PlayStation Trophies Can Now Earn You Discounts

PlayStation Trophies Now Earn You PSN Credits to Spend

Sony is making trophy hunting a lot more worthwhile today by assigning an actual monetary value to the ones you earn.

An update to Sony Rewards (via GameFAQs) has introduced a new method of earning PSN credit: unlocking trophies.

Under the terms, earning 100 silver trophies is worth 100 points, 25 gold trophies net 250 points and 10 platinum trophies - which are awarded for earning every trophy a game offers - gets 1,000 points.

Silver Trophy: Get 100 Silver Trophies while you game and earn 100 points. Points are not rewarded retroactively, meaning that trophies earned prior to the user linking their PSN account to the Rewards scheme won't count.

Entertainment and electronics major Sony is currently rolling out a new PlayStation rewards program that is available exclusively in the United States, as of now. Once you've reached 1000 points, you can exchange them for $10 of PSN credit.

If you're still interested in the program, and you probably should be since it's free, just head here to get signed up.

In response to the new reward system, Xbox Boss Phil Spencer wrote on Twitter "Sounds like a cool feature, I'm going to give it a try". You'll be placed in different rewards tiers as you increase your score and you don't have to start from scratch - any achievements you earned in the past will be used to calculate your starting tier, and the gems you're given through the program can be used to purchase a variety of products including Xbox One controllers. It does help lengthen games in some cases but many times it's just to make you grind for more points. Aside from personal satisfaction, what do you get for that Platinum Trophy you spent 50 hours (or more) earning?
