    Bid for Greatness

    Bid for Greatness Opens, Own a Piece of PlayStation History – PlayStation.Blog

    You know that Greatness Awaits, but did you know that you can bid on it? Today sees the launch ofBidForGreatness.com, a one-of-a-kind auction house showcasing ultra-rare PlayStation memorabilia seen in PlayStation’s Greatness Awaits brand film during E3. If you win a bid, you’ll be the owner of an exclusive, real-life piece of PlayStation history.

    Here’s how it works: You’ll log into BidForGreatness.com using your PSN ID. The site will tally all of your hard-earnedGold Trophies, and you’ll use them to bid on 15 unique items (don’t worry, you’ll keep the actual Trophies associated with your PSN ID). You’ll bid on the items you want using Gold Trophies and skip the ones you don’t. Each day will see a new item go up for bid for just 24 hours, so be sure to check back often!


    Of course, you’ll want to think strategically. Spend all your Gold Trophies in one shot to try and score your dream item, or split your proceeds and go for several? The choice is yours. And the best part is, if you’re short on Gold Trophies you can earn some on your PS3 and PS Vita then come back to bid again.


    Bid For Greatness
    runs until July 30th, and a new item will open (and close!) each day at 1:00pm Pacific Time. See below for a full list of all the epic loot. What are you going for?
    You bid with your Gold Trophies. I'm sure some of the people here can win these things. I have a measely 49 and can't even bid...

    The active auction right now is at 301. Definitely out of most of our hands!

    Up to 462 now.. Unfortunately I don't think I will get anything with 69. Too bad they didn't make them lose them if you actually win the item. Then it would have given a chance to more than just a select few people.

    I've signed up, this is a great idea by Sony.

    I really think they should integrate this into the PS4 for purchasing items. Like maybe avatars or something like that. It's a great idea!

    I'm not going to bid on anything, but that Dragonborn stuff looks sweet.

    Thanks to Thunder for the platbar!!!

    This is a pretty good idea. Too bad a mere mortal like myself isn't deemed worthy.

    I think whatever you bid you can't use anymore for the rest of the auctions

    Only if you win the auction. The "auction golds" go back into your bidding account if you are outbid when current auction ends.

    EDIT: first auction is currently at 540 golds. Wow

    I think this would be a lot better if it were a raffle instead of an auction.

    I thought this myself as well. Since there are only 15 items you'll see who all is going to win right from the start. 300? 400? 500? Don't even bother if you have less...

    This is an amazing idea...and to be honest..I'd love to see more of this...seriously. Granted, I'm sitting at 207 gold trophies and the current bid is 975!! (for the Helghast outfit) but still....if this was an ongoing thing....it actually let's me use this basically virtual 'rewards' for something. Really, really cool idea Sony.

    I would give it a chance, if it didn't go so high. It seems that the only people who will be able to win anything will be ones with over 200 plats.

    They should rename this "Hack for Greatness" or "Share Account for Greatness".

    That is why it should have been a raffle instead.

    It's rather simple to check the winners accounts to see whether they hacked or have shared accounts earning trophies for them. Of course, using more than one account to earn trophies isn't wrong to Sony.
