Trade Gold Trophies for real items!

9 replies 615 views Edited Jul 11, 2013

Remember the amazing 'Greatness Awaits' trailer for PlayStation 4 that Sony released a few weeks ago? Well, now a brand new and very interesting option relating to this campaign has appeared.

When you go to the official PlayStation YouTube account and click the 'Greatness Awaits' tab, you're presented with an explore button. Once clicked (if you just let it sit it auto clicks) a countdown is revealed with an interesting message:

"We'll be placing items used in the Greatness Awaits video up for auction. And the only currency we'll accept is PSN gold trophies. Get ready. Many will bid, the greatest will win," it reads.

Sony has never done anything like this before, and many people have been asking for some sort of reward system for the Trophies they have earned. Whether this is a look into what could happen in the future, or just a one-time thing, it's still very interesting to see what the company has planned.

Stay tuned for more details here at PSU.com.

Hmmmm... very interesting.

I'm thinking this may be just a one-time thing. (It's just for props used in the video, after all.)

 

MS was going to do something like this for Xbox 360, but they decided not to.

Reason: Too many people with hacked accounts / gamerscores.

 

Same applies for PS3. There are a lot of people with hacked trophies.

Isn't hard for someone to get that Gold Trophy count up, if they're that desperate.

Gold trophies are easy depending on the game. Fallout 3 and NV have some pretty easy golds, and so does GTA IV.

So where exactly do I go to do place these bids?  I don't really understand how I bid my gold trophies on stuff.  Can someone explain this a little bit more please because I find this very interesting.  Thanks.
