I guess it does make sense, but I really like "PlayStation Network"  better.

I think this is going to be a fantastic step forward for Sony. To get every possible service and unify it under the Sony Entertainment Network is a great plan, and will keep things simpler and more streamlined.

I wonder if there will be a UI change to go along with it?

I like Playstation Network better as well but still I see why they are doing it. But what changes does this mean for us gamers?

I think this means you can just have one account for every Sony service. It means you can keep track of all your digital game purchases, all your online orders for products, and your account information across all platforms.

Essentially: your gaming account and other accounts will be put together! It'll be more convenient than keeping track of 6 different accounts!

yes i agree with your comment , if they release a cell phone with psn integration then they will most likely get my money on the mobile phone department as well

It doesnt mean any change in practical terms for us or anyone else. It's just a name change at the end of the day. It means you will have eventually have one account fo all Sony entertainment services you use.

Absolutely! I've been meaning to get a Sony phone. This is an even better motivation if it can fully access PSN.
