Sony to ban PlayStation 3 hackers for Life

by Jeffry on February 16, 2011

A ton of stuff is happening in PS3 jailbreaking paradise! After taking legal action against Geohot for Play Station3 Jailbreak, Sony has issued an official statement on the matter and warns PS3 users:

“Notice: Unauthorized circumvention devices for the PlayStation 3 system have been recently released by hackers. These devices permit the use of unauthorized or pirated software. Use of such devices or software violates the terms of the ‘System Software License Agreement for the PlayStation 3 System’ and the ‘Terms of Services and User Agreement’ for the PlayStation Network/Qriocity and its Community Code of Conduct provisions. Violation of the System Software Licence Agreement for the PlayStation 3 System invalidates the consumer guarantee for that system. In addition, copying or playing pirated software is a violation of International Copyright Laws. Consumers using circumvention devices or running unauthorized or pirated software will have access to the PlayStation Network and access to Qriocity services through PlayStation 3 system terminated permanently.

“To avoid this, consumers must immediately cease use and remove all circumvention devices and delete all unauthorized or pirated software from their PlayStation 3 systems.” Via

According to one account, “If you get error 0x8002A227, Sony banned your PS3 from the PSN.”

We feel that Sony is sending a dangerous message to its consumers that it has rights in the computer it sells you even after you buy it, and therefore can decide whether your tinkering with that computer is legal or not. What do you think? Please share your views. We will update you when more information on PS3 jailbreak comes in. Do not forget to follow us on twitter and facebook fanpage.

If you can play the games try playing something with an age range to suit your mental age! How about Hanna Montana!

        Sony doesn’t mean people who cheat in games,they are talking about people who use custom software.Even if you do have a pirated game you can’t cheat with it ,you need special software(trainers) that changes the temporary memory stats,you can use it with original games too,and i’m guessing you played multiplatform games,has it ever crossed you mind that maybe someone on a xbox or PC is cheating.
