Before getting in to the gargantuan news that is the ‘NGP‘ during their PlayStation Meeting that just took place, Sony took a moment to recognise the PlayStation Network, and how important it has become to the PlayStation brand. They started by announcing that they “have exceeded over 69 million PSN accounts as of January 25th,” and went on to say that “more than 80% of PS3 consoles are connected to the internet.”
The latter I can believe, but the total number of PSN accounts is a little mind boggling. It was only a couple of weeks ago that Sony themselves announced that number to be at 60 million, but now it’s over 69? Sounds very strange to me, but then again, I don’t think anyone really knows exactly how those numbers are calculated.
