I just died a little inside with these two statements:

"Once this Trophy thing gets going, I'm done with Achievements."

"The only time I will ever turn my xbox on again is for Gears 2, otherwise it's all ps3"

It seems like this guy only plays game for achievements/trophies.

Maybe it's just me.  My interpretation is, this guy chose Xbox360 version over PS3 version ONLY for achievements.

 

 Actually, the guy just hates the xbox 360. http://blogs.ign.com/Greggy-IGN/2008/04/15/86861/#comments

Got a 360 for free.  Tried a few games for it.  Would have chucked it for only a ps3 if he wouldn't have bought DLC for Rock Band.

But, this obviously means it's better. It's not like the two other people's impressions were basically "Yeah, it's the same thing, but slightly different. Whatever, nice to have it, at least." Oh wait, that pretty much was their response. I think this one guy's idiocy trumps their understated, levelheaded approach.



The dedication you show to any particular console or company is inversely proportional to the number of times you have gotten laid. If you get laid enough, even if you prefer a certain brand, you just don't give enough of a shit to argue about it on the internet.

I really do like the look of the new Trophy system. Does anyone know if games that patch trophies in will backtrack our saved games to automatically give us our "trophies" or will we have to start them all over again?

 

 You have to backtrack and start again according to Joystiq. Also, Trophies only apply initially for a handful of games, and wonder how long it will take Sony to apply this to all their first party. Also, it doesnt seem like a mandatory thing that third parties need to do so I wonder how fast the uptake will be. So far only 2 future third parties will have it.

Here is the list:

  • BUZZ! Quiz TV
  • LittleBigPlanet
  • MotorStorm Pacific Rift
  • NBA 09
  • PAIN**
  • PixelJunk Eden
  • Resistance 2
  • SOCOM: Confrontation
  • Super Stardust HD**
  • Warhawk**

** Requires game update to install Trophies. (And requires you to play again to unlock them.)

Update: PS3 Fanboy informs us of the first two third-party games (!) confirmed to feature Trophies: BioShock and Tiki Games' self-published PSN shooter, Novastrike.

nice, but your missing Resistance: Fall of Man. Ted Price announced support a while ago.

I'm interested to see how the Trophies work and I'm glad Sony is implementing a system to keep track of in-game achievements, but this line is fanboy bullshit:

"My Xbox 360 GamerScore is somewhere close to 17,000 right now. If I get an Achievement worth 10 points, that doesn't mean a whole lot at this point. But on the PS3, if I'm at Level 12, I know that every Bronze Trophy brings me one step closer to Level 13."

You mean like how those 10 points take you one step closer to 18,000? What a jackass. Oh, the comment about only playing Gears 2 is ridiculous as well. No one has even really seen much of Microsoft's upcoming games in action.

It was only Chris Roper (Playstation Editor in Chief) and Greg Miller.  I'm just trying to point out that these people both work almost exclusively on playstation games and don't have exactly an unbiased opinion before people crown PS acheivements trophies, better than Microsofts.  The walk all over part actually came from Greg Miller.  Chris just said that he prefered trophies over points but others wouldn't see it that way.I'm not arguing that it won't be nice to have something where nothing was before.  I just think walk all over is a little bold.

I honestly don't get the big idea with Gamerscores and Trophies, I find it ludicrous tbh. Such features will never be a selling point or added bonus for me and I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling this.
Home looks cool but the Trophies bit seems to be its most useless feature to date.

I think its not a selling point as much as it is an upgrade for current users... beacuase there has been A LOT of crying about how 360 has achevements and the PS3 has nothing.... personally i never cared for it but its a nice bonus if anything.

Really? I heard the opposite. Good if they do patch Resistance, give me a good reason to go back and play part 1 b4 part 2 releases. It's going to hurt my eyes going back to play Resistance after playing MGS4 lol.



Eurogamer = 360 biased

IGN = PS3 super biased...



Trophies? is this going to take up more unnecessary space on my harddrive? I really don't see the attraction in trophies/home/gamerscore once I finish a game, chances of going back to it are slim to none unless its a game where you compete against other humans (racing/fighting/shooters). And these trophies aren't going to change a thing.



why does everyone call starcraft to a thread before he is even online, lol. starcraft isnt has half as fanboyalized as he used to be, its gone alil boring to be honest, i just wish i could have the old starcraft for just one day,

the same starcraft that hit his head of the door in a 360 rage, remember that

A few select members on this site should remember that inciden captainpreferences comes to mind
