PS3-Sense writes "You ever saw a cheater on the PlayStation Network and didn't know how to report him, well today we tell you how to do this"
It took 4 years to figure this out? I've known this since December of 2006, a month after I first got my PS3.
Well I didn't know ..
Well I didn't know either and I would like to know when is Sony going to put a users report on PS3 directly to report cheater or modder.
Lol I didn't know either.
same didn't know but now i do :) ty!
does reporting on PSN even do anything? Microsoft's Xbox LIVE Policy team is very vocal on how they operate and take reports so we know how that works. Reports are tied in with with the NXE so pull up a gamertag, report away in the right category and done - every report gets checked. But whoever is in charge of PSN enforcement doesn't speak at all and we know nothing on how things work. EDIT: Wait wait wait.....you have to go to a website to report people on the PS3? oh lord. I could have sworn we used to be able to report users straight from the XMB. I'm looking now but all I see is block user. Dunno. Well I guess I didn't know about this either then. This article is useful afterall.
Hmmm ya know I never really noticed this, maybe becuase I don't bother reporting anyone - usually becuase no one talks. All I see is the option to block the user right now on my PS3. But I didn't notice we can't report users right from the PS3 (not meaning the web browser). Wow Sony, come on.... These are the little things on why people say Xbox LIVE is better than PSN. Something so simple like this is absent from the PS3 and I never knew.
PSN definitely needs an easier process for reporting people. An option in the XMB would be ideal. Although I don't see nearly as many people I suspect are cheating on PSN as on Xbox Live we all know they are out there and more needs to be done about getting them banned.
My solution to cheaters involves my right index finger and a lot of **** talking. I figure it must hurt your pride even more when you attempt to cheat/lag/hack and you still get merced by someone who simply has more game than you. Reports/complaints never get the job done IMO. The person will simply find another way to get back online in the future. Better to put him down and make him realize that shortcuts won't cut it when you're playing against people who are simply better than you.
I never knew this, but there's no way in hell I'm going to the website to report someone. Way too much work. It should be built-in if you ask me.
I've known about this one for about a year now http://np.us.playstation.co...
Every time I lose to an experienced player, and they boast of they're victory, I have to ask myself if I'm really the loser.
wow dude, this is just full of fail. you have to go online on the pc (or web browser) just to report someone ?! why cant u just report people by clicking on them like on the 360.. this method fails so hard.
AWESOME post! We can finally report douchebags OICs in MAG that abuse their mics for 30min of nonstop swearing, etc.
somebody needs to report s.v.e.r (from M.A.G)for having so many of their member using a fricking lag switch.
Its part of the sign up requirements for S.V.E.R. How else would we win 90% of the time. LOL /s
I'm on S.V.E.R. and in all the MAG matches I've played, only 1 had lag. If it is in every game you play, you might need to switch YOUR connection from dial-up
He's talking about using a lag switch to purposely screw the game up and cheat. It doesn't necessarily lag the game, but it effects what other people see of the person who is cheating. It happened in MGO as well. People would lag switch to leave their body behind somewhere and walk around the level invisible. It sucked, and ruined the tournament matches. I haven't played MAG yet, but where there are people playing online their are also losers that can only win by cheating.
Lag switches or lag pedals effect most FPS multiplayer games.
PSN should have it built in, no reason not to.
I think it does, a matter of highlighting the user in XMB and select report... Unless I'm mistaken, in which case I know that most if not all games have a report feature, anyway.
I think it should be easier, but I don't think it should be knee-jerk easy. Take the disagree button here. It doesn't matter what you say, the disagree button is right there so some jackass can always just mindlessly jam the disagree button without any explanation as to why. Now, what if you had to go onto an external site, log on and then express your disagree? Far fewer people would just wail on the disagree button. You'd actually have to take the time to go to another site and hit disagree, which takes a little more effort and I think that would help alleviate the problem of the disagree happy among us. Maybe if they let you report from the XMB, but made you enter in your user ID and a code or something would make it easier to access, but act to deter the mindless "mash that button" people among us.
Seriously. Do you want someone who just dislikes your name, or you shot more times then he shot you, to be able to mindlessly jam a report button and carry on their way? It shouldn't be that easy because people will abuse it. I can't see how it could possibly work.
Why you should read the manual.
There are people who haven't read the manual, and take it personally, it seems.
Should be easier, but personally I've never seen anyone "cheat" on the PSN or Live (not including glitch exploits). In fact the only people I've ever considered reporting are people who spam profanity over their headsets, those, I just find easier to mute.
How is this news? Old.
I just slam their inbox full of gross porn.
But what if they like those gross porn?
Being an owner of a Ps3 I am sad to see this XBL is easier to report a cheater.
Good. Cause I'm fed up when cheaters always cheat ARE NOT REAL GAMERS. I remember playing Need For Speed Underground TONS people cheat like zipping through walls through your own cars and it's unfair when I'm or someone else is trying to compete. THEY SHOULD BAN ALL CHEATERS FOR CHEATING WITHOUT PLAYING FAIR.
LOL! Just another reason why Xbox Live is better. A simple few clicks is all you need to report users.
