    I heard rumors that since the PS3 has been hacked, people can now access your used credit card numbers and stuff...
    So should I buy it with a credit card, or is it safer just buying a PSN Card?

    Those are old rumours and have long since been proven untrue. Any personal information is stored on secure servers. Just because the ps3 is hacked, doesn't mean those servers are. Whilst there is a way to hijack a PSN account, it would involve you being silly enough to find out and tell people your ps3 unique ID. Even then, PSN has moved on so it's no longer a threat to the users who actually use PSN.

    So again, the rumours are untrue.

    The credit details thing was only an issue for your own PS3, and only if it was hacked.

    It's kinda ironic of what happened to the PSN, since you guys were like: "Don't worry, you're safe!"...

    It was a separate issue.

    It's like me telling you on Monday that you didn't get stabbed while you slept, but then on Thursday you get stabbed.
