What Country Dominates The PSN?

The PlayStation Network is Sony's global online gaming service. Countries from around the world can access the PSN and game. But which country has the most accounts? Is it Japan?

Nope!

In light of the recent PSN breach, here is a breakdown of the number of PSN accounts per country:

- USA: 31,140,307

- UK: 9,296,317

- Japan: 7,427,038

- France: 4,701,424

- Canada: 3,524,227

- Germany: 3,233,800

- Spain: 2,982,592 accounts

More countries have PSN accounts; however, website Famitsu did not supply complete global data. There is a grand total of 77 million accounts worldwide. According to Sony, ten million credit cards linked to these accounts may have been compromised.

    Where is Australia? We defs have more users than spain

      spain has more than double australia's population so i don't think australia would just by that number alone.

      Honestly id be surprised if we came close, i don't even know if we have 1 million ps3's sold yet.

      Considering we only passed 1.1 million PS3s sold in Australia in Feburary, I doubt that. Unless everybody signed up for two or three accounts I guess :P

      since Spain almost has double the population of aus im not sure, but these numbers prob aren't right because i have three accounts aus, jap & US to get

      SMH article today said 1.56m or so Australian accounts were affected. That number came from Sony Australia. So I guess that's the total figure.

      1.5 Million Users... all that info supposedly came from this image...

    Doh, read "Countries from around the world can access the PSN and game." as in its back online :(

      Yeah... you weren't the only one :-P haha

    I dont even think 1 million Playstation 3s were sold in Australia:/

    @Marcus: Australia has about 1.5 million... which is less than Spain. :P

    @Marcus, Considering Spain has just under 3 million people on PSN, that would mean more than 10% of Australians are on PSN. I think not. We have a tiny population.

    Another website has the complete list. Australia has about 1.6 million accounts or so. (or was it 1.3?)

    I wish someone with some time would do a % of population calculation for each country. Seems like 10% is the general rule for the few that I checked.
