It does not work that way.  If you want to use one of thes tool's that you're talking about they don't have *new items on them.  What you will download is about 1,500 item's from the past.  If you want new item's like Midway or Casino.

  1. Know someone that own's that item
  2. weight about a year or so before they make there way onto one of these tool's that you talk about

By that time we might not have the Midway or Casino.  By the way I just checked two of the big item list's and there is nothing from Midway or Casino on them.

 

People that make these tool's have better things to do then spend all there day's on Home so everyone else is up to date.

If you knew what you were talking about you would also know that the ISE allows past and present rewards to be added to an account... Or did you forget you already posted in the thread about people using the LBP Karting kart locomotions from EU in NA public spaces.  Adding new items to the ISE database is extraordinarily easy and there are several groups out there that share up to date lists.

 

So as it was pointed out to you, the point of banning people who hack their PS3 software to get items is so that it doesn't take away the time and effort that others put into getting those same items legitimately and to prevent unauthorized items from being used and items used in unauthorized regions.

Sony's PlayStation Home updated mission statement...


"Like it never happened"


- Stand for something better than mediocrity and don't disguise it as adequate, when clearly it is far from that to anyone willing to be objective and unbiased. -

As, I've already tryed to say a few time's now I'm going to be very vague in what I know.  I don't see there anything wrong with someone getting an item that they use to have and they want back.  But, at the same time I can see how the Home Staff frowned upon this topic so I'm not going to say everthing.  In other words I don't want to get in trouble for saying to much.  You just gave a lot more info in that post that you just made then I would ever feel comfortable given.

 

As for there being "several groups out there that share up to date lists" you could be right on that but I don't know about them.  I just know a few groups and they all have outdated item's.

Just typed up a big thing, and it didn't go through properly, so instead of retyping everything I'm just going to say that you all are lovely people with minty fresh breath.

I have a hard time believing this article!  Don't believe everything you read.  I'm sure they are doing something's, but it won't be totally sound proof.  

 

They aren't known, for staying ahead of the game.

Baloney, I tell you. The official statement is but a public relations maneuvre during what is a gap between first party software and the post release of yet another combat simulator that would please George Bush and George Bush Sr. A means to instill consumer confidence that no illegitimate players will ruin the "CoD experience" for what Sony believes will be a wave of potential PlayStation 3 Super Slim investors.

 

This barely ties to your precious PlayStation Home. It is a public relations message to the lesser minded that Call of Duty: Black Ops II will not be ruined by "hackers" if you play the video game on THEIR system (which as we know, is absurd). Sony is not in the business of alienating its customers from their PSN Store at a time of quarter upon quarterly losses. They will leave it in the hands of Activision's right arm, Treyarch, to suspend user activity exclusively on the servers that host multiplayer matches for this latest instalment. Not from PlayStation Home, or the entire Sony Entertainment Network and its supposed wealth of services.

 

The likelihood is that Sony, the ones barking, will not be the ones biting at all.

No matter people's varying opinions and reactions, I personally, am just glad to see that they have at least taken a proactive measure by issuing the warning. How, what and who will be effected and whether or not it will even be enforced remains to be seen. Microsoft doesn't fool around with hacking of their property and Sony shouldn't either.

 

There are bigger fish to fry in life for sure, but I was glad to see the warning for whatever it's worth. Whether or not this will have any effect on Home I don't know, but I sure wouldn't mind not having to see posts on these forums and people in Home that have the sole, self-serving purpose of gloating about their hacking prowess...especially when some of these items are ones that I have spent money and/or a lot of time to get.

What prompted this crackdown undoubtly was after COD: Black Ops II's release; however, Sony IS biting.

 

Just today, someone I know sent out message from his alt account from another PS3 that he just got a console ban on one of his machines and a formal e-mail filled with legalese from Sony. Account AND console. The ban hammer is coming down HARD.

 

He had the software, but he never once played COD: Black Ops II.

 

I can't comment on how this effects Home users.

 

Online gaming companies ban users in waves, in these instances. Valve does it, and so does Microsoft. This is done for several reasons. One reason, fear. A second reason, security. There are several versions of this software. The users don't know having which version got them banned. This explains why you will see some people skate a ban.
