In order to bring all of Sony’s digital entertainment closer together for its customers, Sony will be rebranding the PlayStation Network as the Sony Entertainment Network (or SEN) on February 8th. When this happens, all accounts on the PSN and PS Vita will be changed. However, users will not have to change their IDs or anything of the sort.
The Sony Entertainment Network encompasses not only the PlayStation Network, but also Sony’s music and video downloads as well. With this, Sony is now one step closer to allowing all users to access their digital media with one account. “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 explained in a statement last month.
Also last month, Sony stated that SEN will serve as the backbone as all of the company’s consumer entertainment devices. With a new president and CEO as well as a new network for consumers, change does seem to be in the air at Sony. It will be interesting to see what else is in store for the electronics juggernaut in the future.
