PS3 and PSP Userbase Climbs Over 61m

The Playstation 3 and PSP have accumulated an install base of 61.3 million.

That was the claim according to Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer, who addressed a packed audience at the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas.

Moments later in Stringer’s keynote speech, he introduced Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Kaz Hirai, who in turn proceeded to flaunt more large numbers that the company was responsible for.

One million dollars’ worth of virtual goods has been sold through PlayStaion Home, Hirai announced. The service, which reached an open beta stage back in December, has now been downloaded to 3.4 million PS3s. As reported earlier, Electronic Arts are now embarking on their individual virtual space for the service.

Also reported here earlier, Hirai explained that Media Molecule’s LittleBigPlanet had sold over 1.3 million copies, with Sony logging 300,000 user-generated levels, and that the PlayStation Network now holds over 17 million unique accounts.
