Two years ago, Sony has stopped selling download codes for its games at retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy e Walmart. Now the company has received a complaint relating to this very action taken.
Bloomberg reports that the lawsuit filed in a district court in San Francisco argues that restricting the digital purchase of PlayStation games to the company's store only creates an illegal monopoly, as there is no other source from which to purchase digital versions of the securities.
According to the cause, "Sony's monopoly allows them to charge above competitive prices for PlayStation digital games, which are significantly higher than their physical counterparts sold in a competitive retail market, and significantly higher than they would be in a retail market. competitive for digital games. "
Also, according to reports within the lawsuit, people end up paying up to 175% more for digital games than on disc.
