Don't believe everything you hear. What happened was a bunch of information that should've been stored in a more secure part of Sony's PSN servers was compromised. They don't know how much was stolen, but they know everything including names/emails/birthdays/account names and passwords were compromised. Sony's PSN security teams aren't sure if credit card info was compromised in this attack.
I'm not convinced by Anonymous' declaration that they had nothing to do with this attack. It's too much of a coincidence that this happened just as they were attacking the PSN servers in an effort to bring the PSN down.
