PS3 Firmware 3.60 Update: Banning Jailbreak Systems?

Since the PS3 was hacked one would assume that Sony would be trying to develop something to counter this. We do not know how true this is, but we have reason to believe that PS3 firmware update 3.60 will be banning systems; that’s according to SlyGamers.

When Geohotz cracked the PlayStation there was mixed reaction from users. Those who are out to save money did not care, but most who would much rather do things the legal way are angry that jailbreaking the console could cause games to increase in price.

SlyGamers believes that they have the proof that firmware v3.60 will ban Jailbreak PS3’s due to a phone call that was made to Sony Australia. We will not add the video below, but if you want to listen to the phone call, then you will have to visit the source website.

The caller, who obviously has a jailbroken PlayStation 3 was told in no uncertain terms that he can expect his system to be banned from PSN. This is a lot like the move that Microsoft done with it’s Xbox 360 on Xbox Live. We still do not know if this will happen or not, but it is not impossible.

Do you believe that PS3 Jailbreak Systems should be banned from the PlayStation Network?

how can almost everyone here have an issue with modders they are just bored gamers really and who cares if ppl rent game and copy them the company made the same money off that transaction as they would have if they just rented it and gave it back u still paid to obtain it. what they dont like is the ppl who download and burn games for distribution that is stealing money right out of their pocket.

I hope when this bull crap is settled that they do not brick all the ps3's
There is a new ps3 coming out, and it is said that once sony gets sales increases over time with the new console they will be bricking all old existing ps3 consoles. maybe , maybe not. its all over FCC though.

OMG I can't believe how many solid lovers there are 10 bucks these haters work for Sony and they're trying to scare people into not hacking their ps3 I think this cause someone who doesn't want to jailbreak their PlayStation doesn't really give a **** if other people do or not Lake really watch someone else give a **** if I jailbreak my PlayStation or not my opinion signage is being a ***** because they can't stop the hackers

Iam not Jelous of any one I know fully well how to jb my ps3 simple and easy hell I even did it to a freinds. What Iam concern is for those that do it for evil reason to mod in ranked games should be baned or for those who are to lazy to buy there games legit this will eventualy hurt sales and servers will vanish then poof no online for us psn gamers. I understand theres always two side to a story I even think sony should make moded lobbys for those who want to cheat but going… Read more »

all who agree in a ban are just jelous, most jailbreakers dont just jailbreak to "hack" cod… what other game have u seen that has been hacked, maybe if cod spent more time into their games they be better, less glitchier. instead of just trying to get the money. all us jailbreakers only jailbreak for a reason its our ps3 we deserve to do what the hell we want with it. if we want to hit it with a bat we have the right cuz we spent 399 dollars+tax… so fuck off all who say we ruin the game… and… Read more »

If you jailbroke it stay offline, it may be your ps3 but its their network dumbasses. The community doesnt need you. I hope it does brick your systems, dont wanna be bricked stay the fuck off then.

You guys know absolutely s*** about hacking. A.) To everyone saying don't get angry becau@e you can't follow the instructions on how to mod and unlock your console is an idiot themselves. You have to use someone else's brain powered to unlock your system! You aren't smart either numbness! B.) To everyone rooting and saying yay ban everyone good luck getting online because the major proxies Sony has to set up enable to brick these systems is going to piss all over there own network!

People who say they paid for their system, they should be able to do whatever with it. Sure go ahead, but you should not be able to use your hacked/modded system online. Only in a LAN setting, having that advantage over players who either dont know how to hack, or dont want to hack, is not fair and is considered cheating in many communities of gamers. You want to play modded games, get on the PC. They have special lobbies for that. You should not be able to connect your hacked PS3 to the PS Network what so ever. You… Read more »

Jailbreaking is stupid. All for what, to get a few more kills, or look like you have skills at your games? There are only 2 reasons to jailbreak your system, downloading/pirating games, or using mods to make you look better online or do something your not supposed to do in the game. Whats the point? How is that worth getting your system banned, possibly destroyed because of it? Sure the system will be hacked again, but thats just because these "hackers" have nothing better to do than jack with their ps3. Use that knowledge for some good, why steal from… Read more »

Nothing is unhackable sony spent a lot of time trying to prevent this and they failed horribly. Its apparent that they will fight this till the end, but at their cost. Lets all take a moment so we can honestly agree on one thing, Black Ops is a HUGE disapointment to the Call Of Duty line the graphics remind me of ps2 on a bad day. Up to 3-9-2011 Modern Warfare 2 was actually fun with the modded patch's. The laser sight, colored classes, akimbo thumpers, walking ac-130's, no recoil, aimbot, unlimited emergency airdrops, ufo mode, god mode, two players… Read more »

i did jailbreak my console, not knowing that is was illegal. I am a complete noob when it come to this kind of thing, but as soon as a I became aware of the full implications of this i deleted everything and re-installed all official firmwares. I only unlocked my PS3 so i could i copy my own games onto my hard drive, as i hate pirated games and cheaters. would i punished for this by sony. i have spent over £2000 on my PS3 and all games and i would hate to lose all that, becuase i made 1… Read more »

for all the ppl out there with jailbroken ps3…as if being able to play emulators and backup isn't enough, you just have to go and fucking cheat in games. it is precisely you dumdasses who are causing trouble for other ppl with jailbroken ps3s that use it for playing emulators and backups haven't any of you realize that ps3 jb is not as much of a cause for sony's uproar as these dumbasses that cheats in CoD. ppl that runs OFW complains about the hacking in the game which causes sony to look into the problem which then cause them… Read more »

you guys do realise that u can just down grade from the jailbreak to the older versions. so you can go back to 3.55 (your ps3 is normal again) then update to the latest software. you guys have to realise these guys are hackers they know how to get around things like this.

alot of people here seem to be in favor and just as many against. i wont take sides but i believe sony is well within their right to do so. the ps3, like all consoles, requires an agreement to the EULA (end user license agreement) which simply means that yes, you own the hardware but the software is being rented, not with money, but with the expectation of using it within the guidelines described in the EULA. think about that all you people who say "im unlocking what i paid for further". no your not, you paid for a hard… Read more »

do you think they care about you in return no they dont or they wouldnt be trying to dictate to you what you can and cant do with your console that you paid your hard earned for and legally own.

you are just a number on the bank balance to them.

I’m all for unlocking consoles 100% I love the jail break because it let’s u fully customize the look of the dash board and other mise options I can’t stand cheaters in games takes the fun out but a nice thing to see is. The individual game compony finding a ban solution like vac in steam or just hav a hack detect where it compares data to other players Also nice thing I like about jailbreak is the real freedom u get with ur product I’m jailbroken but u don’t see me stop buying games also the jailbreak leave options… Read more »

what the!!!!!! thats so stupid, i know people who have the jailbreak but still buy games for it, thats gay, sony sucks ass big, im sure there are ways to tell if the game being played is pirated, in fact an example is lbp, they send data to see if the game is pirated then they kick u off the lbp server for good, thats how it should be done for those who pirated a ps3 game should be banned only on that game

You guys take this way to serious first off anyone that says jailbreaking is stupid is a asshole. Cause your so dum that you don't know that true jailbreaking opens your console up for you. allowing you to enjoy your $635 or $499 or $399 purchase to the max. I have Geohots 3.55 and that allows me to play game back from the old days such as sonic 2 mighty morphan power rangers and super mario all stars as well as many more ROMs. now I don't play backups cause I own all my games so I don't need to… Read more »

I know you'll respond to this with the usual ignorant hateful comments but in the end what I said will remain true, so don't bother.

Jailbreakers will never be stopped. MS didn't stop the 360 hackers and Sony is going be the same. It will be the Sony PSP all over again.

Sony can put out 24534563456 updates and they will just update the JB…. and it does not brick your system.. Its rumor. People are just trying to get ppl to stop using CFW. All you have to do is download the newest 3.55 which is available from playstation network lol and use the hidden menu on your ps3.. that gets rid of the package files… thats what sony doesnt like. so i cant load games to my system but i can… Read more »
