I got an e-mail from Sony today. They’re changing how PlayStation Network (PSN) is managed, and with it they’re changing the Terms of Service. The e-mail included a link to a PDF of the new TOS for my perusal. They were nice enough to make all the changes obvious. All changes are in red lettering — old terms crossed out, new terms right next to them. The bulk of the changes just refer to the change in management.
However, there are two big changes they’ve made.
- By agreeing to the TOS, users waiver their rights to class-action lawsuits related to PSN.
- PSN content is no longer being purchased by the user. Instead, we are licensing the use of the software.
