Users of Sony's PlayStation 4 (PS4) were greeted this week with some of Sony's less exciting PS5 preparation steps: a prompt to accept PlayStation Network's (PSN's) new terms and conditions.

Did you read them? Be honest.

While conceptually very similar to what came before, there's still a lot to consider in the new document: ambiguities, codes of conduct, assignment of things like vocal communications, termination rights, streaming permissions (or the lack thereof), and much, much more.

Legal Language has no limits...in Virtual Legality.
