After 10 years, a class action lawsuit has been settled with Sony. If you owned an original PlayStation 3, you are eligible for a $65 refund due to some kind of security update. 

The original PlayStation 3 came with the option of an alternate operating system to be run. After that, the slim version of the PlayStation 3 arrived without that feature as part of a security update. Because of this, a class action lawsuit was started in 2006. To be honest, I have no idea why this was a big deal. In reading the form and requirements for the refund, it has something to do with the functionality. I've always been an Xbox and Nintendo guy so I don't have a clue about that.

However, if you were somehow affected by this, or even owned a fat PlayStation 3, you could be into some extra drinking money. Grab the serial number from the console and follow this link to cash in.
