Sony will trade sweet PS4 game clips for swag

Sometimes you're just sitting at home, dialed into your favorite online game, when suddenly you pull off a ridiculous play that makes you feel like a closet professional. It's only natural to want to broadcast your moments of genius, which the PlayStation 4 makes incredibly easy thanks to the DualShock 4's dedicated Share button. While cool points are great and all, Sony's announced it's also going to start rewarding these multiplayer feats with swag. Each month, Sony will set Brits a selection of challenges across three games, with prizes awarded for the best shared clips.

These #PLUSMOMENTS will be showcased on a dedicated site, with Uncharted 4, FIFA 16 and Call of Duty: Black Ops III this month's chosen games. All you need to do is get a sweet headshot or insane volley goal while playing online and upload proof to YouTube, including a note of your PSN ID as well as a couple of required hashtags. Potential prizes this month include a three-month PS Plus voucher, a DualShock controller, a Juggernog mini-fridge for CoD submissions, and signed Uncharted 4 artwork specifically for that game's challenges.

While the monthly competitions are only available in the UK for now, Sony has a habit of rolling things out in specific regions before expanding them elsewhere, so it might not be exclusive for long. And remember Brits, you might wanna think about using the new features in Sharefactory to try and sway the judges with a lovingly edited clip... of you blowing someone's face off.
