PlayStation Home sees 'record traffic' following PSN return

"We were just dancing in the streets" when we saw the numbers, Sony says

PSN has been seeing all time traffic highs since the return of the PlayStation Network earlier this month.

PlayStation Home director Jack Buser told Gamasutra: "We're having record traffic in Home. The week we restored the service, we hit a new record in terms of weekly unique users.

"We were watching the numbers and we were just so excited. We were just dancing in the streets. The numbers are through the roof. I think it speaks to the loyalty of our user base, and to the power of these kinds of platforms."

According to Gama, Sony has added over 100 free virtual items in Home since the PSN service was restored, as well as a virtual Sony E3 booth for gamers to check out news from the show.

At its E3 conference on Tuesday morning, Sony said that activity on the PlayStation Network was back up to 90 percent of what it had been before the recent security breach.

PlayStation boss Kaz Hirai said this week that Sony may never catch the PSN hackers or learn exactly what they stole.
