Sony said today during GDC that PlayStation Network contains 90 million registered accounts across all regions. The figure was provided by Ted Regulski, manager of SCEA developer relations, who also said the numbers were pulled from PS3, PSP and PS Vita customers. He said Sony was “the only major console publisher to allow self-publishing” and that the others out there “have publishing rules that aren’t much fun, and there are no weird limits you have to hit in order for us to pay you.” He also claimed Sony provided better royalty rates to developers than Microsoft or Nintendo but failed to provide any set of figures to back up the statement. Thanks, Develop.
