It’s not the first time Sony has tried something like this, but as a team that wins does not move … Looks like it’s time to do it again! After all, the company is now offering between $100 and $50,000 to anyone who finds bugs on the PS4 or Playstation Network. Since the value offered will depend heavily on the complexity of the error.
That said, it looks like Sony is trying to get its platform as tidy and organized as possible to welcome the new generation by the end of the year. Can you imagine a PS5 that barely hits the market is soon ‘pirated’? It was beautiful to see, and actually happened to PSP many years ago.
That’s why Sony will “bribe” hackers so that they can find the various weaknesses in their ecosystem, and report them to you instead of playing games on the Internet.
Sony offers between $100 and $50,000 to anyone who finds bugs on PS Network!
Therefore, as we mentioned at the beginning of the article, there are several types of rewards, depending on the bug found. Since the reward value increases when the severity of the error encountered is high, and who knows, it may even compromise in a way the platform itself.
In the meantime, Sony will control this rewards program through HackerOne. Platform that has several well-known companies around the world, such as Twitter, Uber, Snapchat, PayPal etc… And that actually do exactly the same as Sony is doing right now.
Having said all this, if the bug found is related only to PSN, then the reward will be between $400 and $3000. However, if the bug found happens to impact the PS4 system, then the rewards can already reach $10,000 or even exceed this amount.
In short, if you happen to know the subject, like to help, and likes to receive even more. Think carefully about what you may gain by identifying and revealing these bugs to Sony or any other company you know about.
