PlayStation trophies can now earn you PSN credit

The catch is that you must be signed up for the Sony Rewards program and have your PlayStation Network account linked to it before earning the trophies.

In its early stages, 1,000 points equates to a $10 discount voucher for the PS Store, but is now restricted to the United States for the time being.

Don't forget to link your account through the Sony Rewards website to get started, and go through the terms & conditions. According to the rewards site, you can earn 100 points for 100 silver trophies, 250 points for 25 gold trophies and 1,000 points for 10 platinum trophies.

Papadopoulos made the offer during a meeting that both Sessions and Mr. He said Sessions did not react or comment one way or the other.

Before you get all excited and sign up, it's worth noting that trophies earned before signing up will not count towards the program.

This seems like a neat idea for players moving forward, still impressed with Sony's consoles and line-ups, but it could similarly mean a lot of work for players retreading old ground, especially those that have previously earned platinum trphies in the past which requires every trophy in a game to be collected first. So, this promotion won't exactly be earning you free games hand-over-fist, but it's something. Microsoft championed the achievement/trophy system as we know it today with the launch of the Xbox 360 in 2005. Stay tuned for more regarding Sony Rewards Program! A nice gesture of appreciation for trophy hoarders, or could Sony have done more? For many, achievements have become an addiction of sorts and forces those who want the 1000 gamerscore to do things they wouldn't normally do.

With all that said, there's no timetable as to when Xbox would begin to implement a feature like this or even if they will.
