Time to get a joke writer...

Changing PSN to SEN is so that you can login to multiple Sony services using one login ID and password. It makes perfect sense. Sony will be able to integrate all their services into one big service. You'll have Sony TVs (and hopefully other brands as well), laptops, tablets, etc. where you can log in to your SEN account and have access to whatever services you're subscribed to, and hopefully even some PlayStation-related content.

I'm just curious what this means for PS+... Is it now SEN+?

shoddy2265d ago

I'm sure it'll be psn+ from SEN.

bradgrenz2264d ago

It was never called PSN+, it was always just PlayStation Plus. There's no need to change the name of that service.

Article is misinformative and jumps to wrong conclusions. Only the accounts will change name. The service itself will remain PSN.

Does this mean we might be able to get a PSN ID change feature in the works!?

Lulz_Boat2265d ago

it's already here. but only for japanese accounts.

Mit2265d ago (Edited 2265d ago )

Lulz, you're wrong. It isn't an online name change. For an example, lets say your original name is lulz_boat, but you changed it to lulz; you'd only be able to see it on your friends list.

So if you were to go into something like PS home, or a game, everyone will still see you as lulz_boat instead of lulz. Also if I wanted to send a message to you, but you are not on my friends list, I'd have to send the message to Lul_boat because your ID isn't really it's only a change for your friends list to see. so everyone will know you as lulz_boat still. It's not a actual ID change feature like XBL.

EDIT: Also, even when you change your name now on the jap psn, you can't see yourself,or friends as the changed name guys can also all have the same name because it's not an official name change. I can tell you've never really tried it before, you've probably only heard about it. You should try things before you state stuff.

So it's all about Name and terms of service ?!
I thought there would be a new XMB

SaffronCurse2265d ago

Huh..well you thought wrong.

jwk942265d ago (Edited 2265d ago )

You didn't read the first article did you?

If this did add any new features, I'm hoping for XG Invites, if the PS3 is capable of that. Is it?

MrBeatdown2265d ago

PSN actually already supports cross-game invites, it's just that many developers don't use the feature. Modern Warfare 2 had them. If you received a message inviting you to play, and you accepted, you would be prompted to quit whatever game you were playing, asked to insert MW2, and then you'd be brought right into the match.

jwk942265d ago

Thanks for the clarification, I do realize that some games support it, as is the case with In-game music. But I'd like to see this feature implemented across all PS3 games if it would be possible to do that with a simple update.

Hx3KinG2265d ago

In what way does the PS3 benefit from XG invites anyway? receiving an invite for a game your not even playing, is wanted that badly? dont make sense to me!

YourFlyness2265d ago

Hopefully with this change and integration of services, they will implement a Name Change feature

TheHater2265d ago


How hard is it to give up this option. I mean, F**KING REALLY?

Lex_Dangerously 2265d ago

Something tells me that you wish to change your master account..... I know I know, I'm quite perceptive....... ;)

Also I liked that you typed /rant then proceeded to talk more about it. Lol.

Ot: SEN.... that will definitely take some getting used to. But I don't mind the name change.

Fylus2265d ago

I agree with him though. I've been a sub since launch and I haven't been able to purchase ANYTHING from the store. Also, I'm Level 12, so I'm definitely not going to create a new account like Sony has told me to... I've spent years working on it, I'm not giving that up just because Sony doesn't want to bother with us measly little sub guys...

SilentNegotiator2265d ago

Because the person in charge of the master account (perhaps a parent or one of two roommates) won't WANT a sub-account (kid, other roommate, etc) to become a master account.

You should have just made another account all those years ago.

Kstaa182265d ago

Other Playstation services suck anyway. And SEN just doesn't feel right.
OPINION: read article that the Playstation brand should be dropped. Is this the first step in making a "Sony" brand console.
