Banned from PSN for no reason

13 Replies 1,741 Views Created 30-09-2009

Some of you may recall a few days ago I left a thread using my login issueskidus complaining that I had been banned from the PSN for no reason at all.

 

Well I complained to Sony, left threads and made several phone calls.  So far I have heard nothing back from Sony nor received an apology or reason why I was mistaking banned.

 

Well there is slightly good news.  Looks like Sony HAVE admitted fault because I am now able to log in again 2 days early which could only have happened if Sony had decided that they banned me for no reason.  Still, this won't stop me from writing to the head office because there is no way I should have this "suspension" remain on my account profile when I have done nothing wrong.

Yes, they emailed me with information like "LBP offensive image" and I rang them up and they said the same.  Turns out I don't have a PS3 Eye nor could they explain what they meant by "offensive image" or what the image was.  I also couldn't log into the forum or go online with my PS3.

I'm not trying to pick a fight here, but you don't pay for the service so you have no actual rights, if Sony did ban you for no reason well thats up to them access to their online service is not a right, in effect you are a guest and if they don't want you using their service thats their right. If I walked into your house and you asked me to leave, would you expect to have to explain yourself to me?

Ok, first off that is total rubbish and you know it.

I paid for a PS3 and part of that payment is for the use of the "free" PSN service.

 

Secondly, if the police come round to your house and arrest you for no reason are you telling me you wouldn't be annoyed?  I was banned for no reason and with no explanation and I'm guessing most people will find that totally unfair.  I was accused of doing something I had no way of actually doing and obviously it turns out I was 100% correct because I appealed against my ban and Sony have now lifted that ban early, because they know I am right and can't actually tell me why I was banned.

 

Finally, I'm glad you have this view because hopefully you will be banned for doing nothing and you should be fairly happy with that.  And now you might say "well I never abuse the PSN or give them any reason to ban me".  Well the same goes for me, I have done absolutely nothing wrong and I have proved that so why should I be banned?

The fact the psn is free is irrelevant whether you paid £300 or £30.

If you have a 360 even after buying your system you still have to pay to play online.

The  £300 you for your ps3 doesn't factor psn network into the cost that cost is passed on to the developers that is how they can provide a free service.

Well said. If you have done nothing wrong, them you at least deserve an explanation for the inconvenience.

Well that is rubbish as its a well known fact that Sony lose money on PS3 consoles, and please tell me you are not likening this to being arrested? 

As for me getting banned from the network, if it happens it happens, but I won't cry about it, I have a life I'll just do something else.In short you do not pay a subscription fee, the service is free, you have no rights, live with it or buy a 360 and pay £40 a year.

Granted only a few people have replied but I see nobody agrees with your "so what If I get banned for no reason" statement.

 

The fact is, it may be a free service but companies can't just discriminate against somebody for no reason.  Its still part of the reason you buy a PS3, to use the PSN service which is provided.  Why should I pay the same amount of money as you and use the service in the same way as any other decent user yet be singled out by Sony not allowing me to use a service for no reason?

 

If you walk into a shop, sure they can ask you to leave but if you act the same as any other customer, and lets assume you are doing nothing out of the ordinary, you don't physically offend anybody or smell or whatever and they ask you to leave their shop simply for no other reason other than they feel like singling you out and that's that.  Then you have been victimized by a company for no reason, its also against your consumer rights, you can't single people out for no reason.

 

Besides, the fact of the matter is that I proved I had done nothing wrong and your arguing for Sony's freedom to ban anybody they please yet your against me arguing for my freedom to use a service which other decent user is allowed to use?

Why is he a nasty piece of work? He's only stating his opinion.

 

To be honest he makes a fair point.
