PlayStation Home downloaded 19m times

But Sony quiet on figure for active users.

Sony has announced that the PlayStation Home client has been downloaded 19 million times since launch.

According to Home director Jack Buser, the average Home session lasts for 70 minutes. He reckons that's down to people playing the games you can access within the service, of which there are now around 230.

Virtual items are also proving popular, said Buser. Last year the number of items available grew by 110 per cent.

The 19 million figure refers to instances of Home being downloaded and booted up at least once. When asked how many active users the service has, Buser declined to comment - saying that figure is available, but only to developers who have signed a non-disclosure agreement.

However, he did say that as an indication, 1.6 million users played the racing game Sodium within six weeks of release, in North America alone.
