I read xbox live is a copy of PSN and laughed. When did xbox live start getting hacked and shut down weekly. My credit card has never been stolen in the 11 years I have been on Xbox live. Security over everything.

And another 883,000 articles if you care to read

Meanwhile at Sony...

"As of May 2011, there were no verifiable reports of credit card fraud related to the outage. There were reports on the Internet that some PlayStation users experienced credit card fraud;[91][92][93] however, they were yet to be linked to the incident. Users who registered a credit card for use only with Sony also reported credit card fraud.[94] Sony claimed that the CSC codes requested by their services were not stored,[95] but hackers may have been able to decrypt or record credit card details while inside Sony's network.[91]

Sony stated in their letter to the subcommittee:

How many PlayStation Network account holders provided credit card information to Sony Computer Entertainment?

Globally, approximately 12.3 million account holders had credit card information on file on the PlayStation Network system. In the United States, approximately 5.6 million account holders had credit card information on file on the system. These numbers include active and expired credit cards.

As of today, the major credit card companies have not reported that they have seen any increase in the number of fraudulent credit card transactions as a result of the attack, and they have not reported to us any fraudulent transactions that they believe are a direct result of the intrusions described above.

On May 5, a letter from Sony Corporation of America CEO and President Sir Howard Stringer emphasized that there had been no evidence of credit card fraud and that a $1 million identity theft insurance policy would be available to PSN and Qriocity users:[30]

To date, there is no confirmed evidence any credit card or personal information has been misused, and we continue to monitor the situation closely. We are also moving ahead with plans to help protect our customers from identity theft around the world. A program for U.S. PlayStation Network and Qriocity customers that includes a $1 million identity theft insurance policy per user was launched earlier today and announcements for other regions will be coming soon."
