I use my PS3 mainly as a Blu-Ray player and for NetFlix access. So, the outage itself has not had a great impact on me.

Honestly, I can't remember if I ever input my credit card data or not. However, I am VERY disturbed that Sony took a full week to announce credit card data may have been exposed.
