Actually yes they can....at least in the states they can. SCOTUS ruled in a IIRC 7-2 rulling way back when that you can limit via contracts the right to sue as LONG as you are stating you agree to go to arbitration. Sony isnt saying "you cant take us to court" they are saying that you have to take them to an arbitrator instead of a typical court...AND you can opt out if you do not agree. This crap is actually pretty common in some niches.
