You can use your gold PSN trophies to bid on PlayStation memorabilia

Wednesday, 17th July 2013 06:11 GMT By Phil Owen

Hey, so Sony is making your many hours playing games on your PS3 and Vita tangibly worth something in a series of auctions dubbed Bid for Greatness. The rub is that once you bid trophies, they are committed, and you can’t use them on anything else, so you have to be smart. The list of scheduled auctions and a video showing off the items are below.

7/16 Black Hand Outfit from Killzone: Shadow Fall
7/17 Infected “Clicker” Costume from The Last of Us
7/18 End Scene Concept Art by PlayStation
7/19 Dragonborn Dagger from The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim
7/20 Witch Doctor Mojo from Diablo 3
7/21 Crane Scene Concept Art by PlayStation
7/22 Witch Doctor Cursed Skull from Diablo 3
7/23 Delsin Rowe’s Outfit from InFamous: Second Son
7/24 Dragonborn Shield from The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim
7/25 Captain Kenway’s Cutlass from Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag
7/26 Dragonborn Sword from The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim
7/27 Dragonborn Stalhrim Mace from The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim
7/28 Witch Doctor Ceremonial Garb from Diablo 3
7/29 Helghast Sniper Outfit from Killzone: Shadow Fall
7/30 Captain Kenway’s Outfit from Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag

Auctions will begin at 1pm PDT every day, and once one starts the previous one ends. Go to bidforgreatness.com to have at it.

    That shield looks pretty badass, but I’d be worried about actually receiving any of those weapons through the mail, (not that I’m going to win any of them.)

    Thats a cool idea, but 975 trophies for the current bid.

    I think I have 2 trophies cause I played so much Demons Souls/Dark Souls, got them by accident :)

    It isn’t as much for wearing as it is for collecting, alot of games are obsessed with gathering collectible figurines, gear and even clothing.

    I for one never trade-in physical game copies because I want to collect as many as possible of decent games. I also collect figurines and some other more expensive stuff :)

    It’s a blast really, if I wasn’t in EU I’d sit myself down to gather a fuck ton of gold trophies to be able to bid.

    Really people? Can’t enjoy the currency that they give you for something worthless into something salvageable
