"Greatness Awaits" Auction: Gold Trophies Are Your Currency
This is a very cool idea, wouldn't you say?
Sony has launched a new auction promotion that lets gamers bid on costumes, props and weapons featured in the new "Greatness Awaits" trailer that debuted at E3. It was to help announce the PlayStation 4, which will hit store shelves this holiday season.
There are 15 items available, but you don't use actual money. Rather, you bid on the items by using the Gold Trophies you've earned over the years. You won't lose the Trophies even if you win the item, so you don't have to worry about decimating your Trophy collection. A new item will go up for bidding every 24 hours starting today; the promotion runs through July 30 and you can expect new items every day at 1 p.m. PDT. The first item is the super sweet Black Hand outfit from Killzone: Shadow Fall, which is a one-piece jumpsuit designed to fit a 6-foot man. It might not be good for picking up chicks, though.
Future items will include an infected Clicker costume from The Last Of Us, a Dragonborn dagger from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and a Captain Kenway outfit from Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. See anything you like? More importantly, do you have the Trophies necessary to win...?
