PlayStation trophies now can earn discounts on the PlayStation store

Sony Rewards

Sony Rewards

Kotaku worked out that all the trophies earned by PlayStation's most dedicated trophy hunter, Roughdaw4, would be worth $1583 (~£1200), or 25 full-price game downloads.

A new section to the Rewards Passes page over at Sony that started appearing in late last week lists silver, gold and platinum trophies as milestones you can fulfill to earn points. Plus, you need to unlock all the silver and gold trophies to earn that game's platinum trophy, so getting those 1,000 points for 10 platinum trophies is going to take some serious grinding.

Vodafone Provides 90 GB Data for Rs 399 to Prepaid Subscribers
Along with data benefits, the 448 plan also allows up to 250 minutes of free voice calls daily, with a weekly cap of 1000 minutes. However, unlike Jio's plans, the voice calls on Airtel's new plan are limited to 300 minutes per day and 1,200 minutes per week.

Sony says that 10 Platinum trophies are worth 1,000 points, meaning that each Platinum trophy you unlock is worth 100 points on its own. The reward scheme, which is available in the USA only, lets players earn points for racking up Silver, Gold, and Platinum trophies but the caveat is that your existing trophies don't count.

However, and this is a bit of a bummer to a large part of the PlayStation fanbase, the rewards scheme only applies to those in the United States. Xbox Live Rewards' MyVIP program offers reward credits based on the achievements you earn, among other factors. Once you've reached 1000 points, you can exchange them for $10 of PSN credit. Maybe you have a plethora of easy games to platinum on hand that will let you earn some quick cash. Microsoft championed the achievement/trophy system as we know it today with the launch of the Xbox 360 in 2005. For more rules and clarifications, check out the Sony Rewards FAQ.

Intel and AMD are rivals in the same industry and yet they've teamed up to develop a new laptop chip, possibly to take on NVIDIA . Users can expect to hear more regarding the new processor alongside products powered by it within the first quarter of 2018.

Your Playstation Trophies are now worth more than bragging rights. They were always harmless to begin with and players didn't have to sweat over them but now they have some important uses that will make them harder to ignore.

Diddy changes his name to Love
In 2005, he dropped the "P" altogether, and began performing under the name Diddy, which he used up until his latest name change. In 1999 Sean returned to his youthful nickname - Puffy, inspired by his childhood habit of "huffing and puffing" when angry.
