So without reading through several hundred pages, can someone clarify if PS4 phantoms are unofficially "dead"?
I've read a few posts stating that they are "risky" and only meant for offline use.. if you leave your PS4 plugged in to the internet with a phantom account on it, does it get locked somehow? Does it matter if the PS4 isn't set as the "primary" PS4 for that phantom account? (I guess you'd have to login to the account in order to set the PS4 as primary for that account?)
Also, locked/risky phantoms are a PS4 thing only right? Not PS3 it seems? It's unfortunate, but sounds like Sony is catching on a bit...
PS4 phantoms are dead. Been that way since april. You can get one and try leaving your PS4 offline, but connecting it at all will likely lock it and you'll be out whatever you spent. People have posted all sorts of methods to get around locking, like if you sacrifice a guinea pig at 12:47AM while facing west and wearing pink lace bra and panties during a full moon, but even theirs locked eventually despite their 100% sure claims.
