Sony has announced a new loyalty program for PlayStation owners, which will be launching later this year. The program is free to join and will reward players for completing a variety of campaigns and activities. For example, the “Monthly Check-In” campaign simply requires you to play any game to receive a reward.
Other campaigns require you to win tournaments, earn specific trophies, or even be the first player to platinum a blockbuster title in your local time zone.
All PlayStation Stars members will have opportunities to earn loyalty points, which can them be redeemed in a catalog that may include PSN wallet funds and select PlayStation Store products. As an additional benefit, PlayStation Plus members enrolled in PlayStation Stars automatically earn points for purchases on PlayStation Store.
PlayStation Stores will also include a reward called “digital collectibles,” which is like a NFT but not a NFT. Collectibles are a digital representations of things that PlayStation fans enjoy, including figurines of beloved and iconic characters from games and other forms of entertainment, as well as cherished devices that tap into Sony’s history of innovation. There will always be a new collectible to earn, an ultra rare collectible to strive for, or something surprising to collect just for fun.
The program is currently in a early test phase, but will be launching later this year in phased regional rollouts.
