Achievements/Trophies question

Post by dste » Sun Apr 15, 2018 8:29 pm

A quick question about 360/PS3 achievements/trophies.

Does anyone know if there were any games that didn't include them or was it straight off the bat with them being included?

Also, did games tend to have more and more of them as releases went on?

Just wondering is all.

Some early PS3 games had no trophies as I think they introduced them later in the system's life, I know Ninja Gaiden Black is one.

360 as far as I'm aware all had achievements except the Indie Games program but I believe you can't download those anymore.

the only weirdness at the start with achievements was that there was a loose rule that full retail games would have 1000G but Condemned only had 980G or something like that. But all games back then on the 360 had them.

Folklore on the PS3 definitely doesn’t have trophies. The people on Xboxachievements where going absolutely mental over Condemned only having 980 even writing to Sega claiming it was giving them bad stress not being able to get 1000.

According to Xboxachievements Hellboy only had 580 achievement points as the dlc had achievements that would make it 1000g and as the game never sold well the dlc was binned

The PS3 game on PS+ this month doesn't have trophies.

It's a bit of a nightmare to max out. You have to do two runs (one melee, one no melee) and the collectables are basically bits of metal. In the dark.

I'll not be maxing it out, I've yet to get all of the achievements on any game and most likely never will. Plus I've yet to go back to it after finishing the first chapter.
