Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) today announced that the number of registered accounts on PlayStation®Network worldwide have exceeded 20 million as of February 2009. They go on to say that registered accounts on PlayStation Network reached 5million in 1 year and 2 months, 10 million in 1 year and 8 months, and exceeded 20 million in only 2 years and 3 months from the service launch on November 11, 2006. The number of users connected to PlayStation Network is growing even more.

You thought that Xbox Live had a lot of users.  Sony clearly has a big base as well.  This includes the PS3 and PSP.

Interesting Facts:

- Launched in Japan on November 11, 2006.
- PS3: 21.3 million units as of December 2008, PSP: 50 million units as of January 2009.
- Launched in July 2008. As of February 2009, over 1,400 movies and 4,400 TV episodes are available for download.

    Yeah, no TV or movie downloads for Canadians though, nor a PlayTV like thing here like in the UK, what do we get that they don’t have?

    I doubt they have over 20 million different people, I went through 4 different PSN accounts until I found a PSN ID I was satisfied with…And WTF is up with Canada getting less features than US and UK.

    umm, at least a million of those will no doubt be people who’ve set up multiple region accounts.. Probably more considering how some people make one on EU, US, JP, HK.. etc. :/

    Oh well, looks good in the stats i guess.

  8. Over 21 million PS3s sold? Wow, that’s not bad at all.

    As for the multi-account owners. I’d say easily less than 5% of people have done that.
