Sony Rewards accepts PlayStation Store into its point-y heart

Sony Rewards now extends to PlayStation products and the PlayStation Store, allowing players to earn points for game-related purchases. For every dollar spent in the PlayStation Store, you earn one point – after linking your PSN account to a Sony Rewards account.

Earn points by purchasing a Sony thing through online third-party retailers such as Gamestop or Best Buy too, when shopping through the Points Plus site. Points can be redeemed for Sony stuff through Sony Rewards.

This is a different approach than the PlayStation Rewards program that Sony ditched in 2011, which was a step-child of PlayStation Plus rather than an integrated points system.
