It's always great to hear about new records within the gaming industry, and today I have some news to share about Sony and their recent new PSN record. This week, Sony revealed that September 2014 had shown to be the biggest month for the PlayStation Network ever since it's debut on the PlayStation 3.
One of the biggest drivers of the success for the new PSN record was of course Destiny, a new game that has managed to stay on the top selling charts for a considerably long time. Firstly, Destiny has already sold PlayStation Network sales records for many different categories by itself, including most pre-orders, best week one sales and best day one sales.
When you factor in the huge hype for Destiny and the growing player base on the PlayStation 4, you end up with over 125 million hours worth of gameplay in just one month - this is exactly what happened in September 2014, and it is what made the PlayStation Network look very impressive this half.
Sony managed to increase 90% of PSN store revenue in September as well which is pretty impressive - however this was most likely due to the huge Destiny release.
Have you got a PlayStation 4 yet? What are your thoughts on the PSN experience? If you have owned both an Xbox and a PlayStation in the past, what do you prefer - the Xbox Games Store or the PS3 and PS4 PlayStation Network?
