In the past ten years video games have changed a lot; during the next-gen of gaming achievements and trophies have eased their way into our obsessive compulsive gamer heads. So…what exactly is an achievement or a trophy? What do they do and why should we care? Lastly which is better, the 360 Achievement or the PS3 Trophy? Honestly, they are two similar structures built out of different materials. They produce replay value by encouraging players to play in conventional and, sometimes, unconventional ways. Their biggest difference is presentation. Achievements hand out points, trophies hand out…well trophies. PlanetXbox360 decided to take a closer to see what these really have to offer. They found out that currently achievements and trophies are due for an overhaul and when choosing a preference, it's purely about time.
