According to a forum user over at Neogaf, Sony has been sending out a email to all PlayStation Network members regarding a new name change to their existing online system.
Dear Psyko_2000,

On February 8, 2012, your “PlayStation®Network account” will be renamed a “Sony Entertainment Network account” or a “SEN account” in conjunction with Sony Computer Entertainment’s PlayStation®3 system software and PlayStation®Vita system software updates. (Note, this change will not be applied to the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system at this time.)

For general purposes, this account change is a change in name only. Your username or password will not change, nor are we asking you to change them. In accordance with this transition, some necessary naming changes will be made to the TOS and Privacy Policy.
Users of the PlayStation system are noting that the new name change has gone through already in some parts, including new registrations and activations.

Sony is obviously preparing for bigger things to come, as reports are claiming a more unified approach to content.
Sony plans to have many devices integrated through SEN in some fashion, with consumer accounts being shared across all for convenience. This goal has already been realized to some degree: “Music Unlimited” and “Video Unlimited” can be accessed with Android phones, Sony Tablets, Bravia TV’s, Blu-Ray players and more.
Could we see Sony's next-gen console allowing users to access everything under one "roof", making it a lot easier to navigate? Let us know in the comments below on your thoughts about this new name change and what it could mean to you, or where Sony are heading in the next few years with their services.

Interesting that there could be a possibility that Sony is moving away from the PS branding, might be a time to start working on a more unified platform rather than simple compatibility between products.

Haha, I just enjoy giving you guys breaking news is all :-)

What I will find interesting is if we get a system like Steam on the PS3 where it houses games across different consoles maybe, or older generations. Would be a lot nicer then what we currently have.

I can confirm this. Received the email from Sony on the 5th. In a way we already have steam on SEN, if you played Portal2.
