PlayStation trophies can now earn you PSN credit

Posted November 07, 2017

Basically, you can get games by playing games.

A remark on the Sony Rewards Passes site says that gamers can win points via unlocking silver, gold and platinum trophies in the games they get to play. If you want to turn those points into PSN vouchers, it'll cost you 1,000 points to get $10 worth of credit.

Firstly, users must link their PSN account to Sony's new Rewards program, which outlines that 100 silver trophies will net 100 points, 25 gold trphies is worth 250 points and if you're a completionist, 10 platinum trophies will get a cool 1,000 points. This might even get me to start hunting for that "Back From Hell" trophy you get for completing the ever tedious, ever frustrating Extreme Survival in Street Fighter 5. The catch is that you must be signed up for the Sony Rewards program and have your PlayStation Network account linked to it before earning the trophies.

Los Angeles Chargers hang tough, but fall to Patriots in Foxborough
That unit had another solid outing against the Chargers , save for Melvin Gordon's 87-yard touchdown run in the first half. It certainly seemed as though they could pull the upset as the Patriots came out a bit stagnant.

There are some downsides and stipulations to keep in mind: first of all, the offer is only available in the United States.

The Sony Rewards program also offers discount codes, or points for things like signing up for trial programs (four in all), subscribing to PlayStation Network services or buying and renting movies. So, this promotion won't exactly be earning you free games hand-over-fist, but it's something. With this program, you'll need to do that for 10 different games before you get a payout. A nice gesture of appreciation for trophy hoarders, or could Sony have done more? They were always harmless to begin with and players didn't have to sweat over them but now they have some important uses that will make them harder to ignore.
