Perhaps part of Sony’s strategy for integrating their services, or maybe to distance itself from the bad reputation gained due to the continuous string of PSN break-ins – whatever may be the reasons, Sony has announced that they will be rebranding their online gaming & digital delivery service, the PlayStation Network or PSN.
Sony makes it clear that this will be only a name change & the existing usernames & passwords will not be affected. A firmware update in the near future will ensure that the Sony Entertainment Network branding will be applied to the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita – but not the PlayStation Portable.
Here’s the full email listing:
