On the official PlayStation Blog Jeff Rubenstein has posted a video explaining what exactly the PS3 Trophies are. This has been a long rumoured feature that was said to duplicate  the XBOX360 achievements, but watch the video below to see for yourself.

What do you guys think? I’m a huge achievement fan on the 360, so the fact that the two systems are very similar is a good thing for me. I can also imagine that developers will have an easy time porting Trophies to Achievements and vice versa.

At launch only Super Stardust HD will support the new Trophy system, but it’s said that it would be an easy system to patch into existing games. Other games said to support Trophies are:

  • BUZZ! Quiz TV
  • LittleBigPlanet
  • MotorStorm Pacific Rift
  • NBA 09 – PS3
  • PAIN
  • PixelJunk Eden
  • Resistance 2
  • SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation
  • Warhawk

Looks like a good collection of titles, and I’m sure it will increase from there. It’s almost hard to believe that the PS3 is all growds’up now having both in-game XMB and Trophies! Do you think this will do anything to quell the shouts from the neysayers?
