So, have you been paying attention? Shit's going down with the PSN. That is to say, the PlayStation Network is down. Whether you've been bitching non-stop about not being able to play Call of Duty online or bragging about your Xbox Live Gold membership or just haven't figured out the Netflix work around, you've probably already heard that you won't be playing games online for an undisclosed period of time.
Did you know that there are 75 million registered PSN accounts in North America. That doesn't include the Japanese and European PSN accounts you have for all those amazing demos you want either! What do you think someone could do with the names and addresses tied to all those accounts.
Maybe they could start a new nation-wide junk mail campaign. Maybe such an individual is looking to promote their Killzone 3 frag movie montage on Youtube. Looking for a couple million e-mails to blast your Twitter account to? The individuals who intruded upon the PlayStation Network have just the e-mail database you're looking for.
It's not all fun and games though... at least no online games. Sony sent out an e-mail today to PSN users elaborating on the nature of the problem:
Yeesh! Luckily for me I've linked someone else's credit card with my PSN account.
