TSA: "Konami has confirmed, via an official press release, the news that MGS 4 will be getting Trophies. There will, apparently, be 34 of them."
After all this waiting, there's not even a full 50? That's a bit disappointing :/
Full 50? There have never been a set amount of trophies for every game, it usually varies. I guess you just can't please everyone though.
Well, no, but for a game that has been out for 4 years, they've had plenty of time to come up with the list. More trophies only means more people playing their game and that can't be a bad thing.
They could have 4trophies, and I'll still go back to play it for the forth time....
Demon's Souls has 38 trophies, yet that never put me off from playing the game or getting the platinum trophy. As long as they are cleverly thought and challenging to some degree, which I think they will be, then it should be absolutely fine by me for it to have 34 trophies.
rofl so now a few still wanna complain despite finally getting something we all wanted and were denied so far ?
Some of you might hate on me for this...but I never beat this game. Bought it day one and never even played 25% of the game. I said I was gonna just wait till a trophy patch to play the game but it never came so I forgot about it and never bothered to play it. Long wait but still Good news for me! lol.
It'll still be 'worth' the same as any other retail game trophy wise, they probably put more gold and silver trophies than bronze :)
the other 16 trophies where for MGO but.... well we know what happened there!
dude you're crazy. I think there's medicine for that.
most of the time, it's 50 when it's a multi platform game. That's because of MS' requirement of putting 1000G per game, many Ps3 exclusive games don't have 50 trophies.
uncharted 1,2,3...bleach,4d dot game heroes,infamous 2,killzone 2, little big planet,heavy rain, infamous are some of the ps3 exclusives that have 50 or more trophies...i own these dont believe me go to ps3trophies.org it will show you the trophy list for every game
You know there is a set amount of points per game? 34 trophies just means that it will have more gold/silver than bronze. I see no problem with this. Besides, it still has a platinum =3 Edit for info: Points---- Bronze: 15 Silver: 30 Gold: 90 Platinum: 180
While true most of the time, the platinum sometimes varies in 'worth'. e.g Say a game has 750 points? of trophy worth, the platinum value then increases to 250. Its kind of hard to explain, but I think this sums it up nicely :) http://www.trophycalculator...
Too little too late?
Don't get the disagrees youve got there tbh. Im a massive fan of the MG series but after playing through MGS4 3 times and trading it in years ago, for me this is waaay too late. The fanbase asked for this for months after release to no avail. Only reason i can see them doing this is to re kindle interest in the series for the next game, not as some kind gesture to the fans because if it were that it would have happened a loooong time ago,
As a MG fan you should be ashamed on your self for trading in mgs4! I have mine from launch xD
you lying... no massive fans ever trade their favorite games
MGS4 is the only one i liked..i'm not a MGS fan. but i held on to my copy. having said that, you can't hold it against a fan because he traded in the game after 3 play-thrus. you don't know his financial situation or any other situation for that matter.
well,disagrees mean that some people probably disagree,eh?:P for cpt.tuttle it's 2 little 2 late,for others it's not.
yea, i know what you mean. im a massive guns n roses fan to, but after listening to a cd 2 or 3 times i usually trade in my cd's aswell
"Don't get the disagrees youve got there tbh." I do get them , there is no such thing as too little too late to support any game , let alone a classic . It's even a good excuse to get the dust of the game
When games cost upwards of £40 this gen considering I played the game multiple times it ended up being left for a while so I thought I'd trade it in so I could play more games. Why keep a game your not using anymore? Im not really the type to hoard things for the sake of having full collections, each to their own. Spydiggity has it right. And I said i was a fan of the series. Now MGS3 is a game I could NEVER trade in, one of the best games I've ever played and I'll go back to it as long as my ps2 is still kicking. Best game of the series imo =)
He could have said a good thing and he would still have the same disagree's.
Too little, too late for what? The game sold over 5 million. What is it late for? People to replay it and get trophies? I doubt it.
If you traded it in because of no trophies your not a MGS Fan I still have my 1998 copy of MGS and that will never get trophies , im glad ill be able to beat it for the 9th time and get trophies too, time to start on MG1 again
Not to sound ungrateful but I was hoping atleast 50.. oh well, enough of being an ungrateful fuck, mgs4 trophies! :D
still now i have a reason to play it over for a third time.
free DLC as well!!!!
For what an online service thats is now offline?
not until next month
I'm actually more pleased with the full install news, no more installing between chapters :)
You should get a platinum for making it through the "plane interludes" without smashing the PS3 or your face. One of my favourite games this gen, but I'm not sure I'll be bothering to go back for the trophies, already played the game to death.
I actually never finished the game, I bought the MGS4 PS3 bundle and was pretty excited, but the games cut scenes dragged on, the installs were crazy and no Trophy support at a time when I was big into Trophy hunting. This is solid news, I can play through the game, install it and get Trophies. Win/win
I was very excited when it released however somewhat skeptical because of the embargo that no reviewer was allowed to talk about the cut scenes or the length of them. I enjoyed MGS4 but I have to be honest, I was actually falling asleep during many, and I do mean many, of the long drawn out dialog scenes where there was no action at all, it was just dialog. The action scenes were really well done and when you did get a chance to play, it was enjoyable for a stealth game. The camo being able to blend in with everything was a really nice feature and had some fun with that. Overall, the game was a bit of a disappointment ONLY because I went into the game extremely over hyped due to the N4G community and the Media. I think I had placed this game so high on a podium that there was no way the game could actually ever achieve the greatness I had set it up to be. From that point on, I never believe the hype train the Sony community here on N4G put into their exclusives. Good game, even greater hype. I still have the game, but doubt I will be revisiting it just for the trophies.
so you fell asleep with the cutscenes right... right... any metal gear fan would not fall asleep. as a matter of fact, im betting you have no ps3. Ofcourse you were "forzaisking" lol. of course you were.../s
You've obviously never played a MGS game prior to 4. All the complaints you have that aren't subjective have been present in every MGS game.
To enjoy this series you really have to play from the beginning. This game really is Story > Gameplay
All MGS games have long cut scenes it's nothing new. The installs were not crazy at all and trophies should have no bearing on finishing a game. MGS4 isn't game you play to get trophies. It's a game you play to experience the masterpiece Kojima has created.
I loved MGS and MGS3, thought MGS2 was okay, I loved all of those games. I didn't enjoy the story in MGS4, the installs were ridiculous. How can you tell me what I enjoy? I'm not the first person who didn't enjoy the game. Its perfectly fine for the majority of gamers to like something and still have some people who don't like it. I'm not trolling, I like PS3, have a PS3, enjoy PS3 games, but MGS4 wasn't my thing. It was the game I bought a PS3 for, and I was highly disappointed.
If I the full install option is only with the re release version of the Im going to get it. But will it be able to read the old data files from my playthroughs with the old copy? aka Old saves? Ive noticed different versions of games cant share files. I borrowed God of war 3 from a friend who bought it where we live, but I bought mine from Play.com and my saves didn't work.
Getting MGS4 trophies late is better than never getting them at all. I've already unlocked everything in MGS4. Trophies will be another challenge for me. I hope they bring back MGOnline. Put it on PSN and it's a buy for me.
nice! it'll be fun playing mgs4 again with those set of trophies
hello everyone, over the years i read so many positive comments for mgs franchise but i never really got into it (the only metal gear solid i have played was peace walker psp demo) and i always wanted to give this series a chance with mgs4 but since it did't have trophies i never bought it, now with the recent news ill probable buy it now but do i need to have played the previous metal gear games? i mean its it required in order to understand the story? or perhaps is it like fallout were the story is connected to each previews game but the plot of the newer game doesn't require to know all the details of the previews. in short, will i enjoy mgs4 without ever playing any of the older games?
You will be somewhat lost if you have not played the others. My recommendation is to play or read about the previous titles. Half of the game's epicness comes the story, so you would be loosing out on a majority of the experience.
If you can't play the other games you should at least watch all the gameplay cutscenes on youtube as the story is well explained through them. It'll probably take a solid day or more to get through all of them though.
As a trophy collector this is good news. I love it when slightly old games like this are still supported.
big boss run is gonna be fun!
I really hope theres no trophy for getting the big boss emblem... Im gonna die trying to get it lol...
