Let's Find Out How Many People Actually Use The PlayStation Network

For a while now, Sony have publicly measured the sign-up rate of the PlayStation Network by the number of individual accounts. Which looks good on paper, but it's not very realistic, is it?

So we're much happier now we have a real statement on the number of people making the most of the PlayStation Network. During Sony's quarterly earnings report, there was a little Q&A held between Sony executives and market analysts, during which Robert Wiesenthal - Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Sony America - revealed:

The story is too old to be commented.

lol sony just give us the numbers we know it nowhere near xbl but give us the numbers.

mastiffchild3306d ago

I don't think they can tbh. Our house has just one PSN account which is used by five people, for example, and usually two Live accounts used by 2 and 3 respectively(one for our kids and one for us)and then there's the homes with US/EU anmd Japanese accounts-there's no way of telling how many actual users either service has and I think 11 millin is prolly a fair bit low for PSN though I think Live will still have a good few more as well.

Natsu X FairyTail3306d ago (Edited 3306d ago )

nelson M always talking about other people's mothers = he Got sexually abused by his mom's and step dad @ an early age and feels disgusted and hate himself and got a big Hatred against everybody else moms.

all those sexual abuse lead him into being scared of womans in general so he seeks sexual pleasure over PSN and gets Involved in 3D orgy with "womans" on PSHOME!

want proof ?

JasonPC360PS3Wii3306d ago

So their saying that PSN is actually just about 7 million users and all of them are multi accounts of the droids here on N4G.

blackbeld3306d ago

Crying Bots want some attentions??? Is the 360 die on you alreay?? ''RROD'' You bots got nothing to play? Go buy another 360 heater!!! Stop trolling here on N4G!!!

LilMissGoddess3306d ago

are you really serious?? RROD...that was at launch, what about the crap with sony at there launch?? oh that's right you guys always seem to forget that one, all because the rate wasn't as high, right?? but that's funny how you sony droids seem to always say "oh, xbox has no games, RROD, the price of live" what does sony actually have?? last i checked, they didn't have as many games as microsoft. you sony idiots cry, b1tch, and complain about the games we get, what games do you have that have sold as much as microsoft??

last i knew, killzone 2 didn't push as many consoles as sony thought. and honestly, i don't think uncharted 2 is going to push as many consoles either because the 1st one didn't sell as much as they had hoped as well.

i know you guys will slam that disagree because the sony droids HATE the truth. funny thing is i don't think half of you sony droids own games, but anyways...enough wasting my time on you people and i'm going to get back to playing my GAME that i'm playing.

JasonPC360PS3Wii3306d ago (Edited 3306d ago )

Oh nevermind...:) Was just in a party with you playing games with other bots playing games. Some were playing other games, somthing the PS3 still can't do :D

Stop trolling...

(on topic)

"Not an exact statistic, sure, but it gives us a rough idea. There are 23 million PS3 consoles out there. If "close to half" of all PS3 users have signed up, that gives us around 11 million people actually signed up to the PSN. Which isn't far off our own amateur guesswork."

See ....truth.

Tee7soo3306d ago

i think 13 million is the right number
cause there are allot of people with multiple accounts
i my self have 8 accounts !

Natsu X FairyTail3306d ago


my friend have one in america , canada , japan

that's the 3 ones who are really important and most people will have 3 accounts based in one of those area

kewlkat0073306d ago

.....I only have a Japan/Us account. With the way Sony treat the EU, that account is not that special.

IaMs123306d ago

I personally do not have a PS3 so correct me if i am wrong but what i have noticed on my friends PS3 is when you make a user account it connect automatically to the internet. Now when i go over friends houses to play on Xbox in the past we would all have our own names and create new ones, which people still do on the PS3. My friend has multiple ones on his PS3 just for him and he also has a brother. Now question is it like XBL where you have to sign up for Silver/Gold?
