His main reasoning being in the interest of "keeping it secure," as artificially increasing their ranks and Trophies "kills the whole system."

Surely, a simple method to prevent the homebrew gamer from bumping their trophy count is to implement anti-cheat protection, forcing PSP trophy hunters to remain logged in to PSN to unlock the goods.
Well, at least we've gone from firmly "not going to see Trophies" to it being "under discussion," and that's progress.
