Fresh info has emerged that explains how trophies work on PS4 – you’ll still be bagging bronzes, silvers, golds and platinums as before, but this time there’s a twist. The PSN assigns a rarity value to each trophy, depending on how many other users out there in the world have also achieved it.
New PS4 trophy details: PlayStation pots are now classified by rarity
Presumably that means that if you buy a game at launch, all trophies will be super-rare initially, and will then spread out across the scarcity spectrum (TM) over time.
It also gives developers and publishers pretty useful feedback on the way you play your game – the feats you’re prepared to go to the ends of the world to complete, and the ones no-one bothers with. Big Brother is watching, and he’s counting those platinums.
This follows the absolutely crucial information that yes, PS4 trophies still ping, they just appear at the other side of the screen now. For a look at the first pots most of you will be bagging, check out Killzone Shadow Fall’s trophy list. There are 33 of them.
