PlayStation Trophies Can Now Earn You Discounts on Games


To explain how it works, you have to earn various trophies in the games you play, but only while connected to your PlayStation account.

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. "But a recent update for the rewards program now lets you earn points based on how many trophies you have, and those points can then be converted into products or PSN currency". Bronze trophies won't get you anything and 1000 points gets you $10 of PSN credit. On PlayStation, achievements take the form of trophies, and up until today, there wasn't much reason to chase those aside from your own personal sense of accomplishment.

Netflix Debuts 'The Crown' Season 2 Trailer
Netflix certainly has a way with production values, and the budget has clearly been increased for season two. Among other accolades, the show won Golden Globes for Best Actress-TV Drama Series and Best TV Drama Series.

Sony has quietly introduced a new rewards scheme that enables you to make money from unlocking PlayStation Trophies. A platinum trophy is worth 100 points; gold is worth 10 and silver is worth 1. That's a bummer, but if you're going to be playing the games anyway, you may as well sign up and start earning so that eventually you can trade in your points for a tangible reward. You can read about them and sign up for the program on the official site.

Sony has begun a novel PlayStation rewards program.

All of the tasks to earn rewards are shown on the Sony Rewards website. The trophies-to-cash ability caught the eye of many gamers, but it also captured the attention of one key Xbox figure.

US, Turkey resume limited mutual visa services
Last month, U.S. missions suspended all non-immigrant visa services after Turkey's arrest of a United States consulate employee. We are also concerned about the cases against USA citizens who have been arrested under the state of emergency.

For more than a decade now, we've had achievements tied to our games in one way or another.
