PlayStation Stars has launched! This is how you get your first rewards
PlayStation fans can now sign up for PlayStation Stars. This is a loyalty program that rewards you with digital collectibles or points for completing campaigns. You can exchange the points in a shop for a variety of rewards, including PlayStation credit and full versions of games. We’ll tell you how to complete the first tasks.
Login to PlayStation Stars
In order to participate in PlayStation Stars at all, you must first register for the program. This is done optionally via the PlayStation website or the PlayStation App for Android and iOS.
The best thing to do is to use the app immediately, as you can register via the Internet browser, but you will not receive any information about the tasks there and you cannot access the bonus shop either. PlayStation Stars can currently only be controlled via the app.
First campaigns and how to complete them
In the PlayStation app you will see an icon in the top right that shows you your PlayStation Stars level. Click on it, then you are in the overview of PlayStation Stars. You will then find the available “campaigns” directly on the first page. These are tasks you must complete to earn digital collectibles and points.
These are the digital collectibles:
The collectibles are virtual models of well-known PlayStation characters or important Sony hardware.
The first campaigns are as follows:
- This day is completely banana: Play a game of your choice on PS4 or PS5. As a reward, you will receive a Banana Boomerang collectible figure. The campaign is only valid for one day, so until October 14th!
- October check-in: Play your choice of game on PS4 or PS5 in October. As a reward, the Tyrannosaurus Rex waves from the iconic PS1 tech demo as a collectible.
- World Warrior Online Challenge: Play an online match in Street Fighter VUltimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Mortal Kombat 11 or Tekken 7. As a reward you will receive a collector’s figure of a cute cat. PlayStation Plus Extra subscribers can complete the quest quite simply, Mortal Kombat 11 is available for you to download from the Games Catalog!
- Press Play/1994: Here you have to start games matching song hints. These are Death Stranding (Baby I Love Your Way x Go West), Returnal (Stay x Circle of Life), Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End (Mr. Jones x Regulate), Detroid: Become Human (More Human Than Human), Until Dawn (Wild Night) and Heavy Rain (Streets of Philadelphia). All games are included in PlayStation Plus Extra or Premium. As a reward you will receive the digital representation of a portable cassette recorder from 1982.
It can happen that completed tasks are only recognized by the app after 30 to 60 minutes. So don’t be surprised if you have to wait a little for your collectibles!
No point tasks yet: As of now, there are no ways to earn points towards other rewards, unless you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber who spends in the store. Be it for games, DLCs, films or even microtransactions (e.g. weapon skins in Call of Duty: Warzone).
You will automatically receive a reward: When you register with PlayStation Stars, you will receive a “Stargazing Telescope” as a virtual collector’s figure.
These are the rewards in the points shop
The opportunities to earn points are still very limited, but you can already browse through the bonus shop where you can exchange them. Currently you will find there:
- Three digital collectibles related to Ape Escape (Pink Monkey, Punto and Rummy) for 200 points each
- Sekiro full version for 15,000 points
- Hades full version for 6,250 points

These are the status levels in Germany:
You can also increase your status level in your PlayStation Stars profile, which rewards you with special benefits when you buy full versions of games and unlock rare to ultra-rare trophies. The levels correspond to the previous information from other regions:
- Step 1: You will receive it directly with the registration.
- Level 2: For a purchased full-price game and a Rare, Very Rare, or Ultra Rare trophy, you will receive a special collectible.
- Level 3: For two purchased full-price games and 32 rare, very rare or ultra-rare trophies, you will receive a special collector’s item and a figure from Ape Escape.
- Level 4: For four full-price games purchased and 128 Rare, Very Rare, or Ultra-Rare Trophies, you’ll receive an “Anniversary Collectible” and the ability to skip the line at chat support.

PlayStation Stars Coming Soon: Release, Rewards, Registration and More
A graphic at sign-up shows five empty spaces for the tiers, so an additional tier seems to be held back for the future. We’re excited to see what benefits await in the secret fifth tier. We also hope that there will be many ways to earn points without having a PlayStation Plus subscription and without spending money in the store.
