@SomeJerk said:How many of you would not be on the 360 if it lacked gamerscore?
I definitely choose to buy games for 360 over PS3 because of the achievements. And I never spend that much time on PS3 games because I never really figured out how the trophy system actually works.
It is pretty much the same as achievements, besides the fact that you get an extra Platinum trophy for getting every other trophy.
And instead of numbers associated with achievements (5 points, 10 points, and so forth) trophies are divided in three categories (Bronze, Silver, Gold). A 5-10G achievement would be a bronze trophy, for example. Gold trophies are usually the ones for finishing a game (or getting 100% in a game) and would be 75-150G achievements on 360.
On top of all that, you are assigned a trophy level based on your total amount of trophies.
