Two Platinum Trophies: One Campaign, One Multiplayer
You know, I think it's long past time this happened.
I'm not the only person out there who would've had a Platinum Trophy if it weren't for the required online Trophies. This includes last year's Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood; I had all the campaign Trophies but because I had no desire to play it online, I was deprived of the "completionist" Trophy, regardless of how many hours I put into getting everything.
And I'm willing to bet that the door swings both ways. How many Modern Warfare 3 fans will easily nab all the multiplayer Trophies but as they have zero interest in the campaign, they'll never get all the single-player Trophies? As far as I'm concerned, campaign and multiplayer are two entirely different experiences and each should have a Platinum Trophy. Either that, or have two differently colored Trophies, each of which proving your mastery of the offline and online modes.
I really don't believe that one has to go online in order to nab that coveted Platinum. Isn't it hard enough already? Many campaigns require a huge amount of time and dedication if the player wants to earn all the single-player Trophies; why aren't we rewarded for that? And on the flip side, why aren't the multiplayer fans rewarded for similar dedication? It's time, Sony. Give us the appropriate reward for mastery of each.
