Sony Transfers PSN Account Info to SNEA, New Network Division

TGH writes: We’ve just gotten word that SCEA has created a new division: Sony Network Entertainment America. This new branch will assumedly be handling all network related functions, including all account info. Just a heads up, they’re transfering your account info, wallet, and billing information assuming you agree to the new TOS Version 9.

Does it add any hints to cross chat? Or is that still just a Sony fans pipedream?

OneSneakyMofo2373d ago (Edited 2373d ago )

I'm sure you have plenty of pipedreams of your own.

Edit:

And no, I don't think there's anything about cross game chat, but who cares? I'd prefer voice messages over cross game chat anyway.

Edit 2:

NeoBasch, I agree. I just checked my email and it says: From: ****************@playstation.i nnovyx.net
So this is probably some kind of scam. Don't click the link inside the email until Sony confirms this.

Elimin82373d ago (Edited 2373d ago )

got the email too. I think it's legit. Who knows. You could be right.

IMChampion2373d ago

All emails from PlayStation Network have that address. Check for yourself.

However, I never clicked anything though because the email looks kind of unofficial. Sony never sends anything out like that.

Inception2373d ago (Edited 2373d ago )

I got the email and like Imchampion said i don't click any link on that email too. Maybe an April Mop but maybe a scam. I'm waiting for 1 april and just go to PSN for proving if this legit or not.

NeoBasch2373d ago (Edited 2373d ago )

Just as a warning, I wouldn't click any of the links in those emails. This might be part of a scam by hackers. I've never seen Sony send an email like this. Nor have I ever seen Sony ask to ensure credentials. All I'm saying is don't click it. Don't type any confidential information until given further notice.

If a user agreement comes on April 1st, then you'll receive the new update through the System Update on your PS3. Please be careful.

Besides, it's on April 1st people. I feel I shouldn't need to point out the obvious.

PS: If you want to help other users, report the email as spam and wait for official word. Thank you.

MadMax2373d ago

Didnt think of April fools, good call. Got the email too and agree, if its official everyone will get it through the update. No one should click on this!

Zashule2372d ago

Remeber OtherOS Removal update?
Landed on April 1st.
I wouldn't underestimate Sony.

ToastyMcNibbles2373d ago (Edited 2373d ago )

I think Sony fans are too busy playing games than to be concerned with cross chat.

Gen0ne2373d ago

Nope. I want cross game chat.

ToastyMcNibbles2373d ago (Edited 2373d ago )

Hey I'm all for cross game chat as well as I feel it is a great communication feature but I'm not gonna sit and wait for it. If it comes it comes if not oh well I'll continue to play my games.

Dark_king2373d ago

@MEGATRON D well you can't have it.Games come first and the memory cross game chat would use,is better used for actually games.Now voice messages would be great.

Rynx2373d ago

@shadydevil

"Sony fans pipedream?"

LOL, last I checked I was dreaming about

1)seeing footage on The Agent and Starhawk
2)wanting to have The Last Guardian in my hands right now
3)Hearing that The Gateaway and Eight Days are still in the works.

Seriously it's becoming more and more apparent that the only people "craving" for X Game Chat are 360 fanboys who happen to own a PS3 (for casual use) and can't cope without the feature on SONY's system.

dragunrising2373d ago

I think you got it mostly right. However, take out the 360 fanboy part, you hurt my feelings (sarcasm). I game almost equally across both platforms and wouldn't mind if cross game chat came to PS3. I accept that both online services are different and exceptional in their own way. I'm not "craving" for x game chat on PS3, however a useful feature is a useful feature.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi2373d ago

Interesting. Wonder what changes will be made to the service or if any new features will be added.

TronEOL2373d ago

I really wonder exactly what this means. New features in the making? Servers being handled by SNEA just for the PSStore to increase online play in other games (or opposite)?

Or maybe it's as basic as it looks and there is no need to look into it.

Anyways, I guess we'll just wait to find out more of everything at E3.

ShadyDevil2373d ago

Easier said than done. I want my NGP official price NOW, Release DATE NOW. God Of war NOW you get it. :)

Punch-o2373d ago

Network related functions hmmmmm.

blackburn52373d ago (Edited 2373d ago )

@ ShadyDevil .Could we for the love of cake STOP the cross game chat talk please. Cross game chat sounds like the rudest thing I have ever heard. Why in the hell would I want my friend to talk to me while I am trying to work as a team in KZ3, survive a fire fight in UC2 or destroy Zeus in GOW3? Is everyone so desperate for friends or conversation? God you people are like broken records.

@ Stealthdawg cross game chat is NOT the most important thing we need right now.There are several things that are more important then cross game chat e.g.a better browser that need to be implemented. Stop acting like it is some crucial game changing element that we cannot do without.

AdmiralSnake2373d ago (Edited 2373d ago )

The Mass majority of the community wants it. The problem is Sony won't address whether it's coming or not which is annoying. They need to let us know whether or not it's coming out.

All because you don't care for it doesn't mean other gamers shouldn't care either.

AdmiralSnake2373d ago (Edited 2373d ago )

So you speak for everyone all of the sudden ?

I never acted like anything I said the majority of the PSN community wants Cross game chat. No those are several things that you find important to the PSN NOT EVERYBODY.

I never said it was the most important I said the majority of the community wants it. Stop trying to speak for everyone because you're only one individual.

I guess Sony shouldn't listen to what the majority of the Community wants. Don't try and call anybody out because those same people who sounded like broken records got us some good implements/features on the PSN.

Also end of the day it is about playing GAMES AND IMPROVING our gameplay experience. Cross game chat is more important then improving the web browser in my opinion.

@Wildarmsjecht

ROFL ? I'm talking about the Official Playstation Network Forum.

In no way am I referring to N4G this would actually be the last website I would ever refer to anything Playstation related for various reasons. Go on there and see most of the new post and new articles or any update regarding a firmware people asking when is Cross game chat coming.

Hilarious how gamers on N4G wanna shut people down for voicing their opinion for improving their gameplay experience.

How about Sony dumbass just tell us if it's coming or not that way nobody would bring it up.

Wildarmsjecht2373d ago

Mass Majority? Of the Millions of PS3 owners out there, You know for a fact that millions that equate to over 50% of them want Cross Game Chat? How is that?

N4G and the internet account for a very small amount of PS3 owners out there, even if people would like to assume as such.

Maybe theres tons onf N4G that want it, but to say the majority of them wants it is far-fetched and unfounded.

dead_eye2373d ago

If the majority wanted cross game chat Sony would have sorted something out by now. I'd guess not enough people have asked for it so Sony ain't doing it. Like Blackburn5 said it seems rude to me. I have no interest talking to someone who's not in the same lobby as me. If they wanna talk they can send a message and I'll reply when I'm not playing.
