'allow users to set which trophies are visible''

Why would you want to hide trophies? I suppose if you play Hannah Montanah the movie...

Goro1817d ago (Edited 1817d ago )

The feature seems pointless to me, i think Sony should just allow users to delete 0% completions like Xbox achievements.

President1817d ago

Their trophies will still show up on websites that track them. No worries cheaters, we will still be able to spot you.

Army_of_Darkness1817d ago

Useless feature if you ask me. Only because i barely ever bother looking at my trophies...
Im begining to really dislike going to the ps store cause it seems to get slower and slower after every update....

abzdine1817d ago

great improvement, especially the wifi transfer!
thumbs up sony

ShinMaster1817d ago (Edited 1817d ago )

You can hide those 0% Trophies now...

It'll be a pretty handy feature when Senran Kagura Burst hits North America, assuming you can use it on Vita...

Goro1817d ago

It's been available on Vita for a few months now.

KonsoruMasuta1817d ago

Senran Kagura Burst is for 3DS exclusively. The Vita already has a Senran Kagura game. Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus, it was never released in the west though.

KonsoruMasuta1816d ago

Disagrees for stating the truth? Wow.

PirateThom1817d ago

When you have games you've maybe played once and got 0 trophies in.

JimmyLmao1817d ago

but we will still be able to see it? it is just others that won't?

i wish we could just erase the game from your account completely

Minato-Namikaze1817d ago

@Jimmy that sounds good until you have a pissed off girlfriend, lol.

I always wanted to hide my Duke Nuken Forever trophy; I played it for 15 min and return. lol

Tapewurm1817d ago

@Sirwut.. Should have given old Duke a chance...not technically the greatest game, but for old nostalgia sake it was worth a run through. Still have my Collector's copy....again...not calling it a great game...just a unique one that will always be remembered for it's lengthy development time and special lineage lol :)..My favorite one is still from the PS1 era... Time to Kill...still have my copy of that as well....both campy games, but I actually enjoyed them.

sashimi1817d ago

Well for games that i barely played @ 1% or 0% and haven't gone back to.

forcefullpower1817d ago

Your just scaredyou don't want us to see you where going to play Barbie's world

HeyImBen111817d ago (Edited 1817d ago )

To hide shitty trophiecollections where you only have a few %. But of course it would be a lot better if you could delete them...

KwietStorm1817d ago

There's a lot of people who have been begging for this feature for years now. Why it's even relevant, I have no clue. Trophies must be serious business to want to hide or delete them. I would much rather have privacy for my actual online status and a damn download history sort/search.

avengers19781816d ago

Download history sort/search would be f--king awesome.

Minimox161816d ago

@ avengers1978

Yeahh That'll be awesome!! :D

BLAKHOODe1817d ago

I like this feature. I've played a TON of games over the years and every time I sync my trophies, it takes FOREVER trying to detect every game I've played. If I can eliminate a bunch from the list, this might speed the process up TONS.

Irishguy951816d ago (Edited 1816d ago )

Yeah it sucks, there is simply no loading whatsoever on Xbox 360 for achievements, no syncing etc. Hope PS4 does that.

FamilyGuy1817d ago (Edited 1817d ago )

I've been wanting this feature so people checking my trophies wouldn't think I have certain games that I put in the system or launched once and then never actually played but are stuck there, forever at 0%.

Hiding is actually a smarter option than deleting them because if deleting was possible then someone in your home or someone you gameshare with could delete all your trophies if they feel like it/are mad at you. They could delete all your save files but you could have those backed up on a usb drive, trophies can't be backed up.

Rageanitus1817d ago

just put a PW on deleting your trophy!

Y_51501817d ago

I've always hated the fact every time someone would look at my trophies they'll see a game I hated. So hiding the games would make myself feel better in a way. :P

Rageanitus1817d ago (Edited 1817d ago )

I want to delete my trophies!.
Some games I only played a bit and don't care much

But then again trophies are useless in the long run so Im not too concerned

TXIDarkAvenger1817d ago

Pretty sure people wanted that because they have incomplete games. I for one have games on my PS3 that I don't own and don't plan on buying. More of a feature for people who care about their trophies.

SegaSaturn6691817d ago

If you didn't want your boss to know you were platinuming The Last of Us instead of unpacking a meat freezer.

ziggurcat1817d ago

because some people have games that they tried out, but never bothered playing.

it'll be nice to hide the 0% trophy lists.

kupomogli1817d ago

I've got garbage games like Trine 2 on my trophy list for getting it for free on PS+. Atleast this way I can hide all the bs titles I don't want to see while scrolling through my list.

Ps4Console1817d ago

Game telephoned me yesterday with bundle offers for the Ps4 , I went over in August with all my PS3 titles they gave me £770 in store .
Well anyway I was sitting down after coming in from work yesterday when the telephone rang it was Game offering me a Ps4 PSN 1year , plus KillZone & Drive Club I said yes the price a staggering £439 & that leaves me to get all my other Ps4 titles with the money I have over yipee so excited I had to share the news with you .

Gamer19821816d ago

Hiding trophies only helps those who trophy cheat to hide the evidence they have done so.

mark134uk1816d ago

If any wants to know, GAME uk rang me just saying they are only getting 40 of each ps4 buddles and as im a launch pre order owner i can have 1 (if i get there fast that is)

didnt know where else to post it :)

gintoki7771816d ago

Finally, gotta go hide all my embarrassing gaming achievements.

Christopher1816d ago

It's one of the most asked for features, though.

People want to hide games with 0 trophies tied to them, it seems.

Everybody wants to get home and play GTA Online and the Beyond demo? Time for an update!

MysticStrummer1817d ago

Ha ha Yeah and watch the update cause problems with GTA5. Oh man... that would be some seriously bad PR for PSN right about now.

xHeavYx1817d ago

I hate how long it takes to upd... Oh, finished, back to gaming

SeraphimBlade1817d ago

Yeah, I know, it will take like five minutes. It's just a little funny they put a mandatory update out the day of probably the biggest online event of the year.

nolifeking1817d ago

Its not like anyone can play it anyway. R* has to sort things out on their end before an update could be a problem.

coolasj1817d ago

That Vita one is the best.

yewles11817d ago

WHY is no-one talking about auto downloads for updates no longer requiring PS+ with this?

Yo Mama1817d ago

I know. And also "Auto download support of purchases made on the Web Store will be made available to all PSN users." I'm sorta mad at that. Those were two things I justified my PS+ membership with. Now everyone gets it. Kinda not fair. Maybe they're going to replace it with other features?

Drekken1817d ago

The free games don't justify it? You still get cloud saves.

Sarick1817d ago (Edited 1817d ago )

because this is the way it should've been. This design actually supports Sony's BEST INTEREST.

It insures customers get the latest software updates and makes quick patches available. This helps with both security, DRM and software exploit fixes.

I have mine turned off I'm very happy with manual updates. The option to enable it includes all PS software not just the firmware. Having it on allows open modification of my system files without discretion. I hope Sony keeps the option to disable auto-updates on my end available.

Jac5al1816d ago

Game patches are still ps+ only.

PickAShoe1817d ago

It very cool. I had my Boarderlands data corrupted on my local drive. I'm glad the cloud was there to backup my save.
