In an interview with Videogamer.com Gearbox Software president, Randy Pitchford, has revealed that Sony doesn’t force developers to use the newly implemented trophies.
Now I truly believe that Sony should change their stance on this one, we all know that Trophies are Sony’s answer to Achievements and one of the nice things about the achievements is that you always know that every game will give you something back.
In a similar manner the previous Xbox didn’t force all games to have Xbox Live support and in my opinion it most definitely held back the adoption of Live on that console, especially for the mass market.
I see no reason why Sony can’t dictate to all developers that every title must now include Trophy support. Especially the cross platform games that already have achievements built in.
