195w 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 [Register or Login to view links].

Sony must of had something to do with this, they had to authorize it.

Guys: If you think this will turn out to be ONLY a COD cheaters ban then you better start re-thinking again. This case here might just be a case of banning cheaters but more is on the way.

Can I guarantee it? No! However, I believe Sony is pulling out all stops over this PS3 hack. They're going nuts! Taking down CFW developer sites. Going after Geohot & failoverflow.

They're just losing their minds. We don't know what they're capable of doing in regards to bans from PSN. This shows they can do more already than what most have stated. I just got a feeling. More than banning cheaters is coming out of this. I just really believe that!

Am I missing something? Where does it say it's form Sony or show anything to do with Sony? This is from Treyarch. Also it's my understanding, Activision Raven Software, Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games, among others have a big hand with Treyarch, and Sony is not one of them.

So I think it's them thats pissed with the so called hackers. Or script kiddy's as the DEV's would call them, not Sony. Anyway its their servers your banned from, not Sony's servers ?

SONY ARE NOT BANNING ANYONE FOR ANYTHING! well that's what I think, it's to soon for them at the moment.

Too right, cannot stand the game, sony should in there rights stop people playing backups online and cheating. That's fair.
