John Koller, Director of Hardware Marketing for Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA), has confirmed that PlayStation Network now has 14 million active user accounts globally.

Judging by the number of PlayStation 3's sold to date, the figure means an estimated 82 per cent of PS3 owners are now online, with a total of 272 million pieces of content downloaded since the service launched in November 2006.

“PlayStation Network has truly hit its stride with unique downloadable games and a video delivery service featuring movies, TV shows, and original programming that you can watch in HD with your PS3, or bring with you on your PSP, said Koller.

“And with 14 million active accounts and 273 million pieces of content downloaded, we know that you’re thirsting for this digital entertainment.”
