PlayStation Trophies Can Now Earn You Discounts

If you'd like to start earning a few bucks from your hard-earned trophies, all you have to do is link your PSN account through the Sony Rewards Website.

Under the new rewards program, trophies can be earned through a user's PlayStation account, and then converted into points and redeemed against PSN vouchers. Silver, Gold and Platinum trophies will all get you points for credit while Bronze trophies aren't included in the program.

Gold Trophy: Get 25 Gold Trophies while you game and earn 250 points.

This seems like a neat idea for players moving forward, still impressed with Sony's consoles and line-ups, but it could similarly mean a lot of work for players retreading old ground, especially those that have previously earned platinum trphies in the past which requires every trophy in a game to be collected first. The system has been updated so it will now allow you to convert trophies you've earned in various games towards currency as well.

This is now only available to gamers in the United States, and trophies will only start counting after you sign up.

1,000 Sony Rewards Points can be traded for $10 in PlayStation Store credit. You can read about them and sign up for the program on the official site. This isn't a ton of extra cash for your purchases, of course, but it can actually help you play multiple free games.

What can you do with these points? It's no longer easy to argue that achievements and trophies are worthless as they will now let you earn currency towards games.

With all that said, there's no timetable as to when Xbox would begin to implement a feature like this or even if they will.
