70% Of PS3 Games Support Trophies
Yes, firmware update 2.40 and all the glory that comes with it was officially unveiled yesterday, much to the delight of many a PlayStation 3 owner. However, now that we know Trophy support will become available tomorrow (July 2, baby!), many are asking: how many of the current PS3 titles will support them?
According to TalkPlayStation citing this month's issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine UK, about 70% of all games currently available for the PS3 will support Trophies. Here's the quote in question from the article: "PlayStation 3 achievements - called trophies - will be unveiled soon, and 70% of games will already be compatible." That's good news, although we expected that a great many games will boast Trophy compatibility...we get the sneaking suspicion that many developers and publishers knew they were coming before we did. In the future, you can probably expect an even higher percentage of PS3 software to support Trophies; the majority of Xbox 360 titles have some Achievements to strive for, yes?
We imagine more news will come out of firmware update 2.40, just because it's so freakin' big for PS3 owners. Don't worry; you won't miss a beat; it's pretty exciting from a hardware standpoint. Is it hot in here, or what?
