In an effort to reward their most loyal customers in a tangible way, Sony has unveiled a new rewards program called PlayStation Rewards, with beta testing of the program set to begin immediately. A full launch is currently scheduled for Spring 2011.
The beta test will be conducted on an invite only basis, and will be comprised of members of the exclusive PlayStation Plus and Gamer Advisory Panel members. While the program will only offer rewards based on PS3 involvement initially, it will expand to include the PSP as well at a future date.
Just What Tier of Gamer Are You?
The PlayStation Rewards program will use a tier based system to rank its members, and the higher tier players will be granted greater rewards. The tiers will be classified as Select, Pro, and Legendary. Gamers will move up tiers and earn greater rewards by playing more games, taking surveys, downloading content, and buying products from the PlayStation Store.
Possible planned rewards include new PSN avatars and Home content, as well as inclusion in sweepstakes drawings offering any number of great prizes, the first of which will be a chance for one lucky Rewards member to win their way to the 2011 Computer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
