PlayStation Rewards Is Live

Steven Artlip of P*N writes, "You might want to check your email if you are one of the more active people on the PlayStation because it seems like they are already sending out emails for their new PlayStation Rewards program. The signup process is pretty simple, you just login, nothing more. Currently they have their CES giveaway up that you can enter, and then they show a progress bar for how far along you are to the next level."

I posted this on the n4g forums last night. My email came in yesterday evening. It's a novel idea to be rewarded for something you do anyway.

What Nintendo rewards lol
Why use an xbox article if they copied off Nintendo???/

...I got my invite last night as well. It does seem to be a service to doing what you already do, but just provides another singular place (website) to meet other people who enjoy PlayStation products games and services.

Earn progress toward rewards every time you play a new game for the first time or buy stuff from PlayStation®Store, including movies, shows and games. Then start racking up cool rewards like exclusive dynamic themes, avatars and PlayStation®Home items, and get the chance to participate in members-only sweepstakes and giveaways. By helping us test out the program, you get to go behind the scenes of this exciting program before anyone else and get a head start on earning Select, Pro and Legendary status!

--- The above is directly from the e-mail you receive ---

You forgaot the most important thing. The invite expires 11-04-10.

I got my invite as well. I don't really know what this will entail or how the program works. Does it track trophies? Or do you have to register the product code? I notice I can enter to go to CES, but theres no where to see what rewards I have or will get. I love the idea but I don't get it yet. This doesn't count the last few years of PS3 gaming? So it is only what I buy from here on out? How do I submit PSP games to the rewards, etc. I have a lot of questions on how this thing actually works? If anyone knows exactly let me know please.

D4RkNIKON2606d ago

Yeah I don't quite get it either but I also got an invite and plan to check it out.

Christopher2606d ago

As far as I can tell, it doesn't track trophies. I've earned two today and it hasn't budged. I have yet to play MoH, so will stick that in today, play it a bit and see if that does anything. I'll then buy the RDR DLC w/the PS+ savings and see if that does anything. Then I'll buy a movie, check that out... etc.

What they need to make sure is that they list all of the things you've done that's improved your Rewards score on the rewards site. Making it invisible isn't going to do squat but make people not give a crap about it because they have no clue what to do in order to increase their reward level.

Anything extra is good in my book. Keep it up Sony.

AssassinHD2606d ago

I got my email last night, but I didn't actually wait for it. I just went to the PlayStation forums and followed the link in the PlayStation Rewards Private Beta forum. I did that early yesterday afternoon.

TheHater2606d ago

but for the wrong PSN ID.

The first prize is a trip to CES .

rdgneoz32606d ago

No, the trip is not the first prize of the program. Its a contest you can enter if you're part of the program. You have to enter it to be able to win, you're not automatically entered as long as you're in the program.

America only, thanks again Sony..it's nice to see how much you care about us E.U customers.

himdeel2606d ago

...Sony Europe already said they'd consider adding it for you all if the beta goes well in NA.

Christopher2606d ago (Edited 2606d ago )

If you can solve all of the legal issues with getting these things done at the same time worldwide, I know more than a few companies that are looking to pay you millions of dollars to work for them.

AntsPai2606d ago

But hopefully we'll get it once Sony realises it's a good idea.

Adva2606d ago

What are you complaining about? Canada doesn't have it either and it is manged by SCEA as a whole. SCEC exists, but they get all the stuff from SCEA.

moparful992606d ago

You act like you all don't get anything.. You have that on demand video service and you get amazing things like the special edition gran turismo 5(which we dont get) Europe has recieved alot great stuff.. Remember that playstation room even that traveled europe and gave people the chance to play games like gran turismo 5, move titles, little big planet2, killzone3? Yea America didn't get anything like that.. So just relax you sound spoiled....

Edit: Nevermind. ^_^ I got the invite. Lol.
