Playstation Class Action Lawsuit
You might be owed some money if you have an original PS3.

If you owned an original Playstation 3, you're running out of time to get cash back.

According to PCMag, the original PS3 console released in 2006 gave users the ability to install an alternative operating system along with the PS3 software.

But when the "slim model" was released, the alternative operating system feature was removed due to security concerns.

That change resulted in a class-action lawsuit. A settlement was reached in 2016, which allows PS3 owners to claim $65.

If you haven't filed your claim, though, you only have days left to do it.

Anyone who owns the original PS3 has until April 15 to file a claim.

Here are the requirements:

-You must have purchased your PS3 from an "authorized retailer."

- Include your PSN username and PS3 serial number.

- The offer is only good for 20GB, 40GB, 60GB and 80GB models.
