The Shape of Playstation Rewards: Quests
Oh, hey, Playstation Rewards. You have competition now, in the form of Xbox Live Rewards. Time to shake up the game a little bit, no? That’s what Sony is doing today with the addition of Quests to Playstation Rewards. Whereas you can only get Microsoft Points by spending money, Quests provide easy ways for you to gain some prestige or whatever by doing small simple tasks. Nine Quests will be added to the Rewards program tomorrow for those in the beta, and among them will be tasks like playing one of a few specified Move games, watching Pulse in HD and visiting the central plaza in Home. Easy peasy. If it gets people to turn on their PS3s, so it’s a win for Sony. Seems smart, and it makes every day feel like an Oblivion-esque quest. Or not.
