Take A Look At The Amount Of PSN Accounts At Stake Worldwide

Mark McDonald, the executive director at 8-4, a blog dealing in all things Japanese and videogame, has revealed a handout Sony dispatched to journalists at their recent conference detailing their response to the Playstation Network outage. Brendan has since provided a thorough overview of that, but the handout McDonald revealed on Twitter offers a comprehensive breakdown of the number of PSN accounts at risk in every country, worldwide.

As you can see, the USA has the highest amount of accounts at risk from attack, with 31, 140, 307 PSN subscribers accounted for. Next is our shores, with 9, 296, 317 accounts in Great Britain, shortly followed by the 7, 427, 038 in Sony's native Japan. The numbers are vast, and with the threat of attack still looming large - Sony has yet to announce victory - the repercussions could be dire. [Joystiq]

The problem with these figures is that they mask the real truth. I like many others have multiple regional accounts (I have 4 in different regions) so that we can access content that is only released in that region.
However it is less likely that US users would have GB accounts simply because we normally get similar albeit less content.

So there are over 127 million people in Japan but only 7.4 million PSN accounts, is that right?

Guess they like PSN almost as much as Xbox 360.
