PSN will become Sony Entertainment Network this Tuesday



12:35 AM on 02.06.2012

On Tuesday, February 7, 2012, the PlayStation Network shall cease to be, and the Sony Entertainment Network will stand in its place. Existing PSN members are receiving emails informing them that their terms of service are about to change in the wake of this alteration. 

Sony says the rebranding will not apply to the PSP "at this time." I guess Sony's already planning to bail out on that system completely with the PS Vita on the horizon.

We've known that the PSN was to be folded into the SNEI for a while, but it's been months since we last heard anything. Sony says the only thing that'll really change for users is the name. The online services -- and your associated login details -- will remain the same, but you'll have to get used to calling it something else.

I'm just going to start calling it Colin.
