(Editors Opinion: As a self proclaimed trophy whore I think this is a great start for more player activity via the Sony rewards program. This promotes not only more activity with Sony rewards but it promotes more player activity for enjoying and completing the games many of us love to play. Also from a trophy hunter perspective, I feel like this provides more of an understanding for those who say things like trophies do not have purpose outside of bragging rhetoric and so forth so this validates the desire to achieve more trophies.[Which I am currently at 65 platinums.] So this provides a much praised effort in gaming for the Trophy hunter enthusiast)

Last but not least these rewards are not retroactive however for those users who may have signed up and linked their associated accounts via PSN and Sony Rewards. It should be noted that once you’re at the Sony Rewards earn category for PSN Activity you will need to click on the unlock option to active the reward for things such as trophies earned and PSN Activity.  So be sure to have all the aforementioned trophy tier categories unlocked. But what do you think? Are you interested in this rewards system. What would you like to see implemented in the future? Do you feel this is worth the rewards offered? Comment below let us know.
