As much as we enjoy trophy hunting in video games, at the end of the day, it always used to be just a small form of virtual gratification for playing games. Sure, bragging rights are always cool, but you know what’s even better? REAL MONEY! And you now can get money by earning trophies on the PSN. The way it works is that for every trophy you unlock, you get points that can then be redeemed on the PSN store to purchase games.
Here’s a breakdown of the value of trophies:
100 silver trophies for 100 points or one point per trophy
25 gold trophies for 250 points or 10 points per trophy
10 platinum trophies for 1,000 points or 100 points per trophy
It’s not a lot of money, because 1000 points, ie. 10 platinum trophies, gets you a $ voucher on the store. Even still, it’s not nothing and can be even more motivation to put in the time to play the games you buy to completion. If nothing else, get yourselves some new themes and songs on the PSN.
At least now you can tell your parents or girlfriend that you’re busy earning as you play games.
