11:49 EDTSNEFTC approves orders settling charges of false advertising by Sony for PS Vita
The FTC has approved two final orders settling charges that Sony Computer Entertainment America and its advertising agency at the time falsely advertised certain capabilities of the company’s PlayStation Vita handheld gaming console. According to the complaints, announced jointly in November 2014, Sony deceived consumers with false advertising claims about several “game changing” technological features of the PS Vita in late 2011 and early 2012. The Commission alleged that Deutsch LA, Sony’s advertising agency for the PS Vita launch, knew or should have known that the advertisements it produced contained misleading claims about the console’s capabilities. The FTC also alleged that Deutsch LA misled consumers by urging its employees to create awareness and excitement about the PS Vita on Twitter, without instructing them to disclose their connection to the advertising agency or its then-client Sony. Under the order, Sony will provide consumers who bought a PS Vita gaming console before June 1, 2012, either a $25 cash or credit refund, or a $50 merchandise voucher for select video games, and/or services. The FTC’s order with Deutsch LA bars it from making similar misrepresentations as Sony, and bars misrepresentations that an endorser of any game console product or video game product is an independent user or ordinary consumer of the product. It also requires the agency to disclose a material connection, where one exists, between any endorser of a game console product or video game product and Deutsch LA or other entity involved in the manufacture or marketing of the product.
