What a fun summer Sony has had. With hacking here and there people were pissed off enough to start taking a stand against Sony specifically, the PS3 console. Whether you went the legal route or just a different console route; Sony has tried to make amends with the general public by offering free stuff (games playstation +). Apparently that was not enough to settle the angry consumers who’s information was compromised. As a result Sony decided to come up with a different solution..
A new solution to this problem beyond beefing up security (and it’s not retaining the features you paid for): if you accept the next mandatory system update, you sign away your ability to take part in a class-action lawsuit. The only option left for consumers if they agree is binding individual arbitration.
You can however opt out of this new policy by sending a letter to Sony since there is no way to opt out electronically because well that would be too easy, and is essentially counting on you the consumer to be lazy.
So there you have it.. Please READ the FINE Print!
