Sony Posts PlayStation Stars Scheme Overview, Release Dates

Sony has posted an extensive overview of its new PlayStation Stars program to the PS Blog, covering everything there is to know. The scheme launches today across Asia, and will be rolled out to North and South America on 5th October 2022, and then Europe gets it eight days later on 13th October 2022. The service is completely free to join, and you do not need a PS Plus subscription to sign up. Although, an active membership does provide extra benefits.

By signing up, which is done on the PlayStation App, you’ll gain the ability to earn the following rewards:

  • Loyalty Points — Can be redeemed for PSN Wallet funds and select PS Store products
  • Digital Collectibles — Described as “beautifully rendered, digital representations of things that PlayStation fans enjoy, including figurines of beloved and iconic characters from games and other forms of entertainment, as well as cherished devices that tap into Sony’s history of innovation”.

It’s important to stress once more: these digital collectibles are not NFTs. Sony says they’re “created just for our loyalty program, and while some can be rare, they are not one-of-a-kind nor does it leverage blockchain technology. They cannot be resold or traded. Digital collectibles can only be earned or acquired through PlayStation Stars.”
