Sony's PSN Regional Beakdown, By The Numbers

Joystiq: "Wondering how at risk your country is percentage-wise for theft identity due to PlayStation Network's recent breach? This handy charted tweeted by 8-4's Mark MacDonald should help break down just that for you."

The story is too old to be commented.

I might be picky here but Great Britain....no Northern Ireland as a separate category on the list.....so no one in NI have PSN

Joni-Ice2727d ago (Edited 2727d ago )

The UKraine only has 5,898.

You are already brainwashed, albeit not by Sony.

llMurcielagoll2726d ago

And yet Xbox LIVE doesn't have a Saudi Arabia as a locale in their network which make life harder on everyone there lol but that's not the case

651,000 accounts awesomeness!!! I didn't know that detail!

Next step is we get better internet providers! OMG OMG STC WOW 5mbps!! pfft

WhitePolish2726d ago

Saudi Arabia 650.000. they need ps3 for something else . :(

Winter47th2726d ago (Edited 2726d ago )

Well I tried my friend's Fiber Optics from STC called Verve, it's 100mbps for the same price of a DSL line, granted it's rarer than hookers on a Friday afternoon but the ping's ridiculously good and by time it'll be available to every house in the country..except Ra's Tannoora or someshit.

As for Xbox Live it's a joke, you pay full price only to find 60% of the services blocked you from using them even if they're free (Netflix, Music, COD Map Packs, M-Rated arcade games, Games on Demand)

Greece 210,000 thats not a lot at all... to many PC gamers here...

You know what the Ukraine is? It's a sitting duck, a road apple, Newman. The Ukraine is weak. It's feeble. I think it's time to put the hurt on the Ukraine.

im in northern ireland and yes we do have psn

iamnsuperman2727d ago

Some person commented and said NI is in Great Britain. I think they are kinda confused with The UK but never mind

Menech2727d ago

Am surprised the UK has more PSN accounts then Japan

WhittO2727d ago

I think its more likely they classes NI just in Ireland, and Great Britain is on it's own...since they prob would've just called it United Kingdom if it included NI...

Wow GB has second largest online PSN accounts in the world?!

I thought Japan would've been onto that haha.

The_KELRaTH2726d ago

Yeah that was a wow for me too.

Thought it would have been USA, Japan, Germany, GB - we should demand our own game network region or English speaking only region so we don't have to listen to lots of foreign languages all the time.

Works great on the PC with English speaking only game servers.

"Wondering how at risk your country is percentage-wise for theft identity due to PlayStation Network's recent breach?"

Considering that the CC info was encrypted? 0%

humbleopinion2726d ago (Edited 2726d ago )

Identity theft is not credit cart theft. It's stealing someone's personal details (email address, account, passwords, etc) and pretending to be him/her.

Considering that all these details were not encrypted? Actual figure is probably going to be higher than 0%.

Trey_4_life2727d ago

It seems its, united states, united kingdom and japan that has the most CC accounts on PSN.

B00M2727d ago (Edited 2727d ago )

Lots affected. And news4geeks, just shut the fuck up fool.

Mcrmarcher2726d ago (Edited 2726d ago )

The United Kingdom consists of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.GB consits of England, Scotland and Wales. Just incase anyone is confused.

Bahrain has over 26k users?!
HOLY CRAP!

AhmadCentral2727d ago

Bahrain has quite a big gaming market tbh. Its not massive but its big.

SonyNGP2727d ago

Being a Bahraini, I'm fully aware of that. But it is rather surprising because Bahrain doesn't even have a Playstation Store :/

Killzone3___2727d ago (Edited 2727d ago )

Bahrain is an island , only 1 million in it more then half are indians and oter people from out side the country , so that's alot :P ... the gamers in there are really good , don't believe me ? .. come play against me :) ..

anyway , when they will turn on the psn , my brothers really bored , they come ask me everyday if the network is on or not .. the helicopters are shooting everyday and there is checkpoints every where that kidnap people and kill them or beat them and put them in prison so we can't go outside ,we want something to make the time go faster...

we live like felesteen , israel attack houses everday , same thing happening in here .. people{rulers} are really sick , loving money makes them blind..

militant072727d ago

You can take few off from the U.S.A list total, Myself and everyone I know also have a yank account, tied to an imaginary address in Beverly Hills, 90210 was the only zip code we didnt have to look up hehe.

Oh...I think I also live above or in a resteraunt nr Tokyo.

BrianG2727d ago

Haha, I live somewhere in Europe and Japan as well, not sure really where.

But for real I live in the US. PA to be exact.

And for those with multiple accounts, I expect it, since everyone I know and myself have more than 1, but that goes for any service.

starcb262727d ago

I live in 8756 i love making fake accounts drive, houston, tx, 77054.

phinch2727d ago

I'm from England and i have an American account also, didnt make a japan one as i did have a clue what i as doing

The_KELRaTH2726d ago

TheRag2727d ago

1 american in beverly hills as well (maybe we're neighbors, who knows? xD)
1 japanese, 1 british (i live with the prime minister lol)
and 1 in israel, ofc..

PhoenixDevil2727d ago

Yh same here got some random account for America. Interesting idea, if america comes back online before the UK does could I sign into my American and download the new firmware update early ?

Probably not worth it as there prob wont be too much time inbetween the reactivation of both

agentace2727d ago

I live at 123 fake street(from the simpsons) new york

The_Con-Sept2726d ago

Am I the only person with 6 master accounts? And with each having a lot of sub accounts? I made a lot of them. I made one for Australia, UK, Japan, Ireland, Mexico, and my main one. I wanted to see if certain places got content early but then back in 07-08 they restricted people from buying stuff on PSN out of their own country.

With all my sub accounts... I have like 20 some odd accounts. I used to write my own journalism and sent it to a few hundred people back in the day. TCSR was the name of it.
