Today Sony Computer Entertainment announced that the PSN has reached 20 million registered accounts worldwide as of February 20, 2009. Although some will dismiss this and say most consumers have multiple accounts, this is still a huge milestone for Sony online who has been slowly trying to catch Microsoft in overall online entertainment.

It has reached this impressive milestone in just 2 years and 3 months since its initial launch. Since the PS3 launched, PlayStation Network has expanded its services to over 55 countries and regions around the globe, and has been an ever-evolving online system.

PlayStation Store offers more than 14,500 diverse pieces of digital content, ranging from exclusive online games, downloadable versions of PSP UMD titles, game demos and items, as well as more than 5,900 films and TV show episodes available through the PlayStation Video Store. To date, more than 380 million pieces of content have been downloaded, with total sales exceeding 180 million US dollars.

Home, which only launched 2 months ago, has exceeded 4 million users, and the promises of new game spaces and more ways to interact these numbers will surely bring more into the fold. In addition to Home, the number of users enjoying Life with PlayStation has now exceeded 2.6 million.

With the constant flow of new content coming to PSN, Home and Life with Playstation as well as Sony’s strides to improve your online experience through firmware updates it is a sure thing that these numbers will continually grow leaps and bounds in the future.
