doesn't matter, I killed my old card just in case. Better to play it safe.

Yes, "Better safe than Sony" as the saying now goes

@Arkanaloth Ditto. The only cost to me is the 6 day wait for the new on to turn up.

@Yellowdancer ^ I laffed. "Better to be safe than Sony". XD

Gosh, it's a good thing that their security was so sophisticated or our information could be in the hands of thieves all around the world. Close call!

This really is great news for Sony.
Alot of the media outlets painted a picture that "77 Million" Credit Card numbers were stolen and being used.

Happy this is not the case.

@TheApprentice

The media are very stupid when it comes to Video Game News. I was watching the news this morning and they claimed that the same thing happened with the Xbox Live service this morning. But nothing of the sort happened....

Our regular info may have been stolen, but there's nothing there that can't be found in a phone book...

Really? Didn't know you could get birthdays, logins, and passwords from the phone book.

Oh, know what else? Good luck finding any info on me in that phonebook, since I have an unlisted number. Just like after the PSN network comes back up, I'll be an unlisted PS3 user, as I am deleting my account. I'd rather lose the PS1/PSP games and DLC I already bought then take another chance on Sony's "security".

Only PS3 exclusives will be bought for my PS3, and no DLC or any other downloads will ever be purchased on it again.

All other games and their DLC will be bought for my 360 or my PC.

"All other games and their DLC will be bought for my 360 or my PC. "

Problem there is, the PC side has had more hack attempts than the PSN network with various success rates.

And there've been times the 360 has been close, but not quite. But, that doesn't mean it will never happen. You never know. I wouldn't trust M$ as far as you'd trust Sony.

I always used game cards from GameStop. But I am eagerly awaiting to get my Killzone 3 Brutal Melee going on ASAP.

A pity that, shortly after this got posted, there was a report that the hackers were offering up a batch of 2.2 million credit card numbers stolen from the PSN.
