Konami Says MGS4 Trophies Are Not Coming Article By: Zach to the C
Yesterday, rumors of trophies coming to Metal Gear Solid 4 were running rampant on the internet after a photo showing trophies as a feature on the MGS4 greatest hits edition surfaced. After de-shatting my pants, I fired off an e-mail to Konami to get the low down on the situation, and here was there reply… sorry folks…

“Dear Zach,

Thank you for reporting this issue. The listing of Trophies in the Greatest Hits edition of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is a printing error that we are aware off. We are working with Sony to correct this error.
Unfortunately, at this time there are no plans to patch trophy support into this game.
We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have cause and we hope you will continue to enjoy the experience that Metal Gear Solid 4 has to offer.

Best regards,
Konami Customer Support”

I feel like it would be easier just to patch it rather than go through the process of reprinting all of the cases. And if this morning's news is true, we are about to get MGS1-3 HD with trophies so why not just let us have the entire complete main series?

Spydiggity2541d ago (Edited 2541d ago )

i agree with you, but it's clear they lied intentionally to sell more copies and didn't think they'd get caught. now they are caught, and they have to print retractions and take it back. it was a cheap tactic they thought they could get away with, pure n simple.

i guess they forgot the internet exists

EDIT: disagrees already? oh right, i forgot. this particular corporation would NEVER do anything like that. only the other guys are dishonest like that. these guys love us and reward us with gum drops and rainbows for blindly supporting them.

just give us the damn trophy patch!

Jayjayff2541d ago

i disagree with you because you didn't hold to your believes..... I'm disappointed in you

Perjoss2541d ago

so what if there's no trophies, its not like you need a REASON to play MGS4 again.

Spydiggity2540d ago (Edited 2540d ago )

i think the emphasis should have been on "NEED", not "reason".

and after playing through it at least 3 times, yes, i do NEED a reason to play through again...trophies would have been very nice.

*insert Darth Vader "Nooo" here*


Kind of figured, though. At least we now know they're working on HD remasterings of previous MGS games, though!

Well in this day an age Trophies are a big deal. I know that MGS4 is a masterpiece and everyone should experience it, but many will look at it and turn away because of it's lack of trophy support. Should it matter? No, of course not. Sad to see Konami couldn't take a couple months and put in some 51 trophies into the game. This game has so much creativity and Easter Eggs, trophies could of been a real enjoyment to go after. I personally loved playing it, but with the slew of games coming out, I waited patiently to replay it when Trophies came. Well now they didn't. Also You can get MGS4 for under $10 used. I can't see them selling a Greatest Hits version with zero incentives for $20-30. And too add to it: Where the hell is the directors cut?

Hearing that a MGS HD Collection is in the works is really exciting. I am curious how MGS will look. I hope they go with the original design, and not remake it or use the Twin Snakes design. Just polish it up.

I told everyone it wasn't going to happen but did they listen? No, instead they just spammed the disagree button.

morganfell2541d ago

Do you need trophies as a reason to play MGS4 again? It's only the greatest game ever made. The culmination of a story 20 years in the telling. The technical wizardry in that title still floors other games.

And the truth is there are still many secrets buried in that game people have yet to find.

Cheeseknight282541d ago

While it's undeniable that Metal Gear Solid 4 is a fantastic game, I still believe Snake Eater is the best in the series so I can't ever give MGS4 the title: "greatest game ever made."

Fulensenca2541d ago

I am absolutely convinced that Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots it' s the greatest game ever made.

I completely agree with Morganfell.

BiggCMan2541d ago

agreed. 4 is a masterpiece, in a series of masterpieces. i dont need trophies to play it again because ive beaten it 11 times, including 2 BBE runs. BUT trophies will always be welcome if they come.

badz1492541d ago

NOOOO....!!! (Darth Vader is gonna be very proud!)

shovelface882541d ago

I don't understand why this is a big deal, if the game is good and fun, why do you need trophies?

number472541d ago

I dont know... its just such an amazing title. Its probably 10 dollars at this point at gamestop.

I can't see ever missing out on a good game -- due to trophies?

BkaY2541d ago (Edited 2541d ago )

but this is stupid... how hard it is to patch the freaking game...


Odin7772541d ago

Trophies are kinda nice, but MGS4 is so good this shouldn't deter anyone from playing this masterpiece (There are in-game trophies at the end if you fiercely desire an abstract reward).

tinybigman2541d ago

wasn't konami the ones bitching that they wanted Sony to implement trophies sooner, now they don't want to patch it?

Just bloody patch it in already!

gillri2541d ago

who cares? trophies? really, dont waste your time with those and just move on to another game

Esena2541d ago

Apparently everyone else who posted here.

Why are you here again?...

Lucreto2541d ago

It was just a template used on all greatest hits games.

El-Fenemeno12132541d ago

Way to break my heart :'( to castlevania then =)

guitarded772541d ago (Edited 2541d ago )

I'm sorry to break your heart, I'm just passing along the info I got. If everyone hadn't blown it out of proportion yesterday and if they contacted Konami first, none of this would have happened. I want trophies just as much as everyone else, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen.
