Read the story of a loyal gamer who's account is banned after 4 years an 19 platinum trophies. Click "Read full story" to read all about this Rip-off.
Violation of therms or not. If they wanted to ban them, they should have done it 4 years ago. Feel sorry for them 19 platinum's is sick, just not fair. This is why i am never going to support digital download of retail games. When guy tells you nothing is yours not even money you put on PSN store, just because you accepted therms of regulations, which you have to accept if you want to make an account in first place. Fascism
Terms of service is terms of service. No matter what console, what hardware, what software. Just read it if you don't agree don't agree and don't use the product. Or use it and don't violate it. I agree 19 platinums is sick.
nycredude is right. Terms of service is posted BEFORE any of us even sign up for psn or xbox live. Whether you chose to heed it is up to you. However, on the flipside, what I don't like is that they waited four years to say they found the name offensive basically.
The name was probably reported several times, you can report users on PSN. It probably passes initial check from Sony, but offended other online players. Thats the only reason I could see it taking 4 years for them to act.
rules are rules break them well.... :)
Violated terms of service, what do you expect.
i care..............LOL just playing i dont care.
as they say "to bad, to sad!!" you violated terms to bad.
"too bad, so sad"
thanks for spell check
Sluts are people too. Have a heart Sony.
Oh well there's always the 360 and Kinecto. Oh dear God what have you done!
At least M$ gives you an opportunity to change your name once. Sony should do the same. I've talked to the de-sletjes and they even wanted to pay for it to have their name fixed just because of their Trophies. The weird part is that Sony can decide whether they think a name is offending or not (according to their terms). And if it is offending in their believes they take away all of your money in your PSN wallet including all the downloaded and bought for games and DLC. It just doesn't weigh out.
F*****G JOKERS PS3 it only does muggings PC it only does freedom
Until the same thing happens with our steam accounts :-(.
Bottom line: Sony has a point but the way they handle this case is lame. I vote for advance warnings and the option to change account names. We're note talking about a huge violation.
