Sony: We Have More than 3 Million New Customers Since PSN HackBy Alex Co | September 2, 2011 | News | 1 comment | Share
The PSN hacking incident that happened earlier in the year could be one of the worst – if not the worst – thing that ever happened to Sony and its PlayStation brand.
It looks like the electronics giant has managed to turn it all around and then some. Speaking at an IFA press conference, Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer went on the offensive and lauded the company’s PlayStation Network in exceeding sales expectations.
I'm pleased to tell you that the PSN is more secure and better than ever. We are aggressively expanding its content. We have more than 3 million new customers since the network came back online, and sales are exceeding what we had before the cyberattacks.
This year, we at Sony have been flooded, we've been flattened, we've been hacked, we've been singed, but the summer of our discontent is behind us.Stringer
This is certainly great news for Sony. Hopefully, other platforms won’t have to experience anything like it ever again.
Are you one of the people who didn’t leave even when the PSN was down for nearly a month?
