Thanks for the info Jeff.
A Few Last-Minute Bits of PlayStation 4 Info
Plus this, apparently.
as for syncing, i am guessing, xbox is one system so it didn't need to sync. sony has ps3, ps4 and vita and they all show and register trophies at that same time so it needs to sync somehow.
i wonder if 360 and xbone works this way now?
that's not what syncing means in this case, i only have a ps3 & you always have to manually sync just to get any changes to appear on the sony site, otherwise all trophies are strored locally on the console
it takes a while since i bet it's manually going through each game, so the more trophies/games you have, the longer it takes (i can confirm it taking longer as i got more trophies & started more games with 0 or 1 trophy out of 20+ each)
to speed this up on ps4, they probably have a timestamp system that would skip already synced trophies, probably like SVN/GIT/dropbox version control
I've always been a fan of the Dualshock myself, though the 360 pad is a fine controller too. So hearing that both of them are improved is great, and given that I'm completely in camp PS4 for launch at least, it's good to hear that you feel so positively about the new model.
