    I have another question. Is having the year I was born as part of my online ID a security risk?

    I actually created a PSN account a while ago when I registered my PlayStation 2 slim and part of the user ID had my birth year as part of the ID. But with things as they are, I wasn't sure whether to keep that account, or create a new one with a slightly different online ID (without the birthdate digits), or just stick to the one I already have, now I've got it. It's annoying that you can't change it, like you can with gamertags on the Xbox 360, or delete the account entirely.

    So, what should I do? Keep the one I've got, or create a new one when the console arrives? Obviously, I've got no content or trophies to lose, so now would be the best time. What do people think? For what it's worth, I won't be keeping any card details on the service. I'll live off vouchers.

    Wow - what a mansion!
