"Trophies that you have earned playing PlayStation Vita games are now displayed on your PlayStation 3."

finally, though I'm not to sure about the new placement. I know the game tab needs cleaning up, but trophies seems more game related then network (though both go together)

I really hope they sneak in the ability to show logged in for PS Vita users when on PS3. Example, when I play all-star on my vita I appear offline for my PS3 friends who are also playing it.

and lol at all those fake game names

I'm happy they will show up now. The few platinums I do have from my Vita don't show and I hate it when I get a message saying they don't show up on my list when checked on the PS3.

They said 15 million people used Life and about 100 million hours went into it. I used it a few times, but didnt know it was going towards a good cause.

This is one of the updates that is making an improvement and not just a update to block piracy. Good on Sony.

This is good to show that our PS3 trophies won't be obsolete and pointless once the PS4 comes out.

I haven't been playing much lately, but I started losing some interest in going after trophies if they aren't going to carry over to PS4, 5, etc.

They still need to come up with a system to delete trophies you don't want though. Just make sure there's multi-step verification to log in and makes changes.

@EeJLP - LOL! Why wouldn't you want certain trophies? Unless you're playing some crazy import Japanese 18+ game. XD

boybato1761d ago

or Hanna Montana for that matter. ;p

pixelsword1761d ago

I don't like that I'll have a tab for Vita games because I never plan on owning a Vita. I hope you have the option of turning it off.

lsujester1761d ago


I like the idea of being able to delete trophies. Not that there's anything I want to hide from everyone, but to tidy up. There are several where I just didn't like the game, but I had earned a trophy or two before quitting. I'd like the option to delete that just to clean up my list.

KUV19771761d ago

The same here. Deleting a set wit 0% or 1% would be great or the ones from 1-hour-full-trials. Doesn't bother me too much though.

blitz06231761d ago

The reason you don't show up on the PS3 when you're logged in the Vita is because you can sign in the PS3 while you're signed in the Vita. I tested it. I was playing PS All-stars on the Vita, then logged in my PS3 at the same time to see if it would show me playing the game (it didn't - it only shows your PS ID with no game being played like usual)

EeJLP-1761d ago (Edited 1761d ago )

"Why wouldn't you want certain trophies?"

Free Realms (which was supposed to be a demo), added itself to the trophies list.

MLB 10: The Show, which I played for about 3 minutes and is 0% on my list.

Ragdoll Kung Fu was a free download back in the day that I barely tried and I think is 0%.


I want to be able to try games without them being on my trophy list and without having to switch to a different profile just to try a game.

'This is good to show that our PS3 trophies won't be obsolete and pointless once the PS4 comes out.'

Yea, i wasn't really fussed on PS3 trophies coming over to the PS4 but if they are separated by name then i guess it won't be so bad.

FINALLY! Expelling news.

andibandit1761d ago

Well well, if this dosn't send Vita sales skyrocketing I dont know what will.

TronEOL1762d ago

I can understand why they placed it under the PSN selection. The game tab is incredibly crowded. I feel it'll be easier to go between everything when it's changed.

Anyhow, I'm pretty happy they're still slightly modifying the PS3's features. Hopefully there are more interesting changes to come. Really stoked for the Playstation Store upgrade.

IAmLee1762d ago

I remember when updates use to be exciting :/

tigertron1761d ago

I notice "Ttavel the Solar system". Think they meant to put "travel". :P

Blackdeath_6631761d ago

they do say at the bottom that those games do not exist and are not representative of psn/ps3 games

oricon1761d ago

Sony needs a feature where i can disable trophies if i dont want to collect them so that when i launch a game the game doesn't have to check for trophy data.

oricon1761d ago

Also to add to that once you platinum a game the game shouldn't have to check for trophy data when you launch a game thus speeding up the start up process of the game, but main thing i would like the option to disable trophies since i don't care for them, don't think it should be a mandatory feature.

GraveLord1761d ago

But trophies aren't stored on your PS3, so it only makes sense that they show up on the Network tab. They are ties to your PSN ID.

Hopefully this update also makes trophy syncing faster.

Nitrowolf21761d ago

Yes they are stored on your PS3.
The PSN Sync is just so you have a back-up of it.
Someone who has absolutely no access to PSN can still earn trophies.

Player card/level are psn base though

I turn on 'life' alot :)

sorceror1711761d ago

Yeah, if I need to charge up my controllers I kick off LWP and leave 'em plugged in when I go to bed. They get charged and some hopefully-useful computation gets done.

caseh1762d ago

Christ, another 30 mins of my life wasted for an update that has no relevence to me whatsoever. Should be able to opt out of updates that do f*ck all other than add a feature for a minority of its userbase.

How about something functional like backward compatability to make up for the hours/days of my life wasted while the PS3 updates to 'fix problems with games crashing although we will supply NO DETAIL as to what these fixes are'

insomnium21762d ago

Life sure is rough for you...

Campy da Camper1762d ago

1st world problems are a b$%ch!

AdmiralSnake1762d ago

It takes you 30 minutes to update your ps3 ? Sucks to be you... Mines is always less than 5 minutes.

Hellsvacancy1761d ago

I know right, I went on the PS Store last night, was greeted with a 13mb update, I had to sit there for 20 seconds whilst it updated, never gonna get that time back

Agent_00_Revan1761d ago

Or of you have PS+ it does that shit automatically and its done and ready to play when I get home.

caseh1762d ago

Oh i'm sorry, I must have missed the part where the entire PS3 install base went out and bought the Vita...

Its either that or you welcome updates that fail to add meaningful features.

moparful991762d ago

How about the fact that you are ranting over nothing? Nobody else complains about updates and why throw a fit when Sony is showing the desire to continually improve the ps3 despite the fact that we are nearing the end of the generation? If this is the biggest problem in your life then you honestly have nothing to complain about..
