Insomniac has explained exactly why they decided not to patch in trophies in Resistance: Fall of Man, and why they still won't have trophies in the new dual-pack.
I still want trophies in it :(, but I guess they do have to work on other stuff
seriously why would anyone want trophies for a old average outdated game as resistance. I would rather have MGS4 trophies! rather then worrying about trophies for crap games. Fans have been asking for MGS4 trophies for ages lool Forget it now though.
"Fans have been asking for MGS4 trophies for ages" Yeah they have been asking Konami, Not Insomniac. They are completely two different studio, why should MGS4 matter here? It's not like Insomniac games can do anything about that.
Companies need to stop being stupid and pay for the couple of days worth of programming that it takes to put the trophies in the games. I've been waiting and wanting trophies in MGS4 for ever now, and honestly i dont expect it to ever happen and am madly dissappointed in Konami for it and look at them in a different light for it
With trophies I might even get that dual pack, forgetting about the God-awful packaging in Europe, but without them I don't even consider it.
I wonder how many people would pay for a DLC that enables trophies in a game. That would give some devs an incentive to patch older games.
I would rather have trophies for Assassin's Creed 1, it's not really fair, the XBOX 360 version got achievements for it, so why not give the PS3 version a trophy patch?
You cannot blame Ubisoft for not including a feature the ps3 did not support.
Companies have little incentive to spend money adding trophies when they will get almost nothing in return. It's not like they will suddenly sell millions of extra copies. Even with this new dual pack they wouldn't make enough to recover the cost of adding trophies, and they aren't likely to lose too many sales because they didn't add trophies. It's all about the money, it always is.
ps3 didn't support trophies until the achievements gimmick with xbox really caught on. Until then ps3 hadn't mimmicked this xbox feature for ps3. Why would the developers want to dump money into a finished product released before ps3 had achievement mimicking trophies that won't net them any additional return????? It boils down to money.
what about all the games that got a patch? uncharted drakes fortune?warhawk?the list goes on and on tombraider trilogy?prince of persia trilogy?sly collection?and im sure if they were willing sony would foot the bill cause it would be more enticing for people who sold it a long time ago to fet this collection thay are just way to busy with learning to develop for the 360 now that they dont care about us playstation guys anymore oh well killzone is better anyway LOL
You guys will fall for anything. So, what theyre saying is: We're going to give you the "EXACT" same Resistance 1 game, right? Well, dont charge people $40 dollars for it. Or dont charge at all. A team member of Insomniac said: "Resistance 1's code base is inactive": WTF is that? Get The F*** Outa Here With That BS! And people bitch about the Halo CE:Anniversary remake, thats getting Achievements & was made 10 years ago; not even this generation. Seems that M$ is giving something extra to people; while SONY gives the exact same s***. Halo:CE is getting: Story Co-op Online Graphic upgrade to current gen Skulls Online Multiplayer Firefight Mode And more... I'll bet that cost 343 Industries money. Seems some people care & others dont.
Um, Halo CE is a REMAKE of a title. This is just a bundle for those who have yet to play the games. Please don't be dense.
I don't think Zinc was thinking straight when he when on his little rant.
"Seems that M$ is giving something extra to people; while SONY gives the exact same s***. " Well I guess all of the PS2 remakes with trophies don't count in your view? Get out of here with your little immature rant.
Sorry otherZinc, but that is completely different because it is a remake and the company will make money on the purchases of it, so it makes sense to provide new features.
why not give a platinum trophy if you complete all of the in game medals? c'mon, just one trophy... can't wait for R3...
Maybe Sony won't allow something like that, although I was pretty close to getting all the medals in the game, I think I had to get 2 more.
This was explained long ago when they announced the dual pack and many times before... http://n4g.com/news/153623/... http://n4g.com/news/164532/... http://n4g.com/news/772641/...
We can dream though :) .. I'd love a reason to go back
If only Sony did trophies from the beginning. Then maybe people wouldn't be complaining so much. You don't need trophies to enjoy a game. Anyway whatever.
That's fair enough really, I wouldn't want to do any extra work if I didn't have to either. It's a pain.
I love trophies, but MGS4 is one of my favorite games on the PS3 and I still go back and play it and try to unlock some of the more difficult items and unlockables. I really do miss getting unlocks in games sometimes. Achievements and Trophies have taken over and become the norm(and even boost sales on crappy games for easy Gamer scores....), but I wish developers started throwing in more and more unlockables in games, like giant head mode, or skins and what not after beating the game or doing certain things.
Id rather have trophies for OBLIVION!!!!!!..........sigh oh well
It seems like such a simple thing really to add trophies. I have 15 games i want to play on the ps3 (mult plat games) that do not have trophies but they have achievements on the 360 so im going to play them on the 360. True you dont need trophies or achivements for games but it feels rewarding. I understnad the reasoning from devolopers though since most of these games that dont have trophies are going to sell used so the developer dosent see any money from them.
The coding to add Trophies isn't the issue. It's the time, QA testing, and format testing needed to verify that they work/aren't buggy. That costs $ and eats up development time that is being spent on other projects now.
Oh i completly understand that im not saying its bad on the developers like i said in understand why they dont do it. I was just stating the simple fact that if given the chance to play the game on the ps3 & there are no trophies or play it on the 360 with achievments im going to go the route where i get something for playing it. Now granted Resistance is an exclusive & the point is moot but im talking in general
They could easily outsource the implementation of trophies if they wanted to. It's just laziness. I didn't realize so many PS3 games lacked trophy support. If only Sony had ripped off the idea sooner, same with release date PS3 controllers that cant turn the PS3 on/off. Needed to rip that off earlier as well.
Yeah, because that would be cheaper... And your fanboy trolling comments amuse me. "If only Sony had ripped off the idea sooner, same with release date PS3 controllers that cant turn the PS3 on/off" How is that a ripped off idea? Did microsoft devise the whole concept of rewarding players for accomplishing things? Hell no. Games have been doing that for years. And the controller always turned off the system. The same way, I don't know, a FREAKING TV turns off using a remote. If you're gonna troll, at least come up with relevant points.
"outsource" "laziness" .... your saying they're lazy because they didn't outsource the work lmao
go play games...oh wait you have none sorry
@#!*% what is with the sony hate today? that's all i've been seeing is hate towards sony or the ps3. then has anyone even noticed the sudden increase in 360 fanboys? sheesh this guy is trolling yet he atleast got 7 agrees for that bs he pulled out of his @#!*% .
You just love trolling don't you Raven? You LOVE it!
Even if it did had the trophies, I don't get the appeal of the product considering Resistance 2 was said to be disappointing.
Did you play Resistance 2?
Im in the rare group thank loved resitance 1 but wasnt as much a fan of 2. My gripe with 2 was **spoiler** when in 1 you litterally spent an entire level in a plant showing you how the chimera were manufactured, it was like an hour long trip explaning how things were done & in the second one they wrote off that whole concept with once sentince from a NPC "remember when they were grown in labs" as showing now they are grown in pods. My other problem was resitance 1 90% of the game (it seemed like anyways) it was Hale against the Chimera you were on your own which was a big part of the enjoyment, in resistance 2 you are alone for 10% of the game (again it seemed like anyways) Dont get me wrong i still enjoyed Resistance 2 but i imesnly enjoyed the first one much much more!
I agree with you. I thought Resistance 1 was a really enjoyable gritty FPS. I thought Resistance 2 was just a tedious trudge from one crappy set piece to the next and i thought the overall look and feel of the game was pretty lame. Not really looking forward to Resistance 3 but i'll give it a chance.
bah bah bah i heard this same crap about quest for booty
So insomniac, why no trophies in RES1 Err, we couldn't be arsed tbh.
boo fxcking hoo no trophies, play the game for what it is not just to get your trophy count higher ><
Yeah to much expense..especially many other companies made trophy patches for pre trophy games...Uncharted Drakes fortune was 1.
Honestly it can't be that expense especially with previous unlocks. how about when R3 ships? No can't do that we have a new game to work on... Really guys?
