    yep i agree with that, online trophies need to go to sumthing else or not at all, if i want to get a plat in 10 years time i shld be able too, trophies, are part of games selling point today, and even says "trophies" on the back of alot of games, so not being able to get trophies that were sold to me to get, in my mind is a blatent rip off, as goes the same for companies that refuse to fix ther glitched trophies , (curse u thq homefront)

    I usually like to get the 08 and 09 games (well the ones without trophies) because I can play them on the PS3 without worrying about the trophies. The Mercenaries 2 trophy patch is freaking smart and all the game companies should freaking do it (yet those who played online should also be compensated since those who didn't get the online trophy should've gotten the trophy as well)

    These games should be illegal and penalized.
    Stupid companies that put online trophies knowing they are going to take out the multiplayer at some point.

    I was a bit pissed because i bought LOTR Conquest,looking forward to getting and then i found out the servers had shut for it.I mean,i wasnt to know but it didnt really matter anyway as it cost me 3 off of ebay .but why are they mostly sports games,i know some are a couple of years old and what not but like nemec8 says,if you feel like getting a in 10 years time,i think you should be able too.

    You should include why all of them are unobtainable, instead of just a few. That is an embarrassingly long list though.

    I agree with nemec8 and john3007, if I buy a game and play it years down the line I'd be pissed if I could never complete the game 100% because of some gimmick that the company uses to boost sales around release (Online trophies and the fear that they won't be around for long) If game companies write the DLC into the disc, how hard would it be to include a bot program where multiplayer is available after the servers go down through a short and simple "activation patch" whereupon once the servers are closed, the bot program activates, allowing for people to still get the trophies. That or private server hosting in the case of boosting trophies. If the code is on the disc, it would be almost no additional effort on the part of the company to include such a contingency, but then again maybe these companies fear that people would just wait for price reductions to purchase games. The allmighty $$ afterall dictates what they do, as well as their hopes and fears. So perhaps a DLC although that would be as much a slap in the face of gamers who purchased their title (if not more so) as being locked out of obtaining the trophies at all.

    What can be worse though is not the server shutting down, but that you get a game and the multiplayer requires more than two people to get it started. Front Mission: Evolved is beyond stupid with its minimum of 4 players to play online...online that counts towards the trophy that is. If no one is playing the game then its the same effect as not having a server anymore.

    Following that logic, then RF:G, Riddick, Far Cry 2 and FEAR 2 wouldn't be plattable, yet there are still some people getting the plat because they organize boosting sessions. Just because the online is dead it doesn't mean you can't find people to play with just to get the plat.

    I didn't say it was unplattable. I was just continuing with Trunksu25's train of thought.

    I hear that Diner Dash, isn't a game with a plat, but one I made the mistake of playing (fiancee bought it for herself, when we first got our PS3), organizing a boosting session was the only way to go about getting 100%, but that still took a few months to get 4 people (with 2 controllers apiece) together for the 5 hour mind numbing grind to that silver trophy "Workin Nine to Five" technically I think the expectation for earning the trophy (if the online wasn't already as good as dead) was to have 8 players total, luckily one can team up with themselves using the second controller which certainly helps in that very hard to 100% PSN title.

    I think it would be safe to assume you could add Rock Band 3 to this list. Since the pro-guitar is no longer in production, if you don't have one, you're never gonna platinum this game.

    Fight night round 4 and champion (not sure about champion but FNR4 is unplatable since it's too late to be #1 in three different weight classes)
