For those thinking that trophy support is just one patch away — think again. Much like many gamers, I am too guilty of blaming Sony for not adding trophy support to certain titles such as; MGS4, Valkyria Chronicles, Heavenly Sword and Resistance Fall of Man, just to name a few. It seems as if trophy support is just a patch away…well, think again.
Recently, Senior Community/Marketing Manager at Insomniac Games, James Stevenson explain the process of getting trophy support on older PS3 titles via a PSblog comment pane response, which explains in detail why we shouldn’t be so hard on Sony and these Dev companies over the lack of trophy support on older PS3 titles.
“Not nearly as easy as you think (involving re-opening long dormant code, assigning people to it, testing it, sending it through certification, etc etc) – meanwhile, all of those resources code, and are being used to make Resistance 3 the best game possible”
Although I think Kojima would have a similar response to why MGS4 doesn’t have Trophy Support, I think we can all agree that it’s probably the game we would choose over the rest and still hope that one day it gets Trophy support.
