I agree. The penalty should be that consumers turn their back on Sony and let it be known that it is because they made an asshole maneuver like this.

Customer service is dead and pleasing the purchaser is a philosophy long gone. Companies want to advertise that they are doing good things for people and the world as a whole but it's just window dressing. There isn't a corporation left in the world that wouldn't screw over their own children to make an extra nickle.

Ed: I would pay slightly higher prices gladly for the chance to do business with a company that was genuine, upfront and honest and as loyal to me as they would like me to be to them.

You're acting like screwing over the customer isn't something we've had to deal with ever since humanity first got the idea of exchanging money for goods and services.

No it has gone on for a long time you're right. But I believe there was a time when companies just gave warranties without extra cost and then didn't try to screw you out if the warranty if something went wrong. That business would care if the goods they shipped you arrived in good order or not. Maybe even a handshake from your contact with the business every once in a while.

Truth is, pretty much no one gives a fuck.

No I think the truth is that you don't give a fuck and are projecting your apathy outward in order to validate your own beliefs.

Truth actually is hordes of youtubers and other types of streamers would probably risk loosing A lot of original content they have already produced. Sure it's easy enough to come up with a new substitute for the phrase but all the hard work that has already been done may go the way of much blocked YouTube people created in the past with good intentions.
