Sony Offering PSN Credit for PlayStation Trophies

 

A new rewards scheme means your PlayStation trophies are not just cosmetic anymore. In fact, players can now earn PSN credit through their trophy triumphs. However, each trophy is worth very little, and the scheme is a US-exclusive, at least for now.

PSN Credit for PlayStation Trophies

The rewards are structured thusly:

  • Silver trophies are worth 1 point each, up to 100 points a time;

  • Gold trophies are worth 10 points each, up to 250 points a time;

  • Platinum trophies are worth 100 points each, up to 1,000 points a time

Players need to collect 1,000 points to exchange for a $10 PSN voucher. Not a bad return for ten platinum trophies, really.

Let’s take a look at the PSN trophy leaderboard; according to Kotaku, it’s topped by Roughdaw4. Roughdaw4 earned 5,551 silver, 6,903 gold, and 1,359 platinum trophies. Converted through PlayStation Rewards, that equals $1,583 of PSN credit. However, the rewards scheme only counts trophies earned after signing up, so retrospective achievements are ineligible.

A View From the Competition

PlayStation is not the only platform to offer achievement trophies, but is the first major player to offer associated rewards; both Steam and Xbox offer superficial achievements. As such, at least one PlayStation competitor is taking note; Xbox head Phil Spencer is following the development very closely. In fact, Spencer seems impressed by the idea and promises to test it himself:
