Sony gives PSN new SEN badge in days

Sony has given notice that the unification of its online entertainment services mentioned during its CES keynote would affect the PlayStation Network on February 7. A terms of service change will see the service renamed as part of the Sony Entertainment Network. Actual functionality should stay the same.

PSP users will at least for now still see the PSN name past the February 7 deadline, although this may involve the PSP's gradual decline as a platform.

The terms do add details of the PS Vita's location-based services, such as Near. Parents are also given a briefing on parental control limits for chats that their kids hold as sub-account holders.

A centralization around SEN is coming just before Kaz Hirai becomes CEO and as his efforts help bring together previously separate groups. SEN includes both PSN as well as Music Unlimited, Video Unlimited, and the iCloud equivalent PlayMemories. [via AnalogHype]
