Like what?  What else are people complaining about?

@MAST: The developer article you're referring to was a Sony propriety developer..  Shockingly, they said that people were acting like babies.  Once again, people have lost ALL of their personal details, twice in some cases, which puts us at very large risk of identity fraud, if not credit card theft..  If that's not the type of thing to get angry over, what is?

Oh yeah, I should trust these people with my money. 

 
I hope EA is watching this because if they were to fall to the same intrusions, then they'd lose my future MMO business.  I was thinking of checking out DCU Online, but not any more.  These constant alerts just aren't funny.

Umm, wrong. Just Add Water is not owned by Sony. Yes, Sony has published one of their games, but they aren't dedicated to Sony or anything. Hell, if you simply go to their website and look at their "about" page, they state that they developer for all platforms, including the Xbox 360. So yeah...
Additionally, Patrick Klepek wouldn't have linked that article on his personal twitter if he didn't at least somewhat agree with it. So add him to the list of reasonable people who think this whole situation has been blown waaaaayyyy out of proportion.

I'm not saying people should be all "Hurray! My personal info has been stolen! Yippee!" However, the extent with which people are bitching, raging, freaking out, and generally going apeshit over this whole situation is beyond ridiculous.

You know what this remind me of? The way people freaked out and went hysterical over swine flu. I'm willing to bet that the odds of my personal info being used against me, or my credit card being used by the hackers is about as likely as me dying from swine flu. I'm so confident of that, that I've literally done nothing over this PSN issue, even though I had all my info entered into my PSN account, including my current bank card. I'm willing to not do anything about this, not react in any way whatsover, just to prove a point... The point being, that the odds of bad things coming from your personal info/credit card info being stolen from PSN is almost zero.

Everyone just needs to shut the fuck up. Get mad if/when your personal info or credit card info gets used maliciously, not before... At this point, the only "bad" thing that has happened to any of us, is that we've been without online play for a couple weeks, and/or we lost a couple hours calling in to cancel a credit card. That's it... And you know what? Big whoop!

From the way this reads to me, aren't these credit card details just referring to SOE MMO accounts. So this happened in addition to the whole PSN network fiasco and the information taken from that attack?

@SeriouslyNow:  I've seen people asking, on this site, that Sony compensate them for purchases they couldn't make because they canceled their credit cards. Or, again, the "THEY WAITED A WEEK KILL THEM ALL" stories that have been my main issue with the way people have been commenting, because they didn't wait to tell us anything.

Seriously, someone on joystiq said they were boycotting all of Sony's products due to poor security. Including TVs and home stereos.

Yeah but that's not them complaining about anything beyond what's been reported. Surely it's a valid consumer choice to boycott products brands too.

@MAST: You may have very good points, but if you do become a victim of ID theft you'd best be prepared to eat your hat.
