Neil argues that Sony abused its dominant position by imposing unfavorable and particularly onerous terms on developers. These conditions, Neil explains, would have caused an artificial price increase, which obviously had an impact on the consumer’s wallet.

“We believe our class action has a very solid foundation or we would not have filed it,” attorney Alex Neil told the BBC. “We don’t take it lightly to sue a company like Sony.” “With this class action I represent millions of British residents who have paid far more than they owed for years,” he added.

A tax that would drive up prices and harm developers and gamers alike.
