Maybe that's why they have beta tests. Or maybe there's another reason we won't be rewarded for our PlayStation-related efforts in April.
Several readers have sent us an e-mail they recently received from the PlayStation Network. It thanks them for participating in the PlayStation Rewards Beta, which is scheduled to end this week in March 31. But based on the results of this test, it seems the new Rewards system has been delayed until further notice:
"Based on what we learned, we have decided the program is not ready to roll out to the public in April as originally planned. But rest assured, we will continue to thank loyal and devoted customers like you with innovative offerings."
That's disappointing, but Sony tries to compensate by sending out "a special and exclusive PlayStation T-shirt" to all those who reach Select, Pro or Legendary status by the beta end date. …okay, that's not the kind of Reward we were hoping for, but at least we won't get a broken program. As many have stated in the past, this is the kind of thing that will make Sony fans even happier to call themselves PlayStation followers.
We'll let you know when they decide to issue an update.
