Finally, Your Gold PSN Trophies Are Worth Something

Bid for, well, greatness.

Fancy owning a piece of PlayStation history? Got plenty of gold PSN Trophies? Well, as we hinted last week, gamers can now bid on some cool real-life goodies with your virtual silverware.

The site’s getting hammered just now, but potentially you can log in with your PSN account, and it’ll tot up your gold Trophies. Then you can bid on the goodies, which are listed below.

Day Item Game
Day 1 (7/16) Black Hand Outfit Killzone: Shadow Fall
Day 2 (7/17) Infected “Clicker” Costume The Last of Us
Day 3 (7/18) End Scene Concept Art PlayStation
Day 4 (7/19) Dragonborn Dagger The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Day 5 (7/20) Witch Doctor Mojo Diablo III
Day 6 (7/21) Crane Scene Concept Art PlayStation
Day 7 (7/22) Witch Doctor Cursed Skull Diablo III
Day 8 (7/23) Delsin Rowe’s Outfit inFAMOUS: Second Son
Day 9 (7/24) Dragonborn Shield The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Day 10 (7/25) Captain Kenway’s Cutlass Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag
Day 11 (7/26) Dragonborn Sword The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Day 12 (7/27) Dragonborn Stalhrim Mace The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Day 13 (7/28) Witch Doctor Ceremonial Garb Diablo III
Day 14 (7/29) Helghast Sniper Outfit Killzone: Shadow Fall
Day 15 (7/30) Captain Kenway’s Outfit Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag

The trick, of course, is to bid tactically. If you really want something, splash all your Trophies on it, but you might want to spread out the bids across the whole collection.

Your Trophies remain in your PSN account, of course. Sadly, this isn’t open to Europeans, but hopefully SCEE are taking note and will offer up something similar down the line.

The Killzone outfit’s already getting bids of at least 300 Trophies…

Bid here.

  1. Cool idea, but this will be for a handful of players only. It would be better if instead you could “trade” your gold trophies for a raffle ticket. That way, everyone would have a chance to win, and of course the most devoted players would increase their chances by getting more tickets.

    Still, it is a good idea :)

  2. I can’t see this coming to Europe due to gambling regulations (over 18 restrictions etc.). Even though the trophies are virtual they’re being used to gain real items. The fact Ebay still runs in Europe is weird, I’m pretty sure they’ve luckily managed to find quite a few loopholes.

    • Auctions aren’t gambling! It’s just buying stuff.
      Don’t you think the US also has gambling restrictions?

      • Yes but in certain aspects bidding can be classed as gambling. My old company used to hold different competitions, gambling apps, auctions and the regulations are very strict and there is a very fine line between anything involving bidding being classed as gambling or a competition.
