The online outage that rocked, dismantled, and shamed Sony’s PlayStation Network for six weeks last spring did not come at an overly grim cost, it seems.
According to comments made by Sony CEO Howard Stringer, PSN has added a whopping 3 million new accounts since the service came back online.
“I’m pleased to tell you that the PSN is more secure and better than ever,” Stringer said. “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.”
There you have it, PSN has survived, and is actually growing.
