Sony is letting you swap Playstation Trophies for rewards

What you do need to do is get registered for the Sony Rewards program.

However, now that PlayStation has announced that its Rewards program in the USA will take trophies into account, earning you PSN store credit for devoted play, the average player has a nice incentive to begin trophy hunting. If you want to turn those points into PSN vouchers, it'll cost you 1,000 points to get $10 worth of credit. Bronze trophies aren't worth any points, 100 silver trophies are worth 100 points, 25 gold trophies are worth 250 points, and 10 platinum trophies are worth 1000 points. The company's not giving out any cash, and the points system implies that you have to play hard to get significant wins. The reward scheme, which is available in the U.S. only, lets players earn points for racking up Silver, Gold, and Platinum trophies but the caveat is that your existing trophies don't count. And it's only good in the United States. So, this promotion won't exactly be earning you free games hand-over-fist, but it's something.

So what can you get for your hard-earned trophies?

For reference, 1,000 points is the equivalent of $10 of PSN credit.

All of the tasks to earn rewards are shown on the Sony Rewards website. A nice gesture of appreciation for trophy hoarders, or could Sony have done more? You can continue reading the rest of the replies to his answer if you like but be warned it gets pretty toxic the further down you go.

Whatever side of the line in the sand you stand on regarding achievements and trophies, this feature will be sure to make gamers happy.

It's an interesting idea, particularly because for a long time these unlockable achievements have served as their own reward, a badge of honour; for some they are the object of obsession, with glory hunters devoting their lives to the pursuit of bragging rights.
