WOW 30%.That's actually pretty friggin significant.

Percentages are only good in context.

30% can be 10 customers or 10,000. It don't mean nothing until you know what quantities you are speaking off.

Do you know where you are? This is N4G.

It doesn't matter how right you are here, saying anything negative will get you down-voted to hell.

Well we're obviously talking numbers in the millions here, so why even bring that up?

How are they working this out though? Is it 30% more usage or is it 30% more usage from single accounts? It wouldn't be that significant if it was the first because we now have a lot more consoles on the market. So, is it being used more or are there more people using it?
darthv72  +   1087d ago
i see what you are saying
It does imply that there has been an increase by 30% of purchases. Meaning that it may not be an increase in users but the amount of content the users are buying.

And the figures would have to be compared to a set from roughly the same amount of time prior. Like over the course of a month you have 100 purchases (could be from 1 person or 100) and then the next month you now see 130 purchases. They dont say if that is the same 1 or 100 people or if now we have 130 people buying.

That last number could mean not only was there an increase in purchases but ALSO an increase in number of users who made those purchases.
GribbleGrunger  +   1087d ago
yeah, fair enough. That's a decent increase then.

Its 30% more purchases not 30% more people using the network.

That Ubisoft 50% off sale they got going on is pretty nice. I just got Beyond Good and Evil HD for $5 and I'll probably pick up From Dust and rayman 3 hd later this week. Also I finally downloaded Kat and Emmet Graves and bought the Heavenly Sword/Wipeout map which was really cheap at $1.49 or something. I got a question I see they have packs of things for PSASBR called Minions. What exactly are they and whats their purpose?

The Indian PSN store is cheap too. I pre ordered Crysis 3 for Just $46.09 (2499 INR) from PSN India but when I checked US store i Found it for $59.99. I have 2 accounts US & Indian.

Next steps:

1. Make it available on all smart devices
2. Allows the PS3 to be woken remotely and download the content once it has been bought

Already being worked on. A few of the posts about the new store on the Playstation Blog in the comments section ask about those same things. Remote Downloading plus an actual app and more browser support is in the works.

That's because it's easier to navigate and less laggy, buggy and generally obnoxious to use than the new PSN Store overhaul.
JW1080  +   1087d ago
That's good news. Sony should have done this awhile ago. But better late than never. More options the better.
