Sony Ditches PSN, Welcomes SEN


Its official Sony will be ditching the the name Playstation Network and will be switching to something else, official name inside.......

Playstation Network will officially become a thing of the past, from February 8th PSN will become "SEN" or "Sony Entertainment Network." This name change is Sony’s way of getting closer to their goal of:
“ establishing a global comprehensive network platform of services across games, movies, music and more, all accessible from one convenient account.”
The name change will not require you to alter your PSN ID etc. however it will require you to agree new Terms of Service. Sony have been sending emails to all there PSN users, the content of the email is below:

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

Personally we think that ditching the "Playstation" name might hold some issues.

Let us know what you think of the name change in the comments below!
