Sony marketing man John Koller has said that there are 14 million active PSN accounts.
PSN launched in November along with PS3 in US and Japan. Xbox Live launched on November 2002 on the first Xbox, and then in it's current guise on 360 in November 2005. That's quite a head start.
"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 a pleased Koller.
"And with 14 million active accounts and 273 million pieces of content downloaded, we know that you're thirsting for this digital entertainment," he added. We think PSN accounts being completely free has a lot to do with the high sigh-up rate.
It's good news on the hardware front too. "There are nearly 17 million PS3 systems around the world, and in the United States, PS3 hardware sales are up nearly 100 percent from where we were at this time last year," gloated Koller in his PS Blog post, which pays tribute to PS3's second birthday yesterday. Happy birthday!
