PlayStation owners in the UK could be set to receive a bonus from the Japanese makers of the global game console, the PlayStation 5.

A lawsuit has been filed against the manufacturer who have been accused to have ‘ripped people off’ in the last six years.

Alex Neill has brought the lawsuit forward and has accused the company of overcharging customers in the last six years.

A 30% commission on was charged on every single purchase on PlayStation consoles which effectively overcharged gamers by an estimated £5 billion.

Neill has also claimed that gaming is the biggest entertainment industry in the UK, ahead of TV, video and music, showing us just how big this case will be.

This request is only possible because the opt-out class action regime has been introduced by the Consumer Rights Act of 2015; a mode that Alex fought to introduce.

We look forward to working with Alex and ensuring that this regime achieves its goals of consumer protection and compensation.

The good news is, if you’ve been affected and are entitled to money back, you won’t have to pay any legal fees for the case as it has already been funded by Woodsford.
