Sony Sued Over PSN ‘No Suing’ Provision

An anonymous reader writes with this excerpt from the Examiner:
“In a grand dose of irony today, Sony was sued over a term in the PlayStation Network’s End User Agreement that states that users cannot sue Sony. These terms were added in September, after a long string of Sony hacks (the official count is that Sony got broken into 17 times in a space of about 2 months), which included a massive outage of the PlayStation Network itself. The suit that was filed today is a class action suit for all of those who bought a PS3 and signed up for the PSN before the September update to the EULA. The suit also claims that this is a unfair Business practice on Sony’s part, and requires users to forgo their rights in order to use the device that they purchased.”
