especially if they go back and and add trophies to Metal Gear Solid and Final fantasy 7.
correct me if im wrong, but didn't CoD PSone classic have trophies? Or did i mistake it for a PSOne classic?
i think its different because the first cod was known mostly as a pc game.
yea that wasn't a PSOne classic that was standalone done by Infinity Ward,
Yeah i mean c'mon it can't be that hard to add em but it'll make a huge difference.
Actually, it could be even harder than regular trophies. When a game gets trophies, they have to make code changes to set up triggers for the trophies. This would mean going into games that are, relatively, ancient and changing their code.... who is going to do this? The publishers? Sony? Either way, it's FAR too much of a challenge from a technical stand point and why we can put this rumour to rest.
This is definitely big. Especially with the fact that trophies are much better than a random number, this will get people to reinvest in some of the old classics. This could also be the reason why we are not seeing supper for backwards comparability.
That would be HUGE for me. I would absolutely love to have FF7 with like 50 trophies and platinum. To have trophies to all my favourite old games would be incredible. Metal gear solid, crash bandicoot, final fantasy 8. It would be incredible. Please do it sony
better hope this is true and the free PSone games being free with the Premium PSN, just might have to invest in a new HDD
This would be cool, but I would rather get trophy support for all the PS3 titles that never got 'em... MGS4 Heavenly Sword Resistance VC Time Crisis 4 COD4 Oblivion R&C etc. Hell, even Lair and Haze... Give us our trophies NOW!!!!!!!

PS1 games run on an emulator on the PS3. So to add trohpy support, Sony does not need change the codes of old game. Nope. Since the game is running inside an emulator, Sony just need to add code to the emulator to check memory location and values. For example, to get the Trophy for Reaching Level 99, the emulator just have to check that character's Level in memory and trigger a Trophy if the value is 99. Just kinda like how Gameshark works.
it was a downloadable title released on PSN and not a PSOne classic. COD was originally on PC when it came out.
what about psp games? sony should definitely try to implement the whole psn friends functionalities on the little system too
Sony said they wouldn't bother because it's too easy to hack. Maybe their next portable though, assuming there will be another of course, as it would be a great addition.
ps2 remasters....with trophies -_-
Like to play either Dark Cloud 2 or Dragon Quest VIII remastered with trophies... oh well...
remastered MGS series and DMC series(well maybe just the first one)with trophies.
I want MGS series + RE4 + RE Dead Aim + Silent Hill 2 & 3 + All The Ratchets + All the J&D Remastered with Trophies
well you dont ask for much do you lol
Release some freaking games first. It's been about 3 years already, there's still hardly nothing but about 5 playable 'classics' up there. There should be AT least 50 games up there, I mean JUST look at the Jap store.
This'll be kinda cool :]
I'd like some Resident Evil and Jumping Flash trophies, FF7 too.
but the only ps1 games im interrested in are the Digimon games and since nobody gives a crap about digimon it'll never go on the Store
I care about Digimon :) still have the original Digimon 1,2&3 laying around somewhere.
I hated Digimon but I loved the games on PS1. I would totally buy one if they put it up for sale.
Personally, I would be more inclined to purchase some more titles.
Yeah. They need to start bringing a good PS1 catalog to NA. First Einhander and Suikoden 2, then I'll think about trophies.
i love the first digimon.. the rest is just meh.... and also theme hospital with trophy yumm!
Breath of Fire III Trophies! (Need Capcom to put it on PSN first)
I know I'd be more likely to buy with some trophy support.
Funny, that I thought probably over a year ago, that Sony should do this and quite interestingly enough they were thinking about it. I would think about buying some of the games I love and retire my old PS1 discs.
Doesnt make any sense to do this at all, its not going to happen. Also i think some of you are assuming sony will put trophies into third party games and that makes no sense either...
i have been playing FF8 on my PSP Go. I like the sound of trophies for PS1 classic. Love to go back to old skool days.
You get back playing classics are getting something new in return...but uh are we forgeting something? like older PS3 games without trophies? like MGS4? If this is true then probably MGS1 will get the treatment but MGS4 isnt getting it? that would be major lame.
