I cannot think of any other explanation and it would certainly be in character to try to force earlier customers to purchase new hardware.

The players listed under the "products I own" section are unrelated to any plans the company might have. It's just a list of the most common ones that people added to that field when it was a fill in the blank. I just went ahead and added the ZP100 and ZP80 as they should be listed. The 90 was renamed to the CONNECT, so it'd fall under that field. We don't have an entry for the controllers on there, either the CR100 or the CR200 (CONTROL), probably because they've been discontinued for so long. The DOCK, BRIDGE, and BOOST also aren't listed in there because they're less likely to be listed by someone.
If you'd like a hand getting your old account back, I can assist with that. You can send me a PM with the email it used to be under or the account name and I'll let you know what we can do.
