    lol a PS3 and a Wii fanboy? That's a new one. Perhaps you need to learn the definition of fanboy.

    Idiot.

    MEGA FAIL!

    On Tuesday, after several days of near-silence, Sony said that as a result of the attack, an “unauthorized person” had obtained personal information about its account-holders, including their names, addresses, e-mail addresses and PlayStation usernames and passwords. Sony also warned that other sensitive information, including credit card numbers, could have been obtained.

    If you have provided your credit card data through PlayStation Network or Qriocity, out of an abundance of caution we are advising you that your credit card number and expiration date may have been obtained,” Patrick Seybold, senior director for corporate communications at Sony, wrote in an e-mail message.

    He declined to comment further about the prolonged network outage.


    Huge blow for Sony.

    I only really play COD.

    But it's free, so, meh, it is what it is.

    I don't play enough for a monthly fee.

    After 2 days without reporting fraudulent purchases on your credit card, you can be charged up to $300 for said expenses.

    How long did Sony wait to let us know? 4 days?

    Lawsuits will be filed.

    This is the 7th Day PSN has been down.


    From IGN.com :)


    Is Xbox Live working?

    Here's a list of things you can still do:

    * Download recently released Xbox Live Arcade games like The Fancy Pants Adventures
    * Use Netflix
    * Fire up party chat and catch up with your friends
    * Try out the Gears of War 3 beta
    * Play Mortal Kombat and Portal 2 with friends
    * Compare Achievements or leaderboard positions
    * Sleep soundly knowing that your credit card information is safe (for the moment anyway)
    * Know that if Xbox Live ever goes down, there's a good chance you'll get a free Xbox Live Arcade game

    A number of people are reporting fraudulent charges on their PSN-linked cards. I'm keeping an eye on mine as well.

    Tens-Titans is absolutely correct. Sony should have just bitten the bullet when they knew they had a breach and alerted users that their information could have been compromised. None of this "we're going to wait and see to make sure so we don't needlessly worry people". Wrong, people have a right to know.

    Link?


    Anyway thanks for posting. I think I'll probably go ahead and check with my credit card company tomorrow. I really don't want to have to go through another 6-months of headache trying to get my balance right and have them wave fees and all that nonsense.
