    Another PS4 "trophies thread"

    I'm wondering if trophies for PS4 will be in essence separate from the PS3 for same titles. For example, I know that BF4 and Watch Dogs will be coming out to both the PS3 and PS4. Does this mean that if I had both of these games, would it be possible to earn trophies in both and have them counted twice? I believe this is the same for the PS3 and Vita in which titles appear for both.

    I'd put my money on they will, I'm willing to bet PS3 will get games for at least a year after PS4 comes out. That's not saying PS4 won't get something exclusive, but they can't just kill off the PS3 library that quick... or can they

    My guess is yes, you will be able to earn a separate platinum for each. No telling though if you will be able to have one profile that contains your PS3, PS4, and Vita trophies together. It would probably be convenient for them to put everything together, but on the other hand they may wish to have a clean break to give a chance to have hacker-free leaderboards for a little bit.

    Sony has already stated the PS4 is an addition to the PS family, not a replacement for the PS3. Expect support for the PS3 for as long as publishers are willing to produce games for it. I'm thinking at least 3 or 4 years before Sony winds it up.

    In terms of separate PS3 and PS4 trophy lists, I suspect the answer is yes. It's not technically the same game on both mediums (different SKU) and we've seen a similar scenario for PS3 + Vita trophy lists. I can see that being extended to PS4, given the aforementioned PS "family" of products.

    It will probably be up to the developers just like right now with PS3 and Vita's trophy lists. I'm thinking they will make separate sets.

    I would think that as long as you plat 'Game X' on either system, it shows that you've platted 'Game X. That is to say I don't believe there will be a distinction unless the game is only available on one system or the other.

    I think it depends on what the developer wants to do. There are different ways the PS3/Vita trophies are handled. Some have seperate lists and when you earn a trophy on one, you earn it on the other (Sound Shapes, Sly 4), others have one trophy list for both versions of the game (Guacamelee!, Retro City Rampage) and some have to separate lists entirely (Playstation All-Stars). Since there's so many different ways this is handled, I don't think Sony really cares how a games trophies are earned on different platforms.
