People abused it and they caught cheaters I'm assuming. Thanks abusers. I knew they were going to do this...

Ah well, I wasn't in US anyway. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But I'm sorry for those that actively used the service.

Look up the new ToS on the sony rewards site.

Not sure where to find it, but the FAQ says:

Will I lose any of my current pass progress?
No. We will be transitioning all of your completed Passes, and in-progress Passes to the new pass experience.
Will I still be earning towards my PlayStation® Passes?
Yes. All of the PlayStation® Passes that you’re eligible for will continue to progress based on your activity.
 
That should translate to the trophy passes as well, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was removed.

I made a status update about this yesterday. It definitely sucks though, it's mentioned in the terms & conditions...

 

Trophy Pass: The Trophy Pass program has been discontinued. Sony Rewards members will not be able to unlock a new Trophy Pass after October 29, 2018.  For Sony Rewards members that unlocked a Trophy Pass prior to October 29, 2018, you may continue earning Sony Rewards points through the Trophy Pass program until November 7, 2019, at which time the program will be permanently discontinued for all Sony Rewards members. 

 

At least those of us who were in the middle of the passes have a year to finish them. <_<

Good info, sad to see it go, but not surprised. It is an easily abused system, I just hope they increase the points for spending money now.

Yeah, that point value per $1 spent sucks. Unless you're subscribed to multiple services & have their credit card, there's not really a decent way to make points. 😑

Yeah, I spend hundreds a year on the PSN store, but it would take a thousand for a simple 10 dollar PSN card lol.

 They really do need to increase their reward system values. It takes me almost an entire year for me to just get $10. almost seems pointless now. I bet they lose lots of user activity from this choice too.

it only affected america but i can understand why they did it because theirs a crap ton of super easy platinum's on psn. they should have limited it to games that cost x amount rather than any ps4 trophies

That's sad to hear, but not a surprise.  It was never an entitlement, so I am thankful for the $170 I was able to get just for playing games while the reward was in place.

Agree somewhat, they should have been more restrictive with trophies overall from the start. No multi lists for zone, system or remaster (one game = one list) and no platinum unless atleast xx hours/or high difficulty. Atleast for the reward program, wouldn’t mind otherwise too, evev though I would lose a fair share of my plats, hehe. To bad for US for the loss, but more sad that 95,6% of the worlds population never got it (and still no PS now in Sweden).

Why price matter when people can rent or borrow games for pennies? People that shop at gamestop can buy a used game, plat it in a week, and exchange it for a different used games, over and over.

I'm surprised it ever existed in the first place.

 

Still, it's a shame to see it go. It actually gave trophies a purpose. Maybe someday they'll come up with a system that can't be abused so easily.

Can't really be sad about it, no other countries got it so I'm sure anyone in America can also live without it. At least you got the opportunity and could have earned money, something like this should be for everyone and not just for a particular country.

Then do away with all particular region locked events like the one australia i believe had for the platinum trophy giveaway a while back and im sure theres been others but that one specifically comes to mind, do away with region locked ps+ deals/discounts/IGC titles, just have one giant global system that works for everyone anywhere

because being able to get 5 $1-3 plats in less than a few hours beats spending $20-40 on a pre owned game that takes maybe a few days to platinum.

 

yes rental services exist but in a time to money aspect its a bad deal.
