    Hey,

    I have installed a couple of games on my PS4 and was wondering if i were to delete them and update to play more recent games, will i get banned?
    Is the system keeping a record of the hacked games?

    Thanks

    You have to reinitialize the ps4, deleting the games still leaves activity logs behind.

    No one is known to have been banned for this so far on PS4 so you are likely okay, although it's not possible to say what may happen a year or two years down the line. Sony could change their policy and it's possible although not likely that they could have records of some sort.

    What would be the best process to update?
    Is it necessary to reinitialize?

    Without reinitialize you probably would get ban , due to notification tab and activity log on the system.

    I might make a section in the AIO GUIDE on reinitializing for virginisation.

    I will update it as more info is discovered.
