After the whole mess with PSN going down on April 20th, Sony confirmed that personal information was stolen, but was unsure about credit card information, saying no signs pointed to them being taken. While Sony is still uncertain if anything was taken, they do want to put to rest a pesky little rumor about supposed PSN credit card information on the market. According to PlayStation Blog, there seems to be “no truth” in that specific case of credit card sale. They also said they have not received any form of offer to repurchase the credit card information. That being said, just because this case was false doesn’t mean no card information was stolen. Sony still encourages PSN users to monitor their bank statements closely to look for any suspicious spending.
PlayStation Network is scheduled to go partly back up this week, although it won’t be until later this month that the PlayStation store will relaunch. Sony will be giving PSN users free software along with 30 free days of PSN+.
