    A number of European users have reported that a new PSN ToS is popping up, which they are required to agree with if they want to continue using PlayStation online features. Many people have interpreted this as a step closer to a worldwide PS3 bans because it brings the Europe aggreement to the same level we have in North America. There have not been reports of bans, but as always it is recommended to practice caution.

    Not that is matters. If they can detect you're running pirated games, they will most likely ban you sooner or later.

    I wonder if the PS3 will get any sympathy from the US Congress, like the Android and iOS..

    So it seems no special protection in this case.

    Couldn't have said it better myself. As a reformed pirate, I can attest that you just have more fun if you buy the damn game anyway.

    Yes, because you're a "Nazi" if you're trying to stop people from illegitimately modifying your system so they can essential prevent you from getting more profit from your products. Sounds exactly like a Nazi philosophy right there.

    When you pirate anything you accept the risks. You have absolutely no leg to stand on if you pirated a game or illegally modified your system and got punished for it. You knew what you're doing was sketchy, you took the risks.

    This.

    That's the reason I haven't hacked my 360: not worth the risk of getting banned from Live.
