    Recently I have read that SONY company sent out an email and it was in regards to PSN moving and now being called SNEA, can anyone else confirm? I have posted 4 URLS that I have found in regards to this information.

    URL1 information (PSP firmware users take on it)
    "recently everyone that still is ONLINE with PSN have now received an avance email from Sony that says starting April 1st, 2011 Nope, it not a Early Joke, Sony loves this day for some reason! That all PSN Accounts are going to be transfered over to a new company called SNEA and if you do not accept the new Terms Of Service, your existing PSN account will be CLOSED and any leftover PSN funds will be returned!

    Another thing see reading thru the new Privacy Policy is they are also during the switch-over pushing you for Credit Card info, even if you don't wish to use it incase of future purchases, it looks to me like a push towards a more PAID system in the near future similar to XBOX Live has been, and a way insure that all existing modded systems are OFFLINE as most likely their will be alot of background network changes to support the new SNEA setup!"


    URL2 information (what was pretty much in the email)
    "On April 1, 2011, Sony Computer Entertainment America LLC (“SCEA”)
    will transfer its online services operations, including your wallet
    and the funds in it, to Sony Network Entertainment America Inc. (“SNEA”).
    The first time you sign in to your Sony Online Services account on or
    after April 1, you will be asked to enter into a new Terms of Service and
    User Agreement with SNEA. If you do not wish to enter into a contract with
    SNEA, you may decline the terms of service and we will close your account(s)
    and return your funds. You can preview the new Terms of Service and User
    Agreement with SNEA at: http://playstation.innovyx.net/r?xncJcvvEcWlHHqEHWHTPJcvTlJv

    PlayStation®Network will continue to provide you with the highest standard
    of interactive entertainment. Your access to the best games, movies, TV
    shows, music and friends will remain intact. Thank you very much for being
    part of the PlayStation®Network online community! We look forward to continuing

    URL3 is a link for what the details entail to the transfer
    URL4, shows that even "qriocity" has posted something about SNEA??

    it seems outrageous, and the timing is way too short for such a quick move. that's why i'm skeptical, and i tried to get information off 3 sites before posting.

    I checked QJ, GFaq's, CAG and nothing. Not to mention i have yet to see this mysterious email. Im calling either a massive phishing scam, or just overall shenanigans

    I'm also highly skeptical. Even if they did I couldn't really care less. The past six years that the PSP has existed has basically been Sony doing everything they can to keep us _off_ the store.

    Even trying to shop with Media Go is a pain in the arse. I had to install it twice the other day because my version of Quicktime was _too new_ thanks to iTunes, and so they wouldn't accept it. And I don't even want QT on my system in the first place and still cannot conceive why it's a required download to install Media Go.

    So they can refund my crummy $2 or whatever remains and blow themselves.
