PSN To Be Renamed Sony Entertainment Network

News PS Vita Playstation 3 Sony


If you have a Playstation Network account, then you might want to read this piece of news. From February 8, all Playstation Network accounts will be renamed to be part of the Sony Entertainment Network, according to an email posted on NeoGAF and confirmed by various news sources.

Sony confirmed in the email that the change is in name only. According to the email, the following passage reveals that user acounts require no change in username or password:

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 also explained why they are changing PSN accounts to Sony Entertainment Network accounts:

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.

Sony has been looking to integrate all of their offerings into one digital ecosystem. The Sony Entertainment Network is the hub for all of Sony’s digital distribution, including music, films, books, games and more. It is also cross-platform, serving already on other Sony products. Since the PSN hosted movie and gaming content, it was a matter of time before it is being integrated within Sony’s digital ecosystem.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
