So, uh, yeah. I'm experiencing the craziest shit right now. I just got a PS4(Special thanks to @yummylee but more on that later!) and I was downloading my backlog of PS+ games. Among them were Hotline Miami and Spelunky. I've already played and enjoyed them on PS3, but I wanted to see them in exclusive 10803Dp60FPSultraboogaloo mode.
Spelunky was being fucky with its update not wanting to install but Hotline Miami worked fine. Then I was looking for Hotline Miami and it was gone. That's when I noticed I had TWO Spelunky icons, but one was actually Hotline Miami!
I played Hotline some and everything was fine. I was getting trophies and having fun and whatnot. But it didn't look right. I wanted that hot cover art all up in my dashboard, so I tried deleting them both to reinstall them. Spelunky deleted surprisingly quick, but Hotline Miami ended up causing some epic crash with my PS4 and caused it to go totally catatonic. I couldn't even shut the thing down. All menus were unresponsive and also completely empty. The only option was pulling the cord entirely. So I yanked it and prayed. Turned my PS4 back on and... Spelunky was still there, and so was Hotline Miami! But, I had just deleted them? And they each had their actual icons. Everything worked out, right? Well, sorta...
As you can see from this image, there's no Hotline Miami trophy list. Even though I had just got done playing some levels and earning some trophies. And that's when I noticed this...
These trophies were earned... while I was playing Hotline Miami! I was actually really excited to see what I was getting because they seemed to imply I was doing some impressive shit. Not only that, notice how I completed 100% of the journal before completing 50%. It also seems to be incredibly difficult to earn as the Ultra Rare status seems to indicate only 0.1% of all players across the world have earned it.
So I'm not sure what happened, but somehow Hotline Miami merged with Spelunky's trophy list and deleted its own trophy list. No amount of syncing seems to change anything. And I'm getting a bunch of ultra rare trophies in the process.
I don't know what do. I don't know if this is going to mess anything up in the long term or not, but this was certainly an interesting revelation. I've been a member of the next gen for less than a week and my life is already more exciting.
