225w ago - Previously the possibility of PSN bans was rumored for PlayStation 3 hackers, and today Ripten.com (linked above) has confirmed that CoD: Black Ops PS3 hackers are now being hit with the PS3 Firmware 3.56 ban hammer.

To quote: Explained by Sony as a "security update" its effects are being felt by accused modders/hackers. CoD: BlOps hackers are getting hit hardest with a permanent console ban - many of whom have expressed their "innocence" on the official PS3 CoD: Black Ops Forums.

It's not limited to a few. There are dozens of threads about this topic. Here are just a few of their posts:

Yep. PSN bans is bs. This is a COD:BO ban, not a PSN ban.

It's probably got something to do with the COD:BO 1.05 update NOT PS3 3.56 update.

Cheaters ALWAYS will suck. Once they get caught gotta love how they start acting like they don't know what is going on, blah blah. Good riddance.

One thing is running CFW, and another completely different one, that is screwing around with a game to get the upper hand.
