PS3 Jailbreak: Sony could detect PSJailbreak and Ban Users

If you are a PS3 owner, you are probably aware that the console is now open to homebrew applications and has the ability to play games off a hard drive, due to the recent release of a USB device called PSJailbreak.

While many PS3 owners are naturally delighted with the thought of playing free games, there are obvious risks, as it has just been reported that Sony can detect who is using the new USB drive, and effectively ban users from the Playstation Network.

Sony has yet to issue an official statement on the recent PS3 hacking, probably since they are hard at work on a new firmware update which will combat the problem and prevent the USB device from working.

More details on this can be seen over at PS3Hax. Do you think users should be banned for using this new device or not?
