Hands Up

Who out there is really into Trophy collecting on PS3, who also owns a 360?
 
See, I like seeing my Gamerscore climb on my 360, but I have no care for my trophy count on PS3.
 
I think it's because your gamerscore features more prominently in the 360 menu's, also I seem to notice other players scores as well.
 
Whilst the trophy score on PS3 seems tucked away.
 
Thoughts?

Don't care too much for either. Though I'll put more effort towards my trophy collection than achievements should I choose.

i dont care for either, but if there's one more appealing, its easily the 360 achievements, just because they all go to 1 single number

Indeed achievements are much more satisfying. My dream for the future is that one day, all games you play on all consoles will converge into one gamerscore. I'm a dreamer. It'll never happen.

Yeah I find achievements more attractive. I don't mind getting trophies, but they just... happen. Achievements I hunt out.

The fact that your trophy list has to sync each time you navigate to that part of the cross media bar makes me never want to look at them. It is such a clunky interface compared to the 360 dashboard.

thats really a ridiculous thing to say though. i mean come on, it takes ZERO effort on your part.

And two seconds to synch, really. 
Unless someone is using some ancient dial-up connection.  
 
 
Edit: 
Also, I don't really care about trophies nor achivements.  
The notification thingy is even off on both my 360 and PS3.  
 
I must say I do enjoy, you know, playing the games. 
But I guess that's just me

Trophies, mainly because I started collecting them way before achievements.

Posted by LiquidPrince

I prefer Trophies for a reason I don't feel like typing out again.

Has Sony mentioned anything about the original plan to have the trophy room in home recently? That is an idea I thought was pretty cool and has not come to pass yet.
Posted by SilentCommando

I like both, but prefer Achievements slightly more.

I think it just faded out and died. A shame, really. That could boost both the popularity of Trophies and Home

I'm not a huge fan of trophies, like someone said - if they happen, they happen but I have no real incentive to go out hunting for them like I did with the GiantBomb quests.

I'm the opposite of most people i guess. Don't care much for achievements, but i kinda like trophies. 
That said, i won't go hunting them down until after i've finished the game and am just looking for a way to extend my time with it. I also havn't platinumed anything.

I'm not much into getting achievements, I occasionally look at my friends trophies though to see what game he currently has. But beyond that, I have no interest in being a rabbit.

Posted by bhhawks78

I started getting achievements first, along with the controller/online service/the multiplatform games that have differences usually run better on 360 means I basically ignore trophies.
 
That said if Sony just 100% copied the 1000 points a game system so I could easily just add them together maybe even on this site I'd care more about trophies.
 
(I'm not obsessed with achievements either but I do go back when finished with games and try to get the ones that sound fun, not collectible/multiple playthroughs/online ones usually though)

I actually care more about getting all the trophies for my PS3 games but I care more about the overall score my 360.

Posted by Stackboy

I think half the problem is it's not on the main menu.

Posted by ChickenPants

Don't really care for either.
I think points-whores like Jeff are absolutely insane.

Posted by Damian

I'll go for that stuff if they seem like fun to achieve/collect, or if I'm just looking for a justification to keep playing a game I've thoroughly beaten otherwise (same thing really).
But the points or what have you don't do it for me, so I'm keeping my hand down.
