I know there's a couple of topics about the new Blog Share for Sony's site, but I felt like this one should be thrown out there. Everyone here loves GB's achievement tracking and we all know Trophy support was sadly yanked from us, so if you haven't already, go here and vote so that sooner or later we can also follow Trophies.
Help Giant Bomb Get Trophy Support
" I've a feeling that blog is being used as a place to collect ideas for a paid version of PSN. I support the call for a new API but internet petitions like that never work. "I agree with the latter statement but since this is something official created by Playstation.blog, it's at least a few steps above an anonymous petition.
" @Killjoi said:While I do agree with the skepticism, this is one of the more realistic and easily implemented features being requested. Most of these systems are already in place for internal purposes and for a brief few days were public." I've a feeling that blog is being used as a place to collect ideas for a paid version of PSN.

" Wait, Giantbomb had trophy support and then removed it? What? What gives? "as far as i can remember sony basically cut them off. i still have my account synced from back when it was up but it never updates and i don't think anyone can see it but me.
Everyone should go and vote for this....NOW!
Trophy support on GB was amazing, particularly for people like me who (for no particular reason) play a LOT more PS3 than they do 360....hence my rubbish gamerscore but suspiciously high frequency of A and B ranks or the PS3 games I got to sync before it went down.....
Make it so!
Well this is good to know either way, really hope we get trophy support back. Achievement tracking is prob my fav part of GB ^_^
" @FunExplosions said:the total votes being beside the nay vote option makes quick glances deceptive. ;p" Wtf. How the fuck does it have more people that are against it? What harm could this possibly do? "1842 votes, 1556 of them were positive, which means only 286 were against. math is fun. "
I hate to burst your guys bubbles but they all ready have this how do you think Giantbomb had the support before? there are quite a few 3rd party websites that use trophy information, while its not nearly as robust as achievement api and such its still there.
the reason Giantbomb was able then unable to acquire trophy info, Is because Sony is Actively refusing them access. *was able to get trophy info at one time now we are no longer*
so if any thing it should be a vote to allow giantbomb access, the leading theory is that Sony refused access because they got embarrassed Whiskey media particularly here has a better front end and api then Sony put out, I mean if you've taken a look at other 3rd party sites its often clunky and limited but Giantbomb took it and made a truly great front end and that made Sony angry they were surpassed.
" @FunExplosions said:Damn. I suck. Anyway, I just voted twice more with my two old names. Bumping this thread can't hurt, either." Wtf. How the fuck does it have more people that are against it? What harm could this possibly do? "1842 votes, 1556 of them were positive, which means only 286 were against. math is fun. "
I totally feel the same way as you do.
" Done. Maybe it'll be enough of a push to finally collect all the shards in Infamous to get the platinum trophy. "
Oh, and the link is broken. I get a "Page Not Found". But then again, the whole website seems to be broken, nothing seems to work there. Anyone else getting this?
Sweet, consider it signed. I really don't get why Sony won't release this info, it works against building a community for the ps3 outside the official site, I don't know if such a site even exists. Is it possible that Sony wants total control over their community?
it's just the way they display it, the overall number of votes is shown below and the number above is given a + or - according to the yes/no votes... so there's quite a few yes votes really :D
" What the hell? There are more no votes? "
*edit* alas, I should read past the first page before responding, everyone else has said this lots already :P
Also, done! Really hope they add this, it'll add a whole extra world of appeal to my ps3 for me... (sigh for me being an achievement junkie)
