PS1, 2 and Trophies

8 replies 199 views Edited Oct 29, 2012

I've been thinking about this lately because I recently whipped out my old spyro games to play with my little brother. I thout how fun would it be to have trophies for older games. I googled this to see if there was a topic on this already and it was in the archives so I decided to bring it up again. Sorry if I missed a current topic about this.

Anyway, I think the companies that currently own the classic games should be given the option to take the time to make trophies for their old games. I know sales would deffenetly improve if they decide to do this.

 

I know Sony wont see my post, but I'm posting it for more as a discussion. What do you guys think?

 You want trophies for games that are 10-15 years old? It's a waste of time, and some companies would rather make something new than make patches for ps1 games so that they'll have trophies. And i doubt that the sales will improve drastically if they were to include trophies.  There are some PS3 games(earlier ones before the trophies were put in effect) that haven't gotten patches, as companies see it as a waste of time or something that they are not interested in. MGS4 did get trophies after a long plea from the fans. Having trophies doesn't make a terrible game, become an amazing game.

While it may be a "waste of time" for the companies, I would thoroughly enjoy this. nothing would make me happier then getting a platnium on Final Fantasy 8, Spyro, Crash, or even the old Gran Turismos. I would buy the hell out of PS1/PS2 titles just to get those trophies. I hope it's something they're looking at for the future.

My Playstation Collection consists of:
152 PS3 games - 564 PS2 games - 72 PS1 games - 202 PSP games - 11 PS Vita games

Over 1,100 games total :smileyhappy:

It's not as easy as the newer games where they can just patch the game with trophy support. They will have to rerelease the game, that includes all the legal mess. Plus they will probably have to sell it for super cheap if they want people to buy them, not a lot of companies will be interested.

This si where I wish SONY would include the community. You know we have to have some smart SONY tech fans that could rewrite the code and allow SONy to save money on projects like this. I feel like it'd be a win-win for everyone.

only in a perfect world my friend (no way a company would let some random people handle their codes)

Well, I'm not going to rebuy these PS1/PS2 games just for the trophies. 

 

My reason is simple. I don't have so much money in my bank account as I (might) need other PS1/PS2 games that I haven't played before like SOCOM (1, 2, 3); Tales of Destiny (1 & 2), etc.

Uh-huh. That would be me in that category.

I'd buy those rare games for $10 each (downloadable) from PSN.
