That's pretty lame. But, Sony is a private company, and can do as they wish. As consumers, were free to take our money elsewhere. Unfortunately, I don't know that MS is substantially better (maybe they are, i truly don't know), and Ninty is far worse, as I understand it.
They've actually been getting better this gen. They allowed Senran Kagura: Shinobi Refle on Switch this gen, which is basically a full game built around the touching mini-game that Sony just forced the removal of in Senran Kagura: Burst Renewal.
