Last time rumor spreaded that sony can ban user through the PSN code if you use the jailbreak to hack sony, and today there is another rumoe came out , it is reported that Sony plans to combat PS3 piracy with Blu-ray disc serial keys.
The situation is similar to what happened to PC games in the past, when you buy a PS3 or PSN game . there is a serial key with it,it is said that you can use them 5 times at most.
This gives Sony a evidence that whether you are authorized to play the game and whether you have a legal copy of the game, and the serial key only works with the same Blu-ray disc with the same serial number.
Here is the quote:
From a very reliable source (SKFU) we have heard a striking new feature of the PS3. The feature would be present even at the PlayStation Network but is currently still hidden.
It is a serial system which Sony will soon start working on. Since the root keys are on the street you can see every homebrew tool (including backup management) make it sound like it was made by Sony. This makes it so hard for Sony to detect and block gamers with backup managers.
The idea is that soon every Blu-ray disc, with a unique number, comes with a serial key. These serial keys then work only with the Blu-ray disc with a matching number.
Therefore, if you have bought a game and put it into your PS3 you will enable it using your serial key, and thus a signal to Sony indicates that you are authorized to play the game on your PlayStation 3.
Reportedly, any serial key may be used only five times, as many PlayStation Store downloads. Given the implementation, according to our source has already been done in the PlayStation Network, and three unknown input fields on the PlayStation Network indicates the probability that this system will be introduced is enormous."
