According to a BBC article, Sony has changed the terms and conditions to their PlayStation Network (PSN). The change adds a new clause called “Binding Individual Arbitration” and states
“any Dispute Resolution Proceedings, whether in arbitration or court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class or representative action or as a named or unnamed member in a class, consolidated, representative or private attorney general action”
Users are apparently notified of the changes upon logging in to the network. If you do not agree, you will not be allowed to use the service. A user may opt out of the agreement within the next 30 days by sending a letter to Sony’s Los Angeles office.
Yesterday a video was making the rounds of the gaming community as a supposed teaser trailer for the much anticipated Resident Evil 6 game that many were hoping to have info revealed at this year’s Tokyo Game Show currently underway. Certainly the “trailer” looked like it was shot from a TSG attendee, and fooled even IGN with it’s charade.
Unfortunately (or fortunately), Capcom USA has gone on record saying the trailer was indeed a fake, though divulged nothing else.
Does this mean that Capcom may be waiting for an official reveal at their TSG stage conference tomorrow? We’ll keep you posted.
The Transformers Collectors’ Club revealed the first club exclusive figure for 2012; Runabout. Runabout is the partner of Runamuck, the club’s 2012 free membership exclusive. If you sign up to be a member by March 16th, 2012, you automatically get Runamuch for free as part of your membership. You also have the option to buy two other figures as a member of the club. Today’s announcement is the first of those two figures. Runabout will be put up as a preorder sometime in the Spring along with another as yet to be revealed figure.
Instead of being productive these last few days, all we did was play video games. Well, that’s not entirely (or even slightly) true. Find out all about our first 2 (of 4) days at the Tokyo Game Show. We will talk about games we played, people me met, sights we saw, and a new life philosophy that will make you a better person (or at least maybe get you a T-Shirt)
While SeanOrange is off in Japan giving us the first hand account of whats happening at TGS this year, we are left to our own devices to provide you with arm chair coverage of the news and announcements trickling out from the land of the rising sun. Rather than do an article for every news item, I figured it would be easier to group these into one related post.
Just before the Tokyo Game Show this year, Nintendo held a press event that focused mainly on the Nintendo 3DS. We have tried to pull together most of what went on during the event here.
The Star Wars Blu-Ray release is finally out and with that we’ve got a collection of some shocking modified scenes not previously leaked. Here we have modified dialogue from Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi as well as some controversial changes to the Jedi ghost seen from the end of the trilogy.
A couple of weeks ago I asked our readers not to buy Star Wars on Blu-Ray and although I stand by that statement, I understand some of you are stubborn and would still like to buy them, so feel free to do so with these convenient links that we get a cut from:
