As the piracy on the PlayStation 3 continues to live on, Sony released an official statement today as to what their course of action is in regards to the consoles that are jailbroken and attempting to access the PlayStation Store.
Similar to what Microsoft is doing to pirates, Sony will be banning both the console and the PSN account if found that the consumers are violating the ToS. Below is the official announcement of Sony:
Important Access to the PlayStation Network and Access to Qriocity Services Notice
Unauthorized circumvention devices for the PlayStation 3 system have been recently released by hackers.
These devices permit the use of unauthorized or pirated software. Use of such devices or 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/Qriocity and its Community Code of Conduct provisions.
Violation of the System Software Licence Agreement for the PlayStation 3 System invalidates the consumer guarantee for that system. In addition, copying or playing pirated software is a violation of International Copyright Laws.
Consumers using circumvention devices or running unauthorized or pirated software will have access to the PlayStation Network and access to Qriocity services through PlayStation 3 System terminated permanently.
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.
There you have it folks! Have fun getting banned on the PlayStation Network!
