    PSN ID Totals?

    Looking at a different thread it sent me looking at a site which is censored on here, so I won't mention it.
    On that site it had almost 300K PSN ID's accounted for. Seeing that millions of PS3's have been sold, it got me thinking how many actual PSN IDs there are. 300K seems so little.

    There is something like 70 million people on PSN, now a lot of those are duplicate accounts but it is a rough idea.

    Well I have well over 20 accounts of my own and I can guarantee that there a thousands upon thousands of others that have the same so the actual number will be a lot lower than the 70 million that was stated by Sony.....

    I guess I need to change what I meant. LOL. What I mean is how many trophy accounts are there? 300K seems a little light for the number of people who are playing games, unless there are millions of people who don't ever log into PSN ever.

    In order for somebody's ID to show up on the site, they need to sync their account with the site. Not everybody logs onto this site, as there are a few choices out there for trophy cards if people desire one, and I am quite sure that a large number (perhaps even the majority) don't even bother with trophies, much less their cards.

    So the 300k is just the people who have chosen that site as their preference for their trophy card or online record needs. In a perfect world, Sony would have their own site with everybody's statistics on it for everybody to see and compare and get accurate representation on how they fair with the rest of the community, but alas, that isn't the case - so we rely on sites like this one to give us some loose representation of some statistical data on where we stand.

    I guess it's about exactly 70 million, but rather 50 or 40 million...

    Most are probably retarded quick scope accounts or something like that. Although tons of people do play on different accounts.

    Honestly for that site (assuming you're talking about the one I'm thinking of) I think all that needs to be done is a valid PSN ID needs to be typed into a search or whatever, and that person's trophy profile becomes a part of the site's data, my fiancee's and my profiles were already part of the site the 1st time either of us ever went to it, and while it may have interesting statistics, I prefer this site for most everything.
    As for the number of PSN accounts, I would estimate it being in the 400-500 K range, as ppl have probably replaced YLOD systems by buying another, or have multiple systems, the same as people have made multiple accounts only belonging to 1 person (as seen in this thread some people have 20 accounts!) Also I'm sure there is a number of people not represented, due to never logging in to PSN and therefore sony never tracking their ID.

    As we have all pointed out, ya, there are millions upon millions of PS3 owners and PSN Accounts. I have 2, but I never really use the second one... Also, what would one need 20 accounts for???
