PSN accounts become 'Sony Entertainment Network accounts' next week
"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," explained Sony in an email to customers this weekend.
Other than the name change, Sony says that this will be the only thing that has changed. They also say that you will keep your username and password, and do not to alter it in any way. "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," Sony stated.
"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."
This is also not a complete re-brand, so you don't have to worry. The PSN name will stay. No need to sound the alarm this time.
