PS3Trophies.co.uk has uploaded a list of trophies for Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto 4. No word on whether these trophies are retroactive or not yet. Full list on their site.
This little bit of incentive is not just good as Trophies, but shows that Rockstar is committed to giving PS3 owners the complete experience, and I now have that little extra push I needed to finally complete the game and replay it. I was waiting for this patch though, but I've been catching up on older gems in the meantime like Uncharted, Burnout Paradise, and Warhawk, not to mention MGS4. Can't wait to get 100% and the Platinum. I expect MGS4 to come soon after.
the game absolutely bored me to tears,theres too many games due to be released that warrant my attention more...
Trophies are a great incentive to re-play your past games but only if you thoroughly enjoyed them in the first place. This will be great for some but I just can't see me going through GTA IV for trophies at all. It got to that 33% complete point where I just couldn't give a damn any more no matter how hard I tried. Pass... but bring in Heavenly Sword, Lair & MGS4 trophies and I'll gobble them up right quick for sure.
Damn. I would of done these trophies but too bad I traded in GTA4 :(.
Yeah Jamie, I agree. I couldn't get into GTAIV, no matter how hard I tried. The other three and San Andreas were better. :/ I traded it in and got a PS2 game and Uncharted. And Uncharted rocks.
JUST when I thought that older titles like COD4, MGS4, Resistance aren't ever going to support trophies, here comes a game that does! And GTA is made for Trophies Support. I definitely look forward to it. I didn't like the story, but doing wacky stuff is going to be cool.
I have to disagree with you guys. I just bought GTA4 this past weekend for $30 (thank you craigslist). I've been playing it non-stop. I love it so far and i'm about 30% done with it. BUT, i'll have to admit, this is my first ever GTA game (yes i have been living under a rock) so i have NOTHING to compare it to. So although you guys don't like it, it's new to me and therefore probably the reason why I like it more than some of you.
I'm not trying to heat things up here but IMO completing the same boring game twice is freakin frustrating so don't be a trophys whore or you will find your joystick hitting the wall 60 miles an hour ........... but wait look on the bright side you got a silver trophy good for you.
I'm happy about this because it will get me back into the game. Im a trophy whore!
They are going to start advertising this game really hard this fall again for the holidays and this will be great for those who will be buying a PS3 this fall or those who haven't bought GTA IV yet.
when are they coming? btw i really really hope theyre retroactive
They should add custom soundtracks to the game if they aren't retroactive.
i might want it go to far in the sense as to allow u to create more than 1 custom radio station based on ur music, so u can have different genres and custom music instead of everything (hip hop,alternative, rock) all playing on one station
This will make the game so much better for what it is now.
acheivments/trophies are pointless. trophies are even more pointless becuase not everygame supports them.
are games pointless? I mean we dont need them, but we enjoy them. does that make them pointless?
i think games are fun (or i would not be on this site) acheivements and trophies are pointless and do not add to the experience of a game. i play games for fun, not chasing acheivements
I agree with you. All this achievements and tropies stuff is real pointless. I mean why you gonna wanna spend so much time trying to compete with other gamers that you hardly know for most part to get the best gamescores? I am NOT saying that these features should be not be included in games - I just don't see whats the big deal many gamers make about them. I understand the feature's popularity amongst younger gamers but it's kinda comical to see grown-ass people get excited about scoring high points on video games and getting virtual/cyber rewards. You must have a lot of spare time on your hands and less of a social life to be putting in tons of work in trying get high points on games for achievements and trophies. @ KnaveX - You cannot compare the relevance achievements/trophies to video games as a whole. You're trying to be smart, but you also sound silly at the same time. Video games are a virtual medium of entertainment, fun, fantasies and escaping/imitating reality, so the essential point of video games is to provide us with those and much less about getting high gamescores. So in that respect, there is more of a need to have video games, because apart for playing for fun you many people have a need to escape reality or immerse themselves in their own worlds. They do this by playing video games. Achievements and trophies are not essential in video games to provide these feelings so in way they can be seen as pointless. You can play simple quiz games or puzzles with friends if you find massive fun in just achieving high scores. EDIT: I see I got disagrees....we must have some genuine geeks in here lol. @ KnaveX - Your reply makes more sense now, so we are cool on that. (You are not included when I called out the geeks). @ DiamondWolf - Thanks. I'm glad some people here understand me!
right back at ya with the trying to seem smart comment, im not gonna argue here, you have a point. But I wasnt comparing them as a whole, people find entertainment in competition. If you both dont find the fun in besting that guy you truly dont know or your best friend (in my case) then that doesnt mean others dont. I just think its a fun feature, its not really necesary for me, im getting naruto which has been confirmed to not have trophies, but im just saying, i see the point of trophies.
You're absolutely right! I mean way back in the day, people didn't gather around and compete on the arcades for the best high score. Oh yea, and arcade games didn't have a spot where you could put your initials in to dictate high score. Oh yea, and most games now don't have online leaderboards to show the best players in the world. Who are you to tell people what they should and shouldn't enjoy in games. Sounds like you are telling people when they should or shouldn't play. People pay their money and have the right to enjoy games the way they want to, and if they like to compete then let them compete. Online Multiplayer isn't a necessity in games but we have it. "You're trying to be smart, but you also sound silly at the same time" Seems to me that you forgot what the true essence of gaming really is just like a lot of other "gamers" this generation.
Damn, for a minute I thought you had agreed with me, but I see you were being sarcastic. Now let me set your stupid b*tch a*s straight. I think you should read my post again carefully because you start bleeding in your underwear with period blood squirts, or ripping out your hairbands and get defensive towards my comments. If you must know I had actually stated and highlighted: "I am NOT saying that these features should be not be included in games - I just don't see whats the big deal many gamers make about them." Now if you ask me, that statement clearly does NOT show me telling people what to enjoy and not enjoy in games. It clearly states that I am not against including this feature in video games. In fact, in my entire post I never told anyone not to do or not enjoy anything in games. I was simply stating my opinion and views on achievements/trophies, which as a member of N4G that I have the right and entitlement to do. If you dont like it then the choice you have is like this - you can either have proper debate about with me about this topic without being upset and defensive for nothing, or you simply should just shut the f*ck up and go and cry in a corner. Now thats me tellin YOU what can do, or not do......punk
I don't understand how you can call achievements pointless and then insult the adults that enjoy them, and then claim to have an intelligent conversation. The competition of acheivement collecting is enjoyable to some; the ad populum attacks are baseless.
i changed my mind achievements are great
Damn whats up with some of you guys? Why are you getting upset over a difference of opinion on video games? Seriously you just need to chill. I never attacked achievements/trophies at all. Ok let me take back what I said - achievements/trophies are NOT pointless. Yes there are a great many gamers out there who enjoy them. All I said was that in MY VIEW I just cant see why gamers make such a big deal about them, especially older gamers. Now my views and opinions are NOT what dictates what happens in gaming and there is no need to worry about them so much, so you dont need to be crying. This is the last time I explain myself to all you punks. AND IF ANYONE IS GONNA POST A SIMILAR ATTACK ON MY VIEWS.....EAT SH*T AND CHOKE ON IT YOU STUPID MOTHERF*CKAS. IT'S JUST DAMN VIDEO GAMES GROW DA F*CK UP!
Wow dude, you sure set my a** straight didn't you! *applauds* I don't even need to comeback because you did a pretty good job at making yourself look like the imbecile you are behind screen :) Congrats! And to think I would actually have a good debate with you but I guess this wasn't the Gamer Zone *shrugs* my mistake edit: forgot one last thing, dammit, I couldn't let it go "AND IF ANYONE IS GONNA POST A SIMILAR ATTACK ON MY VIEWS.....EAT SH*T AND CHOKE ON IT YOU STUPID MOTHERF*CKAS. IT'S JUST DAMN VIDEO GAMES GROW DA F*CK UP!" Time to take your own advice. I'll go ahead and humor you. I never stated or took your post serious, check my history and you'll see that I'm not your average fanboy, I just keep sh*t real. What you said in your post is that "All this achievements and tropies stuff is real pointless" then you follow up with "You must have a lot of spare time on your hands and less of a social life to be putting in tons of work in trying get high points on games for achievements and trophies." And again with "In fact, in my entire post I never told anyone not to do or not enjoy anything in games" While I agree with you when you said that you didn't dictate how people should enjoy, and I take back what I said about you dictating how people should enjoy their games, but you did blatantly attack those who do. That's where my comment stemmed off. PS: SaWoop
I never endorsed achievements. I have no issue with someone stating his opinion as opinion. However, there is a difference between stating your disdain for achievements, and calling those adults that enjoy achievements comical. One is a statement of opinion; the other is an insult. To say that achievements are pointless is just silly. Research shows that games with their achievements made explicit sell better than those that do not. Gamers have shown that they enjoy achievements. There is a point for the developer and the consumer. For you, General, there is not.
We're disagreeing with your points (which, in case you missed it, we have the right to do), not trying to kill your dog. You CAN disagree with THEM without resorting to this schoolyard bullying and name calling that should be kept to the open zone. CHILL!!
Perfect example on how to lose your bubbles!
haha freakn general train to be gangsta n wut not. on regards to ur comment i think the one that need to grow up is u man. Any way i personally love trophy s and GTA4 will be a nice addition to my platinum collection ;)
I swapped my PS3 version with a friend for a Pizza :( True story... was hungry :)
You got the better deal.
... And got Cooking Mama! Then you could make more than just pizza!
oh come on... this perverse disdain for GTAIV is getting out of hand.
But it's the cool thing to do you know... kinda reminiscent of the bashing of vista. Too many people care about what others think about things anymore. Everybody in the world needs to just be themselves, like what they like, hate what they hate, and keep it to themselves. Agree, disagree, I don't care. It's my opinion.
I enjoyed the game. But like i've said before, I never really played a GTA game before.
@RebelExtrm02 - I don't think its just people following the "cool" opinion. The game was just a genuine let down, and that is the common consensus. I don't think people are just saying they didn't like it, I think that's how most people feel. The story line left a number of plot holes (ex: your first girlfriend), punished you for doing what was the "right thing to do," made you constantly visit virtual friends for boring mini-games, money has absolutely no value even though it is supposedly your primary drive, and the online mode was a laggy, boring joke. People do actually share opinions, and sometimes they aren't just following what's popular. That being said though, I'll probably replay it for the trophies. I feel dirty for saying it, but I'm a trophy whore.
HAHA. I don't know if I would have done that but funny none the less.
lmao. i traded mine in a few months ago. it was a fun game, though.
if this is enough to make me go back to this game, and I don't think they will be retroactive, criterion stated burnout will be retro but they ran into difficulty and couldn't pull it off so it just might not be possible.
That's what I thought. Criterion couldn't do it even with their own save sysytem sinc eit is partly locked on their network. So I highly doubt that GTAIV will have retroactivity.
Making the trophies retro won't help rockstar...It might not be enough for you to get back in the game if they AREN'T retro, but it definitely won't if they ARE.
anyway, I got through GTA IV in like 10 days after its release date, and too many games coming out (Wipeout!) so F the GTA trophies.
kind of right there w/ u, theres gonna be so much other crap i'll be busy with to spend my time on that. glad they implemented them though
I might have another spin through it for trophies. Its always nice to see a little added incentive to go back to a game. Can't see it being retroactive though; Burnout wasn't and that already had an internal medal system which were used for the trophies as a base and the game save was tied to PSN tags so I doubt the medal free and open save file GTA4 will be retroactive.
...good luck on those 200 packages/pigeons.
Nice, this gives me another reason to actually beat it. TGSI
ill be playing LBP instead of GTA IV :) but might play it to kill time..
I sold this game because it didn't feel too much like GTA game, and more of an average sandbox game. I am sorry I ever spend $65 on this game, because I really didn't enjoy it. But I guess it good for the people that did.
Same here. Sold mines for 15 bucks.
what, is this for real? i thought they confirmed there would be no trophies. for me this is sweet, gonna love getting them all playing with my gf! we were so sad when the game ended and there was pretty much nothing to do anymore :( this fixes it.
as long as they get it b4 october 21st then i'll play
it was a 8-9/10 in my opinion. trophies are great. in the future every game will support trophies ;)
a reason to go back and play this MASSIVE Over Hype GTA.
i don't have to pay anything. Lets hope GTAV comes as a exclusive whenever it comes out, which i think will take 2-3 years.
You don't like it then! ;-D I have just started to play it. Love the Story;) I haven't been blown away by it tho(LBP beta HAS Blown me away tho!!!) ;-P Going to wait for the Trophies then. +I sold my xBox 360!!! ;-D Couldn't be @SSED waiting for the GTA4 DLC!!! + i was still waiting for a 'AAA' game for the xBox 360 this year!!! ;-D Sold it on eBay...it cost me £50 to sell it!!! ;-D
So Trophies thats nice, are they gonna fix the stat servers so that they actually work??? Ive been sat on $120,000 for months!
Looks like Rockstar ain't too busy kissing M$'s ass after all.
Like I confirmed monthsago, R* will also have Home support in GTA 4as will MGS4.
Well the trophies should be retro since your PSN ID is linked to the GTA Social Club website. But then again after all Burnout didnt work like they said it would. I wouldnt mind playing GTA all over again. I've been holding out going after all the pigeons in the game and replaying to make different choices in the game on who you kill and don't kill.
when does this come?
Wait Are these trophies available now? or are they coming later
Wtf i didn't know they were releasing trophies for this game.
This only leaves MGS 4 trophies. Can you hear me Konami?
Sorry, we're intercepting your calls. LOL.
mgs 4 trophies would be awesome
LMFAO. MGS DOESN'T HAVE TROPHIES?!?!?! HAHAhahahhahAHAHHA OMG OM OMGOMG OMG LMFAO!!!!
I have play through GTA4 many time, but I'll give a another go-around to unlock Trophies.
