Firmware Update: COD BanHammer or Serious Flop?

Is the latest firmware update [meant to stomp down on cheating and pirating] a big success, getting people exactly what they deserve, or a gigantic flop hurting lots of “innocent” gamers?

While its too soon to tell if a lot of innocent gamers are getting hammered, check out some pleas of innocence on the Ps3 blog after the jump [courtesy of Ripten].

How long am I banned for?

“This console has been permanently banned from the Black Ops servers…..”

Does this mean forever? Or will I be unbanned after awhile?

  1. well, if i get banned, then we will know for sure if its attacking innocent people or not. =D im technologically challanged, afterall. i wont know for a while though, since my shool work prevents me from playing it. So far, it sounds good, and the guilty party often runs to the “not guilty” plea rather quickly when caught, in an attempt to get out of it. there may be some innocent people but no definite knowledge on if that is so or not, as of right now anyways, for me.
