Metal Gear Solid 4 Gets Trophy Support

32 posts in this topic

Metal Gear Solid 4 will get a Trophy patch, according to an interview with Hideo Kojima in this week's Famitsu. The magazine does not reveal a date for the patch, but MGS4 is scheduled to receive a budget release in in August, so the timing could coincide with that.

The interview also reveals that Konami will hold a Metal Gear Solid 25th Anniversary Event on August 30 at Tokyo Midtown (the office complex that houses Konami's main office). There will be some sort of announcement at the this event, Kojima reveals in the interview. This announcement is apparently related to the vision he's previously shared about a game that connects people. Peace Walker's "Transfarring" component served as a test for this vision.

Unlike today's other Famitsu reports, which came from our usual sources, we're not totally sure of the source for this particular report, but we should have confirmation later in the day.

Update: This report does appear to be true! The Trophy support will be included out the box with a 3,990 yen "PlayStation 3 The Best" budget version of MGS4 in August. Current MGS4 owners will be able to patch their copy of the game.

I really, really dislike this "achievements&trophies" trend infecting modern and proper gaming experiences. They should infect mobile and "casual" titles and die there, from my standpoint. One of the things I hate the most in Diablo 3 is all this "achievements" pop-ups hitting my face on the screen for every little **** I do....

They're adding a full install option to skip the chapter installs as well :D

Not confirmed for the patch, only for the new boxed release.

I feel the same way. It also seems like developers are getting lazy or tired with achievements when I see pop-up achievements just for passing a level/chapter.

Looks like it's confirmed. :)

Kojima Productions has confirmed that Metal Gear Solid 4's upcoming patch will include not just Trophy support but full install functionality as well.

Very nice - I was looking for another reason to play through this game. Went through it twice already, but I could definitely go for a third ;).

I actually found that I enjoyed my second playthrough more than the first. The long cutscenes weren't quite as annoying the second time around, because at least I could mentally prepare for them and tune out the unimportant parts (of which there are many).

Only 20 trophies, huh? Hopefully I should get at least one of those golds, anyway (the flashback one).

I remember reading that there should be 34 in total. The missing 14 might just be hidden trophies.

Probably, story-related ones.

Yep, downloaded and installed, along with all the game data (and it automatically deletes the MGO data as well). It tells you when you start up that pre-2.00 saves won't earn you trophies, and 2.00+ saves can't be used on pre-2.00 versions of the game (just in case anyone doesn't know yet).

And I just counted the trophies: 34 in total, 15 hidden.

It was a badge of shame for me that MGS 4 was one of the first games I bought when I got a PS3 and never got around to playing it. It now seems my shame has paid off with some more trophies for me :)

Good luck on the platinum, folks. Getting all of the iPod songs requires all 40 emblems, which requires at least 8 playthroughs, including the Big Boss emblem.

Konami should give a special prize to the first person to get the Platinum trophy to award their unbelievable dedication. :p

I love how they 'disguised' the difficulty of this by having it under the ipod songs trophy :laugh: Tricked a few people on patch launch to thinking the platinum was easy.
