hmmm, you're not one of those 'glitchers' claiming false fame are you???  ;D

lol.  Yep, you caught me.  I glitched my way to an astounding Level 2 (whatever that means).   ;)



I wonder if it'd help to log out of your PSN account online and then back in?

I tried this a few hours ago during my lunch break.  I updated my PS3's clock via Internet (again).  Signed into my PSN account.  Checked my trophy list was correct under GAMES on the XMB.  'Synced' my trophy list (by clicking on my PSN Tag and again from the GAME tab).

I can even compare my trophies with others on my friendlist using my PS3 and they do show up.

However, none of the above helped anything.  My online profile still looks like this ...

Yeah, I glitched my way to a Gamescore of 40 on XBL!  I went from 15 to 40 just by completing the first level in Doom!  I didn't get squat for completing the entire first episode!

I could probably explain your level 2 to you, if you could get your games to show up under your trophies  ;)

It's basically a measure of awesomeness. Trophies are the awards you get for being a particular awesomed

Well I discovered the problem.  There are apparently A LOT of trophy-enabled games that have virtually been removed from PSN's trophy database.  You can still earn the trophies and view them on your own console, but playstation.com has no record of them.

I first stumbled upon this when I compared my Heavy Rain trophies against Maib's (since he's played it).  I can see his trophies on my console, but if you view Maib's PSN profile, Heavy Rain is nowhere to be seen.

Sony really f***ed this up for everyone.   :'(

The invisible trophy issue may be restricted to the US playstation.com site.  Some are reporting that the UK (and other) sites are either not affected, or are experiencing different issues.

List of known games that no longer appear on PSN's trophy list
Aliens vs. Predator
God of War Collection:  God of War 1
God of War Collection:  God of War 2
Heavy Rain
Prototype
Ski-Doo Snowmobile Challenge
Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope International

... and growing

Power wise the PS3 is superior to the 360, games like Uncharted 2, Killzone 2, Heavy Rain would struggle to run on the 360 if it all, along with blu-ray, thats pretty much the only thing going for it and it's taken ages for developers to get to grips with the consoles power, not a fan of PSN and all this stuff going on certainly doesn't help, Live has PSN beat hands down. 

One thing i've found with PSN and i'm not sure if this affects anyone else, are download speeds, it took 4/5 hours to download the Heavy Rain demo on Saturday, a demo that weighed in at around 1.7GB, yet a similar sized download on the 360 only took around 30 minutes, either every man and his dog were downloading the thing at the same time or my PS3 is a bit goosed  ;D

From a technical perspective, this is certainly true.  Unfortunately, Sony didn't make their 'power' very easy for developers to utilize.  When Sony initially gave developers their development kits, it was a bit like giving a Harmony remote to your grandmother and telling her to program it.   :D

The Atari Jaguar and Panasonic 3DO were also "superior" to rival consoles at the time, but poor development support (among other things) buried them.

The early (and well-played) advantage Microsoft took at launch was improving development tools for 3rd-party developers, which is greatly why Microsoft receives so much support from them now.



games like Uncharted 2, Killzone 2, Heavy Rain would struggle to run on the 360 if it all

I agree with Uncharted 2.  Killzone 2 did not leave me with a very positive impression.  And Heavy Rain's graphics were far worse than I anticipated.  After all of the time they took to release it, I really expected Heavy Rain to at least match the graphics of the first Uncharted.   :(



One thing i've found with PSN and i'm not sure if this affects anyone else, are download speeds, it took 4/5 hours to download the Heavy Rain demo on Saturday, a demo that weighed in at around 1.7GB, yet a similar sized download on the 360 only took around 30 minutes, either every man and his dog were downloading the thing at the same time or my PS3 is a bit goosed  ;D

The PSN "network / server / whateveryouwannacallit" is definitely strained.  There are a lot of online-integration that feels so primitive on PSN compared to Xbox Live.  24-hour profile update delays are another sign of poor infastructure.  And the whole 8001050F fiasco that happened last weekend gives many the unsettling impression of how disconnected the PS3 is from it's own PSN service.  While the Xbox 360 seems to integrate like liquid with the Xbox Live service.

It would be great if Sony's hardware team and Microsoft's software/network team collaborated to make a console better than either could make on their own.  Sadly, that will probably never happen.

Good stuff Neato, i was amazed at how long the download took, it's the first demo i've downloaded on PSN so I had nothing to compare it to, luckily there aren't many other PS3 exclusives that i'm intending on trying so I don't think i'll bother getting any demos in the future.  Any multi-platform releases will be played, as always, on the 360.

Xbox 360 is way better than PS3 because I am a fanboy well girl so I know I am right
Can't wait for Shenmue 3



I hate jokes that rely on visual imagery.

I've had it right up to here with them.
