    Monetary value for trophies on the ps4?

    With the PS4 quickly approaching us theres been heavy rumors that the trophies on the PS4 will have a monetary value. For example:

    Platinum: .75 - 1.00 discount coupon (depending on the game or difficulty)

    Gold: .50 discount coupon

    Silver: .25 discount coupon

    Bronze: .10 discount coupon

    maybe these coupons will be added to your account on the PS store after achieving the trophy.

    What are your thoughts on this? could it be true? does anyone have any more info on this?

    forgot to state that if you hack or glitch to get the trophies, you will not get awarded the discounts for the trophies you have cheated to get.

    Yeah it sounds nice but very unlikely in today's business world.

    I would love it if they did this. Trophies are really the only reason I play games.

    Yeah, I mean God forbid you actually play games for entertainment or that you like, let's just play games for achievements that do nothing but serve as a bragging right.

    I'm kinda the same, getting the trophies means that I'm getting the most out of the game. I usually play a run through first without worrying about trophies so I can enjoy it thoroughly.

    I would like to see this feature, like with what Sony did auctioning off items from the Greatness Awaits program. It would be an addition incentive to earn trophies. It would certainly set them apart from Micro$oft.

    I call bullshit.

    Sony either lacks the knowledge or the will to deal with all trophy hackers. This program is subject to fraud on a massive scale unless they deal with the bigger problem.

    Sounds great. Won't happen.

    ^ This.

    There's no way this would work, since timestamps can be altered to appear legit.

    There is absolutely no way Sony would ever let this happen. It would be moronic of them as a business to implement this. Between hackers, multiple accounts, game/account sharing, and the fact that outside parties get to decide the trophy requirements and quantity per game, this isn't something Sony would ever seriously consider.

    They may hold a promotion here and there, but to lay out a flat coupon rate per trophy? Come on.

    While I agree with you that this would be a horrible business move and Sony would be crazy to do this, I just wanted to point out that while the devs/pubs do make their own trophy lists, there's a pretty strict standard of right around 1200 PSN points for a full trophy list (usually exactly 1230 with a plat, sometimes 1215 or 1250.) So if they did do something like this, the total value of the discounts would come out to be about the same for every game, cause it'd basically be a "cent" version of trophy points. I still highly doubt it would happen, because you'd get back 7-8 bucks per game.

    Tbh I'm not really in favor of that idea. I mean it sounds great and all, but that would just motivate trophy hackers to hack more and more. And we all know how Sony feels about hackers, right?

    This is a decent business model and could very well be implemented into the future of console gaming.

    The major issue is in the denominations of rewards. With each game having 40-60 trophies, the rewards would be ~$10 per completed game. Paying millions of people $10 per game would be foolish. There isn't enough product placement and micro transactions in the world to cover the potential losses.

    It would have to be something closer to 0.01 for a bronze, 0.05 for a silver, 0.10 for a gold and 0.25 for a platinum. More likely even less for each like, 0.01, 0.025, 0.05 and 0.10, respectively.

    It would be like buying God of War for $69.99 and after finishing the game, you would get an $0.80 voucher in PS store credit. That makes much more "cents" to me. lol
