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?

OneSneakyMofo2767d ago (Edited 2767d ago )

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


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
So this is probably some kind of scam. Don't click the link inside the email until Sony confirms this.

Elimin82767d ago (Edited 2767d ago )

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

IMChampion2767d 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.

Inception2767d ago (Edited 2767d 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.

NeoBasch2767d ago (Edited 2767d 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.

MadMax2767d 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!

Zashule2766d ago

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

ToastyMcNibbles2767d ago (Edited 2767d ago )

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

Gen0ne2767d ago

Nope. I want cross game chat.

ToastyMcNibbles2767d ago (Edited 2767d 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_king2767d 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.

Rynx2767d ago


"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.

dragunrising2767d 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.

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

TronEOL2767d 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.

ShadyDevil2767d ago

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

Punch-o2767d ago

Network related functions hmmmmm.

blackburn52767d ago (Edited 2767d 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.
