Sony don't throw their numbers around as often as the Xbox Live team do, but does that make PlayStation Network numbers any less exciting? Goodness no. So let's proceed.
US numbers only... : (
when home comes out there will be 10 mill + users
Actually there will be 2 mln. users with 5 account each. It is known that everyone makes multiple accounts also on other continents.
Price cut brought you out of your hole huh dude?
good one mighty! q:
The Mart each person only gets ONE MAIN ACCOUNT. They OBVIOUSLY have common sense considering their a billion dollar corporation and not some jealous NOOB XBOT on a website(that NEVER gets ANYTHING he says right for that matter). THEY DONT COUNT SUB ACCOUNTS that made under your one real account.
yes PSN is a very big network too and worldwide.... very close to Xbox Live... and it will pass it before not too long.... PSN is getting everything XBL has and more. There are at least 7-8.5 million online worldwide now. Get over crazy XBOT. Sony even announced there were 5.5 million accounts on PSN back at least years E3 LMAO. THEY DONT COUNT SUB ACCOUNTS under the one main account lol.
the odd thing you gotta think about though.. is how many of those 2.8 million are actually european people that made US accounts just to download demos earlier. cause i know i have US,UK, and JP accounts so i wont miss out on anything. they should be more specific by giving us the # of individual US consoles that have connected online.
im pretty sure this isn't a number of how many accounts per console is currently online, so its one account per console,
that means currently 2,8 million PS3 are online in US.
thats, like Chris Eden stated, 50% of all american PS3 owners.
LOL i just read it.. this isnt US accounts.. its all accounts world wide.
"Eden said there are currently 2.8 million registered PSN users, and, since Christmas, 100,000 more have joined every week. "
stupid kotaku is changing the original quotes.
cause he also gives a list of the top downloaded things in the UK .
"The list differs slightly for the UK: Tekken 5, Warhawk, Fl0w, Loco Roco, Mortal Kombat 2, Super Rubadub, Calling All Cars, Gripshift, Lemmings, and Super Stardust"
i think they only go by the main account not the sub accounts
my US account is a main account. Maybe they do it another way like how some websites would not allow people outside of the US to watch that video the other day even if a proxy was used.
That has a psn account and i would believe thats somewhat similar to xbox live..
PSN the most boring online exsperice,"EVER".... ......... I generally had more fun out of the Dreamarena.
true that. everytime i go online it reminds me of resident evil outbreak. where theres no communication at all other than pre set expressions. especially in UT3. nobody ever has mics.
* According to Sony's Chris Eden, there are currently 2.8 million registered PSN users in the US (which he also says, interestingly, is 50% of all PS3 owners),
Luke, where in the world is that stat coming from? I think you may be misinterpreting this statement:
"The service has seen 46 million downloads total, with 50 percent of PS3 owners going online, 82 percent downloading at least one piece of content, and 65 percent downloading something the first day they connect. As for the audience makeup, 92 percent are male, and 79 percent are between 18 and 34."
That's where he got his "50% of PS3 owners" statistic from.
ther are over 4 million ps3's sold in the us, so that number seems about right. as for the uk and the other's its over 2 milion also. i dont if you guys remember but sony europe ceo said in a interview that there were more than 2 mill PSN user's overe seas. so that brings the total to around 5 million user's, with overe 10 million ps3's sold world wide........IN FACT these numbers are higher than when xbox live started out in 2002, it took microsoft 5 years to get to 10 million live member's. and sony is at 5 million user's in only a year and a half, in another year they will reach 10 million. thats 3 YEARS faster than xbox live........so i dont know why people think these numbers are bad. and for the xbot's that think this is world wide, its NOT, its for the US only.
I dont see a problem with the psn network i have a full list of friends and have to delete some every now and again when i want to add new ppl about 70% of the ppl i play online with have mics so thats not a problem either.
