More than 50m PS3s and PSPs now sold

PSN registration hits 9.8 million.

Sony has revealed that more than 50 million PS3 consoles and PSP handhelds have now been sold.

The total figure is comprised of more than 12 million PS3s and more than 37 million PSPs (which does only add up to 49 million, yes, but they did say "more than").

The company also said over 9.8 million people now have PlayStation Network accounts. More than 170 million pieces of content have been downloaded from the service.

The figures were announced in a presentation at a corporate strategy meeting.

Sony also unveiled plans to launch the PS3 movie download service in the US this summer.
