    Trophy Patches for Older Games

    As you may have heard, Sony has lost nearly $3.50 million dollars. If they were to patch *ALL* older games without trophies (EX. MGS4, COD4) they would make so much money as people who previously traded in classics like COD4 or MGS4 would buy them immediately and earn the trophies. So, why have they not? Because its a fact of them being lazy. If they want to make this a full concept that most of Playstation 3 users could enjoy earning, they should stop half-assing it and fully support the concept 110%. Do you know how many hardcore trophy hunters (most on this site ) would buy these games again to earn the trophies? So, they could fully support it or let it blow away in the wind. Especially since their "rival" Microsoft has achievements on ALL their games, showing they support it. So Sony, would you take up to 5% of your time to release trophy patches on all Playstation 3 and Playstation Network (In 2 days Sony Entertainment Network) games and make a decent profit or continue to lose money. Your choice.
    I still play Black Ops because me and brother have 2 PS3's and share a copy of Modern Warfare 3. So that is why I play it sometimes. Thats the *ONLY* time I play Black Ops! When brother is not playing MW3, I am!

    Depends more on the developers actually.

    Best example: Virtua Fighter 5.
    Look, both the PS3 and Xbox 360 have Virtua Fighter 5. VF5 on the PS3 had no trophies. It was released on the PS3 before the 360. The developers decided they should port the new updated version of VF5 to the 360. So they added achievements and everything is updated.

    The developers of VF5 just completely dropped the PS3 version without giving it any updates or trophies.

    So all in all it ain't really up to Sony, it really depends on the developers.

    Nice idea and all but it's fair to say you wont see trophies for those games till they get spit on and shined up for Mega HD release on PS4, though i could see rereleasing them on Vita as an option.

    I understand your frustration as MGS 4 is a game i beat to holy hell and i'm a bit gutted trophies never arrived for it, twice as gutted though when having blitzed Peace Walker on PSP i see it get announced on PS3 with trophies.

    Another idea, though slightly rage baiting, is to sell DLC trophy packs for old games selectively, get fans to help decide what sort of trophies go into the pack too, sell them for a couple of quid each and it's a friendly, optional way to generate sales and community spirit. Not going to recoup huge amounts of cash back but hey it would be a start.

    Sony themselves don't do the patches for trophies without the developers of the individual games creating the trophies. If the developers don't make the trophies, there's nothing Sony can do. So laziness on Sony's end isn't it, like what Sync said.

    I know the developers choose and make the trophies, but Sony does not try to pursue them to make the patches.

    I am pretty sure Sony has better things to do than chase down developers and harp them into making trophy patches.

    Just like a few others have said, it is up to the developers. I have heard and read stuff about this topic and apparently it is harder than it looks to put triggers in a game to pop up a trophy. The reason Uncharted could d it without hesitation was because of the medals. They just tied all the trophies to the medals. It would be pretty awesome if developers like Kojima, Infinity Ward, and Insomniac went and patched the games with trophies, but in reality they have way more important things on their minds. Like there new ames that will 100% have trophies.

    that's exactly what i was thinking. sony has a lot on their plates and hunting down developers to trophy patch older games is not high on the list. not to mention it's not free. i don't know why people think they can just patch a game like that and it not cost anything. some people need to really grow up

    This is one of those threads that somebody new posts about every 6 weeks, but I honestly don't mind that in this instance, BECAUSE THIS IS SOMETHING I FEEL VERY STRONGLY ABOUT. SEE I'M WRITING IN ALL CAPS.

    Go put trophies in NFS: Carbon. NOW.

    Even Need for Speed has more important things to worry about than trophies for their older games, like trying to put out a good Need for Speed game that can compare to Undergounds 1 and 2 and/or Most Wanted, something they have failed to do in years.

    They may be good games, but they can't live up to the greatness that is Undergrounds 1 and 2 and Most Wanted.

    Unless you have a PS2 and can find Need for Speed Undergrounds 1 and 2 or Most Wanted, you're kinda too late to get a NFS game that I can guarantee you is good. :/

    The reason being is cost. It's going to cost man hours for those companies to put in trophies for older games like MGS 4 and AC 1. The reason why MGS 4 has none because of this and to be honest I don't blame em at all. Sony isn't pushing it so the companies isn't going to put in any trophies instead they are focusing on other projects. I myself personally wants MGS 4 and AC 1 trophies yet if they don't than that's cool to me they are working on something else more grand.

    My PS3 is backwards compatible. So maybe I will try oone one day. Isn't the Hot Pursuit on PS3 any good?

    It's pretty good, but it's not all that great. It's worth buying if you like racing games, but mind you there's no Split-screen multiplayer like imo all racing games should have like the previous generations of games I played.

    I think it's also more an issue of money than laziness. Patching each and every single game is not easy, and it takes time. I think they'd end up spending more money on it than they'd make from it.

    Trophy patches for older games isn't a bad idea, but who will buy any of those old games now? It would be nice to get some trophies for Spiderman Web of Shadows since that was a good game.
