I got one at this price last time sainsbury's had 20% off or whatever, personally I'd pay a bit extra to get the additional HDD space as the 320gb models have also been discounted a lot recently. hot though.

Good price, but I boycotted all things Sony since their crazy suing spree.

It does depend what you want the PS3 for though, I also got one for £200 from Sainsburys before Christmas, as all use it for is gaming the only thing that has used the 160 Gb is 1 demo I have downloaded.

I'd avoid buying until the current 'situation' has been ironed out...

Wonder if the £20 off deal from Quidco will work with this?

For anyone who hasn't heard, Sony have just announced that personal data has been compromised. Including addresses, names, passwords and even credit card info.

It's a good job the data protection act was invented in the UK. You don't even need to be a lawyer to see the possible law suits which could be applied here.

Except hackers have your passwords, credit card details, addresses, email address, secret questions, the lot. That never happened on Live...

At this point in time, I can't see how anyone can justify recommending a PS3 now.

MAY have credit card details , nothing says they have its just a precaution.

Even if they did have them they don't have the security codes so couldn't do anything with it anyway.

Your text here

Here is a simplified BBC version

They could try getting into other online accounts as a lot of people use the same email address and password to log in

If I ever meet any so called hackers in the street of Manchester I will punch them in the face. Thanks for messing up my holiday.

Only issue I can see is people could be using same email+password combinations in multiple services, like itunes, google, online banking etc.

Assume they don't have your credit card details. Chances are they can just plug in the email addresses and password that they almost certainly do have into say Paypal or Amazon and chances are they're going to have access to it.

CAN I JUST SAY ONE THING:

LIVE WAS NEVER DOWN FOR 15 DAYS.

There was a period of about one week in Xmas 2008 where sign ins were a little slow (about 1 min) and some DLC wasnt added to the marketplace. That was all. You could still play online no probs. I think there was ONE DAY where you couldnt get online. ONE DAY. And some people could get online on that day, I could anyway.

They gave everyone a free arcade game too.

PSN fanboyz, even if you somehow think I'm lying, find ONE PIECE OF EVIDENCE that says live was down for 15 days.

The price of these will have to come down a lot more than this for them to shift any after today's news. About the worst publicity Sony could get. Very very serious situation which will drive many over to Xbox.
#22
I found a link for it that idiots are reading, from engadget. It was:

Downloading games might not work
COD 4 transactions might not work
Recovering Profiles might not work

NOTHING compared to psn being down for 6 days.

Or back to PC. Many people went for the PS3 as it was free online gaming, they won't want to start paying in a hurry.

That is true. A more accurate statement would have been: "Very serious situation which will drive many over to other gaming platforms." Although it's fair to assume that the bulk of those switching will go for another console as it's more of a like-for-like replacement then, and the Xbox is the nearest rival.

Security is such an important issue for consumer confidence and if Sony have been negligent in that area then it can't possibly end well for them. It's a PR disaster.

Not really because banks have a different way to log in. for example with barclays you need a special card reader and your pin code to log in....

Also I forgot to say that most places if you input your home address wrong regardless if the card details or correct it declines. But not all shops online use the same security. Happened to me on Dabs. I ordered something to my friends address but it got declined because the card wasn't registered to his address!!

Ebay has a new security as well, if you log into your account from another computer that you have never used, you would have to confirm its your account by inputting your secret question or a pin

Same for paypal etc...

No online service is ever hack proof.
If Apple or MS ever annoyed these kids some day it will be all the same.

aaah so that makes you safe as houses then. if you are so bothered about being hacked, don't put a credit card on file, dont use the same password twice, create an email address specifically for the account, dont put your true details in. you seem to forget, it's only an online access account. EVERYTHING, including banks are vulnerable to online attacks. you enjoy paying your subscription, and i'll enjoy my free PSN.

I don't care about half the ocean that died last year, halfway around the world. Nor do alot of people. However, alot of people care about their personal information, and I'd say the vast majority care more about that than the environment. Horrible as it sounds, some fish and birds dying in Lousiana does not affect me....

If I buy this is there anyway I can give them my bank details and play online?

I'm not sure that's a water tight analogy :)
How about: If I couldn't get into the local BP petrol station as the "pumps were down", then I would have driven to Shell - yeah.

Ha ha, love the Xbox Bum boys who stay all silent waiting for something like the PSN incident to crop up. What a bunch of numb nuts, PSN is FREE, get over it. Anything that has a password is in risk of being hacked eventually....fact. It's happened to the FBI and it's happened to banks. When someone got my card details and tried robbing cash from my account, the bank notified me. Very much like Sony have done. They have been hacked, they have let us know. I didn't change my bank because believe it or not I do believe it happens to all banks. Xbox boys beware....the boogie man is real!!!

Not the most reassuring argument. You could make a fake card and go anywhere that still does manual auths. Even without CVV or PIN you don't want people having this much info...
