I never bothered to register at PSN (good thing I didn't, since their servers got hacked last year). But maybe I should give it a try and download Borderlands. Here's hoping lightning doesn't strike twice in the same place.
BTW, would it do any good if I delete the account after the purchase, or will they still retain my info in their database either way?
I wouldn't bother deleting the profile, it would just prove to be more trouble than it's worth. And the whole hacking thing, while serious, was blown way out of proportion. Master Card and Visa both went on record saying that they had no records of anything related to identity theft occurring because of the PSN hacks. People just freaked out because they didn't know what was stolen. Basic profile information like names, e-mail, and passwords, which were rendered useless when Sony shut the PSN down, and are even more useless now.
Short version: The PSN is safe and last year's hack wasn't as big a deal as a lot of stupid, paranoid people made it out to be.Borderlands 2:
Sanctuary took off thanks to Lilith phasewalking the entire city
while it was in the air. Stole a Hyperior requisitions beacon to get a Fast Travel node, so I could get back up there. Now I'm running side missions.
Roland: "Good, you're not dead."
Lilith: "That's his way of saying 'Wow, you're such a badass, great to see you're still alive!'"
