    It didn't took long for Sony to act, after giving warning to all hackers and pirates that they will issue a permanent ban to all those who get caught running pirated software on the console, many reports on various hacking forum claims that process of banning has already begun.

    According to the reports Playstation 3 ban seems to have occurred when owner forged a login certificate and rerouted the Playstation's DNS addresses. Banned owners were greeted with the following message:

    "You cannot use the PlayStation Network with this account (8002a227)"

    However the exact reason for banning users is still not clear, whether Sony is banning the PS3 owners for attempting to circumvent the security of the PSN or making use of pirated software on console[/p]

    Sony is a bit late...
    Wonder if it matters since sooner or later another hacker will hack it anyway!

    the other threads are just warnings, people are now reporting ACTUAL bans if warnings aren't cleared

    well late or not, MS usually ban every 2 years or so, lets face it, they got to be sure about the ban before doing so i suppose

    No one actually created a ban thread till now, the bans were hitting since yesterday.

    Sony should have just started with this, much simple, isn't it. [​IMG]

    Yeah, exactly. Sony had issued warnings and sent out emails stating that they would ban all the people who violate the code and conduct. This is the first time that a ban report has come.

    No actually if you ever visit the psx-scene site, a few people were banned straight up and yes the bans were happening since yesterday, not today.

    My bro already jailbroke his PS3 just to do homebrew stuff (mednafen, etc)

    He hasn't tried pirating a damn thing, I wonder what his fate is?

    This is a losing battle for them. Even though they have every right to ban cheaters, hackers, etc, doing so will only make people hate them more. And from what I can see, this is the most hated company in the gaming industry.

    @SPH73 - their live is still free , and the only people who will hate on them is the people who are being affected . the people being affected ; those who have hacked their PS3s .

    the people who've hacked the PS3s don't make up even 50% of the gamers that use it . so i don't see why more hate will be hitting them . . . lots of people use their PS3 and aren't even aware of hacks . only a small percent of the community will hate , and the rest will happily be using their PS3s . in addition to that , they'll be extremely happy seeing all the hackers GTFO from their little Call of Duty games .

    He doesn't, which is smart.
    But he's getting MvC3, which has DLC characters. :\

    Actually, this is getting really scary guys...they've figured out not only how to bypass system bans, but possibly how to get totally innocent systems banned.

    No, they don't.

    I can even agree with hacking a console, but PSN isn't something CFW users have a right to have. If you're using CFW, stay away from these services. Sony has all the right to ban these people.
