Trophies – Overview

Starting from tomorrow were all going to have the opportunity to begin the trophy hunting. It’s all very exciting and excellent news for us PS3 devotees and fanboy fanatics. So without a further-a-do, here’s all you need to know!


Trophy Unlocked – REPLAY

Lets get the bad news out of the way first. Announced shortly after the release of the trophy walkthrough video, a Q&A list popped up on the Playstation blog. It listed all the cans and cant’s of trophy support, but one of the cant’s is a pretty big one. For those of us that have completed Metal Gear Solid 4 on Big Boss and reached 100% on GTAIV, it seems that effort may have been wasted. You will have to play through the whole game again – just to earn those Trophy points. Understandably, they allowed this to stop people downloading game saves off the interent but if they had incorporated game saves specific to user I.D. we wouldn’t have to do everything all over again.

At first I was pretty gutted about it all as I was expecting a fair few points once I download the new firmware, but after I got over the initial devastation it made me realise that all those games I had that had been un-touched for a few months were going to become there monies worth – again.


“You didn’t do that….oh, yeah – you did.”

How often has a friend said something along the lines of “Yeah man, just completed MGS in 1 hour and 10 minutes. Bet you haven’t!” ? Thankfully, you will now know for certain wether or not they were lying. Thanks to the wonders that be, we’ll also be able to compare our trophies to what the people on our friends list have unlocked. Bragging rights abound and plenty of races to the end of the game will hopefully mean a bit more communication between you and those folks on your friends list.

This will be really helpfull to those in a clan who need to prove to there rivals they’re not to be messed. Competition is a beautiful thing!
