This isn't an information stealing attack, it's an information overload attack, so the PSN can't handle anything. It's load is over burdened, so nothing can work. All personal info is safe.

I was just clarifying because many people dont know what a DDoS attack is. (I didn't until I looked it up earlier). DDoS literally means Denial of Service btw guys. PSN was overloaded, so it's service is denied to everyone trying to access it.

Commonly used to be called, and what I thought was a better name in regards to helping people know what it meant, "flooding"....

I have all the maddens from 11-25... plus I had other games like uncharted etc ... had like 10 games total they said they give me $10 for all them that's a $1 a game I laughed in dudes face and walked out.
fifa 14 @ ebgames here in calgary. i think maybe because demand was high for that game it seems lately. but 25 bucks on a trade in is very solid. very solid.

i had a similar experience when i wanted to trade in a lot of old games, i had 14 games in total and he offered 37 dollars. i told him i'd sooner set it on fire before i did that.

I have no idea what that means, I just know I don't want to get madden Tuesday and the network be down.

EDIT: I seen the explanation after posting my reply. Still the issue for me is the network being down. I haven't used my card on PSN since the hack that downed the network for a month.

Re: Digital or Disk?

I was against digital for a long time, my last two purchases have been digital and I haven't regretted it but I just don't know for sure about what I want for madden 15
