Only Sony will decide how long to ban you. Just quit worrying about it, and simply don't do it from now on! Move on with life already!

Stop doing it and keep quiet.  You're just drawing attention to yourself.

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


how will sony know that you are game sharing? i always download stuff to my ps3 and then download them to two other ps3's which make them three with same account with no problem.

If you own 3 PS3s, they are all in your house. Sony would not notice that. But if you gameshare with somebody that lives in another state, then somebody signs into your account in New York, then 5 minutes later somebody signs into your account in California. Sony might think you could be gamesharing.

Re: What causes a PSN ban?

@spoon, i get that gamesharing is illegal, but i wanna know whether the sharee (the person who used the account of his friends) will get a perm ban or a temp ban? i mean tihs is my first time and i am pretty sure ill get a temp ban of a month or so right?

 

EDIT: hey guys a crazy idea just hit me, what if i delete all the games off my main account? and delete the 2nd profile which i used to sign in with my friends details? with that set things right? i wanna know if it will work or if its a futile attempt
