An Italian website who claimed that Sony has started banning PSJailbreak users is in fact posting fake info. The post was first made in late August, and uses an old screen from PSN that is two years old.
For that matter there's yet to be any real response from Sony. No idea if they can block the the thing with an update.
Bans seem inevitable, although they have not started yet. On the FP there is an article claiming they have, although this is nonsense based on the false info from the Italian website.
suspended = you're being watched, we can perm-ban your ass anytime you pirate
Ban those Mutha Fuakers
I'm sure the pirates aren't stupid enough to go online while using the Backup Manager.
And I am sure Sony can see what you do offline the next time you go online. They aren't stupid, they probably anticipated the PS3 would be hacked since day 1. They'd know people would try those things offline not to be caught. Even the Wii log you when you're offline, so the ps3 does it too. Sony are probably telling themselves they were lucky the ps3 took this long to hack.
If they weren't stupid, then how is MS banning them from xbox live? As soon as SONY starts banning this idiots, we will see news like "Collective lawsuit because SONY banned a bunch of idiots". Interview in Fox News: Banned idiot: "But I thought SONY was joking about banning idiots like me!" Idiot Fox News Reporter: "SONY should pay for all the damage done to this hard working parasite that wants everything free. This is UN-AMERICAN" SONY: "FUCK U parasite, buy another console" Me: LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL (while playing Killzone, LBP2, etc"
And Fox News has to do with what exactly? Keeping in mind I have no general love for Fox News, as they railroaded Ron Paul every chance they could. But, I don't see the connection.
Yeah saying Fox news is pretty random, since most media outlets seem to have a bloodlust against vidya games.
i think ya readin into the joke a lil 2 much but basically Fox always seems 2 jump on the bandwagon wit video game hatin & not makin ne sense when they do or wantin 2 hav a say in gaming when its clear tha last game most of em played was pong
Mass Effect, Medal of honor. Fox is the #1 network that would do anything to hurt gaming. Remember the interview with the guy from gametrailers.com when the sex scene in Mass Effect? Is just a joke, but I do hope the pirates get banned
Hell I'd say its fake just for the fact that Sony is smart enough to put a space between console and suspended, not to mention not capitalize suspended at all. Also the text is a smaller value than the rest of the error message and placed horribly. Its pretty obvious its a horrible photoshop job. They should have just edited the source code to make it look more believable, but I guess they're not that smart.
People will be all like, time to go online with the backup manager then. Then Sony drops the Banhammer lol.
Someone @maxoncole is really an idiot. The fact that they used an old image, doesn't mean that Sony doesn't started banning pirates. The image is used just for 'scenery' They (the italian site) never sayd that the image 'is actual and it's the prove'
It was posted in late August too, wouldn't many more people be reporting 'bans now too' if they happened so quick? Use your brain.
i'm italian, they say that some users have been banned: Alcuni utenti che si sono precipitati all'acquisto della chiavetta in questione e abusandone senza farsi troppi problemi sulla legittimità delle loro azioni, recentemente non hanno potuto fare altro che constatare che la loro console era stata esclusa dall'utilizzo di qualsiasi servizio online offerto da Sony. Short translation: Some users that have already bought the key and used without thinking much about the consequentialities of their action, found that they have been banned from all the online services offered from sony. The image can be there for "scenery" but they written about banning.
the picture is old but its also has "create account" in the top left. basically someone tried making a PSN ID called "consolesuspended" hence the reason it has no spaces. The "sorry an error occured whilst creating your account" also gives it away ;p
OK so this happened right after PSGroove was rel'd? And it just affected a couple of guys in Italy? Come on grow up. Any site can make up BS.
Yes, it's very probably bullshit, I translated that to confirm it for You Noob above that was saying something wrong. PS: maybe next time use reply
What ever happens you can be reassured that everyone will blame Sony not the hackers that caused this junk to happen. 'Sony I was just trying to crack your security. I wasn't doing anything wrong. Why did you ban me?' Deluded people are deluded
I'm guilty of pirating many PC,Wii,DS,360 games I will admit. Truth is I need one system I can go online with so I don't need to worry when playing online. So the PS3 will remain my only legal system because no online gets old after a while.
Thanks for ruining the industry, damn leeches.
Leave it to Sony to do nothing to stop piracy while MS does their best and automatically bans hackers.
Maxconsoles are being hit whores again. Why because this is the only way people care about them. Well when we all know what will happen to them when people stop to care about this. Nothing that's what.
New games, like LBP2 and GT5 (Just to names some. Both now need the new PS3 update to play them, because without the update the PS3 doesn't pick up that they are a game. They can start screwing with the games to make it were you haven't to update, because then you couldn't play anything new then and it would kill a long list of games hackers could play.
just make the new games uncopiable somehow, before they are released ...if thats even possible? ~Shrugs~
