    Regarding that the screenshots on the source's page are from invitation only marketplaces (you can actually find out what page it is on one of the pictures, i wont mention it here)
    this might be bothersome news.

    However I'm also not considering Sony dumb enough to lie about the CC information being encrypted on their severs and safe.
    Probably someone is trying to make money by selling fake information because everyone who cares about the files is looking for this at the moment.

    I also think it was a good move by Sony not to buy them as the seller might easily make copies of it so it really makes no sense in buying the information.

    Let's hope this news is fake else Sony is in some deep shit now.

    Not sure if I'm buying it. If it's true, though, we're fucked and Sony's going down.

    This is the level of seriousness this news post shows.

    Besides, you *willingly* inputted your Credit Card information into the system. You handed over information you're not supposed to hand over to anyone, review your banking statement if you don't recall ever reading it. You agreed to Sony's EULA regarding PSN. They owe you nothing, nobody can assure a system will be 100% hack-proof. They had some security measures, they believed they were enough to keep data unencrypted for convinience sake and they were wrong. Tough luck and bullocks, doesn't change the fact that you shouldn't keep your *real* adress, name, surname and first and foremost CC information on any account ever - you could've bought PSN points instead, but NOOOO. Be the lazy bastard, bend over and scream "dear hackers, please, [censored] me here" while pointing at your behind.

    Yeah I don't, you just keep buying on credit and pay money later. There must be some way then, right?

    If someone uses your credit card, they can buy anything because you got unlimited credit(most of the time it's capped though). Then you need to pay later. It's not your cash. Get why you can't take all the cash off your account now? The only thing you can do is call the bank and tell them to freeze the card. But then you don't have it. That's why it's troublesome.
