PSN cancellations “a very small percent” – Hirai

Despite the PR disaster that was the PSN crisis of April and May 2011, only a tiny fraction of PS3 owners have cancelled their PSN accounts, Sony exec Kaz Hirai has revealed.

In an interview with Wall Street Journal (as found by CVG), the PlayStation boss revealed that only “a very small percentage” of people phoned up to cancel accounts. That percentage would probably grow a fair bit if it included PS3 trade-ins and such during the outage too.

Hirai went on to reiterate: “We have done everything possible and reasonable to make sure that a system is secure from attack.”

The effects of the outage won’t be clear for a long time yet.
