Sony changing the PlayStation Network accounts to Sony Entertainment Network accounts from Feb 7th

As part of their Spring Cleaning, Sony has announced that they will be changing the name of the PlayStation Network (PSN) accounts to Sony Entertainment Network (SEN) accounts. Set to begin from February 7th, it has been said that this change is taking place so that users will have easier access (one log-in account) to all of Sony’s services, thus improving their ecosystem.

While Sony may claim this change was solely made for easier access to other services, this change will obviously be seen by most as an attempt to leave behind the troubled “PlayStation Network” moniker as it has been hacked, plagued with viruses, and much more over the last year or so. But considering this is being touted as a “cosmetic-only” change, the same old problems might rear their heads soon enough and with the SEN accounts being connected to many services we could see the Japan-based Corporation land itself in major trouble sometime in the near future if their security isn’t up to scratch.
