Why did people downvote this? "Spam"? Seriously... Wait, someone said "Not a good price"...?
Does this not work? I was one of those who lost a good chunk of hard drive space to Other OS partition, and I actually used Other OS as functional computer with YDL, it was actually pretty cool to have it, until Sony decided to simply turn that partition into ghost...

I still play on my PS3, but this $55 could go towards a PS4 when it goes even cheaper after PS4 Pro is released.

Proof of Purchase ? Not too many people would have a receipt for something that was purchased 6 years back.

I don't see it's asking for that, Sony should have the record by Serial #.

Read the faqs, you need it. Probably need to postmark it or something.

Yes looks like it, but at least they will accept credit card statement, which should be OK since we can go back 10 yrs with e-statements. Let's see if we can dig it out.
But it says it will accept the Network ID.

As for proof that we used Other OS, can we show them the hard drive space on our PS3? I wonder.

A sales receipt, credit card statement or other documentation that shows the place and date of purchase;
OR
the serial number of the Fat PS3 you purchased (found on the back of the console) and the PlayStation Network Sign-In ID that you used with your Fat PS3 console between November 1, 2006 and April 1, 2010.

I didnt use OtherOS, so I guess 9$ doesn't really make it worth it.

It's slightly more complicated than that:

B. Proof that You Used The Other OS Functionality.
The following are acceptable forms of proof of use:
proof that you purchased a version of Linux that was compatible with and was installed on your Fat PS3 before April 1, 2010;
proof that you downloaded a version of Linux that was compatible with and was installed on your Fat PS3 before April 1, 2010;
a screenshot (or picture) showing Linux operating on your Fat PS3;
a screenshot (or picture) showing that a portion of your PS3 hard drive is still formatted for the Other OS with Linux installed;
proof of communication between you and SCEA or a third party dated before December 31, 2010 that discusses your use of the Other OS or concerns with Update 3.21 due to your use, including but not limited to, copies of an email from or message board posting by you containing such discussion; or
any other documentary proof that you used the Other OS before April 1, 2010 that the Settlement Administrator reasonably determines to be valid.

Also, I never used PSN so I don't think I'd qualify for this at all.
