- While everyone awaits a verdict on the injunction in the recent PS JailBreak lawsuit
hearing, another Australian PS3 gamer has lost his OtherOS lawsuit to Sony recently.
According to GamePron.com (linked above) Michael Trebilcock
had asked for AU $800 in compensation (the cost to rent a laptop for each day he was unable to use Linux on his PS3, plus fees), with a claim that the updated console could no longer be used as a computer.
To quote: "Unfortunately for Trebilcock, the Magistrates court heard that the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission cleared Sony of any wrongdoing regarding the upgrade, and the claim was dismissed.
Mr. Trebilcock was not made to pay Sony's legal costs."
