He should receive an email telling him why. If not then you need your "brother" to phone Sony.

He could have been banned accidentally, it can happen.

 

Though, 99% of the time the banned account probably breached the T&Cs. As already said, you should have got an email explaining why the account was banned.

Won't be that then... I bet he has glitched/cheated in a game, game shared or used illegal firmware.

I like the 1 where the mums asking why her sons account was banned and the answer is "because he was exposing himself on Uno" :Lol:

all he does it puts the ps3 on, plays a game like he should and that is it. he does not tamper with anything at all. when he goes online on games, he plays as he should and nothing more.
