NINTENDO BANNED SONY’S SHUHEI YOSHIDA FROM MIIVERSE TWICE
Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida has revealed that he was banned from Miiverse a couple of times. Yoshida, who leads the firm’s PlayStation sector, violated the Miiverse code of conduct by promoting his Twitter handle – @yosp – and by expressing his affection for the PlayStation brand. The Sony executive previously confirmed that he owns two Wii U consoles.
“The first time was because I had my Twitter account in my profile and that’s against the rules,” Yoshida said. “The second time is because I wrote, ‘I love PS.’ You’re not supposed to promote a commercial product in MiiVerse, so they correctly interpreted ‘PS’ as PlayStation.”
