    Sony rewards system is best described as Sony's version of the Nintendo Rewards program, both allow members who are part of it earn points that can be used later to redeem for rewards after accumulating enough of the desired reward, though each of them have their own system of earning them. Sony recently updated their reward system to allow players who play games on any of the three systems, PS3, PS4, and PSVita, and earn trophies, to obtain reward points that can later be used to get playstation network credit to purchase any of the available content. Currently this is in place only for United States players at the moment but the points goes as value.

    100 Silver Trophies = 100 Points
    25 Gold Trophies = 250 Points
    10 Platinum Trophies = 1000 Points

    To redeem any points, you must sign up for the sony rewards system and link your Playstation Network if you haven't already, you can do so in the link source below.

    To actually get any credit to use on Playstation Store, you need at least 1000 Points to get $10 credit, as you can see is probably not really good to rely on this for more than anything major. Each requirement of points is placed a bit high that even trophy hunters may not have much use in this if you were expecting to get much of the content for free, most likely you would end up adding funds saving $10 or just waiting for discount of anything lower. Of course this doesn't mean you can use the points for anything else, points earned can be used for any of the available rewards. Seeing as the points are earned through playing games, would be most players' reason for consideration.

    Good luck with that, it probably won't be much worth since most conditions are pretty high requirements. Unlike Nintendo rewards which can be redeem mostly by simple purchase, this is more of hard work, which most of may be either too difficult for most players or even unobtainable (some trophies require online multiplayer, which playstation 4 cannot be used unless you have playstation plus subscription.)

    Also save editors is against terms of service. :ninja:

    I have seen some people claiming they were syncing hacked trophies and were not banned. I think it’s worth a try with a throwaway account at least.

    Last I checked (long time ago) Nintendo didn't offer exchanging points for their currency. Also there are other ways to earn points as far I know checking into this rewards system.

    When wii u was launched in 2012, they did. It was only exclusive to wii u Deluxe owners (the black system) and ended at the end of 2014.

    Now it doesn't exist anymore. Insead is just the my nintendo rewards, and you are right, there is no way to redeem currency on there, but there is obtainable games. (You probably saying the problem with that is you can't choose the game you want instead you only get a choice of what they offer.)

    Who has the most trophies?
    Him/her would likely get a fuck ton of games for free, which doesn't make much sense as Stallion83 gets paid to play games, who currently has almost 1.7 million Gamerscore.

    Perfect system Sony, perfect system ;')

    Then they ban your console ID and you can't ever login to the web with your PS4. Don't do that.
