Trophy hunters in the United States can now earn a small amount of money, according to the Sony Rewards Program.
As reported by Kotaku, a new section appeared last week on the Sony Rewards website listing platinum, gold and silver trophies as milestones, which when earned, give players points. Those points can then be redeemed for actual money on PSN; although you’ll need to put in quite a bit of work to earn anything significant.
The overall layout of the scheme makes it unclear as to whether or not this is a one time deal for players or something that can be repeated to build up your earnings. Either way, it’s nice to be rewarded for all those hours of trophy hunting.
Below is a breakdown of what players will need to achieve in order to reap the new rewards:
– 100 silver trophies for 100 points or one point per trophy
– 25 gold trophies for 250 points or 10 points per trophy
– 10 platinum trophies for 1,000 points or 100 points per trophy
Once a player reaches 1,000 points they’ll receive a $10 PSN voucher, which can then be used to purchase an item from the PSN Store. It’s unclear at this time if players can opt to bank the $10 in order to continue trading trophies for points to purchase something bigger like a full price game.
Additionally, to be eligible for the rewards system, players will need to be signed up to the Sony Rewards Program and have that account linked to their PSN ID prior to earning trophies.
Also, this particular part of the program is only available to PlayStation users in the US with no indication of the scheme heading to Europe or other parts of the world.
