Sony has gained over 3 million new PSN users since hack

Sony Corp. CEO Sir Howard Stringer has confirmed that the electronics giant has raked in an additional three million PlayStation Network accounts since the service was restored following the cyber attacks earlier this year.

CNET reports that Stringer dropped the news during a presentation at the IFA electronics show in Berlin yesterday, where he asserted his belief that PSN is in far better shape now than it was prior to the security breach.

"I’m pleased to tell you that the PSN is more secure and better than ever," he commented.

"We are aggressively expanding its content. We have more than three million new customers since the network came back online, and sales are exceeding what we had before the cyber attacks.”

Stringer added: “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. The past is a prologue to future possibility."

Sony has a number of new devices in the pipeline, including the PlayStation Vita, 3D headset and PlayStation-certified Tablets.
