Static theme(99% chance it has default sounds), crappy avatars, it's a shame they can't just bring back those 15% or even a 10% off code. 1 dynamic theme that will probably just be a glorified rotating wallpaper, again with more than likely default sounds. What a MEH promotion. The only good prize is the top prize.

I miss their old promotion site, where you could "win" 20% off PSN store for just watching some crappy videos or clicking around, I'm not sure why they've gotten so stingy.

If you're going to make a big stink out of an event, give gamers something we can get excited about. Making a fuss over a very limited prize and some crappy themes isn't painting a very promising picture as we head towards PS5 for consumers. This is very disappointing and we should expect more, especially because the company did more with 0 fanfare about a year ago, there were emails(that few people received) giving out 20% off PSN purchases, there was even a period where it happened almost week after week, the site where you had to watch some crappy videos to get 20% off vouchers repeated that a few times every other month.

This is probably so Sony will get some stat of concurrent users for a PS5 press conference to make the PS4 use more impressive, OR something to do with investors.

At least Canada isn't excluded from the raffle.


EDIT: As predicted the "Dynamic" theme is merely scrolling wallpaper with DEFAULT sounds, Scrolling up shows the picture in the screenshot, otherwise the main screen is just a bunch of wallpapers fading in and out very quickly. At leas the icons are nice, Sony really needs to allow us to chose icons and sounds that we want, not tying them to themes.

Themes and Avatars no one will ever use.
Games that 90% chance people already own, especially since 2 have been given free in psplus already.

Yep, top prize is the only worthwhile part of this and with chances so slim I can't even be bothered to sign up.
Sony really failed to give us anything to be excited over, or strive to push for.

Signed up last night. That's a lot of gameplay that I'm not used too.

I signed up. It sounds pretty... Intense? Country-wide goals or something you earn by getting trophies when you play? Still signed up and hoping to win something decent, thanks OP.
But I hear what people are saying, a 10-20% off coupon is better than avatars, themes, a possible Greatest Hits game, because you could apply it to purchase of your choice. But as people keep saying about Sony, you don't need to try so hard when you're winning...
c'mon get happy! :cheesygri

Am I missing something, or does this belong in Freebies or Contests or the Video Games subforums instead of Hot Deals?

I just don't understand how avatars and skins got so big? I play Battlefield mainly and it's crazy how intense people got about skins for guns --- that don't affect any outcomes and no one else sees. People for this shit makes no sense.

LOL someone is going to get fired? Maybe they realized this was an awful promotion after all?

These appear(from the screenshots) to be the "rewards" for all the gameplay?!

EDIT: Links are working at the time of posting.

Thanks! Added to my account. Big fail on Sony's part. I agree with what you've said about it being all gimmicky.

I basically gave up on their newsletter & codes. It shouldn't be that difficult to get e-mails if I've specifically subscribed to receive them etc etc. And I've had an account since 2008.

I agree with you. Skins and outfits, especially on a first-person shooter just boggles my mind. I will say....the obsession did lead COD: MW to have a free season pass so I am not complaining.

My thoughts on it now, is that skins were never meant to be the cash cow they became, people were used to getting them for free, but when big money got their hands on games and had to struggle for "growth" because all big money wants is MORE MONEY or you're failing if you meet instead of exceed your previous goals. So they tried canabalizing different parts to see how far they could push, and they received VERY LITTLE pushback from paygating maps, but for some reason most games have new maps for free(thankfully) but they realized that with this new generation of gamers customization is a BIG DEAL, maybe it has to do with how "Influencers" stress how cool skins are or something, I'm not 100% on that. But it's the push that the industry gave gamers, and not enough pushed back on this one.
