New PlayStation App Removes Activity Feed and Trophy Comparison

The new PlayStation App for Android and iOS is starting to roll-out to users, and while it’s a step in the right direction, it also removed features that you may have grown accustomed to over the years.

But why? Comparing trophies is a beloved feature

Jin_Sakai82d ago (Edited 82d ago )

I’m sure the app is just a foundation and it will be built upon overtime. The new app is light years ahead of the old app. It’s incredibly fast and easy to navigate. And it’s dark instead of blinding white!

Id like them to add trophy compare back and keep th bottom navigation bar available throughout the app so we don’t have to click the back button 5 times to get back to the Home Screen. I assume the wishlist will be coming back soon also.

Unfortunately, the trophy comparison feature has also been removed from the PlayStation website, which could mean it won't be returning.

All you have to do when knee-deep in menus is click the Playstation Home button once and it takes you directly back to the home screen without having to click the back button a bunch.

Nobody has any ps5 trophies yet. They said you can play PS4 games but you have to earn the trophies all over again. I think once the ps5 gets in peoples hands for awhile we are going to see more features like these. Hopefully with the ps5 we can delete games from our trophy list.

Teflon0281d ago

Incorrect, Trophies are universal. If a game has a ps4 trophy list you've platinum'd and you play that ps4 version on ps5, you won't earn those trophies again. Maybe if there's a ps5 specific version but even then sometimes multiple versions share a trophy list. So it'll be a game by game bases

sourOG80d ago

I know for a fact that if you download the ps5 version of mk11 you need to earn all of the trophies again. Of course I’m going to download the ps5 version, why would I play the PS4 version lol.

Other games I dunno. I assume it’s the same.

"They said you can play PS4 games but you have to earn the trophies all over again."

No. False.

"Hopefully with the ps5 we can delete games from our trophy list."

You can do that on PS4.

MatrixxGT81d ago

You can only delete games that you have 0 trophies earned. Otherwise you can “hide” games from your public trophy list.

ziggurcat81d ago

"You can only delete games that you have 0 trophies earned."

Uh huh... which means you can delete games from your trophy list...

sourOG80d ago (Edited 80d ago )

I meant the ps5 upgrades for PS4 games. Like the free upgrades. Mk11 for example you will have to earn all trophies again.

I don’t care about the hiding part. I don’t care if others can’t see it, I don’t want to see it lol. I want to delete games with 1 trophy earned so your other point is moot as well.

ziggurcat80d ago

@sour

"I meant the ps5 upgrades for PS4 games..."

Still no.

sourOG80d ago

Ok whatever dude lol. Are you saying playing the ps5 version of mk11 you won’t have to earn the trophies again? Because it so you would be wrong. An no amount of smug will correct your wrongness.

ziggurcat80d ago (Edited 80d ago )

"Are you saying playing the ps5 version of mk11 you won’t have to earn the trophies again?"

No you won't. If it's cross-gen, and can carry your save file over, especially not because the game will probably share trophy lists just like some cross-buy titles do between PS3/Vita/PS4. If the trophy list happens to be separate, and that save file carries over, the game will unlock any trophies you've already achieved automatically.

So... you're wrong.

sourOG80d ago (Edited 80d ago )

Um nah.... look it up dude you are wrong

I did for you, you’re welcome, you’re wrong. See ya!

“ The PS5 version will also have a fresh trophy list, meaning you can earn the platinum trophy yet again in MK11 on PS5 even if you already have it on PS4. But just note that playing the PS4 version via PS5 backwards compatibility won’t give you a new trophy list.”

ziggurcat80d ago (Edited 80d ago )

Nope. You're confused with how things will work. If the save file transfers - which it will - the game will check that data, and unlock any trophies you have already achieved. You won't have to start from scratch.

From your cited article:

"Yes, your PS4 progression will carry over to the PS5 version of Mortal Kombat 11 as long as you are signed in with the same PlayStation ID. According to WB, this includes:

Custom character variations
All purchased DLC
All inventory items
Earned rewards (this wasn’t specified)
Time Krystals
Anything purchased with Time Krystals
Towers of Time progression
Krypt progression"

And that also means trophy progression.

sourOG80d ago (Edited 80d ago )

“Nope. You're confused with how things will work.”
Nah. You’re confused because you don’t play mortal Kombat I guess.

“If the save file transfers - which it will - the game will check that data, and unlock any trophies you have already achieved. You won't have to start from scratch.”
I have not seen that anywhere for any ps5 upgrade. It sounds like you are assuming things to me. Ps5 Mk11 does not transfer any “save files” aka match stats (online or off), character kills, story progression, settings etc. You have to play story to unlock frost again for example. The shit you unlocked transfers but no trophy related stuff is transferring. There are no trophies for buying DLC and time krystals.

“From your cited article:
Custom character variations
All purchased DLC
All inventory items
Earned rewards (this wasn’t specified)
Time Krystals
Anything purchased with Time Krystals
Towers of Time progression
Krypt progression"
Things you have bought and unlocked. Loot lol. I know this because MK is my jam and I don’t mind getting the plat again.

“And that also means trophy progression.”
You’re wrong. That’s why you had to add it in.

ziggurcat80d ago (Edited 80d ago )

"Nah. You’re confused because you don’t play mortal Kombat I guess ... I have not seen that anywhere for any ps5 upgrade. It sounds like you are assuming things to me."

I don't need to play to know how those things will work. It's already established practice implemented with past PS cross-buy titles that share save data, but have separate trophy lists. A lot of trophy hunters will use that to their advantage to double dip on platinum trophies.

"Ps5 Mk11 does not transfer any “save files”"

Yes, it does.

"Things you have bought and unlocked. Loot lol."

No. Progression transfers over if you are using the same PSN ID, and *includes* those listed items, it's not limited to those listed items.

"You’re wrong."

Nope.

sourOG80d ago

You’re really stubborn lol. And wrong. “That’s the way it’s always been” and “I don’t need to play MK to understand which is transferring and what is not” are not convincing arguments.

I guess we’ll see huh? I have the plat so I should unlock the plat as soon as a start up ps5 Mk11 right? When I see your name on Nov 12 I’ll be sure to rub it in or apologize lol. Either or I’m fine with.

I still see the old app,for some reason I can't get the new version of the app.

DaGR8JIBRALTAR81d ago

Hasn't made it to your neck of the woods yet...

ziggurcat81d ago

Have you tried deleting the app on your phone, and just re-downloading? That's how I got the new app on my iPhone to show up.

Elda81d ago

I did that several times & I continue getting the old version.

P_Bomb81d ago (Edited 81d ago )

Weak launch. Already axed communities on mobile; somehow found a way to social distance my friendlist even further.

Meanwhile I’ve counted FOUR pages spammed by ‘recently played’. The default page (first icon bottom left). The second icon from the right. Your profile page after clicking your name. Then another link click at the bottom of that. If I’m that forgetful, I’ll just look at my trophies.

Speaking of, bring back the big platinum icon by the game completion % so I can remember who to thumbs up when I get home. *sigh*

ziggurcat81d ago

Yeah, it's kind of a not good app.

P_Bomb81d ago (Edited 81d ago )

Take this example:

I have push notifications on and the app sent me two tonight. Problem is, it couldn’t tell me what they were for. Pop-up simply said I had a PlayStation notification.

So I opened the app and went to notifications, messages, everything. Nothing. I then booted up my PS4. Turns out the first was a like someone gave me for a trophy. The second was a like someone gave me for a game. Since Sony got rid of the what’s new activity feed, the app has no way to communicate that. So...all it can do is give you a pop-up that someone did something, but it can no longer tell you who or what. Fast road to nowhere.
