Games After days and days of the Playstation Network being offline, Sony has announced it has taken the service down indefinitely. The cause is a lot more severe than previously thought: PSN has been systematically attacked, and personal information of all users has been stolen, possibly including credit card data. Sony is asking PSN users to keep close tabs on their credit card account statements. This has turned from a rather amusing slap on the wrist for Sony into a massive and truly epic security fail that could have tremendous consequences for millions and millions of people the world over.

The statement is stupid anyways. How far do you take it? Don't get a car loan? Don't get a mortgage? Don't ask someone to spot you for lunch?

At some point we all use and rely on credit in one form or another.
