especially if they go back and and add trophies to Metal Gear Solid and Final fantasy 7.

WildArmed3132d ago

correct me if im wrong, but didn't CoD PSone classic have trophies?

Or did i mistake it for a PSOne classic?

thebudgetgamer3132d ago

i think its different because the first cod was known mostly as a pc game.

syanara3132d ago

yea that wasn't a PSOne classic that was standalone done by Infinity Ward,

Digitaldude3132d ago

Yeah i mean c'mon it can't be that hard to add em but it'll make a huge difference.

PirateThom3132d ago

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.

Shadow Flare3131d ago

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

guitarded773131d ago

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!!!!!!!

Hmmm... I don't think it out of the possiblity yet. 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.

remanutd553132d ago

what about psp games? sony should definitely try to implement the whole psn friends functionalities on the little system too

Disccordia3131d ago

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.

DrWan3132d ago

ps2 remasters....with trophies -_-

Sigh3132d ago

Like to play either Dark Cloud 2 or Dragon Quest VIII remastered with trophies... oh well...

Redrum0593132d ago

sikbeta3131d ago

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.
