Banning a modded console from PSN is perfectly legit. They have every right to protect their network.
However disabling a modded console will only lead to major trouble for Sony.
The potential for a lawsuit here is amazing. Not to mention all the bad PR.
Anyway, this is all just propaganda. (and it comes from "sony age forums") Everyone knows the genie is out of the bottle. There's not putting the cork back in now. So lets try and scare people away from jailbreaks and CFW. Well to Sony and your agents on NeoGAF... good luck with that
What if you don't connect your PS3 to your network in the first place?
This fails for purely offline users.
As for the "pirate" scene I'm sure someone(some people) can figure out a way to disable these checks.
"Playstation, it only does EVERYTHING"
hello DD-WRT, it's been a while.
Your ps3 would connect automaticaly to the nearest password-free wifi to send the logs.
What if you live in a place where no other networks are found?
theres no free wifi spots near my house + connecting to other peoples wifi will be a intrusion of privacy so that aint going to happen
you know you can disable the wireless on the ps3.
yea but cant you just turn off the wifi on the system? the wifi spots around my house are password locked, so it cant upload sys checks to the server if it has no connection
This isn't 100% true. The iphone for example will always connect to wifi when it's available. My gf's iphone 4 brand new and never used at my place til the other day auto connected cuz i didn't have a password truned on. She didn't even tell it to connect. This same auto search and connect thing is in the ps3 for sending logs. It's the samething gonna be built in to the 3ds for updates. It's a legal gray area they get away with cuz it's concidered your fault for not putting a password on.
ever since I used jailbreak I never had the guts to connect my first PS3 to PSN, so i'll be safe from having that forced automatic update
But yesterday rumors started filling the offical ps site that, the wifi reenables for just long enough to send the logs threw a near connection everytime the ps3 gets turned on. Sony has been taking down these post ASAP.
I wouldn't be surpised if this is infact true or if sony will issue an update to make it true.
its most likely in the EULA that the user agreed to it (without bothering to read it of course) that they can collect data about the PS3 on boot
if PS3s are using open wifi spots to call home. Pull the damn plug
Thank god all my neighbors have a Wi-fi security password
Let's play with an unplugged PS3 then, eh?
Quite a sneaky move by Sony. I'd imagine each and every user ended up agreeing to it so everything said so far is probably legal. Really curious to see how this whole pirate VS Sony situation will pan out.
Please use your head and read the article. kthx
Sony does have the right to ensure that products they make continue to be stable, and jailbreaking can be considered making the device unstable, as there's no guarantee that nothing wrong will happen.
