PS Vita provides new boost to user account numbers

There are about ninety million PlayStation Network accounts across all regions, Sony announced today at GDC.

Ted Regulski, manager of SCEA Developer Relations, said the PSN numbers were accumilated from PS3, PSP and PS Vita customers.

In a bullish start to his GDC talk, Regulski said Sony was “the only major console publisher to allow self-publishing”.

“There are others but they have publishing rules that aren’t much fun,” he said, “and there are no weird limits you have to hit in order for us to pay you”.

He also went on to claim that PSN offers a better royalty rate than what Nintendo and Microsoft offers, though didn’t reveal any numbers so the claim cannot be verified.
