PlayStation Home Manager Issues a Warning to Members


249w ago - It appears Sony is cracking down on those who are sharing their PSN identification and password to grant select items in PlayStation Home.

PSN game sharing is also labeled as violating the ToS later in the PS Forum thread (linked above).

Community Manager CydoniaX stated the following:

As many of you are already aware, there are members of our community who are requesting your PSN identification and password to grant select items in Home.

We would like to remind you that the Home staff will never ask you for your password, or any other personal information in Home.

The members of the community doing so are participating in activities that violate our terms of service. This is wrong, illegal, and most definitely NOT OK, and we will be handling these offenses accordingly.

Please be assured that we know who has done what. We know that many of you who participated in this are also some of our most dedicated and enthusiastic Home users and might not have been fully aware of the ramifications of your actions.

That said, appropriate actions will be taken against individuals violating our terms of use.

I am saying, is that law? If i agree to drive your car only on the main road, for example, But then i decide to take a shortcut, does that make me a criminal? You could sue but was it "illegal". There is probably some law that someone will point out that says companies can make their own laws through these documents or something. But they should stick to "breech of terms" instead of using the word illegal.

when you click i accept, you're legally bound to the TOS and EULA that the "I Accept" button is referring to. if it says you cannot share or you have to pay 10k to share or that they want the ownership to your vehicle in order to use this software. and you agree. its legally binding.
I still think its just a side effect of capitalist culture. Its not necessarily how it should go (not black and white) but it is what they have found will protect the companies income

This thing about legal and illegal is annoying, in relation to software and its use. The company puts out a write up on what they allow you to do and if you dont do only that its illegal (they are the law?) Feel free to remove my service but calling it illegal i think is iffy.

Obviously next time you boot a piece of software you need to read what you're agreeing to instead of blindly hitting "I Agree."
