get $55 (approx. Rs. 3,700) if they used Linux on the console. Further, any console owner who bought a PS3 based on Sony’s claims about the “Other OS” functionality will get $9 (approx. Rs. 600). The deal will also reportedly provide up to $2.25 million in attorneys’ fees for the lawyers.
