I'm glad Giant Bomb has finally allowed PS3 users to sync up they're PSN names to the site. Since I use my PS3 more than the 360, due mostly because I don't have to pay-to-play online anymore, I'll be syncing my name as soon as possible.

Good job guys.  This is one I've been waiting for.

I am really excited about this.  Hopefully they can work out the kinks as I only advanced 6 positions in the last 6-7 hours (from 564 to 556). :-(

My PS3 trophies have been stuck at #350 in line building for 12 hours now.  Whats going on?  Anyways nice support once this gets hashed out.

@snide: Would it not be possible to apply some hysteresis to this problem? If you guys are updating the trophy data nightly, you can figure out for yourself the last played or last trophies earned information. I don't know how granular you need this input data to be but down to within a 24 hour period seems like it should be sufficient. Just start tracking the PS3 users trophies over time and figure out the last played information based on what was not there the day before. It requires a little more processing, but i've heard this is the sort of thing that computers are good at :) 
 
Cheers! 
 
ps. Great work on this initial PSN trophy support. I'm a very happy PS3 user!

@JaguarCRO: Yeah...don't feel too bad, I went from 994 to 982 in the last 8 hours or so. So still a ways to go! Very happy for the feature tho, so now I have proof to backup my general awesomeness at Batman lol.

Is it down? I signed up yesterda and was #866 in the queue, 16 hours later and it's #844. My Xbox live profile was #865 in the queue and that got done in about 5 minutes. 
 
Also, there are a number of games that don't show up publicly on the PSN site. Shatter, Prototype, 龍が如く3 are among these. They will show up under your own profile when you are logged in, but no one else can see your trophies in these whether they are logged in or not. Sites like ps3trophycard.com seem to be able to grab this data somehow though because the games will show up there. So if you are just grabbing data from the public PSN page you'll be missing a number of games and trophies.

I don't see the ability to sync PS3 trophies in my profile -- just Wow, Steam and 360. Am I missing something?

@insomniac2587: They're having some issues with PSN trophy support and are trying to contact Sony to fix the issue.  I believe there's a brief message on top of the Achievements page as well.

Is anyone else having trouble with this? I went to my profile, hit Achievements and all it gives me is XBL, Steam, and WOW, No PSN. Am I doing this wrong? Can Someone please help?

Yeah I'm number 604 in the queue, I was 618 over 24 hours ago, this is gonna take a while.

Its a Sony issue.. I belong to another site that has been struggling with Sony on this exact issue. They come right out and say Sony blocks their servers. I assume once GB figured out how to grab this info Sony came in and said "Not so fast".

Come on Sony... don't be a dick here. I WANT MY GEEK FUN GODDAMMIT

#272 Posted by NoEvilPeople (1 posts) -

It doesn't work for me.  When I click achievements, I only see xbox, steam, and wow.  Where's PSN?  I just signed up, so maybe it's broken for new users?

From your GiantBomb achievements page you should see this:
 
"Due to technical problems with Sony trophy system, we currently only allow syncing to XBOX, STEAM and WoW. We are currently trying to contact Sony to resolve the problem."

man I was so excited for this. my page still has my broken PSN account on it. says "user does not exist" 
 
I wish sony would get their head of out their ass. if they are gonna allow trophies on facebook then why not here?

Wow... I totally forgot about this.  Has Giant Bomb given an ETA on when this will get fixed?  I got a platinum to add to my collection of S Ranks ready to go.
