Press Release: SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Video delivery platform provider GridNetworks today announced support for GridCast TV on the Sony PlayStation 3.

Svensson: Trophy Support Planned for Future Capcom PS3 Titles

300w ago - Capcom's Christian Svensson has stated that PlayStatiopn 3 trophies are unlikely to be added to current games released due to the cost.

However, according to him Capcom is planning trophy support for future titles.

I will say that future titles are planning trophy support across the board on our US developed side and I believe the majority of our Japanese titles are also (I'm just hesitant to commit because I don't have a complete list in front of me).
