I think trophies are already built in for some games, just waiting for this to be released in the firmware.

If memory serves, GTA4 is one of them. I would also hazard a guess that GT5 will have some as well.

they are the same as the 360 version, you get awarded certain honours when you do something special, like pull offa huge stunt.

If I recall, for 360 owners these are acheivements, but for PS3 owners they are just in game things.

Apparently when you get them you put them in your 'Home' appartment in a special Trophy room, does this mean Home isn't too far away then??????

well, its still on a limited beta?

I have a feeling that Home may be a little ambitious for Sony in this regard.

if your talking about HOME, that has been seriously delayed. they are expanding the beta over the summer. then they are supposed to have a public beta near christmas. HOME wont be released for at least another year. if it ever will be released that isl.

you need to go into the stats, where it tells you how much you have done etc. I think that is where they are.

You also get similar in Devil May Cry 4 for certain acheivements, the same as you do in the 360 version.

I would assume that games on the PS3 & 360 that share acheivements like this could see an online recognition as soon as Sony releases the firmware that publishes trophies. It would be in the favour of the games companies to release updates for some games to boost the appeal somewhat.
