Sony's Quest for Greatness Promotion Offers Three Free PSOne Games

by Adam Pavlacka on Nov. 26, 2013 @ 12:57 a.m. PST

At the heart of PS3 is the Cell Broadband Engine, one of the most advanced computer processors in the world, that enables massive floating point calculation, and Blu-ray Disc (BD) drive, providing a High Definition (1080p) next-generation gaming and movie experience in the home, as well as up to 50 GB of data capacity.

If you're willing to spend 5-10 minutes exploring a special PS4 promotional area in PlayStation Home, you can earn digital copies of the following games: Destruction Derby, Twisted Metal and Warhawk.

All three games are playable on the PS3, as well as the PSP and PS Vita systems. In addition to the games, you will also get the following rewards for PS Home:

  • Greatness Awaits Force Shield
  • Killzone Shadow Fall T-Shirt
  • Knack Statue
  • PlayStation Console Replica
  • PlayStation Controller Replica
  • PlayStation Light Up Gloves
  • PlayStation Light Up Hoodie
  • PlayStation 4 Replica
  • Twisted Metal Sweet Tooth Ice Cream Truck Companion

Follow this step-by-step video to claim the games (and PS Home rewards) for yourself.

If you can't view the video, we've detailed the necessary steps below.

Getting Started

Before you can start the Quest for Greatness and collect your free games, you'll first need to start PS Home and enter the PS4 Experience. If you haven't yet visited the PS4 Experience, PS Home should automatically start up in that location. If it doesn't, simply relocate yourself via the menu.

Once in the PS4 Experience, walk up to the oversized Vita and press X to launch the Quest for Greatness. This brings you into a separate instance of the PS4 Experience. Talk to the man next to the Vita one more time to kick off a scavenger hunt for 13 different PlayStation cards.
