PlayStation data theft hits 70m gamers

Sorry, someone's stolen your information, Sony tells 77 million PlayStation Network users.

    * Sony warns personal information stolen
    * Credit details could be in criminal hands
    * More: Technology news and reviews

IF you're one of the 77 million people signed up to the PlayStation Network, criminals could already know your name, your address and perhaps even your credit card number.

"We believe that an unauthorized person has obtained the following information that you provided: name, address (city, state, zip), country, email address, birth-date, PlayStation Network/Qriocity password and login, and handle/PSN online ID," the alert said.

I am glad I don't own one. I was planning on buying one in the next few months, but I will wait even longer now.

We have a PS2 but I never got the chance to hook it up to the net since we use the wii more than the ps2. Lucky me. :)
