If it's true then it will kill the second hand market for ps3 games.
Although it can only count if you go online.
 
Rather boring if that is all they could come up with.


A lot of the game industry have been vocal about wanting to kill the second hand market for a long time, as to them, there's zero difference between you torrenting the game or buying it from someone on ebay. With PC gaming, it basically succeeded.

Geohot's Lawyers Move For Dismissal + Sony's Response

The legal battle, between George Hotz (geohot) and Sony, continues to unfold in the great state of California. When we last covered this subject, the court had denied Sony's request for a restraining order, as the judge felt California did not have jurisdiction over the matter. Sony has been fighting this issue ever since, arguing that California does indeed have jurisdiction. Sony's latest basis for this argument, is a PSN account with the username "Geo1Hotz", which Sony is claiming as George Hotz's account. However, geohot's lawyers are shooting down these claims, and are moving for dismissal of the case all together.

EraseMe v1.1 Released - Erase and Generate Fake Activity Log

EraseMe v1.1. This app erases your "previously played" log. In addition to erasing your log, his app also generates a new one, filled with fake games played. It is recommended that you make your own unique list of games played.

The thought behind this program, is to run it prior to going online onto the PSN, to remove your play logs from Sony's peering eyes. It is possible that by deleting these logs, it will protect your console from the threat of being banned.

gezz how many people here posting actually own a ps3 you have to update the software to log on to psn network always been that way


Then don't log in if you've messed with it. I never logged into anything with my old Xbox or PS2, never had a problem with having messed with them. If you want to be able to do stuff online, and you also want to mess with a machine, I think it's something to consider to have two of them. One to meddle with, and one to keep the way Sony/MS/Nintendo/whoever wants it to be.

As a previous Lik-Sang customer I welcome Sony getting shafted. This is the company that made mod chips for the consoles they themselves produced (the PS2) and then sued Lik-Sang for selling them, forcing them out of business. Evil gits, they deserve all they get, the worst bit of the Lik-Sang story is that the courts supported such tactics from Sony. Welcome to the future.
