PSN Recovers: "The Summer Of Our Discontent Is Behind Us"
Some forgive, others forget. Either way, the PlayStation Network debacle earlier this year hasn't halted the PSN in its tracks.
In good news today, Sony has revealed that Network sales are "currently exceeding those from before the attack."
During a Sony conference at the IFA electronics show and as cited by CNet, Sony CEO Howard Stringer told the audience that the PSN has recovered and is doing better than ever before. In fact, there have been 3 million new customers since the Network returned to life in early June. Said Stringer:
"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. The past is a prologue to future possibility."
Things are looking up for Sony, despite a few dire predictions from analysts, as most of the loyal have clearly remained loyal and new customers continue to arrive. Plus, given the fall lineup and the latest PS3 price drop, good times are a comin'.
