Khoroshevsky District Court of Moscow registered a class action lawsuit against Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe Limited from 28 plaintiffs. This was reported by the newspaper “Vedomosti”.
The Russians are demanding that they be given back the opportunity to buy games in the PlayStation Store. They also demand to compensate them for “moral damages” of 280 million rubles (about 130.5 million hryvnias).
Thus, the disconnection of Russians from the services allegedly violates the rules of Sony and Russian legislation on consumer protection.
“Moral damage” of 10 million rubles per plaintiff is explained by the price of the game console – from 119,000 rubles, as stated in the statement.
Sony Music Group, the second-largest record company, has announced its closure in Russia. Employees will continue to be paid.
The operation of the Google Play service in the territory of the aggressor state will be limited to the ability to download only free applications.
