EA Sports Class Action Lawsuit Has Been Extended
The past few months have been a bit rough for EA, what with the botched Sim City release and general financial struggles. And things aren't about to get any easier since a lawsuit from 2011 has been extended which could cost them a heft chunk of cash.
A few years back, EA was sued for having a monopoly on football video games. They were accused of unfairly charging customers since they had control over the entire market. Once the case was decided, plaintiffs could claim a refund from the software publishing giant. The final date for claims has been extended until May 15th.
If you bought a new copy of any Madden NFL, NCAA Football, or Arena Football game for Xbox, Xbox 360, PS2, PS3, GameCube, PC, or Wii, that was released between January 1, 2005 and June 21, 2012, you could be entitled up to $20.35 per game.
