Next Tuesday, October 23rd, we will be releasing a new system software update for PlayStation 3 (version 4.30). With this update we have made several changes to how Trophies are displayed on your PlayStation 3
"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
or Hanna Montana for that matter. ;p
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.
@Snookies 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.
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.
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)
@Snookies "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%. etc. 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.
Well well, if this dosn't send Vita sales skyrocketing I dont know what will.
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.
I remember when updates use to be exciting :/
I notice "Ttavel the Solar system". Think they meant to put "travel". :P
they do say at the bottom that those games do not exist and are not representative of psn/ps3 games
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.
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.
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.
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
ill miss the life programs watching the lighted up earth was restfull wish thed keep it :(
I turn on 'life' alot :)
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.
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'
Life sure is rough for you...
1st world problems are a b$%ch!
It takes you 30 minutes to update your ps3 ? Sucks to be you... Mines is always less than 5 minutes.
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
Or of you have PS+ it does that shit automatically and its done and ready to play when I get home.
Cool story bro.
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.
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..
Stop your incessant whining
Dry your tears
lmfao its been so long since the last update, let alone major update. The minor ones take no more than 3 or 4 minutes to download and install.
You expecting backwards compatibility when Sony said is not happening? LOL!!! And it takes you 30 min for an update? Wow dude your PS3 must be all kinds of screwed up.
Easy Kratos...so much anger! Seems misplaced. Did you get reprimanded by your eight bosses today? Sure an update might be a little inconvenient, but 30 minutes really isn't that important unless you have to get back to your lab to check on your cold fusion or phase 3 human cloning trials. Deleting some trophies is a useful feature I like. I don't deal with a lot of patches and updates because I have PS+ and it auto-updates daily for me. Try that if an update makes you so angry.
I keep hearing about people not having BC....mine has it...doesn't your?
I've never seen this many disagrees... it's a beautiful thing. I guess Sony should only update their software when it's convenient to you? I can see it now... Kaz runs into Sony HQ, "Guys, caseh didn't buy a PS Vita! Stop developing all updates pertaining to it and any other thing that will be inconvenient to caseh!" Grow up, you aren't the center of the universe. You aren't the sun, you're Pluto.
Dude don't insult Pluto, he has it hard enough when he was told he is no longer a planet...or dog...I forget which
What's the point of moving the trophies? They are fine where they are. It's just going to feel awkward now.
Dragon zord! Doo do do doo do dooooo
We need to find teenagers to save the world. Fuck adults with modern weapons
vita trophies huh? cool.. cant complain about that
I recently went on Life with Playstation, and I was surprised to see that there were people still "folding"... I myself put in about a day or so, to finish 8 units good thing it was all for a good cause, I wonder if the next gen consoles will support a "Folding @ Home" application... Everyone putting in a little, computing power to find a cure... Sweet.
Vita trophies - Yay! [email protected] - Aww, it's sad to see it go.
Sick! The Platty's will be seen!
Will this allow me to download more RAM?
You should be happy that it doesn't. I mean, i'm sure the last thing that you want is the Wii U to look even more outdated than it actually is, by making the PS3 more powerful.
I wasn't even going for the " Power race". I was just joking. I don't care for your silly power war. I play and enjoy games for what they are.
damn! RAM maker must be pissed off now that RAM can already be pirated! /s
Neat, though its easier to see trophies just on my vita but its good to have another option. To be honest, never tried that [email protected] thing but i did hear about the good it was bringing.
When does "Ttavel the Solar System" come out? It looks good.
Pfft. Plute Attacks/Pluto Attacsk looks better.
LMAO, nice catch dude, they screwed up the spelling twice hahahahaaaa XD
I want the Black XMB default background color back!!!!
I always wondered what happened to the black back ground, They could at least add an "Black" colour choice for the background, Regardless love the news on the update, My lil bro will be well chuffed!.
Theme settings - Colour "White" Theme Settings - Background - Brightness -5 Not perfectly black, but definitely closer than not black.
PS Vita trophies will be shown on the PS3 eh.. That may just be the final push I need to get a Vita, :D! Happy Days!
AHAHAAHHA!!! Someone actually disagreed with your comment. Here have an agree to balance things out. I also think it's neat to see trophies like that so it's ok..... right? *rushes to cover from the disagreer*
I returned the love bro! Who knows who goes around being all negative, Feel sorry for the chap.. truly do, Besides we have good news, feck the haters. We're Gamers \m/
Why even update the PS3 if it doesnt add any new features we really want... I hate when companies troll their customer base!
because I don't think I'm the only want wanting Vita trophies to be shown on PS3 too! damn...people are so selfish sometime!
they are probably just sad because they dont have a vita. I dont really care about seeing my vita trophies on my ps3 but it is nice to have and I would never complain about it like some do, even if I didnt have a VITA. Well witwolf there are tons of things added through FW for ps3 that I dont use, you dont see any of us crying about it.
Ahhhhhhhh I was hoping for cross game chat!!! (sarcasm) people still want that cross chat doodah ? Looool are trophies really that important? Strange people
This is a good sign. Hopefully this means when PS4 comes out that you will retain your trophies from PS3 and PS Vita. Because if we were to lose those trophies...........
Awesome! And just in time for the Vita's Instant Game Collection that is suppose to be out in November.
