And they call me paranoid for not storing anything personal on the internet...
and seriously why did you even give them your credit card number when it's free? this sounds like those "YOU WON GET YOU FREE PRICE NOW" scams.

Here's what Sony owes us. They owe us a system that will be protected from hackers. A system that pushes game updates to registered users would be nice, so if by chance they`re crippled for weeks on end your old games will be playable. It would be nice if they didn`t randomly blame Anonymous simply because they have a bone to pick with them.

I still don't understand why Sony stored our credit card numbers on their servers. Caching them on the PS3 is handy for repeated purchases etc, but why store them in Sony`s servers? When the payment is complete, they have no use for it anymore.

And no, they don`t owe me anything for closing their free services a while.

just gonna try the pro-sony side here

-credit card info stolen was (supposedly) encrypted so not really worried there (and have yet to see any untoward charges on my c-card so think i'm good). Also, most banks, BOA for example, has a pretty good fraud detection system; found that out first hand when someone hacked my account (unrelated to this incedent)...good times.
-sony is giving pretty good amends considering this wasn`t their fault. They were attacked; it`d be like blaming your bank for being robbed. No one does that, so why all the blame on Sony, how about some blame on the attackers which I have not heard nearly enough of. Sony is giving, for free, 2 ps3 games and 2 psn games (granted, older games, but still good titles, infamous and LBP to name two) and they really don`t need to do this, but they are, so kudos to them.
-and lastly, silver lining to being hacked, now they know about their security holes so they`ll be all nice and plugged up.
Ok i`m done
