It looks like the PSN is doing pretty well, they have just recorded 600 000 registrations and 3.7 million downloads…
Not bad for something that has only been around for a couple of months. The site where I saw this are asking now whether it will take over Xbox Live! at this rate but I personally don’t see how they can make that assumption.
PS3 has sold about 2 million now so they are getting just over 1/4 conversion rate, where the Xbox 360 has sold between 9 and 10 million and have just registered 6 million people. That is 2/3 conversion. Way way higher. They also managed 25 million arcade downloads.
It is roundly agreed that the PS3 has a long way to go still with it’s online ability. Hopefully when @Home comes out towards the end of this year things will change. Until then they are going to lag behind terribly.
