The PlayStation 3 is not the only one to have recently turned three, the PlayStation Network also shares the same birthday, marking it’s third year of service PlayStation users. Starting on the PS3 the network expanded onto the PSP, and, in some respects, onto the PC. With numerous firmware updates, and revamps of the PlayStation Store, the network has greatly improved over the course of it’s life, with even more updates coming later today. The free service was previously known to have over 24 million users, now, to mark the service’s coming of age, SCEA has announced how many users the service currently has.
At the moment, there are more than 31 million registered PlayStation Network accounts worldwide, making it one of the largest online networks in the world. To date, more than 650 million pieces of content have been downloaded worldwide from PlayStation Store, with last October marking the highest month of revenue on record. The PlayStation Network’s number’s are only set to grow as the PS3’s and PSP’s sales continue to grow, as well as Sony’s possible plans to bring the PlayStation Network to other Sony products.
