PlayStation Stars

We got a look at the new program Sony is launching — PlayStation Stars. The loyalty program will include digital collectibles focusing on the history of the brand. The program kicks off in Asia at the end of September with the rest of the world to follow.

Grace Chen took to the PlayStation Blog to reveal more about the program and more specifically, the digital collectibles.

“Created just for PlayStation Stars, these digital collectibles can only be earned through our loyalty program. In some instances, collectibles will be provided as a way to commemorate past activities, achievements, or product ownership. They range in rarity, just like the actual products on which they are based or the effort required to earn them. Once you’ve earned collectibles, you can arrange them in a virtual display case within the PlayStation App and, if you choose, you may display your collectibles case within your PSN profile to friends. There will be different ways to acquire or earn collectibles – the primary way will be through completing campaigns.”

The video above shows some collectibles including the games Punto the gondolier from Ape Escape 2, PlayStation 3, PocketStation, Toro and Kuro celebrating a birthday, Chord Machine, and Polygon Man.
