Stolen PS3's are untraceable??
 

 
what kind of sh*t is that. my friends house gets robbed and you know damn well soon as those ps3's login to the playstation network they could get there ip numbers, but apparently playstation isnt aloud to do that. probably nothing we could do eh? i mean if they login under his username i could actually chat with the people who robbed them(or have stolen property) can i get the ip number myself? cause im sure theres website that will trace it for me.

most likely they'd track em by their MAC address if anything.. given if they went online too.

psn=free. so why would sony go through all this trouble for? the console has been sold from the store so it's nothing of their concern. however, if ya friend has the serial # he can report it stolen and if they ever try to send it in for repair or replacement maybe something can be done. since getting online with the ps3 is free there really isn't much they are going to do.

Taunt him? Only a dumbass would say they were the person that got the PS3 stolen from them. I'd be asking made questions as if I was just some other gamer. Like oh where you from and sh*t? Try to get some info. But whoever stole it has to be a moron to use your PSN account and not their own which is free to make...

if a computer was stolen there is absoluely NO WAY to track it. unless they have a tracking software installed. why would a ps3 be any different?

Here is the thing... tracing it IS possible. I don't know why they can't. We can track pedophiles and terrorists, so why can't we use that same technology to trace stolen merch? They did a story on stolen iPods on 20/20 and were able to trace the iPods when they synced up to iTunes. They traced the serial numbers!! It can be done. The police should use this as a deterrant more than anything. No point in stealing a PS3 or Xbox as they can trace it. I wouldn't be stealing one!! Why are people so lazy about things like that? These people violated a person's home and they don't want to use all of their resources to catch them? Maybe there is no money in catching them? The tech is there, its usefull.... but no one is using it. That is bullsh*t!!

If you've got the police hook ups, you can get them to trace it.

But most normal stations would have your stolen PS3 at the bottom of their to-do lists.
