PSN Availability[edit]

PSN is available in Iceland according to the world map. This is not true. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 31.209.139.201 (talk) 04:35, 22 November 2012 (UTC)

Clean up[edit]

This article is big on unnecessary detail (e.g. registration/log in procedure; rumors; event chronology). Our article on Xbox Live flows better. Instead of dedicating complete sections to individual services—explaining when they were made available or informing why they were unavailable for so long—each service is simply incorporated to the Features table with a brief description. Concision is key. Any ideas on how to improve this article? — TPX 20:10, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

This is a very short article which would be better presented within a longer article. Epicgenius(talk to mesee my contributions) 17:11, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

  • Oppose I feel that the lists article fails WP:NOTCHANGELOG. Even if it didn't, it would only be a matter of time before it became too large for this article and had to be forked out again. The lists article is also biased, it only lists North American titles, no mention of Europe, Japan and other regions. - X201 (talk) 17:57, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

Should be moved to PSN[edit]

As of a recent firmware update, the network is no longer called "PlayStation Network" in full. Its official name is simply "PSN" (just like what began its life as the Imagine Games Network is now, and has been for years, known simply as "IGN"). 173.160.130.14 (talk) 03:26, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

PSN is just initials and the current name is still the most common. When this changes the issue should be looked at again. At the moment i see no reason to move to a less common and descriptive set of initials than keeping the name they stand for.
Can you prove the name has been changed anyway? Thanks Jenova20 (email) 08:14, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
As I said, it became official as of the most recent PS3 firmware update. This has the text that accompanied that update. 173.160.130.14 (talk) 20:15, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
Since PlayStation Network is still the most common name, Sony is using both names, and since PSN stands for PlayStation Network, i'd suggest leaving it as is. If they had changed the name completely like when the Android Market became the Google Play Store, then i'd be pushing for a change too. Thanks Jenova20 (email) 15:41, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
