Just giving all our loyal readers a heads up, that the “leaked” pictures of Trophies, and PSN Gamercard, are indeed REAL. I cannot divulge how I know this. But I am willing to put myself out there, and personally state for the record that these are in fact the real deal. Normally we call things rumors here @ PlayStationLifeStyle. Right now I am calling this FACT.
There you have it guys… Its our first glimpse of trophies on the PSN. This is a very exciting time to be a PS3 owner.

This is (obviously) a mock up, based on what information we have just now. What we do know is that there are three tabs to this 'Gamercard', and this is the first - your profile. This will show your PSN ID, the current game you're playing and how well you're doing at that particular game in terms of trophies and your 'level'.
Tapping R1 will show you the second tab, which at the moment shows trophy totals in some kind of tiered system. This was originally thought to be just for each game, but we here at TSA think this is a universal system, with the tab showing a trophy total for all games.
If Sony expand on this, and (for example) default 'Platinum' level players to 'hard mode' on new games this could work really well, although we're sure in time that everyone will manage to attain Platinum given enough easy games, something that has plagued the Xbox 360 with people actually buying and renting the least difficult games to up their 'Gamerscore'.
The last tab will apparently be some kind of 'Compare' page, which will allow you to (obviously) compare your trophies with other players and your friends, something that's already on the Xbox 360 but is slightly clunky to navigate. We'll see soon enough.
