A program that isn’t quite in effect yet, Playstation Rewards has been in the works to reward players for giving up their time outside of their Playstations. Rewards is intended to give players the opportunity to enter contests as well as earn memorabilia or early access to games for free by simply playing games, interacting with people or media online, or wandering through Playstation Home. The program is still in its Beta, however, Sony is revealing the newest addition to the program with Quests.
Something that seems to be on every website that is looking to get more traffic by its users, Quests is shown as a way of rewarding players for “doing what they love”. Here’s Sony’s take:
For example, with Quests, users will earn progress for playing an eligible PlayStation Move game in the “Move It” quest, for watching PlayStation Network’s PULSE in HD on their PS3 system in the “Check Your Pulse” quest, or for visiting the CentralPlazain PlayStation Home in the “No Place Like Home” quest. Nine Quests will be released in the beta by tomorrow, and we’ll be adding crafty new quests throughout the year for your enjoyment.
This is a good opportunity to get the recognition you’ve been waiting for as a reward for being so diligent in browsing the Playstation Network or for actually using Playstation Home. The program is still scheduled to be released in April 2011.
