GTAIV Trophies Coming October 27
Grand Theft Auto IV is one of the best games of the generation, and many gamers are just searching for excuses to play it through again. Well, PlayStation 3 owners, how's about those Trophies?
According to Gamers Platform, Rockstar has just sent out an e-mail alert that says the long-awaited Trophies will be headed to the PS3 version of GTAIV on Monday, October 27. As expected, they will not be retroactive, which means you'll have to replay the game in order to nab 'em all. For many, this is good incentive to start up a new game, especially once they see the Trophy list for the game, which is rumored to be quite large. However, many PS3 owners are hoping this doesn't become a trend: while GTAIV launched before Trophies arrived via firmware update, there are still titles releasing today that don't come with Trophy support. Sometimes, the developers will deliver them later, but as they're almost never retroactive, many gamers consider the Trophy enhancement as "too little, too late." Then again, with something as good as GTAIV, it shouldn't be that difficult to coerce someone to start up a new adventure. Besides, there are a few of you who haven't played it yet, right...?
As for the downloadable content exclusive to the Xbox 360 version, and all the rumors saying DLC is coming for the PS3 version, we're still waiting on that. Rockstar has said there will be DLC, but we just don't know when, and that's frustrating for GTA fans.
