Sony Offers Rewards for Convincing Friends to Buy the PS Vita

Posted by at 11:43 am on January 28, 2013

PS Vita RewardSony is continuing to think up new ways to try and boost sales of the PS Vita handheld. Last year it was confirmed there would be no price drop on the hardware until later in 2013. At the same time, Sony rolled out a new bundle to try and revitalize sales as well as considering a PS3/PS Vita bundle, which has yet to materialize.

A new offer has appeared, though. Sony is offering a $20 PSN card and 1,000 Sony Rewards points to anyone who convinces a friend to buy a PS Vita. All you have to do is Register with Sony, which involves giving them your name, email address, and PSN ID. After that, you can start referring people and Sony will handle the rest. As an added incentive, Sony is offering one million Sony Rewards points to whoever refers the most people during the promotion.

The offer is open now and runs until February 28, giving you exactly a month to convince your friends and family to spend a few hundred dollars on a PS Vita. There are a few important rules and restrictions related to this promotion, however. The $20 PSN card is limited as a reward for the first 10 people you refer and who purchase. Meaning the maximum you can earn is $200 and 10,000 points. Getting more than 10 people to buy hardware (who is seriously going to achieve that?) is only worth it if you want to be in with a chance of winning the million points (worth $10,000).

Sony has also put restrictions on how you can communicate the offer to your friends and family. Only email, Facebook, and Twitter messages are allowed as a way of enticing them to purchase a PS Vita. So no running your own advertising campaign to entice hundreds of people you don’t know to use your referral code.
