Sony Entertainment Network SCE
Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) and Sony Network Entertainment International (SNEI) today announced the consolidation of all Sony entertainment services under the PlayStation Network brand, which will henceforth encompass games, TV, video and music services. The change will join PlayStation Store, PlayStation Plus, the cloud-based PlayStation Vue, and PlayStation Now to Video Unlimited and Music Unlimited. Video and Music Unlimited will see the first of the motion’s changes and soon be rebranded to PlayStation Video and PlayStation Music, respectively.
The reforged PlayStation Music will also be backed by Spotify, which recently sealed an exclusive partnership with Sony, said Sony Network Entertainment Vice-President Eric Lempel in a PlayStation Blog post. Spotify on PS Music will become available in 41 countries and regions this spring, in both free and premium packages. Lempel was quick to confirm that free users will be able to play Spotify music while gaming.
Monikers aside, no service will see significant changes to use available content, fees, and so on. The primary reason for hedging on the PlayStation Network name, SCE and SNEI said, is to introduce heretofore external music and video services to PlayStation, as well as expanding their entertainment network as a whole. Sony neglected to add: “If the PlayStation brand can’t save these things, nothing can.”
