Chances of your card being used are tiny. The theft got 75Million PSN account. Even if only 10% have cards on them, thats still 7.5m cards to use. And even more to the point, the kind of person that did this is more likely doing it for fun than for stealing peoples money.
I doubt that the person did it for fun, the user information of 75 Million will fetch a high price to spammers even if none of the accounts had credit card information. If the hacker sells the credit card information to multiple different groups than the chances of your credit/debit card being used are greatly increased.
