"This year, we at Sony have been flooded, we've been flattened, we've been hacked, we've been singed," said Sony's CEO Howard Stringer at a recent press conference. "But the summer of our discontent is behind us."

The comments come via a longer speech Stringer made at the IFA electronics show. The speech seemed targeted to addressing Sony's recent PSN woes, and the way the online network has recovered since the hacking attacks of earlier this year.

"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."

What's been your experience with PlayStation Network since the service came back up earlier this summer? Do you still trust Sony with your personal info? Or are you one of those 3 million new users Stringer is talking about?
