    Possible Increase/Drop in Online Trophies for PS4 Games?

    Seeing as Sony is pushing being more social with people and are intending to improve upon their already great network service, naturally I would expect there to be a greater amount of online trophies in games which have online segments. However, considering that for most games you'd have to pay to even use the online portion of games (via PS+) would there be a decrease/increase in them?

    What are your thoughts?

    I would personally like to see the death of online trophies. It would eliminate unplattable games and I think it might actually challenge developers to include a multiplayer mode worth actually playing. This way if (insert game here)'s multiplayer is good and enjoyable, people will keep playing it.

    I'm not a fan of multiplayer myself but I do still play online and one of the things I hate most about multiplayer these days is that it mostly feels tacked on or copied and pasted and seasoned with a dash of trophies so at least perfectionists and trophy hunters will give it a go. I really don't mind online trophies, I mind that they are required a majority of the time.

    But it seems that everyone (read: technology companies) wants to be more integrated with us and everyone around us so I think there'll be more online and team oriented trophies and not less.

    I can see more online trophies coming soon and even trophies based around the share button. Trophies like watching a friend beat a boss before you beat him and things like that.

    I wish they just added them as dlc trophies though.

    I really hope they decrease the amount of online trophies. Don't get me wrong, I love playing online but some online trophies are a real pain to get especially if you don't enjoy the mp in that game. It also sucks if servers are closed and you can no longer go online with some games or if the online is available but just laggy/glitchy. It would be nice as stupot was saying if they would offer multiplayer as an optional dlc that you could purchase so that way the online trophies wouldn't be required to get a platinum. I don't see why they don't do that since a lot of developers are doing online passes nowadays.

    As much as I hate online trophies, I can assure you that online trophies will increase when PS4 and Xbone come out. The future we are heading into is to be connected universally, so you can bet your ass game developers will create games catering to online play. Ex: Elders Scroll Online, The Division, The Crew.

    I just hate when de online trophies are real long grinds like Tomb Raider, get to max level cap 3 times? No thanks. Naughty Dog has a least de right idea. Win one round of each type of multiplayer on Uncharted and The Last of Us was a little bit of a grind but it was doable. I just can`t see myself playing a game online for months on end. Even against friends. Once I get my trophies, I move on to de next game.

    I think there will be an increase of online trophies, and there might be a possibility where they will become optional for the . That would be pretty interesting if Sony and game developers can pull that off.

    I like the idea for having them seperate in a way. Either by DLC or a different trophy list entirely. I like online trophies just because it's awesome when you do finally get them, but I understand others feelings on the long MP grinds or nearly unattainable skill-based ones.

    I see this whole online connectivity growing and that means more online focused trophies IMO.

    With the new focus on increased connectivity they will most likely increase, Online Passes didn't stop online trophies,, so I doubt the compulsory use of PS+ for online play will.

    I like online trophies and I definitely support them. Trophies are not popular enough to ever dictate how the mp plays or how good it is, but it will influence some people to actually play it. It's more than likely if they drop them 80% of the people on this site won't even play mp once. It is a part of the game devs worked hard on, if it's good or crap. Why shouldn't they include it? So you can get an easier plat and move on from the game, which you bought or rented? Online trophies should stay, simply because you don't have to stay and play the game.

    Thanks to Bladia for the amazing Sig and Avy.

    In my ideal world we have two trophy lists per game, the singleplayer trophies take you up to the platinum, and the multiplayer trophies take you up to the 100% on said game

    However, this is never gonna happen, the current system works to force you into playing multiplayer that you normally wouldn't touch, with the hope that somebody out there might actually enjoy their probably shit online portion and continue playing it

    I see things staying the same, you have one side screaming to rid online trophies but there's also a side that wants online trophies
    we learned with ps3 that even the games that originally had only SP is getting the MP treatment ie. tomb raider, god of war

    So with more games and possibly new ips coming in we can expect to see more MP
    and developers giving there dlc worth by adding online trophies
    i don't think developers care about your trophy list more than your money
    Its a business after all

    There would be no point in having them, if you can achieve the platinum without doing them . Online trophies are here to stay, sadly, they are also likely to increase in number .

    I'am more of a co-op player than a straight up mp gamer, it might not be to bad though if you can get a friend to control your game and earn the online trophies

    I don't mind online trophies either, but the major problem is that the online server is not always available and games become unable to platinum.
