You Can Now Use PlayStation Stars Points To Buy Destiny 2 Currency

Something new to spend them on!

Since the PlayStation Stars reward program launched just over a year ago, it’s mostly been all about challenging players to fire up particular games or score specific trophies in exchange for a whole range of themed digital collectibles – including that adorable Shuhei Yoshida bobblehead – but the offerings of actual digital games and content that players can redeem with their banked-up points has been a little less exciting.

Now though, it seems like PlayStation’s in the early stages of updating its PlayStation Stars rewards with the first new addition in a hot minute – a bundle of 500 Destiny 2 Silver in-game currency worth $7.55 and costing 1,250 points, which is decidedly better than the 2000 points it currently costs for $8 of PlayStation Store credit if you were to do it that way.

Feel more with PS5. Beyond the everyday. Beyond extraordinary. Even beyond imagination. Feel it now.

What’s interesting about this though, more so than the fact that you can now drop your hard-earned reward points on virtual currency for Destiny 2, is that we know that PlayStation is gearing up for a big push into live service games, which could point to this being a cheeky little test for whether users are willing to rack up points for their virtual spending to then spend said points on more virtual stuff.

We could very well see PlayStation Stars, a service that until now hasn’t made a whole lot of impact, deeply entrenched into PlayStation’s live service ecosystem as it continues its foray into monetising the hell out of its stable of uber-popular IP.
