    My law-student wife says this may be a form of blackmail, and could not be legally binding. Essentially Sony is saying, "if you do not agree to not sue us, we will not let you use our product that you already paid for and have been using for the last five years+."

    Tell your wife to keep studying. Companies CAN force people to go through mediation instead of suing through TOS agreements. Additionally, they also allow you to opt out (even though it is inconvenient), so there is no way in which it is blackmail.

    Yeah, you can't do this in the UK. They can write what they like in the ToS / EULA, it wouldn't hold up at all.
