Sony's Official Statement Regarding PS3 Circumvention Devices and Pirated Software!
Sony's Official Statement Regarding PS3 Circumvention Devices and Pirated Software! –
Finally, after almost 6 months of Sony users Jailbreaking their PS3 Consoles, and being subjected to many firmware updates, and scene developers with lawsuits filed and websites getting takedown notice, the big boys have finally issued a Public Official Statement today!
Official Statement Regarding PS3 Circumvention Devices and Pirated Software
What this means to you
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.
We can all guess what is next the big BANHAMMER aka Microsoft Style!
Circumvention devices and game piracy damage our industry and can potentially injure the online experience for you, our loyal PlayStation customers, via hacks and cheats.
Many PlayStation.Blog readers have asked how we intend to deal with these incidents that they have been reading about in the gaming press, and this is our initial response.
By identifying PlayStation 3 systems that breach our guidelines and terminating their ability to connect to PlayStation Network, we are protecting our business and preserving the honest gameplay experiences that you expect and deserve.
Rest assured, this message does not apply to the overwhelming majority of our users who enjoy the world of entertainment PlayStation 3 has to offer without breaching the guidelines detailed above, and we urge you to continue doing so without fear.
Update: That didn't take long thousands of members have gotten EMAIL's!

Ladies and Gentlemen the BANHAMMER has arrived
is it only that psn account or is it any account you try to use?
Might be a console ban, but i'm not sure yet cause i can't create a new account. Sony is going thru some maintenance on their end. Which means ho ho ho account checking for people who are on CFW!

Woot, that's good to know. Let's see how are the others doing so we'll know whether S0ny is indeed laying the smackdown.
