Hey i just bought a PS3 a few months ago and so far i am liking it but i wanna know what are the no no's of PSN as in how do i know whats allowed and not allowed? i of course know hacking, cheating and anything that involves game exploits is bannable but what else should i watch out for?
also i have a small question a friend of mine on my local forum gave me his account and from that i downloaded a few games i didn't know what this was and later on learned it was called gamesharing at first i **bleep** brix and was worried whether this is bannable or not, some people told me including my friends that the games are valid for up to 5 activations and so far he hasn't used any other activation, now the question is will i be in trouble? will i get banned permanently or temporarily
there are also certain arguments that game sharing is only illegal if you ILLEGALLY acquired the game off a persons i.e without their consent where as if it done with the consent of the primary account its okay
i hope i can get some quick help, thank you
If you want to really know what causes a PSN ban, read the Playstation Network terms of service and user agreement. Pay special attention to the "Community Code of Conduct". Here is a link PSN user agreement
thanks bronx but that still doesn't answer my question that will i get a permanent ban or a temporary ban? I cant seem to relax since i found this was not allowed =( this is my first 3rd gen console and i honestly did not know it was illegal
Things like mouthing off to people on a game, bullying, inappropriate messages/pictures, hacking, etc..
You could read about it in the TOS or something,. try the support page, that gives info @ bans
i am pretty sure i won't do abusing or stuff like that cause i only message my PSN friends and i don't voice chat as well in MP games and i never exploit or hack. but this gamesharing thing has me down =(
P.s i just found this
