To quote from TechDirt.com (linked above): "Some folks were not at all happy about this and sought to file a class action lawsuit against Sony for the change -- but that lawsuit has been (pretty quickly) [Register or Login to view links] by the court, suggesting that the main guy suing failed to show evidence of any harm.

In an interesting move, the court found that the fact that you lost access to the network if you didn't agree to the new terms isn't evidence of any harm, but rather a choice."

PS3 Can Block Transfer of PSP / Other Game Titles to PS Vita

400°
122w ago - This weekend PlayStation Vita hacker Hellcat has discovered that when connected, the PS3 entertainment system downloads a list of content IDs from PSN and can actually block the transfer of PSP / Other game titles to Sony's PS Vita handheld console.

To quote: "The PS3 offers the very convenient option of downloading PSP content from the PSN store, store it on the local hard drive to later be transferred to a PSP or a PS Vita.

And here comes the catch: When you connect a PS Vita to the PS3 via Content Manager and use the function to transfer “Applications (PSP/Other) downloaded to the PS3 system” to the PS Vita, while the “Please wait” is shown on the PS Vita and before the PS3 sends the list of available titles, it fetches a list from PSN servers and crosschecks the local content against this list and only offers those titles to be transferred that are not “blocked” by said list.

I don’t know if it is a blacklist or a whitelist, and it’s encrypted, but it is used to hide or block out titles from being transferred to the PS Vita!

So, for example:

You downloaded MotorStorm Arctic Edge in time to your PS3 and also successfully transferred it to the PS Vita and did not delete it from the PS3.

He believes that they were the victim of a sophisticated vendetta orchestrated by elements within the hacking community, stating it was a revenge attack, due to them going after a PS3 hacker who exploited the PlayStation 3 console. Below is an excerpt from the interview, to quote:

NEW YORK (TheStreet) - Sony (SNE) has bounced back from a wave of hacking attacks on its PlayStation business earlier this year, according to CEO Sir Howard Stringer, who says that digital assaults are an occupational hazard for major firms.

“The press was on us for four days until somebody else got hacked and everyone realized that hacking is a fact of life,” he said, during a briefing event organized by The Wall Street Journal. “We took it on the chin over and over again - the problem that we have is that we were alone out there, so nobody had anything else to write about that month.”

Sony’s security travails certainly grabbed plenty of headlines. In May, the company confirmed that it was the victim of a massive denial-of-service attack, likely timed to coincide...
