90 million PSN accounts worldwide - Sony

Vita sparks surge in account numbers

Sony has confirmed that there are over 90 million PlayStation Network accounts worldwide.


That figures came from the manager of SCEA Developer Relations Ted Regulski, speaking at GDC in San Francisco this week.

That huge sum accounts for all PSN accounts created across PS3, PSP and more recently, Vita, but didn't break down the number by platform or region. Nor did he say how many of those are actually active accounts (Many PSN users have multiple accounts registered to different regions for overseas PS Store access).

Speaking on what PSN offers developers, Regulski went on to boast that Sony is "the only major console publisher to allow self-publishing".

"There are others but they have publishing rules that aren't much fun ... and there are no weird limits you have to hit in order for us to pay you," he added.

He also stated that PSN offers devs better royalty rates than Nintendo and Microsoft, but refrained from disclosing figures.
