Earlier in the week, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) unanimously agreed upon final orders to have Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) and its former marketing partner Deutsch LA make amends for misleading PlayStation Vita advertisements.

Last November, SCEA settled FTC charges revolving around some false advertising claims revolving around the PS Vita’s ability to utilize its Remote Play function with a PS3. Sony agreed to give early buyers of the PS Vita either a $25 refund or $50 which can be used only to purchase SCEA games and services.

Hopefully, the results of the settlement will have Sony be more clear with their advertising in the future. Were you affected by the PS Vita’s false advertisements at all?
