PlayStation Stars

PlayStation Stars, Sony's new rewards program which just launched in Asia and has already begun to ruffle some feathers, appears to have an exclusive invite-only tier of service, according to information datamined from the PS App.

This fifth tier, which is supposedly called Diamond, is referenced in images and animations hosted on the PlayStation website, along with a description that reads: “In an endless sea of stars, it seems like there’s nowhere to hide. But you wouldn’t be here if you let challenges like that stop you. Welcome to Level 5.”

Pretty poetic, isn't it? While the assets themselves are real enough, whether they get implemented or not remains to be seen. As for the benefits, your guess is as good as ours, ditto for the entry requirements, but we have to imagine it will include having unlocked the platinum trophy in both Knack and Knack 2.

Could this be something introduced when PlayStation Stars goes live in the rest of the world? The service rolls out in North America on 5th October and in Europe on 13th October, so we won't have too much longer to wait to find out. Do you think you will make the cut and be invited to join the chosen few in the Diamond tier? The VIP section awaits in the comments section below.
