PS3 LAPTOP

3 replies 188 views Edited Oct 2, 2012

Saw this video in featured videos............

 

 

This guy has opened his PS3 and added a laptop battery connected to laptop.

 

I have a question... Can we get banned from Network [PSN] While doing this??

I'm pretty sure a hardware modification would only void the warranty.

 

As long as it is still running OFW, it should be fine.

That sounds right to me.  As long as it doesn't hurt Sony or their customers, I don't think they care.  However, while I'm not aware of any for PS3, there have been hardware mods on other systems that allow piracy, so that kind of hardware mod would probably get someone banned if they could detect it.

And as long as it doesn't affect players.

 

I think Modded Turbo Controllers are in the grey legal area though, as it's "modifying the hardware [...] to gain an unfair advantage." (PSN TOS: Community Conduct, Subsection 7)
