Whilst Sony is currently sueing Geohot for jailbreaking the PS3, we haven’t had an official statement for Sony, until now. The company posted an official statement on their blog, which basically says they will ban anyone using a hacked console for life.
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.
You can see the full statement over at the PlayStation Blog.Filed Under: Gaming News
