January 27, 2011 // 9:31 pm - 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:

CaStR0_21: How long am I banned for? "This console has been permanently banned from the Black Ops servers....." Does this mean forever? Or will I be unbanned after awhile?

But I know I am on the latest patch and CFW so does that entail a higher probability of banning?

If your on the latest 1.05 update and never cheated then I guess your just like me and probably won't get banned.

I don't know why they are banning people but I say it's probably the cheaters getting banned, NOT the CFW your running it from.

I don't like COD:BO anyway, too many campers at spawn points shooting you in the back. I prefer MOH or BBC2. Its front on combat and a lot more fun.

LOL at first commenter "CaStR0_21: How long am I banned for? This console has been permanently banned from the Black Ops servers Does this mean forever? Or will I be unbanned after awhile?"

It says PERMANENTLY banned, not temporary, of course that means forever.

You can hack it to still get online.

Just change param.sfo to say its v1.05 and it'll get online. It should get online...

I just finished a game online with a friend and they are still playing. I'm using Wan's CFW and its all good. I'm not banned. With a backup from USB, updated to 1.05.

As I previously said it probably has nothing to do with 3.56 firmware but more with the 1.05 update that came out recently.

It might also detect what version they are running. They might be on CFW3.55 but if their version of BO is 1.00 then it's a hacked version and get banned.
