    Does this confirm PS4 trophy continuance?

    So, after the reveal the other night, I got to thinking about the whole PS+ aspect of it. If PS+ is to continue and you will have access to PS3, PS4, and Vita games, I'm thinking that we will most likely keep our accounts we have now. This would have to mean that we keep our avatars, trophies, etc... Thoughts?

    Advanced Casuals.


    Because normal casuals have maybe one plat at most.

    It wouldn't make any sense to not let the already existent trophies not carry over to the PS4. It only makes sense to me that it would be like the Vita, the trophies carry over unless there's no trophies for the PS4 (which we can be sure by now isn't the case).

    Carry trophies over is senseless they should be re-earned if people want them. As you should be making a new account for that console just my opinion. Everything should be fresh

    You couldn't be more wrong my friend.

    Achievement systems engender brand loyalty. Trophy hunters are brand evangelists. Platinum trophies are more meaningful than Gamerscore points. Core gamers buy 10 x more games than our casual counterparts, trophy hunters buy even more. Our loyalty, in large part, is tied to our trophy cards and our PS Store accounts.

    Remove existing trophies from the equation and Sony gives us a reason to start again from scratch on the Xbox. Ergo, PSN profile continuity was never going to be an issue - we were always going to be able to migrate our trophies from PS3 to PS4.

    The converse is also true - Gamerscore is a loyalty system for the 360 which was always going to transfer to the Xbone. MS was banking on it being of too high a value for Xbox users to consider a move to the PS4 and tried to shove draconian DRM measures down their throats without as much as a whimper or a gag. Bah bow! They fucked up royally and have lost the loyalty of their core customers, particularly in respect to used game sales and rentals. Those previous 360 brand evangelists are now the guys telling their mates to buy a PS4 instead.

    Disrespecting your most loyal customers is a massive fuck up - MS did it, Sony won't.

    Nailed it. I suspected this would be the case all along, I just wanted to see confirmation and I'm glad I did now.

    Fuck that indeed.

    I'm not reinvesting thousands of hours into playing PS3 games on my PS4. I'm playing PS4 games on my PS4.

    I'll keep playing my PS3(s) well into the future, but I'm not replaying nor repurchasing any game I've already completed just to re-earn those trophies.

    You at least have that option, but you also have the option to keep going with the same profile if you choose to do so. I'll take option B and stick with my existing profile.

    Removing my PS3 trophies from the PS4 would have meant ditching plans to buy the PS4 and going back to PC, or buying significantly less PS4 games.

    I can't believe people are still asking this question. This was answered back in February.

    He's implying that the guy is level 17 and only has 2,738 trophies.

    yeah I'm really against NOT having trophies carry to PS4 as Ive spent hours and hours working on my profile and dont want to start from 0 again. Also I'd like to see it as my progression over the years from 2008 to now and future.

    If you want a perfect platinum streak then you can just make a new profile but don't force it.

    It's like we can't have a single thread without people being fuckholes to each other.
