Man... I hope they're not blowing smoke about this patent. It would be amazing to have trophies for FF VII, and Resistance Fall of Man would be begging for another play through.

I just played through Resistance:FOM on christmas. Split-screen co-oped it with a couch buddy lol, still as fun as ever. I'm really hoping Sony keep Resistance1 in mind if this patent moves forward. If Heavenly Sword and Assassin's Creed would get trophy support aswell,,, then i would be one happy blonde.

Resistance Fall of Man needs trophies !

kreate1673d ago

Than I should stop playing classics or old ps3 games until this feature is implemented.

Metal Gear Solid 4 anyone?

KwietStorm1673d ago

..? It already has trophies. Am I misunderstanding what you're saying?

MariaHelFutura1673d ago

I literally was going to write that exact same sentence.

When he reads this reply, his embarrassment will be 100% undertaken by his happiness. Lol

pansenbaer1672d ago

This guy gets it. Sorry guys, I guess I'm not as in the loop as I used to be :(

shoddy1673d ago

Great incentive to play old games again.

My trophies level 11.

I'm guessing Sony also use this to making sure you actually earned the trophies you have. I've seen a few dubious trophy list's with 100%'s. A lot of them had time stamps that didn't match up.

Who knows maybe this has something to do with ps4 & Gaikai, ps3 or both.

InMyOpinion1673d ago

They need a patent to do that?

MariaHelFutura1673d ago

You need a patent to do anything in corporate land.

kingPoS1673d ago (Edited 1673d ago )

You'd be surprised how broken the patent system is. Sometimes you need a patent just so you can operate under on your own principle.

guitarded771673d ago

Damned lawyers make it so.

Apple has a patent on the angular appearance of the corners around not only the square app icons in their GUI, but the shape of their iPad itself. Patent...on a shape. Yea.

kreate1673d ago (Edited 1673d ago )

And thats how samsung got pwned .... whose next?

I wish I could of patented the 'circle'and 'square' shape.
