How the hell doesnt know how to clear their system -_-

There are several people hence why we get reports all the time about people buying a system for their kids and it has Porn and other stuff on it they di not intend to leave on it.

Lots of people have never wiped or sold their systems.

So yeah, I bet TONS of people.

Even those that think they would have an idea or could 'figure it out', would probably like to make sure... after all these days it just holds many people's personal information and credit card info.

I bet there are times when someone sold a system, only to find credit card charges not too long afterwards because they forgot to clear it.

Very well said, Credit Card data is a hue issue and for some it could have movies your rented or streamed, as well as shopping patterns, music, and more. You never know what could be of use to someone with less than nest intentions.

if i had a brought a console with someone's credit card details you damn right i would rinse all of the money in that account. i'm awesome like that.

That an identity theft would be a huge issue as well. What about developers with Alpha and Beta of games still on them.
