Sony details impressive PSN stats
Like any good RPG worth its salt, we have some stats and figures for you concerning the use of the PlayStation Network.
Firstly, there are apparently around 2.8 million users on the PSN, with somewhere in the region of 100,000 new punters joining every week (that’s one every six seconds, fact fans). Roughly half of all PS3 owners have gone online at one time or another and there has been about 46 million downloads.
Impressive stuff. But wait, there’s more! Of the people going online, 92% of them are male, 79% have seen between 18 and 34 winters, 82% of the users have downloaded something, while 65% download something on their very first online venture.
The fact that the entire PSN is free, has built in wireless as well as wired connectivity, and doesn’t shaft non-premium members like the Xbox Live Silver membership, probably counts towards all this activity.
The most popular games? Well FlOw and Tekken 5 are number 1 in the US and UK respectively, while other games like the excellent Warhawk, the lethal Mortal Kombat 2, and Calling all Cars are also popular.
With Home being released sometime this year, the numbers will probably jump again.
