Sony says this week that, following one of the worst security breaches in recent memory for any company, that sales via its online gaming service are exceeding numbers from before the attack occurred.
As part of a Sony conference at the IFA electronics show, Sony CEO Howard Stringer said that the PlayStation Network has recovered and is now doing better than ever, with 3 million new customers since coming back online earlier this year.
"I'm pleased to tell you that the PSN is more secure and better than ever," said Stringer. "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," he continued. "But the summer of our discontent is behind us. "The past is a prologue to future possibility."
Sony brought the PlayStation Network back online in June after a major security breach forced the company to shut everything down.
