Quests Added to PlayStation Rewards Program

Chris Hagedorn's Avatar Posted by on Dec 06, 2010 // PlayStation Rewards Team

Since the launch of the PlayStation Rewards beta, members have been benefiting from doing the things they love to do on PlayStation and progressing towards Select, Pro and Legendary. You may have even seen some of the members that have already reached a rewards tier showing off their status in the forums or online via their exclusive PSN avatars.

PlayStation Rewards

When we announced the PlayStation Rewards program, we promised that it would continually be evolving. We have heard your feedback and today are excited to announce the addition of Quests to the program, which provide yet another fun way for members to participate and earn progress. Quests are PlayStation-related activities that you can complete to directly add to your progress meter.

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 Central Plaza in 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.

We hope those of you in the program are enjoying it so far. PlayStation Rewards was made to recognize and reward members for doing the things they love – interacting with and experiencing the entertainment that PlayStation offers. As users play games, check out PlayStation Network’s original programming, review games and explore PlayStation Home, they will earn progress toward the program’s three tiers – Select, Pro and Legendary status. In addition, members of PlayStation Rewards will be eligible to win exclusive prizes and collectible memorabilia throughout the year.

When the PlayStation Rewards program becomes available to everyone in April next year, be sure to check out Quests as a fun way to get involved with all the things you love to do with PlayStation.

You answer to my above post does help a lot, so thank you!

But please when this rolls out live, you should be able to manage it through the PS3 directly and not a website.

The reward system is getting better. The bar seems to be getting closer to being updated daily which is a huge thing for me. Hopefully the quests are interesting.

Great idea! Finally maybe a way to earn some points without being rich, thank you, please keep evolving the service. :)

When are you opening this to EVERYONE! Contrary to what they would like you to believe, yanks are not everyone.

I’m just about to get Select. I’ll be doing this stuff to level up.


+ jamespond003 on December 6th, 2010 at 10:09 am said:

who ever came up with this idea at the Sony HQ needs a promotion, I myself have not yet experianced it, but it sounds like the greatest thing since sliced bread, and I am sure that they will sort out any kinks soon-ish, like ” is there a way to look up our status on the ps3? I hate having to log onto my computer to see something that i should be able to see on my ps3″


+ TwinDad on December 6th, 2010 at 10:15 am said:

I’m in for trying out Pulse in HD. I always did SD to save bandwidth. But now that I have a 1080P TV I’m going to see what it looks like in HD.

get this to EU!!!

I forgot all about this.


+ DanteGC on December 6th, 2010 at 10:32 am said:

I think there should be a way to see what we have done to earn progress. I am in the beta and I am progressing but I have no clue what I have done to do it. I am sure my recent purchase of Dead Nation was part of it, but what else?


+ Massive_13 on December 6th, 2010 at 10:33 am said:

Being able to see your rewards status on the ps3 would be a nice addition. I also like to commend you guys on the idea of these quests. It shows that you guys have really been listening the forums asking for different ways to help move our status to legendary.

A big thanks goes out to the PlayStation Rewards team.

+ Lara-Croft on December 6th, 2010 at 10:37 am said:

I love it, I was having a hard time filling the bar since I don’t usually buy a lot from the store. But the quests are better makes you do different things then you are use to doing.

very cool….thx again sony…WOOOOOT!!


+ acepsycho on December 6th, 2010 at 10:39 am said:

when do quests begin.


+ that-acmilan-guy on December 6th, 2010 at 10:40 am said:

Chris can you please explain me this? It says we can play new blu-ray games to progress. What exactly do you mean by new? New as in new game to my system or a any blu-ray game that wasn’t played previously on other ps3s?

+ krae_man on December 6th, 2010 at 11:11 am said:

I love the response to the person saying “Why do I have to jump thorugh hoops when you said there would be no hoops?”

Why must everything you do be so complicated and contradict previous statements Sony?


+ Arcadian_Rebel on December 6th, 2010 at 11:18 am said:

Sounds great! I will be looking forward to this next year. :)


+ Xanthene on December 6th, 2010 at 11:29 am said:

still do not understand any of how the rewards program works. signed up for beta as soon as possible. I’ve made purchases on psn including dead nation, have been playing gt5, ac:brotherhood, black ops, madden 11, and more yet my ‘progress bar’ is empty. makes no sense. there is no clear definition as to what gets credited or rewarded and these quest’s only confuse things further.

so far this has been a big waste of time that is more confusing then it’s worth.


+ chaos_789 on December 6th, 2010 at 11:30 am said:

So, you said it would be open to everyone in april, do you mean US only, or are you going to bring this over to canada as well.


+ evil23alej on December 6th, 2010 at 11:30 am said:

wish there were more ranks but i guess i’ll do it for fun

This is awesome, great idea…

I so much appreciate you bringing things into Home and these quest sound like great fun.We have needed coordinated efforts with events for a very long time.
Your going in the right direction…
and I LOVE SONY!!!

Thank you Chris!!

Will this be released in Canada anytime soon?


+ daitoone on December 6th, 2010 at 11:35 am said:

This doesn’t benefit me since the trophies I get on my playstation don’t sync up with my online playstation acct.


+ MetalGearCrysis on December 6th, 2010 at 11:36 am said:

Sounds good! Can’t wait to partake.


+ reson8er on December 6th, 2010 at 11:43 am said:

This is pretty cool, I’m already enjoying the program so far, although I do with there was more diversity with the rewards for each tier.


+ reson8er on December 6th, 2010 at 11:44 am said:

@#82 “daitoone” PlayStation Rewards do are not affected by trophies.


+ KazeEternal on December 6th, 2010 at 12:00 pm said:

Why do I feel like Ralphi… My video is even themed this time.


+ Busca-Cabezas on December 6th, 2010 at 12:13 pm said:

Im a PS+ Member and a REWARDS BETA user. I like both programs and what they seem to be achieving. Good job guys and thanks for keeping PlayStation and all its affiliates #1 in my book!!! Oh! and yeah, I would like to also see my status or detailed status on my PS3 as well…


+ gold5225 on December 6th, 2010 at 12:19 pm said:

This sounds amazing! I love my PlayStation profile turning into a RPG. It really is awesome, this on top of trophies, so great!


+ TheGuardianFID on December 6th, 2010 at 12:27 pm said:

Awesome stuff guys thank you, so far it’s been great!!! 8)


+ phatmercado on December 6th, 2010 at 12:28 pm said:

Hey Chris, I have access to the Rewards forum but when I sign-in to the website and hover over my PSN ID, there isn’t a Rewards Page option in the drop-down box. I’ve read in the Rewards forum that you can get to your Progress Bar by way of the Trophies page, but again, there isn’t a tab for that on my Trophies page, either. HELP!!!


+ Loki_d20 on December 6th, 2010 at 12:36 pm said:

Will Quests account for previous actions, or just future actions?

And, agree with others that say we need to have some way of checking our reward status and quests on the PS3 instead of being forced to go to a browser.

Cool Idea. Thanks . I’m on it!!!!

+ Totallysane on December 6th, 2010 at 1:09 pm said:

i’ve been playing games like mad since i got into the beta, and i havn’t seen the bar move at all, nor gotten anything for playing games, and buying content. hopefully something will happen soon.


+ PHILDZNUTS on December 6th, 2010 at 1:15 pm said:

This is cool!! Great program, you guys are doing a awesome job. It keeps getting better and better. Another way to rank up for doing what i do all the time. Dont stop here keep adding more cool incentives.


+ Trieloth on December 6th, 2010 at 1:20 pm said:

Cool cool!! sounds fun but iam almost legendary already. We need something higher up than legendary. And different avatars for each tier would be great.


+ Sunnyknight on December 6th, 2010 at 1:36 pm said:

That’s pretty awesome.


+ Lopan on December 6th, 2010 at 1:38 pm said:

After making it to the Select tier, I can’t wait to see how long or quick for me to get to Pro status. Bring on those quests!!!!


+ Miketheking75 on December 6th, 2010 at 1:39 pm said:

Hope it helps me cause the stuff that I bought on the store didn’t add any points to my bar.
