Playstation Rewards Program Will Net You Some Themes for Your PS3!
Sony announced today a free rewards program for Playstation 3 owners (and PSP owners in the future), and it goes into bet tomorrow for Playstation Plus and Gamer Advisory Panel people. The idea here is that you buy stuff from the Playstation store, work your way up through a trio of reward tiers (“Select,” “Pro” and “Legendary”), and then you get free stuff like:
- Exclusive PSN avatars that display member status in the program
- Exclusive dynamic themes and PlayStation Home content
- Opportunities throughout the program year to participate in members-only sweepstakes and giveaways for experiences and merchandise you won’t find elsewhere (The first of which is an all expenses paid trip to the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, as PlayStation’s guest)
Since you probably won’t end up winning a free trip somewhere, this may not seem so great. But it’s free, so whatever. Also, this tactic is kind of brilliant for this reason: if you own both a PS3 and a 360 and are considering buying a downloadable game that is available on both consoles, you will in all likelihood choose the PS3 version for the achievement/trophy-like status boost.
