How awfully kind of them.

Yup. This could have stayed in the other thread. It was in the link I posted.

Sony, doing the obvious things that the competition seems to not comprehend.

#5 Edited by silversix_ (13648 posts) -

of course not lol this is not microsft

#6 Edited by Doom_HellKnight (12187 posts) -

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

and people will dick ride Sony even more for a basic thing only because they look like saints compared to MS

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

I like that Yoshida always gives straight "yes" or "no" answers. No bullshittery hoodwinking with that guy.

Not THAT is Live, Learn and Love in action folks. No smoke or mirrors just the by gamers, for gamers mantra. We are humbled Sony, thank you .

Exactly. Dude acts like SOny shouldnt get credit just because MS is eating from their own asses

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.

Hahaha where are all the noob lemmos who were defending M$ in the other thread? TLHBFO

Magnificent ownage. Sony is ruthless.

He was like "LOL NO" in his head. meanwhile microsoft takes all your freedom away as a gamer.

#24 Edited by TREAL_Since (11946 posts) -

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).

Sony is being very ruthless in their marketing. This just makes MS look even worse than they already do.

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.

#30 Posted by Scipio8 (608 posts) -

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.

You have a link for these Rumors?.

#32 Posted by NathanDrakeSwag (5127 posts) -

MS bans you for buying their product. Remember that lemmings.

#33 Posted by Multipass35 (295 posts) -

Who really cares? Honestly. 99% of the The One and PoS4 buyers won't get there's before launch.

Why did Ms have to be such a big meanie pants for? :(

#35 Posted by KarateeeChop (4590 posts) -

sony is desperate after all those cancelled ps4 preorders. they can't exactly afford to lose any more fans.

yea, they need every sale they can get.

#37 Posted by tdkmillsy (1227 posts) -

childish Sony childish.

You would have done exactly the same had someone got on early.

A guy asks Sony a question and they answered him. How is this desperate?

#39 Posted by SKaREO (3161 posts) -

Well, yeah I already took that for granted. Why would Sony do something that stupid?

#40 Edited by KungfuKitten (20673 posts) -

Well played, Sony. I like this.

#41 Edited by Riverwolf007 (23398 posts) -

of course not.

when has sony ever enforced any standards for behavior of the community?

ever?

even once?

#42 Edited by getyeryayasout (6909 posts) -

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.

#43 Edited by superbuuman (2531 posts) -

Ah MS continually shooting their own foot. MS - Xbone silliness continues. :)

#44 Edited by darkmagician06 (6060 posts) -

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.

#45 Edited by AppleFan1991 (3022 posts) -

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

Gotta love Shu.

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

#50 Posted by Phazevariance (10906 posts) -

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.
