I like it! And I dont see anything wrong with it.

metsgaming2117d ago (Edited 2117d ago )

yea at first its like psn rolls of the tonge better but it seems like i can get used to it pretty quickly. The fact that they are trying to unify everything is a plus and is a good reason to make a name change. I wonder if the store will get some changes soon?

Notice SEN backwards is NES lol

ShinMaster2117d ago

But I'm still unsure about dropping "PlayStation" from the name.

Why o why2117d ago

Psn rolls off the tongue better than sen.

dredgewalker2117d ago

@Why

This renaming might simply mean some sort of integration with other Sony products that are not related to the Playstation brand. Meaning other devices will also have access like Sony's phones, tablets and laptops.

ngecenk2117d ago

im pretty sure they'll connect all sony's product (including the non playstation branded) into this network. so its like you can use the sony's unlimited music in ps and walkman via 1 account.

either that or they just trying to kill the playstation brand.

kikizoo2117d ago

"I wonder if SEN will be as easy to hack as the PSN was."

like f.B.I, nasa, microsoft, etc probably...but with thousands of xfanboyz talking about it, exagerating it, etc...

by the way, PS3 was the more difficult logiciel/hardware to crack, fact.

pandaboy2117d ago

Not only does this attempt to unify sony products, but this re-branding always disassociates the Playstation online service with the hack last year. Quite clever actually.

PamPoovey2117d ago

I'm ok with this but I think I'm like Stewie

SEN in my languange mean DREAM :)

Gaming1012117d ago

"Notice SEN backwards is NES lol"
Great conspiracy thinking there 'metsgaming', or perhaps non-thinking would be a better word.

BTW "I'll check my SEN account" or "Check your SEN messages" sounds retarded. If there's anything Sony isn't good at its translation of what works in Japan and sounds good there, to what works in English-speaking countries and what works here.

Corepred42117d ago

I like it too. I used to hate asking people what their P-S-N name was. Now I can just ask what is SENetwork name is. IDK i think its easier, lol.

SilentNegotiator2117d ago

Well, at least you can say "SEN" like you're using a word and not an acronym.

If you tried that with "PSN", you'd get some ugly looks. lol

blumatt2117d ago

The reason why they're changing it to SEN is because they're going to be implementing it on various Sony devices and TVs as well as the PS Vita and PS3.

ChiVoLok02117d ago (Edited 2117d ago )

To me it just sounds like Sony is trying to compete with iTunes with SEN and what better way to make SEN popular then with PlayStation, right?

Sweet its named after My Fiance, now I love two Sen's!

kaveti66162117d ago

Stealth brag post.

jk

Congrats on your fiance.

SephirothX212117d ago

My Fiance is called Psn so I'm pretty pissed off right now!

JoeReno2117d ago

@ Sephiroth

+1 for the funny

SignifiedSix2117d ago (Edited 2117d ago )

Lol hilarious!
But they're probably doing this so they can connect every internet enabled product they have to one network. It would be a very good idea if they did!

Hey, can I add you on SEN?

xVeZx2117d ago

when is the 3rd version of you coming out?

jdfoster2117d ago

It's still going to be called psn...

"From this information, it appears that PlayStation Network will continue to be known as PSN, but that your login information will act as a global login for all SEN-related services. We've reached out to Sony for further clarification on what this means for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable and PlayStation Vita gamers in particular, and will update with further information as we receive it. "

dark-hollow2117d ago

now they should change Home to sen city.

dredgewalker2117d ago

Lol, that makes a lot of Sens :)

Liquid_Ocelot2117d ago

SENsational idea?
..Meh fcuk my life v_v

Ultraplayerxp2117d ago

Lets all give the psn a proper SENd off.

Serjikal_Strike2117d ago

What bout ps+ ?
are they gonna change it to se+ ?

Siesser2117d ago

I never thought of PS+ as "Playstation Store +," but rather, "Playstation +;" no real need to change...

Statix2117d ago

I'm pretty sure they could name it Bird Dung and you'd say the exact same thing.

MasterCornholio2117d ago (Edited 2117d ago )

Wow this guy really hates Sony maybe he is just a disgruntled employee who got fired by them. But by reading his comments you can tell that the subject isn't very smart so Sony probably had good reasons for making him. Very interesting I shall study him more thoroughly.

Sen sounds a lot like Zen which is something that a lot of Asians can relate too.

XperiaRay

dredgewalker2117d ago

@Master

Only the Japanese can relate to zen because they're the only country in Asia that practices it. We also consider Japan as our weird neighbor.

GribbleGrunger2117d ago (Edited 2117d ago )

Bird Dung? isn't that a Kinect game? yeah, i think the idea is to throw as much shit about that it eventually sticks

jrbeerman112117d ago

gribble,

id play bird dung, it could also be a game about a retired celtics player pooping off the boston garden aiming for pedestrians. now that would be a reason to get a kinect.

unknownhero11232117d ago

and that's what we will call you for now on bundi, bird dung.

jdfoster2116d ago

....

But it will still be known as PSN on ps3. It's just something that unifies everything under Sony.

killerhog2117d ago

Psn is a lot catchier, but sen isn't so bad, though Psn sounded more pertinent to the brand.

salinidus2117d ago

this is one step to try and fix an ailing company i hope it helps

MagicAccent2117d ago

I am to lazy to copy and paste the adress by myself. So I'm doing to disagree with you.

kaveti66162117d ago

Is this because they're creating some kind of cohesive network across multiple Sony platforms and don't want to have only Playstation in the name?

colonel1792117d ago

The only problem I have with this transition, is that now music unlimited, video unlimited, qriocity and SEN will have the same logo

GribbleGrunger2117d ago (Edited 2117d ago )

it's ironic that the reason you have a problem with it is the very reason for the name change. i still gave you a bubble though because i can see you didn't mean anything nasty by it. not that it seems to make any difference. i'm always giving people bubbles but i'm yet to see them increase

gigreen2117d ago

Maybe a hint that they will drop the name "PlayStation" like recent rumors are suggesting.

Angrymorgan2117d ago

No, they just named playstatio vita

Tainted Gene2117d ago (Edited 2117d ago )

I have a feeling they "may" change the name from playstation on their next console.

Would be funny if in 2014 I check back on this post and be like I KNEW IT.... or maybe not.

Sevir2117d ago

They will however change the moniker of the next PS home console! It wont be PS4 as "4" is bad luck for Alot of asian cultures. It'll likely be named similarly to how they named the Vita! if you notic there isn't a final fantasy 4 in Japan but only in the States ts much lile how we dont have a floor numbered 13 on elevators in the states!

MEsoJD2117d ago

Nice!!! Lets bask in Sen!!!

mac_sparrow2117d ago

Only thing I see wrong with it is it also stands for Special Educational Needs.

But then maybe I think that because I work in a school, most won't notice.

southernbanana2117d ago

This is not really a reply to GrieverSoul but.....
I just don't understand it. When I read articles regarding Microsoft heading this direction with their system people said "they are losing their focus on gaming" When Sony takes a page out of the competitions book people say they love it??? I love both systems and am glad to see this change of direction for Sony's online service. I just don't understand peoples way of thinking.

HebrewHammer2117d ago

I wonder what will become of PS+ though... WIll that now be SEN+? lol

mac_sparrow2116d ago

It will likely stay, as it's Playstation Plus not Playstation Network Plus

Find out on the 8th though

he will make heavier changes on april 1st thats when he takes over

Tonester9252117d ago

I hope Google Chrome is coming as well.

dredgewalker2117d ago

I would be very happy with Chrome on the PS3 or even Opera.

Shikoro2117d ago

Opera or Chrome, whichever it is...

Hazmat132117d ago

dude the amount of porn i can look at with chrome is off the charts!!!
