PSN has been synonymous with the best in gaming, it has also evolved to become a premier, comprehensive digital entertainment brand. By tying the network services under a single brand, SCE and SNEI will aim to further expand the network business by building upon the success of delivering the best all-round digital entertainment, and also extending the ultimate gaming and network entertainment experiences to an arena including movies, TV, and music.
