A fair suggestion

10 replies 202 views Edited Jan 8, 2014

Why wont sony unban banned consoles by paying a Fee through the playstation Store?
I mean, if some guy bought a banned console from a stranger without his knowledge about the ban, he'd be a bit screwed.
So I highly suggest that Sony makes such option.

That the disadvantage of buying an used console they won't unban the console as they don't know for certain if the owner of the console is a different person.

You do understand that not everyone is rich enough to buy a new console, right?

Yes, I think many people do, however that is not SONY's responsibility.

It is, they banned the console for a reason, therefore if the guy felt sorry or a new guy bought the banned console without his knowledge of the ban, why can't they simply unban it for a fee? The fee is to guarntee that even if the guy lied about buying the console, he'll still get the lesson of not swearing or whatsoever.

Sorry, I don't agree.  Someone broke the terms of service, then committed fraud by selling a system without disclosing its defect.  Using your logic Ford or GM would then be responsible for someone selling a car on which the odometer had been turned back.

 

In order to disaude people from doing this SONY would have to charge a high enough fee to unban the console that would have you complaining about the price.  Otherwise banning consoles would no longer be deterrant.

Buy the game you can afford or make sure it is not banned before.

You understand that everyone that got console banned would just claim they bought it used like that to take advantage of your "Fair Suggestion" and continue their bad behavior right?

As I said, the reason for the fee is to make sure that such bad behavior wont happen anymore.
