Claimants can now go to vitaclaims.com and fill out a PDF form including their personal information and the serial number of their Vita system (or an original purchase receipt). Eligible owners who print and mail back the form will be able to choose from one of the following:
A check for $25
A $25 credit to their PSN account
Any one of the following three packages of downloadable games:
Action/Adventure pack: God of War Collection (PS3), Beyond Two Souls (PS3), Twisted Metal (PS3), Unit 13 (Vita)
Family Friendly pack: Little Big Planet 2 (PS3), Puppeteer (PS3), Uncharted: Golden Abyss (Vita), ModNation Racers (Vita)
Variety pack: God of War Collection (PS3), Little Big Planet 2 (PS3), ModNation Racers (Vita), Unit 13 (Vita)
The settlement resolves complaints the FTC brought against Sony for advertisements that oversold the Vita's "Remote Play" feature with the PS3 and which falsely suggested that live online multiplayer was available on the portable over a 3G connection. Customers who registered an early Vita with Sony through PSN should be receiving e-mails about the settlement shortly if they haven't already.
