Seen a PS4 for sale online that has been PSN banned for a very cheap price

I was under the impression that this should still be functional but will only play local campaign games - is that the case?

Happy to have a non-online console but just need the facts about what you can and can't do with a console in this condition

All advice gratefully received.

just can't play online mate

Amazed no-one has managed to hack this yet - even on the PS3

Has the actual console been banned or just the persons account? First time I've heard of either being banned. Did they say how it happened?

When your console has been banned or suspended no local user accounts on … When your console has been banned or suspended no local user accounts on the system can use it to sign in to PlayStation Network. This means that the system cannot be used for online gaming through PlayStation Network, accessing PlayStation Store or managing your account.



Being unable to get online also means no access to the PS store, so you won't even be able to download your games, even if you intended to just play locally.

​on ps3 you could change the idcp console I'd if you had custom firmware. think it was called that.

You won't be able to use the store as mentioned don't know if it will even let you do firmware updates or patches for games

ban means it could be stolen. check the serial number on checkmend.

​I'd personally stay away from this.

As above, it may be stolen.

Seems a bit too good to be true...

is it a ucharted 4 console ? see some young guy trying to sell one in cex the other day in london.

for £50 could use it for spare parts to repair a ps4 with a broken psu or disk drive as only the motherboard will be blocked

Both Microsoft and Sony ban consoles which people have tried to modify. Never heard of it happening on a PS4 tho wonder what they were trying to do.

set up a new account when u get it. problem sorted! ps4 banned account not the actual console

It could be stolen And Faulty it might crash after a few hours of use, 50.00 plus cost of all the leads and a controller down the drain
