    the trophy system

    Why doesn't sony copy what microsoft did and make the trophy system a number instead of a level? They could still have the bronze-platinum ranks but give them a value that add to a number instead of a level. Even most games that have a level system let you see how much XP you have and how much more you need to level up, but it seems Sony refuses to make an obvious decision. (I saw video of the PS4 UI and it looked like they were using their weird level system)

    I strongly disagree with you.

    The currect trophy system is good as it is. Its more original that way.

    ^ This is the answer you're looking for.

    And, I prefer the current system, rather than trying to change a bunch of stuff and screwing it up.

    Sony would be very smart to just avoid every method of everything Microsoft is doing right now. Keep it the way it is.


    And remember, if you get an XB1......... say hello to the NSA while they spy on you.
    Turn it off! Turn it off! Turn it off! Turn it off! TURN IT OFF!

    I really like the way this system works. I looked into XB's system and it's not any better.

    Yeah, XBLs achievement system sucks. You just get some arbitrary number that doesn't show anything about how good you are, just that you have a high number. With the trophy system, you can easily see how many "hard" achievements someone has, or if they just have a bunch of bronze's. Like, I know people who have a high gamerscore, but it's just because they use gamefly and get 40% on a game, return it, and repeat x1000. The trophy system makes it way easier to judge skill/completion rates, and it also makes it sort of a game, where you can level up, adding built in milestones instead of just constantly raising a seemingly arbitrary number.
    Hey. Hey. Look. Look at me. I'm playing video games.

    They could do something like our lottery machines here. It's fireworks sounds when you win a huge amount. Or maybe a little beat-up music of victory. But yeah, I like our current system, no need to change the basics of a working formula.

    If it isn't broke, why fix it? And if you prefer the XBL achievement , then go play your Xbox. Simple as that. What confuses me with the recent firmware update is why would they implement turning on/off the trophy notifications? Seriously?

    I wasn't aware that you could do that now. Why would anybody want that? Lol. That ping is the most awesome sound EVAR... Even if I don't always hear it.

    Thanks to Thunder for the platbar!!!
