    Sony recognizing trophies?

    Check out this email that I just got from Sony directly this morning -

    The bottom portion says, "You are the .01 percent" - I'm guessing this is because I signed up for the Sony rewards and it linked my PSN account to it so they are able to track it...I mean...it doesn't offer, or give me anything...but I guess it's why we get trophies right? For the recognition? (At least some of us do....) What do you guys think? Cool...? or waste of time?

    Yup yup, I got one from killzone 3 as well. It was pretty cool to be noticed by Sony and I had a lot of fun getting my 100% on that game too

    That's pretty cool. I haven't received an email like that yet, but it's good to see Sony recognizing people achieving plats.

    That's cool man. I haven't received any such email at all, I hope to get one some day though. I have 24 platinums now, maybe I'll get some recognition when I unlock my 25th plat. Ahh well, at the end of the day I'm just a rookie compared to most of the people on this website, so we'll see when I'm deemed good enough of a gamer to receive compliments from Sony themselves.
    Platinums: 24
    100%: 27

    It sounds like it's just the first party sony games then that they are recognizing people for if I'm right - Naughty Dog and then whoever makes Killzone - I mean, I just hit my 80th plat today and it's the only email I've gotten...so that would be my guess.

    Those would be Guerrilla games, and yes, I think that's probably it, but just with the most recent and popular titles. Wouldn't be surprised that people who earn the plat for GT6 get an e-mail as well, and the same goes for the "big" launch titles for the PS4 (Killzone: Shadow Fall and Infamous: Second Son, to be exact).

    Haven't received any mail from Sony. I doubt it might be only in US.

    That's cool! I think it's just another way SONY has decided to keep up customer relations. They probably have a program setup to automatically generate emails when someone gets a plat on one of the newer games. I mean, we're all members of the PSN so it's easy for them to know we got a trophy. Congrats!

    I never got an email. I feel left out now.

    Maybe when I hit 2000.

    It's an auto-response triggered by the Platinum of a first-party game registering on Sony's servers.

    Stroking an ego is a nice touch, but don't mistake "Thanks for completing our game. Now go buy some more." with "We've noticed you're a great gamer and we love you." It's nothing more than a marketing tactic to engender brand loyalty.

    Sony Rewards FAQ...

    Q: I live in Canada. Why can't I join Sony Rewards?
    A: We're sorry but at this time Sony Rewards is not available outside the United States.

    Damn.
