US PSN downloads near 8 million in January

In a statement made following the release of NPD sales data yesterday, Sony has claimed that 7.9 million downloads were made from PlayStation Network in January, up from 6.6 million in December.

There are now 2.9 million registered PSN users in North America, the company said, and more than 52 million downloads have been made from the service in total.

Jack Tretton, CEO of SCEA, commented of the results: "Coming off a great holiday sales season we see strong momentum behind PS3 in 2008, and feel confident about the year ahead... we have Blu-ray emerging as the de facto high def standard, the developer community is hitting their stride, consumers are recognizing the tremendous value and innovative services such as PlayStation Home are all in the works, so this is definitely shaping up to be a breakthrough year for us."
