PS3 players have been having a hard time as late, since most of their favorite online games have been hacked. Flying around in Modern Warfare 2 or one hit kills in Bad Company 2 aren't fun. Yesterday Sony announced it would be taking action against PlayStation 3 owners using illegal hacking software and homebrew applications to play pirated games. Check out this letter to a hacker that Sony sent:
Notice: Unauthorized circumvention devices for the PlayStation 3 system have been recently released by hackers for the PlayStation 3 system. These devices permit the use of unauthorized or pirated software.
Use of such devices or software violates the terms of your “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.
In addition, copying or playing pirated software is a violation of International Copyright Laws. A circumvention device and/or unauthorized or pirated software currently resides on your PlayStation 3 system. Immediately cease use and remove all circumvention devices and delete all unauthorized or pirated software from your PlayStation 3 system. Failure to do so will result in termination of your access to the PlayStation Network and access to Qriocity services through your PlayStation3 system.
Now I feel that if you buy a system, you should be able to do what you want with it, however if you go into online games and mess with other players' fun, then that's a problem.
