So why are all my rabid xbox fanboy friends laughing hardily in my face?
Because sony got their shit jacked. If you haven't noticed the week+ long outage of the ps network. Its because sony systems were maliciously cracked, and every
user had all
of their personal information stolen. Possibly including credit card info.
Normally I would not blame sony much. Anyone could get hacked. The big uprising now is why did sony wait so long to tell its costumers wtf happened. I like to be informed, and it kind of angers me to think that someone could of had all my personal information along with credit card particulars. With out a warning. Sony knew what happened early on in this fiasco, now they are playing like its all a sudden revelation.
Sony losing my shit I could easily forgive, them not telling me that they lost my shit... Thats another issue. If you have a credit card tied to you PSN account, you should monitor it closely for any suspicious activity.
edit: They seem to have removed all of what they originally stated.
