Trophies to be converted to cash in PS3 Home

1 min read

I don’t like the idea of Home, I used to like it but the more I have seen it the more it appears to be a boring life simulator and that does not appeal to me.

What does appeal to me however is stuff and more accurately free stuff. So when I hear that I will maybe be given virtual money inside Home as a reward for getting Trophies in games then I am interested.

This could really change things and if it is true it is a very good idea. Simply by playing games and unlocking trophies I can now furnish my pad with big screen TV’s, furniture and get cool clothes. Not that any of that is worth anything but yet it still feels like I am winning here.

The guys over at PS3Blog picked up that a developer (Locust_Star) may have stated the following 

“The release date for home is Dec. 15th or the 30th…they said it is definite. There will be random weather, there will be a money system. you earn money from collecting trophies. and you will get money for the trophies you already have. Right now there is a censor on swearing, but will be taken off in the full beta. The open beta will also be 18+ only.”

However there is a bit of a dispute around whether Locust_Star was the real one or an imposter, but even if it isn’t true they should seriously consider it.

And how about Microsoft start giving out free Avatar clothing for gamerpoints? I need gold lancer for my man…

Oh and did anyone else pick out that we now have a concrete release date?

    Good idea to give trophies a meaning , although the whole idea of home is a bit meh , and looks a bit bandwidth intensive anyway.

    That would be a good idea. I cant care less to collect throphies, what use do they have, I play a game to enjoy it, not to be the best and do stuff some developer sit and thought out while bored or cause he did not have enough throphies to unlock in the game. Now that thropies might mean more it might be worth trying to get ’em.

    Bout Home.. will see when I finally get to (play) (use) (ok,, use) it.
