PlayStation Rewards Program Delayed

The PlayStation Rewards beta launched late last year to select members of the U.S. PlayStation 3 crowd, while Sony promised that the remainder of the American fan base would have access sometime in April. It appears that’s a promise that they’re going to have to break, according to an e-mail they just sent out to the participants of the beta. The trial period will still be ending on March 31 as planned but they gave no indication as to when the full service will be launching. The quote below was taken straight from the e-mail in question.

“Based on what we learned, we have decided the program is not ready to roll out to the public in April as originally planned. But rest assured, we will continue to thank loyal and devoted customers like you with innovative offerings.”

The beta was strictly for gamers in the United States up to now but rumors did pop up from time to time that the service would be making its way across the pond eventually. While we’re still not certain if that’s true, the jump is bound to be delayed by this set back, assuming they were ever planning on it to begin with.

      • Okay, Sony needs to release more information about this as i have no clue what the program main purpose is other then making trophies worthwhile.

  5. i couldn’t see this ever reaching europe anyway.

  7. Fingers crossed for UK release eventually.
