Damb this whole thing stinks of Fish.
Whilst Sony wallows in its own stinking pool of poo Microsoft are lapping it up.
There's one for the Conspiricy Theorists.
Best defence to all this consol madness :----- Go back to the games machine thats best..........a PC ! least there we know where we stand.
I cancelled my CC the day after the attack and it seems rightly so as Dear Sony stated "12,700 non-U.S. credit or debit card numbers and expiration dates (but not credit card security codes), and about 10,700 direct debit records of certain customers in Austria, Germany, Netherlands and Spain".
I know of 2 people in the UK who have had thier bank accounts fleeced since the attack so looks like Sony may be holding back on info regarding the areas covered by the details stolen.
As for Sony holding CV2 numbers....of course they do , I have made several purchases on PSN and i have only ever entered my details once , LOL check out the option that lets you disable automatic rebilling!!!!!!! How can you have automatic rebilling for services if Sony dont hold the CV2 numbers.....simple you cant cause if they didnt have the numbers the auto-bill would fail.
As for Sony offering all PSN users one year’s free access to an identity protection scheme i think it should be free and built in to the network period.
Although on the flip side if Sony are offering a service of this nature then they are pretty certain that this will happen again and they wont be able to stop it. Hence the need for ID protection scheme.
Shame though PS3 is an awsome system ( I'm a Nvidia FanBoy LOL ).
Oh well back to WoW
