    NO COFFEI!
    I hope those accidentally sucked Vita trophies from game backups won't get me any penalties.

    so a ps4 itself is 39,999 points, I'm curious about how many trophies that would equate to o.o

    You need to create a sony rewards account and link your psn account to it, then from that point earning trophies equate into points to be earned for rewards. Trophies you earned before the account was linked are not accounted for, and buying a system doesn't earn you any trophies.

    Damnit, just tried and it doesn't count trophies already collected. Account has been linked for years. It doesn't start counting until you "unlock" the pass.

    I'd have to have an American PSN account too probably, so I doubt a VPN will actually do anything.

    Only 4 of those have a platinum, and even then, the platinums would be worth 4$ total for a lot of hard work (the KH games are not an easy plat by any means). To me, this whole system seems like far too much work - I've gotten like 1 platinum trophy and 66 golds in my 7-8 years of PSN, though I guess it's neat for those insane people with hundreds of platinums.

    I did mention that in the first post that even trophy hunters would find it useless for the point value is worth. It is pretty bad to be honest "Let's reward players for hard work" HARD WORK IS RIGHT. You better believe it.

    Unlike nintendo who would get you reward points just for buying their game, they don't have credits to earn, but either games or discounts. :P

    that is just an excessive amount of trophies for such a small amount of money.

    Actually, if your PSN account is linked, you do earn points for buying games. The only catch is you have to buy digital from PSN store. I agree that there should be a way to earn points for physical copies though.

    Not overextending on games for $1 but props to Sony for the initiative.
