Firmware 3.56 Ban Hammer Hits CoD: Black Ops Hackers Hard

Garrett from RipTen: By now everyone should know about the PS3 firmware update 3.56, some more than others. Explained by Sony as a “security update” its effects are being felt by accused modders/hackers. CoD: BlOps hackers are getting hit hardest with a permanent console ban – many of whom have expressed their “innocence” on the Official Ps3 Cod: Black Ops Forums.

Update:

Story now has a picture of the screen seen by "innocent" hackers.

The story is too old to be commented.

lol...this guy needs more honest friends.

A funny one from the forums:

IssY_I : "When i want to play black ops it says my console is banned permanently???
i have payed 150$ for the Ps3 (i bought it yesterday (used) and just came home with a new copy of b-ops! but why is my system banned?"

Infinite-Arch: "Maybe because you hacked........"

bwahahahahaha!

"These drugs aren't mine, I'm just holding them for a friend".

LMFAO!!! Serves them bloody right!!

I see a judge has granted Sony a temporary restraining order on GeoHotz too, things are looking up :D

GrieverSoul2398d ago

Oh yeah!!! Ban hammer for the world!!!

I honestly thought SONY wasnt gonna do it, that it didnt have a way to do it. Im glad I was wrong! Get those A-holes out of my online multiplayer.

This has got to be the funniest one out of them all. It wasn't me my friend did it.

Acquiescence2398d ago

They can't even accept their perma-bans with grace, they have to try and weasel out of it by dreaming up some appalling excuse that no one with one iota of sense would ever believe.

Anyway, Sony has scored a double whammy today. This for one, and just wait 'til you read what's happened to GeoHotz. Sony won the restraining order

...

he has to give up all his hacking equipment within the next ten days!

XD

I_find_it_funny2398d ago

They went hard, new complaints are popping up all the time

DORMIN2398d ago

PWNED.

Thats why you don't buy consoles used...

"enjoy your offline game play"
Average COD Gamer: "What's that?"

Keep in mind, my fellow gamers. It happens.
Honest gamers will oft get stuck in the cross fire of these raids. Don't be so callous.

Dee_912398d ago

LMAO !!
please come do this for mw2
i already have a list of modders who tried to derank me because i was whoopin them

Mahr2398d ago

The best comment is the one asking how long it takes for a perma-ban to expire.

It's like the gaming equivalent of the Darwin Awards.

ProGrasTiNation2398d ago

Well your friend needs to buy you a new Ps3 then.lol
Your responsible for your property

StbI9902398d ago (Edited 2398d ago )

@HolyOrangeCows...And I believe sony is the one to blame? that only gotta show people hacker are nothing but a bunch of fag ruining everything for everyone and not sony's fault.

Next...Gamers again'st hacker, I myself don't see piracy in the next generation, and if that ever reach to happen, expect downloadable only games, screwing who again?...the bunch of us gamers ^.^

jeseth2398d ago

I love how pathetic people sound trying to make up BS excuses and stories.

hahahahah . . .

It's hilarious and sad. With today's technology a lot of excuses don't work anymore, and every excuse here is downright laughable.

hahahah . . .

Good for Sony on this one. Cheaters cheat and this is what they deserve. Its nice to see MS and Sony stepping up to keep their most popular online communities in good shape.

-Still laughing at pathetic cheaters and liars.

zag2398d ago

The real funny thing is.

This Wankerkoko.

Has released CFW using the 3.56 code base and anyone who updates to this firmware will be equally screwed when the firmware probably bans them from the game servers for good.

GT5 hooks into servers while it starts up the game, yet how many people using back ups of GT5 and wouldn't know this or don't understand what is happening to them behind the scenes.

TheDeadMetalhead2397d ago

Heh. Reminds me of all the people complaining on the Bungie forums when they got banned for cheating on Halo Reach. It's so fun to watch them try to lie.

BrianC62342397d ago

ReBurn - Maybe that guy was telling the truth. He says he just bought his PS3 used for $150. A good idea now would be make sure you arent buying a banned PS3 if you buy one used. The last owner might have installed something on it that the update saw and it was banned. If this is what happened it's his problem. He should demand his money back.

zgoldenlionz2397d ago

LOL this is the best news i heard all day! cheaters deserve what they get. im sure a few people have been unjustly banned and im sure that will get ironed out, too bad theres all these wankers trying to play the victim card. its just pathetic.

CaStR0_21 - How long am I banned for?

"This console has been permanently banned from the Black Ops servers....."

Does this mean forever? Or will I be unbanned after awhile?
_____________________________ ____________________________

Close_Second2398d ago

I agree with the banning but what if the console is on sold to an unsuspecting buyer?

Will people who have hacked their PS3 own up when they offer it up fo sale? I would hate to buy one to find it can't play on-line!

I_find_it_funny2398d ago

______________________________ _____________
Really, treyarch is weird, theyre the ones that got owned, they cant accept their game is a fail and got hacked and started banning people legit accounts......
_____________________________ ______________

nobocy cares about your accounts.. you're getting your CONSOLE banned son, move on

Baka-akaB2398d ago

@Close_Second

Just like with everything used , you check the console offline and online .

And even if it still connected to psn , i doubt , as seen with the psp custom firwmares , that the name and version wouldnt show in the sys info of the ps3 .

jeeves862398d ago

@ Close Second

A good buyer will always insist on a contract for anything over a few hundred bucks. If the seller won't agree to a) let the buyer check the console b) agree to the terms of a contract (i.e.: the console hasn't been banned, etc), then it isn't worth buying.

If the seller lied about the condition, they're legally obliged to refund the money, as it's what's been agreed to in the contract.

lmao my favorite..

siyrobbo2398d ago

lets hope the hackers are gone for good and there are no workarounds

theonlylolking2398d ago

Even if some are not hackers treyarch still did them a favor and not have them play black ops.

Blaze9292398d ago

This has nothing to do with the firmware, this is just Treyarch doing what they should have been doing since release: banning cheaters/"exploiters" ; from the Black Ops server. They been doing it on the 360.

But nothing to do with Sony/PSN bans or FW 3.56

davekaos2398d ago

Blaze dunno why you got disagreed because you are right!

its nothing to do with CFW treyarch have banned all those people doing the 10th prestige hack which BTW can be done without CFW.

If you read through my comments you will know im pro sony so i am not trolling in anyway shape or form, I am just stating FACT and not random BS that these journalists put up.

Probably best they did some reseach next time
