“System” means each of the proprietary PlayStation systems known as the PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PlayStation Portable (PSP), PlayStation Vita (PS Vita), and PlayStation Vita TV (PS Vita TV), including all iterations and server emulation of each. Collectively, all of the foregoing are referred to as the “Systems.”

6.Interpretation. Except as modified by this PS5 Amendment, the GDPA will continue in full force and effect. In the event of any conflict between this PS5 Amendment and the GDPA, the terms of this PS5 Amendment will prevail solely to the extent of such conflict. This PS5 Amendment may be executed by
