Konami RPG Stars launched
New site devoted to publisher's line of role-playing games rewards user participation with prizes.
Konami today officially launched Konami RPG Stars, a Web site intended to host an online community of fans for the publisher's various role-playing series, including Suikoden and Ys. By registering with the site and completing various tasks (signing up friends, watching trailers, linking to the site on another message board), players earn "stars" that can be redeemed in the site's online store. Items in the store range from strategy guides (500 stars) to $250 GameStop gift certificates (10,000 stars), with a variety of wall scrolls, games, and art books in between.
