Sony forcing users to not seek class action

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.

Moonshot Games’ Fallen Frontier Preview



From our coverage of Pax East 2011, we talk to Mike McCain of Moonshot Games about the art and gameplay of their first title, Fallen Frontier.

A little background: this entire interview happened only because I was waiting a while to play this game. It wasn’t until I was reviewing this footage today that I realize the person taking so long before me was Tim Schafer.

aDam and I played for about 15 minutes and we were both really impressed. The game played smooth and the level we went through was really huge with lots of options for taking on enemies.

Split screen seemed really odd at first, but totally natural once you played it. Most games will split top/bottom or left/right for two players, but Fallen Frontier splits at an angle, and the line will move or tilt based on which way the players are heading and what they’re doing. When you rejoin, the line disappears and you share the screen again. Really cool idea.

Moonshot still has a long way to go on this title, but its clear they have some good ideas in place already. We can only hope they deliver on our expectations!
