Cancel culture invited to PlayStation: Sony enables RECORDING of game chats & lets players TATTLE on each other for hate speech

Just months after getting woke on hate speech, Sony has updated its PlayStation system to record players' game-chat conversations and enable users to snitch on each other for saying things that violate the firm's code of conduct.

A software update launched this week for the PlayStation 4 video-game system included an alert, warning users that “voice chats may be recorded for moderation” and that “by joining, you agree to being recorded.” A separate “safety” notice explained that gamers would be able to send recordings of chat conversations to Sony when alleged violations of the “community code of conduct” occur.

“When behaviors that violate the community code of conduct are reported, PlayStation Safety will review the reports to check if there have been genuine violations,” the notice said. “These recordings will be used only for safety and moderation purposes.” The company added that the code of conduct is meant to ensure that the game network is “fun for everyone.”
