Want to use the PSN? Well promise to never sue Sony then…

Following numerous lawsuits against Sony, the console manufacturer has gone some way to prevent this occurrence in the future.

Here’s the exact change from the new terms and conditions:

“Other than those matters listed in the Exclusions from Arbitration clause (small claims), you and the Sony Entity that you have a Dispute with agree to seek resolution of the Dispute only through arbitration of that Dispute in accordance with the terms of this Section 15, and not litigate any Dispute in court. Arbitration means that the Dispute will be resolved by a neutral arbitrator instead of in a court by a judge or jury.”

Like all other updates, the user agreement must be accepted in order to access the PSN. So if you want to play Resistance online this week, you better not have any plans to take Sony to court in the future. Although, if you did have a sudden change of heart, you technically have 30 days to write to PlayStation and decline the document.

Then again, this whole thing will probably end up being pretty pointless because as we all know, there is always a loophole.

      The only organization that can block you from suing them is the Federal Government.  That’s it.  
      The Federal Government has a say weather they will LET you sue them or not…  Love that government.

  • I’am fine with that, this is very useful for US because its just absurd, everyone wants a slice of a pie and they will find ridiculous  reason to sue company or person. However it should also protect rights of consumers, not take them away.
