Why would they? Banning legitimate customers is beyond stupid. What kind of idiot organisation would think that's a good idea?

How very convenient of them to say that. I'm sure they will get praised once again as they are playing you like puppets

A company not banning you for spending $400 for one of your products as soon as it comes out? Seems like it should be the rule, and not the exception. Thank you Sony.

I'm really surprised MS continually shoots themselves in the dick. I thought after E3 and the welcome change in DRM policies there would be a shift in PR. Instead, around every corner something else bad pops up. I guess they have their reasons. Whatever it may be, it doesn't seem to benefit them :/.

Good thing they still have a butt wad of money to advertise with. Despite the negative press within the gaming community I think they'll do well enough this holiday (in NA).

They will sue you instead if you post confidential videos and features of their system online before the system launches.

The crazy thing is that this particular news was spawned by someone asking Shu a question on Twitter. They didn't even make it an effort to comment on it independently. Shu's been instrumental in helping Sony's image with simple answers for the community. He's like a classy human FAQ for PS4, lol.

It's the common sense thing to do. You don't ban paying customers because a retailer messed up.

I'm hearing rumours that Sony is slipping PS4 early to one up Microsoft. How pathetic can they get, truly are desperate to "win" but I guess if the PS4 is not a success it is curtains for them. But I guess it will be curtains anyway, selling 80+ mil PS4 wont save them so deep in the red.

MS has garnered so little goodwill from gamers that they've made it so easy for Sony. All Sony has to do is not act like assholes and they've got a free pass. MS's PR has some serious work to do this gen.

He's asking if he will get banned if he gets it before the EU launch which is after the US launch. If he got the PS4 today and started posting videos and pictures he would get banned guaranteed.

Yes now let's all bow to the almighty Kaz and praise Sony because they have something called hindsight to base it off of. I don't blame microsoft for doing this. The product is not finalized and released for launch. Again, all this ban from Microsoft does is block the console from connecting to XBL until the 22nd. People act like he can't power it on, or the console is ruined by a perm-ban. All it does is keep him off XBL until the product actually launches. But yes, lets just use this as another reason to bow down to Sony and praise Kaz. You cows are really getting pathetic and redundant

I don't think MS would be that stupid either. I don't think they would perma-ban people for going online before launch.

I sure hope they wouldn't. MS isnt banning people either, just you can't do anythign with the console until they release the day one patch. In a sense, that was a smart way to prevent people who broke street date from showing everythign off, but it was actually not intended for that.
