No Trophies But "Required Honors" For Soul Calibur IV
With firmware update 2.40, the talk of the gaming world quickly began to revolve around two very special features that came with the update: the in-game XMB and Trophy support. But as this is a relatively new occurrence, many new games still aren't with the program just yet.
Namco's fighting blockbuster, Soul Calibur IV, is right around the corner, and perhaps not surprisingly, it will not boast the ability to have customized in-game music, and it will not support Trophies. Of course, the latter could be added at some point in the future, but bear in mind that Namco has a replacement already built into the game: Honor. According to Talk PlayStation, you can unlock these "required honors," which are essentially Achievements or Trophies unique to the game. When you unlock one of these honors, you'll know because a message will pop up and inform you of your success. No, they're not Trophies, but they're something to strive for, and they're certainly better than nothing.
We're hoping that Namco sends us our review copy within the next few days, and when we get it, we'll dive in and then - not long after - give y'all our analysis. We're not about to knock points off due to a lack of custom music or Trophies, in case you're wondering.
