    PS3 JailBroken Console Banning discussion

    So what is this possible banning of JB Ps3 consoles, what does this do when Sony starts waving the banhammer.

    Does it make your console unplayable or something or only that if u unJB your console that you cant use it online anymore becuae ur registerd as user with JB. Or does it brick your console.

    Never read anything on it

    If sony bans your console it means you won't ever be allowed to sign in to PSN (Playstation Network) which means no online play, no downloading demos, updates, DLC etc. Similar to what happened to xbox users. You can still play your games but you can NEVER go online again with PSN

    I'm curious if they ban your PSN account as well. I have 2 PS3's, so if the jailbroken one gets banned, it doesn't make much difference to me. But if my PSN account gets banned, well that has a lot of moneys worth of stuff on it that I don't wanna lose.

    Actually you can go online now with the newest payloads but its a very high risk of getting banned. But imagine if someone figured out a way to go online without sony knowing you are in JB mode. If you get banned now then later on you might not be able to go online at all.

    i'm sure it sony would ban the PSN account that was signed in at the time of banning.

    Why not setup another PSN account on your JB console and leave your usual account active on your standard PS3, that's what I did.

    Is the account registerd to a ps3 console?

    I have 5 different account for global PSN access but all on same PS3, if let say my US account gets banned does my ps3 get banned or only the account i logged in with.

    i think they would ban your mac address like they did on the 360.

    they don't ban on mac addresses on the xbox every xbox has a unique kv key if that one is banned your screwed unless you have a jtag, because on a jtag you can exchange the kv key.
