PS3 Hackers Issued Lifetime PSN Bans by Sony

Following the recent security exploit of the PS3, Sony is now issuing lifetime PlayStation Network bans to the guilty hackers.

The company discussed the matter in an official statement:

“Use of such 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/Sony Entertainment Network and its Community Code of Conduct provisions.

“Violation of the System Software License Agreement for the PlayStation3 system invalidates the consumer’s right to access that system.

“Consumers running unauthorized or pirated software may have their access to the PlayStation Network and access to Sony Entertainment Network services through PlayStation 3 system terminated permanently.

“To avoid permanent termination, consumers must immediately cease using and delete all unauthorized or pirated software from their PlayStation 3 systems.”

You would think that, being so clever at hacking gaming consoles, these hackers would have the common sense not to then connect the system online to PSN for Sony to see.
