Soon we’ll all be saying goodbye to PSN.
And welcome, SEN, or Sony Entertainment Network. Spelled backwards its NES, by the way. The change will come this month, the 8th to be exact through an update.
“On February 8, 2012, your “PlayStation Network account” will be renamed a “Sony Entertainment Network account” or a “SEN account” in conjunction with Sony Computer Entertainment’s PlayStation 3 system software and PlayStation Vita system software updates,” Sony explained via an email to PSN users.
The firm also made clear that the change was name-oriented only: “For general purposes, this account change is a change in name only. Your username or password will not change, nor are we asking you to change them.
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.”
Meanwhile, PSN will still remain. So, it’s not a big shift. I guess SEN gives the network a more universal feel.
