    Sony’s New Terms and Conditions Stop Users From Filing Lawsuits

    Matt - September 19th, 2011 9:15 AM

After the tough time Sony have had these past few months, it was only a matter of time before they went to new extremes to keep themselves safe. That’s right, did you fancy suing Sony for all of the hassle they’ve caused you? Well, tough! A new update to their terms and conditions literally stops you, the user, from being able to file a lawsuit against the company.

You’re asked to sign this new agreement when you next sign into the PlayStation Network. It will only be shown once, as long as you decide to accept the new terms and conditions.

Failing to accept the new agreement will result in you not being able to play games online or use the store until you agree to the new terms and conditions.

A very tough approach from the company, which seems like something only a company struggling to keep hold of it’s users would feel the need to do.

Included in the new agreement is the following statement, “any Dispute Resolution Proceedings, whether in arbitration or court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class or representative action or as a named or unnamed member in a class, consolidated, representative or private attorney general action.”

Apparently, you’re able to opt-out of this clause, but to do so will require a written letter from a PSN user to Sony HQ.

What are your thoughts on this odd situation? Will you be avoiding the company or bowing down to their demands?
