    The title pretty much explains what I want to say, are the ban risks high or low, and what factors can change that?

    Is up to your self.
    If you are going to take it risky with unpatched ISO's, overburned and truncated disks (if you have flashed your DVD drive)
    Then it's possible.
    If you patch your ISOs and properly burn them with an iHAS or compatible burner max payload tool drive then it's slim to none.
    Xkey, patching the ISOS before you dump them on an external.

    If you're referring to RGH's, you will be banned. The best stealth afaik is Ninja right now, and they're clients still get console banned every couple months or more. The service is also around 200$ a month.

    The risks are high,
    Basically you get a perma ban from their server, you can't use your account for online games.

    PlayStation runs the same system with bans for hacker's. But its less strict, (You only get banned permanently if you play an online game with a hacked ps3.) And Wii completely ignores the system, and allows hacks, but playing with hacks online will result in a perma ban for online services.

    Wii doesn't even have online capabilities anymore.
    Servers where shutdown.
    PS3 heavily depends.
    Some games will detect the usage of CFW and most don't.

    I don't want to get off topic, as this isn't the forum for talking about PS3s, but what games can detect that you are using CFW?

    Exactly that.
    There's probably some lists somewhere.
    Installing Stealthman or however it's called and PSN patches, you'll reduce the risks further.

    maybe, but doubtful. afaik, microsoft was only banning pirates in waves, and there hasn't been a wave in years. however, I'd be careful and stealth patch just in case.

    Stealth patch all of your games with ABGX, regardless if you load it via Xkey or as a disc backup.
