David Reeves, the President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) has admitted that online purchases and user subscriptions to it's PlayStation Network service have exceeded the company's expectations.
Speaking to trade website MCV UK, Reeves stated, “One thing that has surprised us is in the Network purchases and the general level of interest that has been shown around the Network business.”
“We’ve gone from zero to almost double-digit millions in terms of what people have purchased in euros.”
Enthused, Reeves also declared that roughly 40 per cent of PS3 owners in Europe have signed up for the online service, with around 33 million downloads recorded since launch.
“We’ve now got about two million PSN registrations”, he said. “
That’s about 40 per cent of users. We’ve also had around 33 million downloads, which is a huge number. And we’ve got 25 stores up and running across the PAL territories.”
