222w ago - Update: [Register or Login to view links] now reports that Sony has stated they have no intention of reimbursing retailers if they offer fat PS3 users partial refunds because of the removal of the Install OtherOS function, and as a result retailer GAME is already refusing refunds.

According to PlayStationUniversity.com (linked above), a European law grants a partial refund to PS3 consumers due to the recent removal of the OtherOS feature in the PS3 Firmware v3.21 update.

A PS3 owner (60GB) version has managed to gain a partial refund from Amazon (without returning the system) due to the removal of the OtherOS feature.

The EU citizen cited a European law which states a product must be fit for its purpose which was made known to the seller at the time of purchase, and as a result he managed to receive around 80GBP back!

To quote: "The online retailer's policy was to offer a refund weighing in at approximately 20 per cent of the console's original value. Amazon responds:

We are writing to confirm that we have processed your refund in the amount of £84.00 for your Order 666-5327564-4432412.

Rumor: PSP UMD's to Get Partial Memory Stick Game Installs

100°
284w ago - TiltedScreen (linked above) reports that more publishers plan on allowing PSP UMD games to partially install on the memory sick, much in the same way that PS3 games install.

Apparently this new feature is already available with two games, to quote:

A few publishers have gotten together because of the all the large Memory Sticks on the market. They plan on allowing the PSP UMD games to install partial data on to the PSP pro duo mem stick.

The install similar to what a handful PlayStation 3 games offer. Mana Khemia: Student Alliance, Dissidia: Final Fantasy, and if a menu screen is anything to go by Irem's Zettai Zetsumei Toshi 3 (Disaster Report 3) will too.

Games such as Final Fantasy has a data install feature that will let you choose how much space you want to use: 243 MB, 371 MB, or 520 MB. More space means shorter load times in between battles.

Now none of these games are out yet in the US, but 2 games are already scheduled to show up state side. Will this feature help with the PSP piracy issue... or add to it, what do you think?
