GC 2008: Trophy Support Ramping Up
When Trophies first arrived with firmware update 2.40 (or with update 2.41, if you weren't lucky enough to nab the troublesome 2.40 before Sony yanked it down for repairs), there weren't many PlayStation 3 titles that supported the new feature. But the patches quickly began to come, and at Leipzig, more future games have been confirmed to support Trophies.
According to the new site, PS3Trophies.org, more newly revealed games will have Trophy support. Some of them are big-name titles like Alpha Protocol, Mirror's Edge, and Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. You can see the list there via the link, and it's good news for all PS3 owners. It appears we're still not sure when it comes to games like Need for Speed Undercover and Sonic Unleashed, but other than that, things are shaping up quite nicely for the future. Sure, it's a bummer that most all Trophies for current titles aren't retroactive, but that drawback will soon be forgotten with time. It won't be long before most all high-profile PS3 games will have Trophy support, so all you hardcore gamers out there will always have something to strive for.
So if you're wondering whether or not your most anticipated PS3 games will use Trophies, you can probably expect that they will, especially if it's a first-party title. We know many weren't too happy with the lack of Trophy support when the feature finally came, but don't worry; everything is coming around rather quickly.
