PlayStation.Blog Writes: "Now I know I'm biased with all my PixelJunk love, but seriously…this is one outstanding, addictive, gorgeous, amazing game. So I just wanted to take a moment here and mention some of the really cool "firsts" that the team has achieved with this title, and highlight some of the things that we really love about it."

Hopefully there will be more secret silver and gold trophies.

Rofflecopter3709d ago

i doubt it. i believe that sony puts a limit on the trophies PSN games can have (no gold/platinum i believe). no matter what, this game is a must buy after playing the demo!

I was pretty sure the only way to get a platinum trophy was by getting all the other trophies first. This game is amazing, though, and I can't wait to download it tomorrow.

They can have gold. Super Stardust HD has two golds. SSHD had 17 trophies. PJE has 20. They could have capped the limit, I don't know. Judging by the way the trophy list looks I'd say so. If it does have hidden trophies (which they can), you can tell by getting all the trophies and looking at your completion level. If it's not 100%, then you know there are some hidden trophies.

Also, small scale PSN games can't have platinum trophies.

No platinum. Gold, they can have, but no platinum.

The thing is, under the hood there's a point system for the different levels of trophies. A PSN game can only have so much upon release, and then so much for an add-on. PJ Eden clearly needed more trophies. More trophies = lower levels for each one.

That's why PJE w/o any expansion has 20 different trophies, while SSDHD only had 12.

*Let me do a further breakdown:

SSDHD: 7 Bronze, 4 Silver, One Gold
PJE - 19 Bronze, One Silver
SSDHD 1st expansion - 2 Bronze, 2 Silver
SSDHD 2nd expansion - One Gold

Now, let's apply a point value for each one, for argument's sake.

We'll say Bronze = 1, Silver = 2, and Gold = 6. Let's look at it keeping that in mind.

SSDHD - 21
PJE - 21
SSDHD 1st expansion - 6
SSDHD 2nd expansion - 6

That make sense?

Edit: Added the breakdown.

ATLRoAcH3709d ago

Yeah, they could be leaving room for expansion trophies.

-EvoAnubis-3709d ago

They don't need to leave any room.

Seraphim3709d ago

nice point breakdown... and indeed, there is a value system behind the trophies.

Just like how Arcade games can only get 200 achievements PS3 Arcade/short games can only have X trophies. While a full length game is allotted more. It's up to the developers how they use the allotted points to incorporate trophies.

can't wait to get my hands on this one... I was anti pixel up until playing the demo for Eden. Then w/ the sale of Pixel Junk Monsters I bought that this past week... I just wish Eden would have released last week because I didn't have anything to play. Now I got Dynasty Warriors 6, The Witcher, & work this weekend. Oh well, still find time to play some Pixel and probably shoot for Rank 3 while I'm at it. ;)

Turns out, I'm not too far off. I posted this on the PlayStation.Blog, and surprisingly got this reply:

Yes, that’s roughly the theory behind it.
We give you the same amount of experience points but with more trophies rather than just having a handful of trophies that are gold or silver. We have to choose how to spread the experience points but in the end the player gets the same amount total."

I still have to try this. I am addicted to Pixel junk Monster and encore. I have blast playing that game with my wife. I just make her dance by tower and i do all the work. It is still lotsa fun though.

have added a gold into the game

Harry1903709d ago

I didn't like the demo. I want Flower.

Omega3709d ago

Don't like PSN games because no platinum trophy is awarded. Let's hope theirs no content we have to buy to get the rest of the trophies.

chaostheory3709d ago

They get to add extra trophies when they release an expansion. They have already hit their current maximum.

SL1M DADDY3709d ago

And since they added remote play, I will be able to go everywhere and play it. This is one of those titles I am more than willing to drop 10 bucks for. Great job Q!
