PlayStation Network Binned in Favour of Sony Entertainment Network

By Gary Cutlack on at

Sony's tweaking the terms and conditions of its online gaming network, revealing a complete change of name in the process. Instead of PlayStation Network, you'll soon be signing in to the Sony Entertainment Network to take care of your gaming business.

The changes come into force from February 7th. Nothing else will change about the way PlayStations go on the internet, it's just a new name. According to a Sony spokesman: "Changing the name 'PlayStation Network account' to 'Sony Entertainment Network account' helps clarify the unity between PSN and other Sony Entertainment Network services." [Sony via Joystiq]
