PS3 Owner Refunded For Missing “Other OS”

Toxicgonzo writes “Amazon has given a European PS3 owner a 20% refund for removal of the PS3′s OtherOS feature. (We recently discussed hacker Geohot’s efforts to restore this feature.) The owner cited European law Directive 1999/44/EC — which states that goods must (1) comply with the description given by the seller and possess the same qualities and characteristics as other similar goods, and (2) be fit for the purpose which the consumer requires them and which was made known to the seller at the time of purchase. How many other European PS3 owners will follow suit? If Amazon forwards the bill to Sony, how will Sony respond?”
