PS4 Rewards System

19 replies 435 views Edited Jul 24, 2013

Steam has come up with a brilliant system for player rewards! The best part? Everybody (Gamers, developers and Valve) profits from this system!

 

Everybody knows that we have a Trophy system on PSN, but what if those hard earned trophies were actually worth something more than just bragging rights? Now, it is too early to tell for sure, Sony may have a new system for player rewards even though we know that we are still getting trophies. However, I would be absolutely stunned if the next generation console didn't have a better rewards system; one that would allow a person to use their trophies for real items on PSN. 

 

Check out this link about Steams Trading Cards!...... sigh.....If only Sony did something this wonderful...

Am I alone on this or would anybody else like to see something like this on PSN?

No.


As we saw with the "Bid for Greatness", people would abuse the system by trophy hacking.

Bid for greatness was different, You still got to keep your trophies. And obviously there would have to be a strong security system. So far, Steam/Valve are doing an excellent job at showing what can be done.

I would like to see something more going into the next gen, I would have thought that idea would've been implemented on these consoles. When I first started playing years ago on this gen that's what I thought they were for to win gifts.

Sony should definitely start some sort of rewards program.  If the potential for abuse is the only thing stopping them, it's up to them to design a secure system.  Even Microsoft has Xbox Live Rewards, trivial as they are, it's something.

This could be a cool concept if they could implement some kind of "Honest" system. It'd be cool to have the trophies have more meaning and be able to use them for more than just bragging rights.

Nintendo has a reward system for purchasing certain games, which you earn points toward physical rewards. I know this isn't quite what you all are talking about, but there is a console company doing something in the ball park of a trophy reward system.

So maybe your profile portrays how many reward points you have. If Sony does this, they should have a scale on how many points you get for a game you purchased whether it be a digital copy or hard copy, maybe a reward bonus for paying for playstation plus (which the reward program will be through if they decide to do it.)

No, it's the same trophy system it's will just be more visible on the PS4. You get to keep your current trophies and earn more on the PS4. So, it's up to you if you want to brag about them.
