PS3 Trophy Sync Issues to be Remedied with Faster PSN in 2010

500°
256w ago - Today Dutch site PS3Hype.nl (linked above) is reporting that those experiencing synchronization issues with PS3 Trophies can expect the dreaded 80022A07 error to be remedied in 2010 when Sony's PlayStation Network will become faster.

It is not yet known if this speed increase will only benefit Paid Subscribers, however, according to the Sony Rep they spoke with new servers will be added early next year.

To quote, roughly translated: "After a call to the help desk this morning I asked my question how I, 'Can not sync trophies (80022A07)' could solve problem I was told that with an overloaded server or a little too busy to do.

According to the PlayStation employee who helped me in the coming months December, January and February new servers will be added.

After some persistent questioning what advantages this has for the online gamer, she came to ask colleagues who concluded that the PlayStation Network as you know it now will be much faster.

Whether this has to do with the PSN Premium she could not tell me, in any case we expect an announcement shortly on the PlayStation Network being faster."
