Sony Reveals Enhanced Online Trophy Viewing

Due to popular demand, Sony will be adding better trophy viewing support online. There’s some pretty cool stuff there. Also, it’s about time we get an updated version of the portable ID over here in the states (I still think it’d be nice if we could pick from different resolutions). Sounds like they got quite a few things going on there. Here are the details from the Official PlayStation Blog:

  • View detailed info on your trophies on PlayStation.com
  • Compare your trophies with multiple friends and other PSN ID’s
  • Compare details on trophies within each game
  • Track your progress to the next level against friends
  • See what trophies you have and what you still need to unlock for each game
  • Use the sorting features to plan your game domination

Keep in mind, they did say available later this week, but no exact date was specified. Will probably go into effect Friday, though.

Profile Support is IN LittleBigPlanet

So the other day I got a beta invite for LittleBigPlanet, a mere five days before the beta is due to end. Ah well, I shouldn’t complain. I’m getting something for nothing, right? You can read about the beta from a ton of other sources, so I won’t go into that here.

But here’s the kicker.

When you’re in a game and add another player, you can choose if you want that player to be a guest of your main profile, or if you want that player to be tied to a different profile! Yay and hurrah! So two years after the release of the PS3, I finally had a reason to add a friend to my list of PS3 users. Sure enough, when he entered the game, he could choose his own profile. So next time he plays, he can again choose that profile, and get the character he made along with the costumes and everything he unlocked. What a lovely concept! It’s something that the 360 has been doing for three years now, and it’s finally on the PS3.

So, Sony, what other games are going to support this feature?
