Sony Investigating Credit Card Security

So we all know by now that the PlayStation Network has been temporarily unavailable for days now.  What we don’t know is that if our credit card details and private information has been made available by those of gained access to Sony’s Systems.

According to SCE Japan spokesperson Satoshi Fukuoka, that the ongoing investigation includes the security of user credit card details.  The firm also reassured PSN account holders that it will “promptly inform’ them at the first sign of access to our account details.

“Promptly inform”, is that some type of joke.   If their public notice to the user is that networks are temporarily down; well over five days now.  I don’t have a good faith in what their idea of ‘prompt” is.  Sorry Sony, I’m losing faith.

Meanwhile, SCEA communications chief Patrick Seybold has released a company update on the continuing PSN (PlayStation Network) downtime, by saying:  “I know you are waiting for additional information on when PlayStation Network and Qriocity services will be online. Unfortunately, I don’t have an update or time frame to share at this point in time.

“As we previously noted, this is a time intensive process and we’re working to get them back online quickly. We’ll keep you updated with information as it becomes available. We once again thank you for your patience.”

At the end of the day – The Sony PlayStation 3 is the best offline gaming system out there
