Sony has changed PSN’s terms and conditions and users have to agree to them next time they log in to PlayStation Network (the’ve added a section in which you can read that you won’t be able to sue Sony – in a group of people – for any security breaches, hacks etc). If they won’t agree to the terms their PSN account will be blocked.
The move comes months after a string of hacking attacks compromised over 100 million accounts of the PlayStation Network subscribers.
Gamers will now have to try to resolve any legal issues with an arbitrator picked by Sony, before being able to file a lawsuit.
The new clauses, dubbed "Binding Individual Arbitration," state that "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".
