After almost a full week of Sony's PlayStation Network being down, Patrick Seybold (SCEA's senior director of corporate communications) has come out and confirmed the worst: PSN was hacked and members' credit card information may have been compromised.
• Address (city, state, zip)
• Email address
• PlayStation Network/Qriocity password and login and handle/PSN online ID
So much for pretty much every other reason that wouldn't have made us freak out! Seybold stressed that credit card info has not been confirmed to be stolen, but when it comes to things like this, we're not really trying to wait until we see the first-class plane tickets on our Visa bill. More information can be found at the link above, or pretty much any gaming site on the Internet. If you need us, we'll be crying into our pillow. [via Kotaku]
