PlayStation Network Accounts Will Merge with Sony Entertainment Network (SEN) on February 7
Sony highlighted what it feels are the most important additions and changes to the above mentioned agreements, and they include:
- A description of our “What’s New” section, which provides topical information about our services and advertisements.
- Information about pre-ordering content.
- The name of your "PlayStation Network account" is changing to a "Sony Entertainment Network account."
Tweaks aside, Sony insists this is merely a rebranding effort resulting in a change in name only. If you own a PSN account and a PlayStation 3 console or a Vita handheld, your username and password will not change, nor is Sony encouraging you to change them. Curiously enough, none of this effects the PlayStation Portable (PSP).
"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.' This helps us get closer to our goal of establishing a global comprehensive network platform of services across games, movies, music and more, all accessible from one convenient account," Sony said.
