It would be awesome if they streamlined this process. I got some avatars here and there but I platinumed Bloodborne on two different accounts and never got the platinum theme, offc the only thing I actually want. 

 

I contacted PlayStation Support about Platinum Rewards and they said I couldn't have them. I asked to be forwarded on to a specialist team and the specialist team gave me codes for the Platinum Rewards without issue. You should try it. Regular PlayStation Support sucks ass.

I assume this feature will be available to every developer, but it's hard to say how much it will be utilized outside of first-party titles. Still, it's a cool idea. I'm one of those people who never gets emails for the trophy rewards on PS4, so it's nice that they'll be credited to your account automatically on PS5.

As far as I know, they stopped selling individual avatars on the PS store a while back, so it looks like this is the reason why. Also, since profile banners are one of the rewards, it seems like you won't be able to set it to whatever screenshot you want like you could on PS4. Sounds like a step back, but I like the idea of earning a difficult trophy that rewards a banner, which you can then show off on your profile.

Yeah, and I think it's the same with paid themes too. There's a thread about it here:

If themes are going to be a thing on PS5, there's a good chance those will be given out as trophy rewards too.

I'm speculating that the reason for this is to have a bigger control over what players can set as their banners, I've seen some people with very lewd/suggestive banners and since Sony has been censoring PS4 games over the past few years, this change might be some type of censoring as well?

I hadn't considered that, but considering the absolute state of Sony these days, I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case.

I know sony have done it for some of their exclusive games but this is welcoming news imo if the user that as spotted this is correct.

 

I would like them to let us use any trophy icon we unlock for our avatar. Would be a nice way to show off the harder trophys people unlock but this is a good step forward.

 

Edit. Thanks mods for merging threads. I must have missed the original thread

It'd be a nice addition but some speculate that it's in-game rewards. Hopefully it is for our profiles.

 

The ability to use any trophy we've earned as our PSN avatar is something i've been saying should be added since 2010. That's one of my most wanted PSN features, personally. Me and a friend were on about this recently. Everyone would just use the platinum image for The Walking Dead telltale/Section 8!

Yes. People go on about how good/bad trophy icons are when the list releases but i just think who cares because all you can really use them for is either trophy cabinet or milestones on this site. 

So a new way to show them off on your ps5 would be a nice addition

As I said in another thread, sony Senpai noticed us. *noticing intensifies*

 

I think this is a good thing that sony is awarding us with banners, themes and avatars. But I can also see this as a bad thing as we will probably have thousands of bad looking banners/themes/avatars.

Back at the start of the PS3 days, there were talks of making our trophy images capable of being PSN avatars. Maybe we're seeing the beginnings of that idea returning.

The best reward I ever got was being able to set my hub to the Batcave in PlayStation Home for getting the platinum on Arkham Asylum. 

 

Platinum? I was able to just straight download it, it was on the PSN+ list in Home as a freebie along with the Dragon's Lair one.

I assume this will be available only in USA because fuck the rest of Sony's customers in the world. I tried FF7 Remake on a NA account, i got the avatars in 24 hours (which i can't use to my EU account). I tried in a few EU accounts i made just for it, nothing. I don't care if it's Sony's fault or the devs choice. Sony should demand the rewards to be available to everyone

Why is everyone presuming the 'unlocked' avatar and profile banner is for PSN? It could just be an in-game reward as the game is a MP focused game that will clearly have player profiles which can be customised with banners and avatars. Nothing in that screenshot confirms it's for the OS.

It’s a fair point I also considered.

 

But why would the trophy state what you unlock inside the game? Or why would a trophy unlock a reward whereas it’s normally an inside challenge that unlocks both the trophy and potential rewards?

 

I’d say we can only wait and see, unless they explain something prior to release.

We don't yet know fully how developers will use the cards (and that's a card, not a standard Trophy listing). Sackboy has the mini-guides and you can use them to instantly jump to certain points in the game which relate to the trophy the card is referencing, this game could simply be telling you what you'll get if you earn the trophy.

In regards to why a trophy would unlock it, both of those Cards are in relation to obtaining a goal (getting an S rank or all the str objectives), so technically you could be completing an in-game objective it's just telling you on the card that you'll be rewarded once you do it.

We'll find out soon, I just don't think it's in relation to PSN rewards, not based on what we've seen so far.

I hope this is for every PS5 game, trophies would then be an incentive to go for.

 a little late but I totally agree, trophies should unlock stuff tied to the psn network like avatars. Especially since PS5 isnt really selling them, it would be nice to get something unique for the platinum. Like they could done it with that Star Loyalty program that is going on now, but those collectibles kinda suck since you need app to see. Achievements/trophies could had been really cool.

Maybe one day during the PS6 era, when or If one ever comes
