In an ongoing battle against the recent breach of security on the PlayStation 3, Sony has today sent out a ban-wave targeting users on the PlayStation Network who are using the PS3 Jailbreak.
According to several hacking forums and websites, Sony has actually been getting in contact with those recieving the bans, telling the cheapskates Jailbreak users that they have a very limited amount of time to get rid of everything associated with the Jailbreak device -- including pirated games.
Jailbreak users who have not done as Sony have requested have already had their accounts banned. Users have been posting up the messages Sony sends them, like this one -- this is the warning message:
"A circumvention device and/or unauthorized or pirated software currently resides on your PlayStation(R)3 system. Immediately cease use and remove all circumvention devices and delete all unauthorized or pirated software from your PlayStation(R)3 system. Failure to do so will result in termination of your access to the PlayStation(R)Network and access to Qriocity(TM) services through your PlayStation(R)3 system."
Users who refused to do so, as stated above, have had their accounts banned and their PlayStation 3 consoles are no longer allowed onto the PlayStation Network, as this message clearly states:
"Notice: Access to the PlayStation(R)Network and access to Qriocity(TM) services through your PlayStation (R)3 system has been terminated permanently due to the use of unauthorized circumvention devices and unauthorized or pirated software on your PlayStation(R)3 system.
This use violates the terms of both the "System Software License Agreement for the PlayStation(R)3 System" and the "Terms of Services and User Agreement" for the PlayStation(R)Network/Qriocity(TM) and its Community Code of Conduct provisions. In the unlikely event that this termination was in error, contact your local consumer support centre."
