The big cats at Sony have warned all the wannabe PlayStation 3 hackers out there that if they’re caught hacking the system, they will be slapped with a lifetime PlayStation Network ban. This includes the use of unauthorized or pirated software and comes in the light of a recent PlayStation 3 exploit Sony picked up on.
Sony went and released a statement in response to the exploit, letting hackers know they’re watching, it read:
“Use of such 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/Sony Entertainment Network and its Community Code of Conduct provisions.
“Violation of the System Software License Agreement for the PlayStation 3 system invalidates the consumer’s right to get access to that system.
“Consumers running unauthorized or pirated software may have their access to the PlayStation Network and access to Sony Entertainment Network services through PlayStation 3 system terminated permanently.
“To avoid permanent termination, consumers must immediately cease using and delete all unauthorized or pirated software from their PlayStation 3 systems.”
You can’t say you weren’t warned, don’t let Sony catch you red-handed or offline games will be your new preference.
