Rumor: Sony making Trophies mandatory

While not every game may include Trophies for now, at least one major developer tells Joystiq that Sony's answer to Achievements will be "mandated" by Sony for every new PS3 release in 2009.

The story is too old to be commented.

.... are better than "achievements".


Because there's actual difficulty levels between them:
Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum.

Also, gamers can level up through them. Which is really cool.

i know, you dont have to tell me lol

This is true. Sony already said it would be mandatory for newer games. The title isn't even the same as the source.


"Lempel: We're working with developers to hit a deadline. It's not something that we're trying to force on them, since it eats into their development schedules. Many of them want to do it. It's just there's some additional work on their end; someone has to create art and assets, and we don't want to interfere with what they're currently working on. Ultimately, we'll have trophies for every game, but we didn't want to force it on them immediately."

would you care to give me a link to the story?

Make them mandatory. Those lousy devs can create achievements, but tells us that they are too busy for trophies. *cough IW cough* rumble patch *cough.

Shouldn't be to hard. The exclusive 1st party will do it no matter what and the multiplatform games since it's mandatory for 360 they just need to copy them over to PS3.

I was about to say the same thing that it is mandatory just that recent games might not support it because of development stages. If a game is more than half way done it will most likely not support trophies but new developments will. If developers want to go back and fix their full games they can but aren't forced because it takes more time than an arcade game.

Trophies are way better than numbers a.k.a. achievements

ohh wow... you obviously don't own an xbox 360..



they are not just numbers... but they challenge the gamers, have individual icons, descriptions and are organized by games... not to mention that it allows you to do side by side comparison with other friends achievements... please tell me... how are Sony's trophies better than xbox 360 achievements? Seriously I want to know; please show us your wisdom or stupidity.

They better or developers will simply skip them... I think it's a good idea... otherwise it will be a failure.. if true, I think Sony is making the right choice...
