PS3 Trophies

Microsoft revolutionised the scoreboard system via Achievements, for which it deserves full props. But y’know what? PS3 trophies are just so much cooler. Rather than a handful of disembodied points, the PlayStation 3 rewards you with a tangible prize that you can show off on your virtual mantelpiece – just like a real-life trophy. Plus, the addition of ‘tiered’ trophies (bronze, silver, etc) gives you something extra to aim for.

PlayStation’s advertising icon Kevin Butler put it best at E3 2010: "[Gaming] is staying up until 3AM to earn a trophy that isn't real… But it is."

By contrast, achievements are just meaningless numbers.

It's all about that G score buddy. Fuck your trophies.



Fairly certain this was written by someone that has either never used Xbox live or has only had a very short glance at it.

I have full access to the internet via my Xbox. Moreover, I actually watch my Foxtel via Xbox live. It works out cheaper in the long run. Music videos? Yeah, Xbox live has that and more. Very narrow view of things here.



Okay, this reason just sounds like trolling
