Hunam, it can be seen from both sides.
I, other than having no PSN for a few weeks, have not been affected at all by the hack.
Wow so my personal details are floating around somewhere. When have they ever NOT been. The truth will soon emerge as to whether or not Sony had sufficient measures in place with regards to protecting our personal data. Slamming Sony for their grossly inadequate infrastructure is of course your prerogative, but it's hardly based on facts.
I'm sorry but people 'not trusting Sony' are just plain idiots. I do not say this because of my allegiance either.
Trust is not an issue when it comes to dealing with corporations.
I may not trust Lloyds TSB or HSBC, but at the end of the day they are bound by financial services and regulations to the point where they simply cannot get away with any unjust behaviour.
The same surely applies to Sony, as we will soon determine once all of these external companies conclude their investigations into the hacking.
If they were negligent, we'll know soon enough.
So Hunam, (not knowing your allegiance or setup) lets assume you've been a loving PS3 user since day 1 and had bought many things from the PSN to date.
Are you now going to go down the pre-paid card route?
Are you planning to use some form of pre-paid card for ALL online transactions?
