Sony did not have a very good start to the year, when hackers (who’ve yet to be brought to task) took its PlayStation Network down, stealing as many as 70 million users’ private information. It’s all better now though, says Sony’s Howard Stringer
"This year, we at Sony have been flooded, we’ve been flattened, we’ve been hacked, we’ve been singed," Stringer said at a conference."But the summer of our discontent is behind us," Stringer said, saying PSN is "more secure and better than ever."
â€œI’m pleased to tell you that the PSN is more secure and better than ever,â€ he said. â€œWe 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.â€
Stringer also says the company’s taking a more holistic approach to its products and services, something that’s evidenced by the newly unveiled â€œSony Entertainment Networkâ€ that bundles its music, video and gaming services under one banner.
