    Interesing little contest SCE has going on called the "Greatness Exchange". If you've seen the Greatness Awaits trailer (making of video here), some of the props and costumes may have caught your eye. Many of those items, along with some other swag, are up for grabs. There are 3 simple steps.

    1. Go to the Greatness Exchange website and log in with your PSN ID.
    2. Use your Gold Trophies as entry tickets on the various prizes.
    3. Wait to see if you've won.

    Trophies are not consumed, of course, but tickets are. In other words, if you have 25 Gold trophies, and put 25 tickets on the Helghast Support outfit, you'll be out of entries for the rest of the contest (or until you earn more Golds). The entry time when you can bid (with tickets) on items varies by item, so, some have already been won (sorry didn't find out about this until yesterday).

    I'm not sure what regions this is available to, but it appears to be handled by SCEA. You can probably find out in the Rules.

    For some reason, your second YouTube link didn't work. The original SCEA link contains a minus (-) character in the link, which might be why it got eaten. Here's one that doesn't have that character:

    Is this a one-time thing or part of the PS4/PSN experience ?

    Edit: have always wanted Sony to do something with the Trophies. Great if they have started this ball rolling.

    Didn't even notice that, thanks.

    This seems to be quite heavily tied to the initial marketing push and the whole "Greatness Awaits" campaign. I'm going to guess a 1 time thing with very specific timing.

    I had never even considered any other use for them until now. Very interesting approach.

    Well, at least use them as chips for clan wars or 1-on-1 duel (e.g., Dark Souls PvP).

    Present those "won" trophies separately. :twisted:

    Edit: trophies and achievements are quite boring to me otherwise.

    Greatness Awaits, but only if you're in Northern America. :)

    Could've been easier to say "Sorry to everyone else." :p

    Let's hope SCEE comes with a similar thing. Seems cool to actually have something useful to do with those countless hours of gaming.
