Sony's released firmware update 3.56 for the PS3 and although it's already been hacked, it appears that, at the very least, cheaters are feeling some painful effects of the "security update."
RipTen reports that many cheaters are experiencing a "permanent console server ban" and many are expressing their frustration and innocence on the official PlayStation 3 Black Ops forums.
"How long am I banned for?" asked user CaStR0_21, 'This console has been permanently banned from the Black Ops servers"¦' Does this mean forever? Or will I be unbanned after awhile?"
prEston124 says "Today i got my account back finally an It wont let let me play online idk why it says prem ban i didnt do anything man i miss black ops well looks like i have to get a 360."
"Hi i have been banned for black ops when i click online it says you have been Prem banned from B.O but i didnt do anything to get banned what i did my m8 said he was 15th yea and i said let me go on ur acc then if ur 15th so i just went on his acc and he was 15th and then deleted the user then the next day when i went on my account that message came up my psn is FoRzA-MoNsTeR I am 6th prestige on B.o legit my KD is 1.79 and my wins to losses is 1.14 and a 124 winstreak i did not boost at all please unban me," said badderz1.
These are just a few of the many posts made in the forums. Whether they are legitimately innocent or not remains a good question.
