Sony can detect PSJailbreak and it’s Bannable on PSN


DISCLAIMER: PS3Blog.net, in no way, supports the use of exploitative devices such as this and this post is purely informational

We reported last friday that the PS JailBreak has arrived. But for those of you that actually purchased it. You may want to return it. If you play online the backup manager game ID (LAUN-12345) can be seen by Sony and could very well get your PS3 console banned for it.

Now you could just not connect to the PlayStation Network sure, but is that really worth it? You can’t update your games anymore, update firmware for future blu-ray movies that may need it, etc. Do you always want to live in fear that Sony will drop the ban hammer because you use the PSJailbreak?

    I agree, But now that hackers found a way to hack the ps3 with a usb stick I think someones gonna crack the ps3 soon enough.

    I agree. I wonder how many people jumped on this as soon as the jailbreak was announced.

    Hmmm… if the Hackers do ever manage it and a homebrew app comes about that can play ps2 games, I will jump aboard. Yes, I’m still sulking over to lack of backwards compatibility. Never forgave Sony for it.

    I hate that there is no backwards compatability with the new systems as well, but I have had the backwards capable one since launch, and never use it lol

    Same here, I used it to play God of War 2 and some EyeToy games, but that’s it really. But I like that it’s there when I need it.

    @oly1kenobi Typical! ^^ I must keep an eye out for one of those mythical ps3s

    Backwards Compatibility doesn’t really concern me. I still own a PS2 and it’s not even hooked up seeing as I have no desire to replay PS2 games.

    I’m kind of rooting for hackers though because it seems Sony has been steadily taking back features since the PS3′s release. A legal hack would be nice though.

    YES!! They heard my plea :p

    seriously, this is really good news

    If it’s legal to jailbreak your iPhone why would this be any different.

    Not that I condone this kind of stuff I’m just curious how this ruling will effect Sony’s ability to stop them.

    I still have my ps2 as well, but I got the chance to play some of my old favourites on a ps3 a while back and it was just awesome. The ps3 controllers stood out for me in the experience. An example – Tiger Woods 2004. The most fun, imho, to date in that series. I know you’re never supposed to blame your tools but dammit the ps2 controllers must have had pretty bad quality control. You always had to take into account a controllers predisposition to add fade/draw to a shot. Then there was the no bullshit Sixaxis. No excuses. If you ****ed up, you got a lecture on how much you suck. Happy days!

    Except those PS2 controllers seems way higher quality to me. You could toss one of those against the wall…pick it up and keep playing. PS3 controllers not so much.

    Not only that…PS2 at least had touch sensative buttons since it was analog and not digital.

    Not sure if this news about them seeing the hack is true or not but I wouldn’t want to be the one that got banned for something stupid like that. I usually pay brand new games for about $45 on ebay instead of the $60 price range so I am good.

    I bought my ps3 for $277 brand new a year or 2 ago and I am not interested in it getting banned.

    Ah yes, but that was an illusion. Instead bits came apart inside and the debris jammed the bumper buttons and the joysticks would go off center. They would be good to play with but only if you didn’t need accuracy. I’m still waiting on any of my Sixaxis to show signs of damage from all the times I’ve manhandled them. Been lucky so far with them I guess.

    I had plenty of PS2 controllers with the analog sticks completely giving out (they would fall to the corners or something and feel like they locked up sometimes)

    I love my PS3 and always like to buy originals, but Sony’s thinking is backward. Some gripes I have:
    1) Lack of Region free on DVD and Bluray. I travel a lot and have DVD’s from many countries which I can play fine on my DVD player, but my PS3 won’t let me. Although many Blu Rays are region free, fav films like Punisher Warzone are not. They would have far many sales if they opened this up, freeing Bluray up.
    2) Lack of backward compatability. I don’t want a seperate PS2 to play my games on. It just causes clutter in my already cluttered living room.
    3)Removal of Homebrew was stupid, as most people use it for legal purposes.
    4)Being able to play all my legal games off and external hardrive is a great idea. I have all my DVD’s and blu rays backed up onto a server which plays on my media player. Why can’t I do this for games? I have the originals?
    5) Price of games. Developers really need to take a more enlightened view on new releases for games and make then around the $30 mark. I bet they would sell far more. At the moment I just wait until the price comes down anyway.

    As long as the people who use PS jailbreak and are/were everyday hackers, then i’m fine with that.
