Sony: 'No truth' to story of credit card information sale


During the marathon late-night press conference this weekend, Sony cleared up plans for the reactivation of PSN and the nature of the attack that led to its being taken down. What it didn't clear up was the status of users' credit cards.

Responding to rumors that credit card numbers were offered for sale on forums -- and even presented to Sony in an attempt to get the company to buy it back -- SCEA PR director Patrick Seybold said that "to my knowledge there is no truth to this report of a list, or that Sony was offered an opportunity to purchase the list." It's not quite a categorical denial of credit card information being leaked -- but at least it's confirmation that nobody's trying to extort Sony with it.

Seybold reiterated what Kaz Hirai said Sunday morning: that nobody from Sony will contact you seeking any ID. Should someone do so, they are up to something nefarious.
