Ok, I don't think this topic might have been brought up, since it seems most of the threads seem to be concerned with whether a PC rig will play the game, whether PS3 users were screwed etc. etc. But one of the topics I wanted to touch on briefly, was account security, since I happen to be a bit paranoid thanks to the "wonders" of internet ID theft.
I had originally planned on playing this game on the PC, but then once I played the benchmark, I realized that I won't be able to, and begrudgingly, I went and bought a PS3, since I figured it doesn't matter whether I get the PC or PS3 version, the graphics will still look wonderful, and hopefully, the connection will be relatively solid. Of course, now I have to wait till March of next year, but enough exposition, lets go to my concern.
I've been wondering what people's opinion might be on the safety of your own personal account?
With Malware and Spyware creeping up and installing itself into just about ANY PC with a windows OS, even to the point where you can't even type "BOO" on a search engine anymore. With this of course, also bringing in unwanted password phishers/sniffers, would it really be considered wise to play this game on a PC anyway? Would it be safer to play on the PS3 instead? I mean, at least to my knowledge, its not like farmers and RMT target accounts from console users, or do they? I would figure that, since the OS for the PS3 is obviously very different, and probably not as "spread out" as windows is on just about every PC... it wouldn't necessarily be an obvious target for account hacking, or would it? What are your thoughts?
