Playstation 3 Marvel Vs Capcom Origins Has 13 Fewer Achievements/Trophies Than Xbox 360 Version

"So my friend IMs me with something VERY interesting. Apparently the Playstation 3 version of the recently released Capcom fighter Marvel vs Capcom Origins has fewer trophies (achievements on the Xbox) than the Xbox version." (Marvel vs. Capcom Origins, PS3, Xbox 360)

Pretty simple explanation, there is a limit on the amount of trophies/gamerscore that can be allocated to the game. Now with the PS3 there are only 3 classifications, Bronze, Silver and Gold. However with the gamerscore they can assign what they like to an achievement (5, 10, 15, 100 etc) It seems Capcom just hit the PSN game trophy limit :)

Interesting...

I call BS
Looking at the full list of achievements... that is a fairly short list.
I've played PS3 games with twice the number of Trophies.

Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum Trophy values have nothing to do with it.
Trophy limit my ass!

Doesn't Uncharted 3 have like 100 trophies? Trophy limit my ass. Capcom is just being lazy.

Well yeah that's an exclusive game. Of course Naughty Dog would implement as many Trophies as they can and Sony will allow the max amount of Trophy's.

As far as this is concerned looks like Sony has trophy limits just like how MS had achievement limit. Until MS updated it for increased Achievement support for digital games.

This isn't the first time Capcom has given PS3 users the short end in terms of achievements.
Resident Evil 4 HD and Resident Evil Code: Veronica HD both have 1000 achievement points on 360 but do not have platinum trophies on PS3.

You're right about that, but Capcom could have just included more bronze trophies instead of one silver or gold.

There is no trophy limit. Look at games that get DLC and they also include trophies in them. If a dev want's they could put 100 trophies in a game. It's up to them.
Dark_Overlord  +   651d ago
The base game has a limit, then each DLC that is added has a trophy limit of its own, read my post below if you don't believe me :)

To the multiple uninformed disagreers, YES THERE IS A TROPHY LIMIT ON GAMES. This is a PSN release and as such has the most trophies that there are allowed. Even retail games have a trophy limit. Read this forum post for a more detailed description

http://www.ps3trophies.org/...

Notice how no base retail game goes over 1230 points (as they are referred to in the post) or no PSN game goes over 315? THAT IS DUE TO SONYS LIMITS! Without those restrictions, whats to stop a game giving out 500 gold trophies?

Certain PSN games do offer a platinum, however it is not certain what criteria they have to meet to offer this. (Usually bigger budget games though)

Also with each DLC pack they are allowed to add a certain amount more trophies

EDIT - Plus the article confirms what I said

“My colleague (...) sent me your email, as I’m the PR lead for MvC Origins. The answer to your question is that for Marvel vs. Capcom Origins, we maxed out achievements and trophies that are available for a title on each platform. The cap varies by platform.”

It's part of Capcom's stradegy.
They'll offer the trophies as DLC for €5 each.
Or maybe they'll add the trophies in the Marvel vs. Capcom Super Origins or Marvel vs. Capcom Ultimate Origins editions.
Oh wait, i know what they're doing!
They're saving the trophies for the Marvel vs. Capcom Super Ultimate Origins edition.

*sigh*

Please dont tell me people are going to start arguing over who has the best/most trophies/achievements now.

This is taking one-upsmanship to an absurd level.

Especially when you consider my kung-fu is much stronger than yours.

If it makes you guys feel any better. They're practically the same game on different consoles...

People have a thing for getting all "hoop-la" over virtual trophies. Play for the fun, not the swag!

Also, isn't having less trophies a good thing? You can get them out of the way faster so that you can have more fun just playing the game for what it is :)
