Planning on using one of those PS3 Jailbreak tools to... ahem... 'make backups of your own games'? You should probably do so under cover of online darkness, as word from the hacking community is that Sony is able to ban consoles using the device.
According to a page on PS3Hax
, the software ID of the Backup Manager installed on the USB dongle could be logged and recorded by Sony when logged onto the PlayStation Network. The Backup Manager has an ID of LAUN-12345, making it quite easy for Sony to detect a user doing something rather suspect with their console.
"As people start getting their PSjb in the next few week, we highly advise that you do not log into PSN while using the backup manager, which means no playing online," reads the page on the hacking website. You could, of course, realise that this is all just a waste of hurdle-jumping and actually get up to switch your game discs instead.
How many seconds do you give it before Sony locks this up with a firmware update? Place your bets in the comments box below.
