Goodbye PlayStation Network, Hello Sony Entertainment Network!
When your company gets hacked, insulted and belittled by the gaming industry as being inferior, you tend to make some drastic changes to the way everything’s managed. So, coming soon to most PlayStation devices, the Sony Entertainment Network!
Although this change is in name-only, and won’t affect your current PlayStation Network Accounts, and surprisingly, is completely absent from the PlayStation Portable, who’s still using the original PlayStation Network service.
“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 in a statement.
“The PlayStation Network brand will still be intact following the firmware update expected tonight. The only change is in the name of the account, from ‘PSN account’ to ‘SEN account,’ a change that will unify things with a single login for use across multiple SEN services and connected devices. Following the firmware update, PS3 users will still see the PSN logo upon sign-in, experience the PlayStation Store, etc.” a Sony representative told CNET earlier today in response to the somewhat confusing change to the network.
So, that basically means that in the future, hackers will only have to hack one network to steal all of our personal information!
