Are you used to saying PlayStation Network or PSN when referring to Sony’s PS3 online service? If so, you might want to stop using that, as Sony has just announced that they’re changing PSN to “SEN” or Sony Entertainment Network.
The company has renamed the service to create a “comprehensive network platform” of their services and not just across games. I guess this means that Sony’s games, music, movies and other media will be tied into this SEN account, no?
From an email by Sony sent to their subscribers:
This transition is based on Sony’s goal to enhance its unique digital entertainment offering. As a series of these activities Sony started last September, PlayStation Network will be aligned with Sony Entertainment Network
Besides the name change, PSN users don’t need to worry about usernames or passwords being reset or whatnot. Also, this name-change will take effect on February 8 for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita via software (read: firmware) updates.
You know what, this isn’t really a bad idea. Now, I can use one username and account to access every media I buy or use in Sony’s catalog. That should be convenient, no?
