IMO it's just a bunch of FUD designed to try and scare customers into being angry at Sony.

Now, if you used the same username and password for your PSN account as all your other accounts, which is stupid, then you might be in trouble. Otherwise, even though it sucks, someone having your name and address isn't going to hurt you.

I'll still had my bank issue a new card, because that's just smart regardless, but I'm not really worried about anything bad happening to me from this incident at all.

Now that Homeland Security is investigating this, as well as the FBI and Sony, I'm even more hopeful that these thieves get brought to justice.
They have admitted at least 10M CC#s were compromised:

And the idea that not having the security code is proof of them not having the info is also kind of silly. Most are 3 or 4 digits long and could be figured out in very little time via brute force by anyone with access to a CC payment service. Not to mention there are sites that don't ask for the security code, should make anyone who stored their real CC# with PSN get a new card from their CC company.
