Sony has started banning the PS3 hackers, modders and offenders in Europe and the US! The move came after Sony issued an official statement yesterday warning PlayStation 3 jailbreakers and homebrew software users that they will be ‘permanently’ banned from the PlayStation Network, as well as Sony’s Qriocity media network. First, those running custom firmware or using pirated software receive the following e-mail:
“A circumvention device and/or unauthorized or pirated software currently resides on your PlayStation(R)3 system. Immediately cease use and remove all circumvention devices and delete all unauthorized or pirated software from your PlayStation(R)3 system. Failure to do so will result in termination of your access to the PlayStation(R)Network and access to Qriocity(TM) services through your PlayStation(R)3 system.”
If offenders do not reformat their hard drives and reinstall the official v3.56 PS3 firmware, they then receive this subsequent e-mail–which some have reportedly received with no warning at all:
“Notice: Access to the PlayStation(R)Network and access to Qriocity(TM) services through your PlayStation (R)3 system has been terminated permanently due to the use of unauthorized circumvention devices and unauthorized or pirated software on your PlayStation(R)3 system. This use violates the terms of both the “System Software License Agreement for the PlayStation(R)3 System” and the “Terms of Services and User Agreement” for the PlayStation(R)Network/Qriocity(TM) and its Community Code of Conduct provision.”
Those so banned will then receive error code 8002A227 telling them “You cannot use PlayStation Network with this account” and see the screen (above) when trying to log into PSN. We will update you when more information on PS3 jailbreak comes in.
