Trademark Claims Sony Is Working On A PlayStation Rewards Program

By Spencer . August 5, 2009 . 7:34am


According to a recent trademark for P.S. Thanks, probably short for PlayStation Thanks, it seems that way. The trademark filed by Sony Computer Entertainment is for use with an “incentive rewards program” which identifies and motivates the top consumer base.


There are a number of ways Sony could incentivize their customer base. They could hand out points for each item purchased and reward frequent buyers with PlayStation products sort of like Club Nintendo. Or they could quantify top players by skill via trophies and reward them. The latter seems less likely since they’re targeting the “top consumer base” or in other words top purchasers.


What kind of prizes could Sony offer? Games seem likely, but if such a program exists Sony will probably throw in a few mega prizes. Last year Sony rewarded their fans in Southern California by passing out E3 invites at their PlayStation Blog meet up.

    Its a really clever play on words and it does what it says without any misconceptions. Lets just hope the rewards are worth more than a nicely worded gesture.

    not interested. I’m interested in saving heaps of money that shapes my future than purchasing loads of crap on PSN.

      wow so dramatic. if you happen to spend enough money enjoying psn, what’s the problem. you act as if occasional purchases that have a chance to give you a small reward would ruin your life.

    Reward good behaviour. If you like PSN and you like to buy…….why the heck not?

    Man, they can thank us by putting Jumping Flash! 2 on the Playstation Store.

    I’m still envious of Jpn gamers for being Club Nintendo members since I have literally tons of points lying around inside all the imports’ boxes.. redeeming them to an account not associated w/ a Jpn address is useless. Would be nice if Sony gives the same substantial goodies (soundtracks, games, etc) as Nintendo for rewards. But probably not likely since PSN games cost less than full Nintendo related games..
