    So now we're getting free trophies just for paying money? Doesn't sound any better than paying someone else to get the trophies for you.

    Exactly, and I want to do Cross-Save. I think that's an awesome feature. But why can't the trophy list just be one trophy list? Why should we get more trophies just for Cross-Saving?

    Look I forked over the $300 for my vita and honestly I have been waiting for something good like this. Lets be honest the vita needed better games and the cross save feature is great. So you are complaining about getting two plats for the price and time of one? Do you also complain when you get a buy one get one free deal at a local store? Some people just arent happy inless they are complaining. Thank you sony for this wonderful trophy hunter present!

    I like how they did it with PSAS though, as it allowed me to play it twice and earn double. I liked Sound Shapes way of doing it too, as I was able to just play it once.

    If you don't want to do it, DON'T DO IT. Play the game twice and earn it twice if you want. If you want 2 at once play it once. Be happy they're giving us an option and quite complaining about something completely avoidable for yourself.

    Thanks to Bladia for the amazing Sig and Avy.

    It's lame and they should have shared list. Error by Sony to allow this.
    My FAV plats:Bioshock, Fallout, Crysis, Dead Space, Dead Island, RE, Prince of Persia and all the different versions of those games.

    It was done on purpose to encourage trophy enthusiasts to purchase a Vita. It is in no way an 'error', this was all planned.

    I'm not at all against it.

    Sure it may seem cheap, but why would you have to do everything twice to obtain the same platinum, if you did everything already? Of course you have the option to do that, but if you've earned the trophies already, then I don't see why you can't have them again when switching platforms.

    Example, I got a very, very time consuming trophy that I worked hard to get on the PS3. The game I got it from is also available on the Vita, and I can cross-save to get all of the trophies I earned on the PS3 version, including that time consuming trophy. Would spending the excessive amount of time to get the same trophy I already earned worth it? I say no. Besides, they're just trophies, it's not like they cause any harm to anything anyway.

    Honestly I could care less
    but people will do what they wanna do

    Heres my take on this topic
    so you have the game on ps3 and you plat the game
    Then you decide to buy the same game for a handheld but say hey I rather not get the trophies given to me automatically
    so now the question is did you buy the game because you enjoyed it and like to play on the go
    or did you simply buy it because it has more trophies to offer?

    In fact more games should do it. If anyone here has platted Metal Gear Solid 2 they'll know how insane and hard are the last VR Missions, if it had cross-double Plat (it doesn't) it'd be crazy not to use it. There are just some crazy hard trophies I'd never ever do again, and you've done that hard work already, regardless of the platform.

    Get the fun ones, cross-save the ones where you have to work.

    For me, my trophies show what I've accomplished in my games. If I have a trophy, then there is some action I did to earn it. If I have two trophies for one action, that to me feels like cheating, and lowers my perceived value of every other trophy I've earned, because when you look at my trophy count/level, it's a lie. I don't ask others to adopt the same opinion as me, but I have almost 5 years of gaming invested in my profile and to me "double platinums" or "cross save platinums" are a HUGE tarnish on a collection, in the same league as hacked or bought platinums. That's why I'll never be able to play sound shapes or MotorStorm RC on my PS3.
    Hey. Hey. Look. Look at me. I'm playing video games.

    3 Demon's Souls platinums = hacked SOCOM platinum

    Sounds legit.

    No no no that's not what I mean. I'm strictly talking about these "free" double platinums, via cross save. If you have to work for a platinum each time, there's nothing wrong with that. I even got the NFS:MW platinum on Vita, and I'm working on my second go through on PS3, since it's not a cross save game with separate lists.

    To make it simpler, my opinion on trophies is this: If there is a trophy on your account that you have unlocked that you did not specifically unlock for yourself, it is a false representation of your abilities, and your trophy count/level becomes less meaningful.

    I don't own a vita, but I do agree with this^^ Why bitch about something that purely optional and free to do? Some people are too ungrateful for getting free things.

    But you did unlock it yourself just on another console first, it's implemented so that you can continue where you left off on the home console

    And representation of your abilities? This isn't the Olympics lol
    who cares about trophy levels when the top 100 players or so are all hackers on the leader boards

    So what about those who used an exploit to get a trophy easier ie the last of us difficulty trophies
    uncharted 2, tweak exploit on another playthrough not finished
    tomb raider, the shopaholic glitch
    Does it really tarnish Abilities when the only thing youve given the game is time?

    I'm all for it. So far I haven't utilise the feature, but I could at any time with Sound Shapes. I also bought Motostorm RC with the intention o taking advantage of the extra platinum. I do appreciate how some folks here are against it, but aren't necessarily being judgemental towards those who support it.

    Thanks to Thunder for the platbar!!!
