Sony has made it where your many hours playing games on your PS3 and Vita were tangibly worth something in a series of auctions dubbed … “Bid for Greatness”…
The catch is that once you bid trophies, they are committed, and you can’t use them on anything else, so you have to be smart. However, this does not mean that you actually lose you trophies. You still keep the trophies you bid, you just can’t keep using them over an over to pad your odds of winning. After all, you still have to have some salt to rub on your friends wounds.
The list of scheduled auctions and a video showing off the items are below.
