PSN user-count climbs up to 60 million

Posted By | On 06th, Jan. 2011

Sony recently revealed at their CES 2011 keynote conference that 60 million users have now joined their online gaming service, PlayStation Network. Sony confirmed at last year’s CES that PSN had hit the 38 million mark, and a few months later in June, they confirmed that number has climbed up to 50 million. That’s some steady growth.

An hour later, Microsoft announced at their conference that not only had their Xbox 360 console sold over 50 million units and 8 million Kinects in just 2 months, they also announced that 30 million people had now signed up to Xbox Live.

Well, PSN is free after all, and it more or less gives the same experience as XBL. Plus, there’s two systems with PSN on them, so you have to give Sony that benefit. Still, they do have double the amount of people on their network as compared to Microsoft.

Online services should not be paid- lesson learnt. Microsoft, we’re looking at you.
