Sony inviting 'Top 1%' to mysterious PlayStation MVP program
I am the 99%. That is, I am not one of the people who received an email from Sony outlining a new, mysterious PlayStation MVPs program -- exclusive to just a select few. Sony is apparently sending out invites to the "top 1% of the PlayStation community" to join "an exciting new program" that hasn't yet been detailed. Invites have begun going out and IGN has posted one sent in from a reader. It reads:
As an avid PlayStation gamer with an impressive trophy collection and a library of games, you represent the top 1% of the PlayStation community. This is why we are inviting you to join an exciting new program created by PlayStation gamers, for PlayStation gamers - the PlayStation MVPs.
PlayStation MVPs are the most highly-engaged members of the PlayStation community. They are experts on everything related to PlayStation and are some of the most influential and important members of the PlayStation Nation. They are the types of players that spend their spare time helping other gamers get their stats up. They run online events on the PlayStation Network. They create game walk-throughs, blog about their favorite games, and support their fellow gamers on places like the official PlayStation forums.
It's people like you that make the PlayStation Nation the best online games community in the world. Please join the PlayStation MVPs by submitting your official application here. We will review your submission within 4-6 weeks and contact you with more details on how to get involved in this exclusive program.
The email links to a website that asks for your birthday before bringing you to the PlayStation MVPs Application. The application then asks you quite a few questions, which actually give us a good idea for what this program will be used for. The most intriguing questions ask "if you have participated , or hosted, online video gaming events in the past" or "if you create videos or podcasts related to online video gaming."
Given the PlayStation 4's social capabilities with a feature to stream live gameplay, I'd imagine this program will be used to spotlight the PlayStation MVPs. What do you think this PlayStation MVPs program will be used for?
