That is complete garbage for real! What ever happened to the days of console gaming. There is all this extra stuff that is really not necessary! I agree that it is just another way for Sony to take your money. Once a transaction is easier to conduct, then people are more likely to shop and make impulsive purchases. Also, if this comes to the US (MOST LIKELY), I would say that it would be about 3 to 6 months before credit card numbers are stolen.
