CES 2009: Sony fires off PSN stats, MTV adds content to video service


We here at Joystiq absolutely revel in statistics and can think of nothing better than smothering ourselves in warm, moist data. Did you know that approximately 54% of all posts written on our site contain frequently unnecessary statistics? And did you know that the only thing we like more than reporting on numbers is to make them up on the spot? Oh well. Here are some real ones, straight from Sony's CES 2009 keynote:
  • 17 million! The number of PlayStation Network accounts ... accounted for. 17 million is a really popular number for online networking, apparently.
  • 330 million! Numbering the pieces of digital content that have been downloaded through PSN.
  • 2 million! That's how many users the Life with PlayStation service has. An updated version will be coming this Spring.
  • 2,000 hours! The answer to the question, "How much video content is MTV Networks adding to Sony's video delivery service?" The deal, which manifests in February, includes shows such as "MTV's The City, Comedy Central's Emmy and Peabody-Award winning South Park, Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants and VH1's Rock of Love Bus with Bret Michaels."
  • 4! The number of bullet points which encapsulate all that information! This one doesn't count.
