Trophies are achievements gained from PlayStation 3 games. They link to players' PlayStation Network accounts. There are four types of trophies: bronze, silver, gold and platinum. Bronze trophies are usually awarded for small tasks, while silver and gold trophies are more important and difficult tasks. The platinum trophy is awarded to the player when he has obtained every trophy in the game (eventual DLC trophies are optional).
There are also hidden trophies which are revealed to the player when he or she obtained the trophy, and are mostly story-related. Trophies appeared in Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time. They also returned in Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One.
The Ratchet & Clank Collection features three trophy lists, one for each HD-remastered game (Ratchet & Clank, Going Commando and Up Your Arsenal), and three platinum trophies (one per game). The whole collection features over 100 trophies to obtain, and are mostly based on skill points.
Deadlocked will also appear as a separate buy on PlayStation Network and will have trophy support.
Tools of Destruction and Quest for BootyEdit
Trophies are not featured in every PlayStation 3 game. Trophies first appeared in 2008. Then, some games natively included trophies. Trophies became mandatory for every new PlayStation 3 game released after January 1, 2009. This doesn't apply to re-releases of games (like a GOTY Edition or a Platinum Range/Greatest Hits Edition), PlayStation Minis, and Neo-Geo Classics.
Insomniac Games stated they wouldn't do any "trophy patches" for any of their previous games before Resistance 2, as it demands to reopen dormant code, and some time to create, implement, and test the trophies to see if everything works. As Insomniac prefers to use this time for future titles, it's very unlikely that trophies will ever appear in Tools of Destruction and Quest for Booty.
