Classic PS3 Trio Won't Get Trophies
Even though firmware update 2.40 is currently unavailable if you didn't download it before Sony removed it from their servers, you know about the Trophies that come with it. As most gamers are finding out, these Trophies aren't retroactive, but if you haven't played some of the early PS3 classics just yet, you may have some new incentive to try them them now.
However, as most all first-party titles and many of the more popular third-party games will be adding Trophies in the near future, we're compiling a list of well-known games that won't have Trophies. So far, we've heard from both Insomniac and Infinity Ward on the matter: Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction and Resistance: Fall of Man won't be getting Trophies. Of course, these games have already been out for a while so this may not affect a lot of you, but it's worth mentioning. You wouldn't want to go back and play through those games for the sole reason of getting Trophies when they don't even exist, right?
We'll do what we can to keep you updated on the Trophy issue, and if any other significant titles will pass on the option. For now, you can certainly expect many of the biggest upcoming titles to have Trophies (like Resistance 2, for example), so there's no need for concern in that area.
