259w ago - An unexplained error related to PS3 Trophy synchronization is breaking a number of games on the console.
The error, which seems to have first struck after the release of firmware version 2.50, appears to occur when users change their PSN ID or password.
After doing so, their Trophy data becomes corrupt and running a select number of games brings up an error that notifies the user of a failure to sync Trophy data. In the worst of cases, the game forces the player to quit and "try again", only to repeat the same message.
Known affected titles include WipEout HD, Burnout Paradise, LittleBigPlanet and Pain.
The first complaints hit forums back in October and, having gone unfixed for so long, it has left many doubtful that a patch will come before the Christmas break, when those PS3s should be getting a considerable hammering.
A Sony community man posting under the alias 'MusterBuster' only just this week said: "A fix is on the way, but I don't have an ETA yet".
Firmware update 2.53, released earlier this month, didn't fix the problem.
CVG has contacted Sony for an official statement. Hopefully we'll have some good news for you before the day's out.
Otherwise, there is one suggested fix that has worked for some titles. Bit of a pain...
266w ago - Community Team Leader Elixor of the official PlayStation European boards has announced the following today:
The topic of this discussion is to make a classification Community trophies. As yet there is no automatic system I propose that we simply do this manually in our own way.
2. How does it work?
Each time you win a trophy we will update your score so you can climb up the ranking, the more you have more trophies you will be at the top of the ranking. More important are your trophies and more they are worth many points.
The battle will be very hard for the top places, courage!
3. How to participate?
It's easy, simply add to your list of friend online ID Trophees_01 and wait for our response added. Once you enter added in the list.
If the account is full Trophees_01 simply add Trophees_02, then Trophees_03 and so on.
4. How to update my score?
Again it is simple, once you are entered in the ranking you want to update your points whenever possible, even when you win a trophy.
So to update your score you can simply post a reply in this discussion by stating:
The account on which you are registered, for example Trophees_01,...
267w 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.
To quote Sven: There are a few titles released by our US group that we'd like to go back and have trophy support added to, but the bids to do so were cost prohibitive (they'd never make it through a green light process if those costs stand). We've not entirely given up yet though, so you may still see something further down the line.
Because there's some uncertainty, I don't want to say whether you will or won't on what's on that list.
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).
