Do trophies have points values?

I was looking in the Dead Space strategy guide at work a couple days ago and noticed something interested. In the breakdown of the trophies for the game it listed a points value for each one. 15 for Bronze, 30 for Silver, and so forth. I don't think I've ever seen this again anywhere else. Basically, do trophies have points values or is this just something that particular strategy guide made up?

The strategy guide probably had the numbers for achievements. Maybe you haven't heard, but Dead Space is on the Xbox as well.

I'm not going to make a snide remark comment in reaction to that. I'm fighting the urge.

No, these were on the trophies part of the guide. They do not match the values given for the achievements on the Xbox. Every Bronze trophy had the same value and so on.

Thats correct, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum each carry a % or value. Call it XP. Once you reach an X amount of points, you lvl up in your profile. But unlicke 360, not all games carry the same amount of points in their trophies.

Sony should make these "experience points" viewable.

Yep, they should, at least to let us focus on the ones we prefer, since we cant know if 2 bronze trophies give the same XP etc, etc. I guess its part of the system being just copied from the 360, thus achievements that have a wide range of values, have to be placed into a X amount of XP and 3 different categories.

Level 4 - 1,200
Level 5 - 2,400
Level 6 - 4,000
Level 7 - 6,000
Level 8 - 8,000
Level 9 - 10,000
