A lawsuit filed last week alleges that Sony has been concealing a PS5 console defect
The lawsuit was filed by Christina Trejo on 12 July. It claims that Sony is guilty of violating consumer laws by concealing a defect.
The defect reportedly causes the console to crash when playing a game, and Trejo alleges that Sony has been aware of these issue for some time.
Sony has sold over 12 million PS5 console units to date – and Trejo argues that it should have disclosed the alleged defect to these consumers.
“Despite its knowledge of the Console Defect, Defendant failed to, and continues to fail to, disclose the defect to consumers prior to them purchasing the PS5, nor has Defendant taken any substantial action to remedy the problem,” Trejo said.
Trejo is seeking certification of the class action, damages, fees, costs, and a jury trial.
