Banned Gamer Alleges Sony Violated Free Speech & Stole Money

550°
261w ago - A PlayStation 3 gamer has [Register or Login to view links] (PDF) in U.S. District Court in California, alleging that SCEA suppressed his free speech rights and caused him pain and suffering by banning his account on the PlayStation Network.

In a complaint filed on July 6th, Erik Estavillo of San Jose writes that he is disabled by a variety of disorders; among these are agoraphobia, a fear of crowds, to quote:

The pain and suffering was caused by the defendant, Sony, banning the plaintiff's account on the PlayStation 3 Network, in which the plaintiff relies on to socialize with other people, since it's the only way the plaintiff can truly socialize since he also suffers from Agoraphobia...

Estavillo's issues with SCEA apparently stem from his play of the PS3 hit Resistance: Fall of Man:

The ban is supposedly due to the behavior of the plaintiff when he plays the video game "Resistance: Fall of Man," which Sony owns and employs moderators for its online play. These moderators kick and ban players that they feel are deserving; though their biases to a player seem to be what determines the kick or ban...

The plaintiff was exercising his First Amendment Rights to Freedom of Speech in the game's public forum when he...

Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is Out this Tuesday for PSP

50°
266w ago - Capcom's Shawn Baxter has revealed today that this coming Tuesday Monster Hunter Freedom Unite will be available for PSP.

To quote: Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is just around the corner. It's hitting the shelves on this Tuesday, June 23rd. I've talked a bit about the game previously when we released the demo a few weeks back, and now you get the chance to dive into one of the most immersive PSP games available.

Monster Hunter is a game packed with variety. As the name states, you'll be hunting and slaying all various kinds of monsters in the areas around your home, Pokke Village. There's so many different monsters that I've lost count. And you'll be in a vast and varied landscape of deserts, jungles, swamps, mountains, caves, snow, active volcanoes, and more.

Your character can be customized in just about anyway possible, down to even the sound of their voice. Taking pieces of the monsters you've carved off, and items you've gathered in the world give you the means to create thousands of unique pieces of armor and weapons. With so much to customize, you'll probably never run into anyone with the same setup as you.

Being that the game is so large, you'll never run out of things to do. There's literally over 500 quests to go on, and you can even take...
