Just a few days after Sony admitted that hackers may have obtained credit card information from PlayStation network users, some are claiming to have up to 2.2 million card numbers for sale.PC World spoke to a few data security analysts that said even though Sony claims credit card data was encrypted, it’s still possible that the hackers were able to decrypt it by now.

The Guardian says some PSN users are reporting fraud on their credit cards, including charges for flights and other large purchases.

Sony’s second in command, Kazuo Hirai, is holding a press conference tomorrow to explain the PSN outage, and hopefully address the concerns over stolen credit cards.
