∞ PlayStation Network terms updated to prevent lawsuits


Sony is updating the user agreement for the Playstation Network starting on September 15 and one of the changes included in the update seeks to stop class action lawsuits against the company.

Sony was the target of a hacker break-in earlier this year that exposed tens of millions of user accounts because of lackadaisical security. Sony’s move is a defensive measure to prevent more legal exposure. The company allows you to opt out of the arbitration clause, but you’re required to do so in writing within 30 days of agreeing to the new terms of service.
