Andrew House, president and CEO of SCEE, announced today at GamesCom that Sony has currently sold 138 million PlayStation 2 units and 52.9 million PSP units worldwide. Speaking at Sony’s press conference, House went on to explain that 23.7 million PlayStation 3 units have been sold worldwide, with SCEE accounting for 10 million of that figure.

That PlayStation Network has some 27 million registrants who have used the download service more than 560 million times. In total, Sony has generated $280 million USD in revenue from the PlayStation Store. It also appears the PSN is getting a makeover on September 1.

The PlayStation Home has a user base of more than 7 million, and Sony plans to continue to develop and add to the social interactive service. We can expect to see new Home Spaces and more content in the coming weeks and months.

It appears PAL users will get a download movie support service for the PSN. Starting in November, PS3 and PSP owners can start taking advantage of the video service. You will be able to access other content while you are downloading the videos. The service will launch initially in the U.K., France, Germany and Spain.
