Ok, first post here but I felt so strongly about this topic that I thought I would inform you all.
Apparently Amazon are refunding people who originally bought a PS3 Fat for the removal of the "Other OS" feature. They are having to do this under EU law which states
"comply with the description given by the seller and posses the same qualities and characteristics as other similar goods AND be fit for the purpose which the consumer requires them and which was made known to the seller at the time of purchase."
which Sony are now violating.
So, if you bought an original PS3 from Amazon you may be able to get some money back regardless of whether or not you use the "Other OS" feature.
