I'm pretty sure its the developer but the way they determine a trophy's worth, It's like they don't care or are some sort of sadist. Like a game like demon souls, where I personally think that all trophies should be gold in that game because that game is just naturally hard, where games like DC universe, you do 1 race and you get a gold trophy, and Batman: Arkham City. I think completing all the campaigns, challenges, NG+ should warrant a gold but you only get one gold which is basically a "sub-plat" if you look at it because after doing everything, challenges, NG+, campaigns, you'll get the gold, with the plat following right after that. I'm not mad its just that some trophies should warrant a higher reward

    Haha, I’ve thought about this several time while working on the Demolition man trophy It’s definitely deserved a gold standard.

    It is a different grading system, this isn't based on 360 Achievement values.

    They probably put them all on a map and throw darts at it to see what gets the trophies, like the scene in The Wizard.

    It is a whole different system, Helyx posted the point values of each trophy as it pertains to your trophy level.

    For example:

    Level 1 - 0 pts
    Level 2 - 200 pts
    Level 3 - 600 pts
    Level 4 - 1200 pts
    Level 5 - 2400 pts
    Level 6 - 4000 pts
    Level 7 - 6000 pts
    Level 8 - 8000 pts
    Level 9 - 10000 pts
    Level 10 - 12000 pts
    Level 11 - 14000 pts
    Level 12 - 16000 pts
    Level 13 - 24000 pts
    Level 14 - 32000 pts


    And the developer decides how many points each game is worth based on what value they want to assign trophies, retail games vary from as low as 980 to as high as 1490 (atleast based on the last time I looked) for all trophies including Plat.

    I will repeat this, contrary to what anyone on this board tells you, there is little correlation between the 360's system of every retail game being worth 1000 points and PSN's system, the fact that trophies have a fixed value but achievements don't introduces such a fuck-ton amount of noise that its impossible to have any logical correlation.
    Gauss's Piracy Uncertainty Principle: When you pirate a game, that act inherently changes the results of what is to come after your pirating. You can't make any statement with any certainty regarding what would have happened had you not pirated the game.


    Gauss's Rating Rationale:
    0-1: A game whose very existence is abhorrent to all things creative and intelligent.
    2-4: A just plain bad game.
    5-6: A game that has alot of mistakes, but is atleast playable and has some enjoyable sections. Good for a rent.
    7: An average game, should be played at some point
    8: A good game, should buy at some point
    9: A great game, day-one purchase
    10: A game that goes above and beyond the generation, its transcendent.

    the problem is not the worth of the trophies, its just stupid that a demons souls plat should count the same as the hanna montana plat !!! some people have like 60 plat trophies and of those plat 30plus are of games like hanna montana , zuma , iceage , up or whatever , when maybe some one have 40 plat in game like Darksouls COD series GODwar Bioshock , my point is that the game should have a different score base on the difficult of the game perse

    Demon's Souls is so easy, a caveman could do it.

    3D Dot Game Heroes is a respectable platinum, even if done post-patch.
