tried to make another account. that isnt working. this doesnt seem fair. while i understand the reason for banning users there is no way to know if a used console is already banned. should be a way to fix this problem


You have a valid point, but you also have to look at it through Sony's eyes. How would they know for sure that the previous owner sold it and you purchased it? I'm sure a banned user has tried calling in and using that as an excuse at some point. My advice would be to either talk to Sony and see what you can accomplish or take it back to wherever you bought it and exchange it for a different one.

Double post, but...You should NEVER buy anything off of craigslist that's A.) that expensive or B.) without testing it first. I don't think you will be able to get unbanned since there's really no way to prove that you purchased it after it was banned.

That is probably why the previous owner got rid of it, knowing he was banned, and could not get anywhere with it.  At that point, he did not care what happened after that, since the MAC address was being blocked.  Did you know the previous owner?

IM thinking you are right. I do understand their side of it. Again knowing that your customers buy this game console for online game play you would think that this problem would of been considered. People should really think about this.

Every place near me is sold out, besides, they are $250+, they can't just expect you to go out and buy a new console. Maybe you can forward them the ad that this guy made and also your email conversations? That might convince them that you actually purchased it recently.
