Sony Begins Its PS3 Bans

If you turned on your PS3 yesterday and signed on, you may have gotten a notice about a new user agreement. Sign this thing and if you are in the legit, then its all hunky dory. Don't sign it and you can't access the PS3 network. Sign it and try to use pirated software and get banned from the PSN, PERMANENTLY!!!

Bout time I think, even with the little amount of time that hackers have jumped into the PSN network, some online games are riddled with hackers and making playing online not fun at all. I means its frustrating enough playing against hardcore legit players, let alone some guy who can take a bajillion points and damage and still be standing.So I'm glad that this (looks like for now) will ban these fuckers. I'm sure they will find some way around it, but for now. It puts them back on their heels.

Here is the letter that was released.

Notice: Unauthorized circumvention devices for the PlayStation 3 system have been recently released by hackers for the PlayStation 3 system. These devices permit the use of unauthorized or pirated software.

Use of such devices or software violates the terms of your "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.

In addition, copying or playing pirated software is a violation of International Copyright Laws. A circumvention device and/or unauthorized or pirated software currently resides on your PlayStation 3 system. Immediately cease use and remove all circumvention devices and delete all unauthorized or pirated software from your PlayStation 3 system. Failure to do so will result in termination of your access to the PlayStation Network and access to Qriocity services through your PlayStation3 system.
