PS3 owners could get money back

For those who can’t be too bothered about running another operating system on their PS3, how about taking the opportunity to make some money? It seems that someone at the NeoGAF forums decided to slug it out with Amazon, quoting a European consumer protection law which states all products bought must be “fit for the purpose which the consumer requires them and which was made known to the seller at the time of purchase,” resulting in a £84 refund. Best of all is, he didn’t even need to return his PS3 and neither does his console have to be under the warranty period. Bear in mind that this law applies to those living in Europe only at the moment – perhaps legal eagles could help us out as to whether this is similar Stateside as well? Of course, you should only take up your case if you do not have any unofficial hack installed.
