Wonder how Sony will respond to this in the future, as they are usually late with such improvements. I hope this update from Xbox will be good push for them to take trophies a bit more seriously and do some improvements/rewards etc

Oh god I hope not, since I don't view as a improvement. This is one of the times, where its good that PSN is such a mess, because Sony won't even have an idea on how to change the trophy system.

The only improvement I would like to see is perma bans for dirty filthy trophy cheats.

I couldn't see any type of rewards feature being implemented when cheating/hacking/modding is so rampant.

Sometimes I read the Flagged Game Disputes threads on PSNProfiles because I find it funny, how some people will go out of their way to claim they did nothing wrong, while having impossible timestamps for their trophies.

I personally would love having avatar or theme for every platinum you get. Also, solve trophy hacking and ability to get platinum for every game, increase level cap, I never plan to reach 99, but it should be nice to people who are already at 99.

I remember some games on 360 having stuff like that. Some achievements would give you avatars. I would also love some kind of rewards like that for trophies. Horizon did it, so it's not impossible.

Isn't the Platinum Trophy itself the "Badge" we need?

You should only get rewards maybe at a certain number of trophies or a level. Like lvl 50.
I think Bloodbourne also gave out a theme for getting a Platinum.

Yea it's seems to be only first party titles that do it. Horizon, The Last of Us, Bloodbourne and The Last Guardian give a theme for obtaining the platinum. Never did get my Last of Us reward and I got the plat on PS3 and PS4 FuckOff

I've no idea how it would work but I would like something like Ubisofts U Play (or Ubisoft Club as it's been renamed) section but for trophies. You could unlock outfits, weapons, art work or soundtracks and stuff for different games but you redeem them with a certain amount of trophies.

Oh and maybe some form of integrated customizeable trophy leaderboards too.

PlayStation Trophies [Mega Thread]

Aug 11, '17, 1:20pm

I have always thought Trophies and Achievements were just a potential tip of the iceberg. Playstation could have system based trophies, weekly based trophies, a mmo or ps home game that used trophy level as your level cap in the game. They had a reward beta system back on ps3 that i was in that i think they should bring back (similar to getting avatar or theme email for getting platinum). Any of these things are things that would convince the hardcore of the audience to play their ps4 or buy more games which is nothing but $ to Sony. Would love to see what Microsoft is thinking with the new stuff.

Though not very common, there are some legitimate examples for those cases, particularly when it comes to online games. If you happen to be in the same lobby as a hacked user, that hacked user in certain games could actually pop trophies for everyone else in the lobby and thus screwing everyone over.

I've heard that quite a few times but the only game I've heard that it has happened in is COD. I'm sure there are others too. It must suck.

Theres a million ways to spot a cheater tho so there is no excuse for Sony to not take action. When a player has Telltales Walking Dead Season 1 trophies completed and the timestamps show they were earned in 2008 you know there's something fishy afoot lol

I was more talking about people like this guy.

Grand Theft Auto IV:
It's a painful grind and the modder simply saved me time, he didn't help me to do something I didn't have the capacity to do myself, he just sped up the process, and GTA4's online is a complete mess. I don't believe it was much of a violation.
