The astonishing PlayStaion Network crisis that dominated the headlines earlier this year doesn’t seem to have dented the public appetite for PSN.
Gamasutra reports that Sony CEO Howard Stringer told an audience at the IFA electronics show that since the restoration of the service in March an additional 3m users have registered.
"I'm pleased to tell you that the PSN is more secure and better than ever," he insisted.
"We are aggressively expanding its content. We have more than 3m 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."
