PlayStation Store hits record revenues

October 2009 was the biggest month yet for the PlayStation Store, SCEA has announced, pulling in more revenue than in any previous month during the console’s now three-year history in the US, with downloads up 60% from last year. To celebrate the three year mark, Sony also revealed that over 650 million pieces of content have been downloaded from the store, a feat accomplished by more than 31 million registered PSN accounts.

Following price cuts and the introduction of the slimmer PS3, October’s hardware sales in the US showed 70% growth when compared to last year, Sony says, making the PS3 the only console to see “significant growth” year on year.
