It's a fantastic console with fantastic games, the fact PSN was compromised doesn't change that. The same thing will happen to Steam or XBLA at some point, it just happened to hit PSN first. We're moving into a digital age and it has issues, these services didn't exist five years ago. After saying that, I'm still very angry that it has and I'm in no way sucking at the teat of the big corporation. I'll gladly take my pound of flesh if it is due.
To be honest what put me off at the time was about 1/4 of the ones that were being sold on e-bay were being sold as "spares or repair"...
