PSN =/= PS3
41.6m = number of connected consoles

Nitrowolf22785d ago (Edited 2784d ago )

didn't take to long for one of these to pop up.
I'm just gonna wait for more information on this from Sony, the slide should have been enough if people read it right, but who knows.

And they should also realize that PSN=/=PS3

which also needs clarifaction, whether that 70 million means just for PS3 or all platforms that has PSN access.

also i'm a bit dumb here, but what exactly do they mean by 1.7 PSN account per PS3 and 2.1 for every console connected online? I mean if the PS3 has a PSN account doesn't that mean its connected online then??

also what do they mean by 1.7 per PS3?? i see that like someone has 1 account and then they have an incomplete account or something??? ISn't it suppose to be a whole number???

They are probably dividing the number of PSN-accounts with the number of ps3's out there to get an average :)

gamingdroid2784d ago

It's just to get an average.

With that said, I thought it would be higher considering the multiple accounts?

I personally have 4 accounts on 1 ps3. Main, japan, Europe, and one for my brother.

Tinasumsum2784d ago

41.6 million "sold" with 80% of the 41.6 million connected and 70 million accounts made.

I hope people realize that the PSP also uses a PSN account so not every PSN account out there are only applicable to the PS3.

OllieBoy2785d ago

I have 2.8 PSN accounts on my PS3.

MasFlowKiller2784d ago (Edited 2784d ago )

My PS3 has two accounts.
One For Me and One For My Brother.
Its great that we can both have accounts on the same console, both play online, no need to have one account to go online because all PSN accounts can play online free

on my 360, because live is not attached to a console, the account with live is the only account that has access to go online, I hate that if my brother want to play online on his 360 account he can only do so if he buys Live. And theres no way he is playing in my account, lol

skottey2784d ago

get a family plan for $99 a year and have up to 4 accounts cheapskate

PirateThom2784d ago

Yeah, spend more money for the same thing.

skottey2784d ago

Pirate Tom-

PSN and Live are hardly the same thing. Live is much more refined and worth paying for. The old saying goes, you get what you pay for.

Trroy2784d ago (Edited 2784d ago )

...or maybe some people own PSPs and not PS3s? There are 65M PSPs in consumer hands.

Article == totally uninformed.
