just got this email from sony:

Dear Psyko_2000,

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. (Note, this change will not be applied to the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system at this time.)

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. In accordance with this transition, some necessary naming changes will be made to the TOS and Privacy Policy.

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.

Thank you for your continued loyalty and support during this transition.

Sincerely,
The Sony Entertainment Network Team

I'm glad they did 18 hours of PSN maintenance to facilitate this change.

I'm glad that the EU PSN still seems to be undergoing maintenance. You can buy stuff, you just can't download it.

I hope they actually do more than a name change - actually merge accounts across different platforms.

I wonder if it's something to do with the PSN hack and they thought a name change would do some good in improving their image?

They can change the name, I don't give a flying poop, but what does their reason even mean? PSN wasn't already a global enitity?

I am confused.

As much as I don't care for the xbox brand, I really like the fact that they use an actual word like "Live" instead of all these letters and whatnot.
