Number of PlayStation Network users 2014-2019 First launched in November 2006, PlayStation Network (PSN) is a digital entertainment service associated with Sony’s PlayStation series of consoles. It has since been expanded to run on smartphones, tablets, and HD televisions. As of March 2019, the network had approximately 94 million active users, a significant increase from the 50 million users five years earlier.
PSN perks

PSN has a dedicated store where gamers can buy the latest releases, as well as a subscription service, PlayStation Plus, which allows users to not only play online with their friends, but also gain access to exclusive content and early releases. PlayStation Plus had an estimated 36.3 million users at the end of 2018, illustrating that gamers are willing to pay a little bit extra to connect with the wider gaming world. Moreover, those who are willing to pay for PlayStation Plus are handsomely rewarded in the form of free games - subscribers were offered a cumulative total of 1,508.74 U.S. dollars' worth of free video games in 2018.  

King of the consoles?

Sony’s latest console, the PlayStation 4, was released back in late-2013, but is still going strong six years later. As of 2019, the console was slowly moving towards 100 million units sold worldwide, an impressive increase on the 10 million units sold within the first year. The best-selling game of all time on the PS4 is Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V – the hotly anticipated latest release in the GTA series sold over 18 million units worldwide by the end of 2018. With Microsoft’s Xbox One sales only standing at 42.2 million units, it appears that Sony is staking its claim as the king of the consoles.
