Trophy whores, Altair is not your friend. Though some of you have been pestering Ubisoft to go back and add Trophies to Assassin's Creed, they're not going to do it. You'll have to seek virtual ass-patting elsewhere.
..there was talk of a trophy patch for AC? I wasn't even aware.
There was one talk about it. Ubi said before there was not going to be trophies but I always hoped they would change their minds with AC2 being releases. I was playing through the game when the trophy patch was being released so I stopped and never got back to it. That is one less reason to go back to the first one now.
I played through half of the first one and quit. I still own it and I plan on playing through someday but it would have to be out of sheer boredom because the first one was as repetative as they get.
While a few trophies would be nice, there is no way in hell I'm going to try and find every last flag in that game. Oh-my-fracking-God.
thanks GOD there aren't trophies b/c then I might be compelled to actually find all the flags/ rescue all the people/ climb all the tall things etc etc etc... I mean talk about a game where its just rinse and repeat to be honest I beat the game on the 360 for which there are acheivements and I was still like screw (of course I don't value acheivementsthe same way for some reason)
Was anyone even giving it a thought. Might have been nice six months ago, but who really cares now.
i think it was a little late for this...because as soon as i seen the title i immediatley thought it was for AC2...
Well, i don't really care... But Assassin's Creed 2 will have trophies so that's a good sign =) ... since it mandatory now (...thx for that Sony =D shows that you care)
lucreto... its one less reason to not bother supporting them with the second one also... but if you do want it get it preowned... but really i must say it was stupid of sony to not make them do trophies from the start! they really went half arsed about it and it hasnt done them any favours... thankfully its all sorted now but it really wouldnt hurt developers to go back and patch old games, infact it would give them bragging rights like "see we support our games" instead its "do one, we cant be bothered!" lol... so i same the same back! oh you have a new game coming out ay... preowned! up yours! lmao.
"but really i must say it was stupid of Sony to not make them do trophies from the start! they really went half arsed about it and it hasnt done them any favours" That is a very ignorant thing to say. When MS first came up with achievements, no one knew if they would work or even catch on. After it became apparent that achievements were becoming popular, Sony made adjustments. You act like achievements were golden from the very beginning when that is just not the case.
to screw any company, it wouldn't be Ubi. Oh wow, they didn't put trophies in a game that came out when there were no trophies, and now they don't want to go back and fix it. Meanwhile, Valve won't patch Orange Box, Bethesda won't patch anything/make any expansions (Fallout 3) and how many companies give timed exclusives... and I'm supposed to try to get back at them for not adding trophies 2 years later? lol, no.
ozzyb... is not adding trophies the worst thing in the world? no... but dont you think it shows a lack of support to not go back and patch it?... look at what epic did for ut3! trophies, mod browser, a vehicle, charcters, maps etc etc all for free! now why did epic bother? they didnt have to do that did they? it just shows that they are willing to support their game doesnt it?... wouldnt it have been good for ubisoft to patch assasins creed? wouldnt you have been coming in saying cool nice one ubisoft? i just think if they dont wanna support their games and their fans who pay for their products why should we or i support them? they cant be bothered then neither can i... is that such a bad thing?.... to the other guy sorry your reply is somewhere down the bottom im sure i pressed reply but obviously not lol... and when i said they should have done them across the board from the start i did mean when they decided to do them not when the ps3 was released.
Did Insomniac patch in trophy support for RFOM?No,did it matter?No,right so then what does it matter that Ubi won't patch in trophy support for some old @ss game.I'm one of the 20 people that actually loved AC1 but I wouldn't play through it a third time just to get some crummy @ss trophies.If you're that hungry for trophies then go get that Hannah Montana game.
to you maybe it doesnt matter... and i will admit trophies have made me into a whore lol.. why? because its fun getting them and it gives extra replay value to most games... did rfom have trophies? no your right it didnt! how many times did i play through that game? once! not that i didnt like it or anything it was a great game... killzone 2 how many times did i play through? 4 got all the offline trophies (just need a few online ones now) its just fun to try and get em all and i believe insomniac should have gone back and patched trophies too... have i bought r2? no... im sorry it just pisses me off that they just couldnt be bothered! especially first party or even exclusive games in general dont have trophies! you wanna attack me for that? lol thats fine but arent i allowed an opinion then? sony have even seen the error of their ways and made trophies a must! doesnt that tell you that even they admit they made a mistake?... its like if you told a builder or something right i want this this and this done....
..... also you can do this other job if you want but you dont have to... wtf you think their gonna do? it would be stupid to say that! because ofcourse people are inherantly lazy! and you wouldnt play through rfom if they added trophies, cool thats fine and it would be your choice but i know alot of people would!... am i saying trohies are the be all and end all of everything? no! its just fun and adds to a game and i think that developers who want to make sequels and that should spend the extra bit of time to just patch the older games i mean why not? if they did would you say omg you idiots i didnt want trophies? lmao... anyway its my choice who i support and who i do not isnt it? as it is your choice whom you support! its easy to come out with stupid remarks like your hannah montana one mate... surely you know people have different opinions on things dont you?
I agree with what you're saying in a general manner. I think devs should always support their games to the fullest reasonable extent. I just don't think it would really be worth it for AC. I seriously loved that game, and I wouldn't play it again for trophies. I'd rather they concentrate on the sequel, but I'm not disagreeing with you, I just think it's effort better spent elsewhere.
im not even really saying they should do it now to be honest it is a little too late... but they had lots of time to do it and they didnt bother... it just pisses me off... i feel the same about mgs4, i mean with that game its even worse! a big big console defining game like that doesnt have trophies? i just dont get it... can it really be that hard to programe in trophies? others have done it so i shouldnt see why... it just seems lazy and gives off a we dont give a feck attitude i cant stand... just out of principle i wont shop in a store that treats me bad, and im the same with everything i purchase... if everyone did that then companies wouldnt even risk pissing off its customers cus that would mean the end of them... but alas people just dont seem to care that much these days... and im not saying ubi are the worst in the world but just lazy and it sucks
I definitely agree about MGS4. That was inexcusable to me. People would go back and play that game again for trophies, not to mention I'd be willing to bet people would pay good money for some DLC.
I'm fine with that. I'm not likely to play it again anyway given that the sequel is coming later this year; I'd rather play that.
i dont plan on searching for millions of magic swords just to get a trophy.
I traded Assassin's Creed in before 2.40
OK, even though I never knew about so called rumblings of trophy needs. This is f*cked that they aren't going to add trophies, just take the achievements from the XBOX 360 version of the game, change them so they have their bronze/silver/gold ratings and then your done, it would take a day, hell I'll do it for them if they let me!!! The one reason I haven't picked Assassin's Creed up again(After trading it for the bore of repetitiveness the game had) is because there is no reason to go back to it, I would like to see how the story ended, but really I can live without it, add trophies and it gives me a reason to play it again. It's actually one of the reasons I have stopped playing Saints Row 2 so much, I rather play other games that have trophies and get rewarded for it, it's just so much more fun. F*cken lazy pricks, lift your damn game(LITERALLY)!
You also have to write in the code to trigger the trophies and to make sure it's tested to not crash the game. It's not, contrary to popular belief, as easy as just copying the achievements over. I wonder, are Insomniac lazy pricks for not patching Resistance and Ratchet and Clank with trophies? What about Kojima and MGS4?
It's not worth it. Do we really need virtual points in a game as old as Assassins Creed? Granted, it's not that old but still. Plus, I'd rather they concentrate the whole team on getting AC2 perfect rather than worrying about trophies for an old game.
Sorry for writing this post twice, but I don't want it to be missed by PT and MI. Of course they are, those games would become instantly replayable and in some cases buyable, IMO it is actually worse considering they are PS3 exclusives, why aren't they helping the console that these games are exclusively on??? If it already works with achievements, wouldn't they just have to copy the same coding to work with trophies??? Surely it wouldn't be THAT hard and remember these guys are game developers who know how to do these things and do them right, 1 day to implement, 1 day for a test(Hell, give them 2-3 days to test), BAM, trophies are in, it really isn't going to be a setback for Assassin's 2, and they could probably have about 2-3 people at maximum working on it, not like they would need a whole team. @Micro_Invader For me, yes it would be worth it, I would go and buy the game now if it had the trophies(There is currently a sale of the game and it is very cheap), but it doesn't so I will be picking up Uncharted instead(Now how come Naughty Dog could put their trophies in? Not to mention they didn't have any achievements to copy from one game to another)
I never tried hard for the trophies... unless of course, sony decided to reward us if we get platinums. :) However, there are a few games that i wanna unlock every trophy as they are addictive games as hell... To name a few, Uncharted, Resident Evil 5. I'm aiming for platinum for these two games.
Who would even go back through this game for trophies? It was bad enough going through this repetitive garbage the first time. I won't be playing Assassin's Creed 2 either. Just more mediocre games from Ubisoft.
This is not very timely.

I think that if the game had trophies, it would of added more variety to the game itself. I re-played GTA4 when it was released with trophies, I liked it. Either way, it's unfortunate to hear that it won't get any trophies. :(
That version of the game was plagued by constant screen tearing and framerate drops compared to it's 360 counterpart so I sold it long ago anyway. After all that money Ubisoft made they should go back and implement the trophies into the game and keep their fans happy, from a business standpoint that would be the right thing to do. Whoever made that decision to not add them is a moron. Keeping their fans interested in the game, especially when they're hyping the sequel, is the smart thing to do.
That would have been the best marketing move, get gamers to get back into the games, Ubisoft gains some cred for supporting their games. What do i care i got the 360 version with achievements (sweet)
dont care, bring on mgs4 and cod4 trophies
That would make me buy up the game again... but since their aren't so supportive, well maybe on AC2 after see it the gameplay and the "new missions"
jmare... how is it ignorant? so they didnt do a have baked job with trophies then? how long did they come out after acheivements? as much as i dislike the 360 and ms they did have acheivements with ALL games from the get go! and that is clearly the way to go about it isnt it? saying to someone oh you can do this or you dont have to really bother isnt the right way to go about things really is it? and if it wasnt such a bad move on sonys part why have they now changed it to every game having to have trophies now? how many articles have you seen where there is talk of a game getting trophies, and you see all the comments saying please patch this game etc... its obvious people want it and i see them as being a great idea to add reply and extra challenges to a game... so please tell me why im ignorant for saying what i said?
Noooooooooooooo, how can I grow my e-p*nis if I can't get trophies? (am I allowed to say penis on here?)
Yup, i think so.
I'd rather find a needle in a haystack, then those flags. O wait, wasn't that what i was doing.
I didn't know about this, and to me it's pretty sad because I got the 360 version of the game and I find it very enjoyable but if I were to play it without the achievements I seriously would not like it. Can the developers expect you to go around all the cities looking for the flags and not get any recognition for it? Now I know why Assassin's Creed got lukewarm ratings from IGN. On the other hand, it's not right to demand Ubisoft to go back and add trophy support. They're a big company and they got a lot of other games to focus on other than Assassin's Creed. Instead of vowing to hurt the company by not buying their games new, why don't you just hope that their next iteration of AC will be better. I've never heard of a gamer trying to hurt a developer. Whoever said that, that just makes you a douchebag, dude. Seriously, you have no idea how long these guys slave away at a computer to make the game and simply because there are some mistakes or something is not to your liking you're going to boycott them. Nice work. That's like American citizens disrespectfully protesting against American soldiers when they returned from their failed campaigns during the Vietnam War. Those protesters were douches too.
I don't know my anyone would expect them to. I love how the Xbox 360 games all have achievements! Score!
Is there any RUMBLE in Assasins Creed? I have been playing with my DS3 but I haven't felt anything.... Wow UBI soft is so lazy. First with Ghost Recon 2 Advanced War Fighter (For me) and now Assasins Creed! It shouldn't be hard to add rumble to the damn thing...!
