    I know it sounds like a silly question. I get it, I had a simple question.

    SONY apparently does not allow you to sign in online if you have a lower firmware version than the current one. To some users this doesn't seem like much of a problem, but to hackers of the Homebrew Community it is.

    Is there any third party service that hosts online play? For example, if your on a lower firmware version than the currents would it be possible to play online, by hard modding your PS3, or system?

    Wouldn't Sony ban you though for using 3rd Party Content if you connect online? Edit: and by third party I mean things like hacks, or modifications mainly.

    yea ofcourse they would, but if you disable syscalls, you can survive for a very long time, except if you cheat then BOOm you are gone

    Spoofing attempts to fool Sony, but nothing is ban-proof. It's a "use at your own risk" thing, but yes, people do go online using it to avoid bans.

    I was looking forward to actually hacking my slim PS3, and taking the risk of Downgraiding it to hack it. But obviously I don't think that would happen since my family uses multiple PS3 Systems. (Long story short we bought about 3 PS2's, and upgraded them all to a PS3 for free at GameStop LOL.)

    I am also going to guess the ban would be Permeant since moderators would see you as a pirate, or trying to get free DLC I guess.

    Would there be a way to legally unban yourself in the case you got caught spoofing besides reporting it to moderators, and apologizing pleading to be unbanned?

    its not spoofing god damn, there is a difference :-). Disabling syscalls will make you look like that you are an OFW ps3 :-). I oncce had a CID that was not banned for 2 years! I disabled syscalls and used dummy account. I secretly found the cid online, but someone found it and got it banned lol :/
