The much anticipated release of the coolest firmware to date will be released on Wednesday July 2nd. To go along with the in-game XMB will also be PS3’s Trophy System. Here’s what we can expect and what game we can expect to see the Trophy system in use:
Super Stardust HD, a PLAYSTATION Network-exclusive released in June 2007, will be the first game to leverage Trophies and will offer a variety of trophies. Trophy support in Super Stardust HD will be available for first-time users who purchase the game soon after firmware v2.40 is released, while those who previously purchased and downloaded the title will be prompted to install a free patch.
PS3 users can expect to see additional games bringing Trophies support to their feature sets through 2008 and beyond, providing even greater opportunity to showcase their accomplishments and compete with friends. The following first-party games are also slated to offer Trophy support:
- BUZZ! Quiz TV
- MotorStorm Pacific Rift
- NBA 09 – PS3
- PixelJunk Eden
- Resistance 2
- SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation
To further emphasize the community aspects of this system software update, the amount of people you can add to your PSN friends list has been doubled, to 100.
I will be really impressed if Sony goes back to previous first-party games. Resistance would be a great reason to blow the dust off the cover and slide that bad boy in! Anyone interested in Pixel Junk Monsters Trophies?
