The Xbox 360 has Achievements when it launched in 2005. The Playstation 3 added Trophies in 2008. Do these features enhance you gaming experience or are the unneeded?
it's really fun to have a place where your gaming accomplishments and rewards add up and advance with time,compare it with freinds and cannot be deleted achievements\trophies are good
They also give you another goal to work towards within a game, gives you 1 more reason to pop in the game once it is done. I might have sold GTA had it not been for trophies.
im not a fanboy I love both systems and I wish the next gta to utilize blu-ray but believe me,Im not lying,I got gta 4 on ps3 first,finished it and was bit disappointed then soon I bought it again on 360 to play TLAD,and the other 2nd expansion AND.................. 360 version looks,runs,performs BETTER than ps3 version,the details,360 has better fram,rates,sharper\crisper graphics,better shadows,better AA and RUNS BETTER.ps3 version RUNS nearly crippled compare to it,just drive fast from island to another via the bridge in ps3 version,you'll almost threw up.blur,fuzz,ghosting Rockstar really did a bad job with ps3 version,although sam houser's vision was to built it up on ps3 see this interview with houser that took place in 2005 http://www.youtube.com/watc... Ign,gamepro said ps3 version was better cause R paid them,R knows that 90% of gta fans had em on ps2 believe me,go and play on 360 for a miniute very,very poor job R,you should built it up on ps3.sad very sad
You forgot about all the pop-in in the 360 version....
But as of right now,they're both pointless.
Yes. I like the sounds they make when they unlock. That makes me happy.
huge ps3 fan here but i must say achievements are better. Sony needs to show your stats next to your name like with the x360 gamerscore
IN my case (Trophies) add unique and fun gameplay and add replay value to games, i will get bored of games quick, but trophies give me an reason to keep playing them!!! I enjoy trophies as long as they are fun! Crackdown- AWESOME achievements, Perhaps the most fun, i have ever had getting them! ON the other hands there are ones like COD [email protected] , that are miserable, and ridiculous.. and make ruin the game, making it no fun... So, yes i love them if they are fun to get, or aren't so ridiculous hard they want you to pull ur hair out! I will never play another COD game for this reason, i bought COD WAW expecting to jump online and put MONTHES into trophies, to realize there were 3 online trophies that took me no more than 20 minutes! Highly dissapointed
But I will say it makes people play games longer than they normally would
I'm not a trophy whore but the few times I have played a game to try to get a trophy it didn't allow me to enjoy the game as much. And that's because I was playing, not to play and have fun, but to earn a trophy which kinda takes some of the fun away. But i guess it might also depend on the game and trophy because some are fun to get and some are hard and boring.
