Sony to compensate PlayStation Vita owners after bad ad

Sony is set to reimburse customers who bought its PlayStation Vita after complaints that a TV advert for the handheld console made false claims.

In addition to overstating the device's ability to link up to the PlayStation 3, staff at the firm's ad agency are also accused of using their personal Twitter accounts to mislead the public.

To qualify for the pay-out, users must live in the US and have bought a Vita before 1 June 2012.

This is the advert that is the subject of the complaint.
