Metal Gear Solid 4 to be patched with trophy support

[ Edited ]

The Trophy support will be included out the box with "PlayStation 3 The Best" budget version of MGS4 in August. Current MGS4 owners will be able to patch their copy of the game.

The MSG4 online multiplayer was shut down earlier this year, with a release of the game with trophys it will be pretty silly without it. If they not remove that option from the game completly, new buyers will feel they are not getting the full game experiemce. So lets hope there also will be a reopning of a improved online multiplayer to.

 

the shut down....

So they were saving the trophy patch for when the game is re-released in it's Bargain Bin form... haha.

 

EDIT: Or maybe the new Ps3 The Best version simply counts as a new release and therefore has to have trophies on it...

No doubt SNS will platinum it on the day that the patch is released.

I was going to replay MGS4 after I finished the HD collection so the trophies don't really have a big impact on me. I just see this as a sad reminder that MGO was shut down last month, and I imagine that the new patch will remove that option from the main game menu since its no longer used. :(

Haha! :p

 

Well I guess this news will please everyone who have been begging and waiting for a trophy patch for MGS4 and it's finally happening. (If it's happening.)

 

And they can't get rid of the MGO option! Then my casing for it will be lying to me! =(

I'm so pleased to hear about trophies FINALLY coming to this great game. I've been holding out on playing through again for 4 years now for this very reason, lol!

 

It is a shame that MGO was shut down but the incredibly complex entry procedure would look pretty embarrassing today. I suspect that the new edition will show no sign of MGO and it would make sense that the patch removes it from the original game's menu too.

 

I can't wait to see the trophy list, just hope they're not as tough as the original in game emblems!

I hope this patch also make it possible to install all the chapters at once.

 

Now, if only SEGA could release a trophy patch for Valkyria Chronicles too :smileytongue:

I wish I could down-vote the people who have not played MGS4 because it hasn't got trophies.
That's like me not wanting to buy a magazine because it didn't come with a poster this week, or not wanting to finish a book because there is nobody to clap and say well done. XD

Its definitly happening, the official Facebook MGS page posted saying this:

 

"The long-awaited Trophy patch to METAL GEAR SOLID 4 is in development! This will coincide with a new budget-priced version of the game with Trophy support. We will continue to update this page as details become available, coming soon"

 

Bit too late imo, cba playing through it for like the 10th time just to get trophies.

Oh indeed... one of my biggest facepalms of late was reading ps3trophies.org, and somebody was angry and decided to boycot the Ratchet HD Collection because all the skill points involved made the Platinums too hard.... seriously?

 

Trophies do add a bit of incentive and replay for me, but I'd never not play a game because I couldn't plat it... If that was the case I wouldn't buy any games with multiplayer, including the Assassins Creed spin-offs... I love the AC games, but I don't do online multiplayer... I can still sleep fine at night only having 50% trophy completion in those games... and the likes of Red Dead Redemption...

 

On topic... I've been meaning to replay this game... I have to admit I only played it the once.. but I replayed MGS in anticipation of the HD Collection last year... held off on the HD when I knew I was getting a Vita, and are now loving MGS3 again... so trophies included could add to the incentive for me..

I didn't say that I had never played it because it had no trophies; I played, completed and proclaimed it to be the greatest game I had ever owned. Before I replayed it, there were rumours of trophies being added so I held off for them. It just turned out that between hopeful waiting and playing many other games, that ended up being quite a long time, lol.

 

Also trophies aren't just as simple as a "well done" pat on the back. They add more challenges to the game, making you try to achieve things you may not ordinarily do and therefore adding more value to the game imo

I don't think he was talking about you specifically.
