OPM Rumor: Sony Considering Trophy Reward System

100°
306w ago - Get all the trophies in a PS3 game and you earn yourself a coveted Platinum Trophy that sparkles on your XMB. But Sony could have more in store for trophy hoarders, according to the US Official PlayStation Magazine.

To quote: "We've heard that SCEA is mulling over some sort of Trophy reward system," it says in the latest issue of OPM.

"We doubt it'll be cash (or the equivalent), but we suspect it might be exclusive access to early betas and the like," the magazine speculates.

Sony UK declined to comment on the rumor, but we'd say access to exclusive wallpapers or themes via the PS Store could also be possible, or early access to demos. Would be nice.

Confirmed: No Video Sharing in PlayStation 3 Home BETA

Remember how you were going to be able to invite other PlayStation 3 owners to your virtual apartment in Home, then watch videos together? That's not happening, at least not in the "open beta."

I got a demo of the latest beta version of PlayStation Home, Sony's upcoming PS3 virtual world, Tuesday. My full impressions are coming soon, but the biggest news to come out of our conversation was that the video-sharing feature has been killed, at least for the first public release of Home this fall.

Video sharing was one of the most talked-about features of Home when it was announced in 2007 -- not only because it would be awesome to go to someone's apartment and watch whatever movie they'd cued up, but because of the legal implications of such a feature that Sony was shrugging off.

While PlayStation Home director Jack Buser said the company...
