(Meredith) -- The original PlayStation 3 came out in 2006. If you bought one, you can claim a $65 refund from Sony.

It's due to a class action lawsuit involving a security update. The original PlayStation 3 had the option for an alternate operating system, but the slim version of the console released later removed that feature as part of a security update. This resulted in a class action lawsuit which was settled in 2016. It allows owners of the original PlayStation 3 to claim a $65 payout by submitting a claim form.

You can submit a claim form here.

To be eligible, you must have purchased the console from an "authorized retailer, provide your PlayStation username and the serial number of your system. The deadline for submitting a claim is April 15, so act fast!
