So, what does Sony or Microsoft give you after spending $600 on their games?

Absolutely nothing. Just be glad Nintendo actually rewards their fanbase with something that they don't HAVE to do. I can only imagine the whining if Nintendo were to discontinue Club Nintendo rewards.

Sony has Sony Rewards which offers a wide range of physical and digital multimedia devices and software. Microsoft has Xbox Live Rewards, though for that one you basically have to buy all digital.

I'll tell you right now, I didn't spend $600 to get Platinum. Any good shopper knows how to spend significantly less.

Microsoft one year sent me a code to save $.25 for my birthday.

So you could say they have a better loyalty program.

I just wait for sales on XBL or see whats GWG are offering. Doesn't really cost me a dime and certainly not $600.

Xbox live rewards are terrible. I have been on xbox live since the 360 came out, have a ton of digital purchases, games, dlc, etc. I had been gold for 95% of the time i owned the console. What did i get? Like $2.00 worth of ms points.

Though games with gold was a sweet program. But ps3 and ps+ had it beat.

Just ordered a PS4 so im curious to see what the sony rewars program looks like.

Nintendos is good though other regions get better swag. Im just happy we get something for buying games I already buy.

Sony gives me 60 free games a year, Nintendo gives me ~5 a year.

I don't think this is a fair comparison.

Like most are saying, games with gold offers free games every month, and PS+ also gives free games every month. So by my math, for $60 and $50 I get free games all year without spending $600
