Sony: 3 Million New Customers Since PSN Downtime

The PSN downtime must have cost Sony millions of dollars, but they’ve proven once and for all that it hasn’t affected their ability to provide a quality service. At a press conference covered by CNET, Howard Stringer went out of his way to stress just how well the PlayStation is doing.

“I’m pleased to tell you that the PSN is more secure and better than ever,” Stringer said at a news conference at the IFA electronics show here. “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, if nothing else, is the ultimate punishment for those that decided it was a good idea to hack the PSN on the customers behalf. They made that decision and now Sony are not only unaffected by the hack, but they’re doing better because of it. That’ll show them eh?
