“The Sony Entities deny any claims of wrongdoing in this case, and the settlement does not mean that the Sony Entities violated any laws or did anything wrong,” it reads.
Only those who live in the US stand to benefit from the lawsuit, which proposes that Sony offer US$15m worth of digital goods to users as compensation for the outage.
