Yesterday, a poll was conducted on ps3-hacks.com about who is actually getting banned by Sony with regards to pirated consoles, and the results seem to point that Sony has not really made a mayor move to get rid of pirates other than sending warning e-mails and use the press to get people to switch to the latest firmware. Also, is worthy to note that Sony has not released official figures about the issue, so the actual number of users getting the boot is still very much in the air.
Who's Got the Boot?
- I'm still rockin' PSN to the max and I'm still hacked (35%, 1,252 Votes)
- Sony's first warning scared me; I'm staying off PSN (30%, 1,068 Votes)
- I'm a good PS3 patron; I'm on PSN with a clean non-hacked PS3 (20%, 721 Votes)
- I'm sportin' two PS3s(8%, 286 Votes)
- I'm banned but I don't give a s**t (5%, 171 Votes)
- I'm banned and I miss PSN big time (2%, 70 Votes)
Total Voters: 3,568
Now what these polls are telling us is that there are still a lot of hacked consoles out there that can still get online and Sony has not done anything about this situation. We are left to wonder, why is Sony not banning these people? Are they waiting to get enough proof that they are hacking their console to ban them? or maybe Sony simply cannot distinguish between legit and hacked consoles?
Whatever the case may be, it is certainly is a very risky move since users of pirated consoles are gambling with the fact that Sony could at any time ban them from the PSN network. What do you think, please let us know about it on the comments section bellow
