PSN Crosses 5 Million Accounts

Sony celebrates with mysterious bits of English in their press release.

 

PlayStation Home Network has crossed the 5 million account mark in Japan, and Sony decided to celebrate by for some reason putting random English in their press release.

"Let's celebrate 5 million PSN Accounts in Japan!"

Okay!

Sony also shared a few stats for the PlayStation Store. Currently, PLayStation Store sees 1 million unique accesses every week. Total domestic download content has has topped the 110 million mark.

As a show of appreciation for reaching the five million account figure, Sony will be holding a present campaign for the general public, PlayStation Store, and PlayStation Home users.

From June 3 through June 30, five visitors to the PlayStation.com official site will be selected to win a model KDL-46LX900 3D Bravia set. To take part in the campaign, visitors will need to fill out a short quiz, accessible at the campaign site.

From June 3 through June 16, those who purchase ¥500 or more in content from PlayStation Store will be entered into a raffle to win some sweet goods. The following will be on offer in quantities of 100 units each:

  • torne DVR kit -- PS3
  • Wireless Head Set -- PS3
  • BD Remote Controller -- PS3
  • Accessory Pack (4GB) -- PSP
  • 1seg Tuner -- PSP

More details on this campaign will come at a campaign site on June 3.

Finally, something for Home users. From June 3 through June 16, Sony will be giving all Home users a limited edition tote bag avatar item. In addition, from June 3 through June 30, select virtual items will be discounted by 50%. Further details on this campaign will come at a campaign site on June 3.

[NOTE: I originally miswrote "Home" in place of "Network." The five million figure is for the number of PlayStation Network accounts -- not Home accounts.]
