How does the program work?
With PlayStation Stars, you earn rewards by completing various campaigns and activities. Our “Monthly Check-In” campaign simply requires you to play a game to receive a reward. Other campaigns will ask you to win certain prizes, or even be one of the first players to win a popular Platinum title in their country/region. One of our first campaigns is called “Hit Play / 1994”, where members who correctly launch games that match number-based clues will receive a special collectible set.
Campaigns are regularly updated, so check the PlayStation app for new campaigns.
What rewards can I get?
There are two types of rewards: Loyalty Points and Digital Collectibles. Points can be redeemed in a catalog that may include PSN wallet credits, exclusive digital collectibles, and select PlayStation Store products. As an added benefit, PlayStation Plus members registered with PlayStation Stars will automatically earn points for purchases made on the PlayStation Store.
Beautifully rendered digital collectibles, digital representations of things PlayStation fans love, including figurines of beloved and iconic characters from games and other forms of entertainment, as well as treasured hardware that benefits from Sony’s history of innovation. There will be new collectibles to earn regularly, very rare collectibles to aim for, or something surprising to collect just for fun.
Digital collectibles you win or earn can be placed in a display case in the PlayStation app. You can also set the display status for others to see, if you want.
At launch, once you join, all members will receive a Star Gazer Telescope. We have punto gondolas from Escape the monkey 2PocketStation, Toro and Kuro, and more, as some of the first digital collectibles members acquire or acquire.
