When Sony re-revealed PS Plus Extra and Premium earlier this week, we saw a lot of people asking whether the classic PS1, PS2, and PSP titles included with Premium would include Trophy support. The digital trinkets system has become an integral part of PlayStation gaming since it was introduced back in the PS3 era, and some would argue that without Trophies, playing games just isn’t the same.
Sony didn’t mention Trophies at all in its aforementioned re-reveal, which had us thinking that the classic games simply wouldn’t support them. But then just a few days later, Sony Bend confirmed via Twitter that the old games can be indeed retrofitted with Trophy support. Its very own Syphon Filter will even come with a Platinum Trophy when it launches on PS Plus Premium.
The response to this confirmation has been hugely positive, begging the question of why Sony didn’t just say that some games will have Trophies in the big info blowout. But we’re not here to discuss the Japanese giant’s marketing – we’re here to ask whether you care that much about having Trophies in classic PS1, PS2, and PSP games.
So, if these games didn’t have Trophy support, would you play them? How about not having a Platinum? Vote in our poll, and then explain yourself in the comments section below.
