Your Console ID is sent to the auth server on bootup or whenever you try to login to PSN. Obviously its your personal identifier for that machine.

Meh, i dont give a shit about PSN, if i want PSN i just go get a used ps3 slim console for dirt cheap.
We kinda banned our selfs in the end.
Sounds like to me they are calling our bluff, almost trying their hardest to get us to upgrade to OFW 3.56.
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.
Thats very nice of them, unlike them infact why are they doing this, could it be because they know they cant stop those who arent stupid enough to play games that arent released yet or those who hack games like MW2?
As it stands,
I have modded my PS3, NOT ILLEGAL.
I have backed up my games, NOT ILLEGAL.
Im using the PSN network, against their rules ONLY WHEN I BREAK THEIR T&C`s, however if I decided to upgrade to OFW I am agreeing to their T&C`s again so how can the ban me as I wont have broken any laws and they are preventing me using the device I purchased with PSN access.
It would then be them who are Breaking the law and selling goods which do not meet the description of sale. A nice small claims court order me thinks!
I think this is one bluff by Sony to try and get us all back on OFW.
Only people who will be banned IMO are those stupid enough to play games early and hacking to cheat.
Hail to the Commodore 64
I can't tell you how insanely happy it makes me reading that statement. I have 2 systems, one K3.55 that I use to backup my legal games and run homebrew and one ofw 3.56 that I use for PSN and the like... and I gotta tell you, I am tired of cheaters taking advantage of the scene to **** with games like CoD, MW2, WaW and CoD4 are virtually unplayable cos of hacked lobbies.
I gave up my right to go on PSN the moment I installed K, that's why I bought a second machine. For anyone upset cos they wanna have their cake and eat it too, remember the 2 most important quotes in history:
1. The Cake is a Lie
2. There is No Spoon
So drink water, mutha****as!
If this is my last day on Earth, I wouldn't want it to be socially awkward...
nah I believe they start banning

So what do you mean, they're in the wrong by doing this or what?

Then again, if you all don't take those precautions, it may give the devs a non-piracy related excuse to get cracking on those NPDRM keys, so either way is good.
Yeah, Yeah, cool story, Sony.
How about you bring down the hammer instead of repeating what the **** ever is in your EULA? No need for all that whinning.
couldnt have said it better myself tbh im just surprised it took them so long
