    Does anybody know if the Playstation 3 version of Soul Calibur IV will have trophies?

    I haven't heard anything about it having trophies so I would say that by default I won't have but we might get it later. You never know.

    I haven't heard anything either, but I don't see a reason why they would pass it up. They do claim the only difference between the 360 version and PS3 are the exclusive characters, but interpret that as you will.

    I don't think there are, but it might be possible that they decide to patch them in at some point.

    It's disappointing the lack of use these trophies are getting. I know it's still early days but a good few weeks have passed since their introduction. You'd think that Sony would have said that all new games released after a certain date would have to include trophies by default?

    I hope there are trophies, but it's not like it's going to prevent me from getting this game for the ps3. This is the kind of game that does not need the extra trophy incentive. It's going to be awesome no matter what.

    Games that are too late in development to feel the need to add trophies, probably won't get them. Like SC4 for example. I hope it does somewhere down the line though.

    Most big games this year will have them though, with many getting patched.. and more then likely majority 09 games, if not all, will have trophies.

    Well, I just found this post where the author says that the PS3 version will neither have trophies nor custom soundtracks. It would definitely nice to hear something from an official source about this.

    I think it has some sort of "honors" system like the 360 version's achievements, but it does not have actual trophy support.  Most you can do is hope for a patch.  As far as waiting for an official source, you don't really need to do that when hundreds of people got their copies early and are posting all sorts of info.

    Except Achievements have been out for years. It took them a few years just to copy them, and now it's a slow rolling clumsy transition. I was really excited about trophies until they turned out to be utter garbage. You can't be just managing to pull your shit together during year 3, it's embarassing.

    Disappointing.  The two versions (PS3/360) are so similar that a very small difference, like trophy/achievement support, is enough to sway me.

    Seems like the 360 version for me.  Though I preferred Darth Vader over Yoda.  Oh well.

    so there might not be trophies, but how do you guys feel about not having rumble in the game? this is what's making me think twice about picking up this game.

    Having now played the game you'd think with the honours system in place and the link to the gamertag with your profile that trophies would be an easy patch?

    From this link:

    Super Stardust™ HD, a PLAYSTATION Network-exclusive released last year, will be the first game to leverage the Trophies system and will offer a variety of trophies**. The following first-party games are also slated to offer Trophy support:

    · BUZZ!™ Quiz TV

    · LittleBigPlanet™

    · MotorStorm™ Pacific Rift

    · NBA 09 - PS3

    · PAIN**

    · PixelJunk™ Eden

    · Resistance 2™

    · SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation

    · Warhawk™**


    And then read/watch this.

    Especially:

    "Here's the unfortunate news: you'll need to earn Trophies in games that are patched to include them even if you've already completely beaten the game. For example, if GTAIV received a trophy update, you'd need to play through it again – even if you achieved 100% completion – in order to earn its Trophies.

    From the sound of things, though, there's not a lot of movement in terms of already-released titles receiving Trophy support. According to Sony, developers would need to go back in and add the "trigger values" that unlock a Trophy, something we could only expect larger developers to undertake on titles that already have Xbox 360 achievements."


    So basically, if Namco wanted to add in Trophies, they could do it in a downloadable patch. And you'd have to re-achieve anything that awarded a trophy no matter what. Seems unlikely that they'll add it, but it's possible.

    Same here... doesn't seem like you can copy save games.

    Due to this, they may be able to take our in-game achievements and turn them into Trophies pretty easily, if/when a Patch comes-out.

    Even with no Trophies, no 1080p, and no rumble support, I still like the PS version over XBOX.  I hate the XBOX controller for fighting games.

    That's very interesting that the game is locked. Very, very interesting. Because that means essentially everything is in place (in a similar style to Burnout) to instantly allow a trophy patch. All it would need to do is to install the patch, scan your honours and then award you the relevent trophies. I wouldn't be surprised if Namco weren't already working on this?
