Sony threatens PS3 jailbreaker ban

Sony has said it will permanently block PS3 owners from the PlayStation Network if they’ve used a PS3 jailbreak on their console. Sony describes PlayStation Network as “a world of entertainment” in its notice and confirms that the PS3 jailbreak ban will have hacked consoles “terminated permanently”.

Is Arnold Schwarzenegger writing copy for Sony now? The blog post, actually by Jeff Rubenstein, Sony’s social-media manager, states that customers can duck the ban by ceasing to use and removing “all circumvention devices and deleting all unauthorised or pirated software from their PS3.” Sony hasn’t said when or how it’ll carry out the PS3 jailbreak ban.

Heavy Rain’s “intense scenes” and explicit content have been revealed and detailed in a report from the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB). Expect nudity, sex, drugs, violence and some spoilers ahead…
Quantic Dream’s noir drama Heavy Rain is set to hit the PS3 on February 24 and it’s explicit moments have come under the microscope in an ESRB ratings report.
The report reveals that Heavy Rain features a healthy dollop of sex with shower cut scenes revealing your character’s arse and breasts (when you’re playing a female character). There’s also a topless dancing scene where the female character is forced to strip at gunpoint and a sex scene where you’re prompted to control the characters.
Heavy Rain features four main characters affected by the Origami Killer, a serial killer who kidnaps children in public places. The ESRB reports reveals some of the games most visceral themes with talk of a dead woman in a bath, an autopsy on a dead child, a woman set on fire and a man impaled by a power drill.
The ESRB report says the “most intense instance of violence” occurs during a sequence in which a character is forced to cut off part of his own finger to save his sons life with the option to choose between several instruments (a saw, scissors, a knife). Though the camera apparently pans away from the action, the report claims the “psychological terror may be unnerving for some”.
While sex scenes in the game fade out with only glimpses of nudity, the ESRB says the camera focuses on drug use with characters taking Triptocaine, a white powder which causes them to stagger and turns the screen blurry. The good news for gamers is that the game’s graphics are reportedly “highly-evolved” and “sharpen the sense of realism”.
