Good idea for Sony to sell more PS3's!!!!

8 replies 15 views Edited Apr 21, 2007
Sony should start to include Home achievments in PS2 games!!! To get PS2 owners be like, well I could beat this on my old PS2 but the game has Home acheivments so may as well get a PS3. +  PS3 gamers would end up buying more PS2 games just for the acheivment stuff= MORE MONEY!!!
 
This is good idea dont you guys think.

There is no Archivements in Home, there are only Trophies. Also it will be really really hard to pull out this idea, specially because all the Trophies have to be implemented inside the game since the beggining, the only way I can think of is that they add a Trophie for every game you own, like it checks your PS2 Save Datas and use those 3D Icons they have and you can see the game you own on the PS2. Thats it.

Importing trophies (not achievements) to Home from Playstation 2 games is a great idea. That would definitely encourage PS2 owners to purchase a PS3. The process of getting, and making, PS2 trophies to the Playstation 3 may be tricky, but updates by developers are good ways to make trophies achievable.
Look at is, why wouldn't a developer want to make trophies? Those types of awards encourage and push gamers to gain more and more acknowledgement for what they have done. That includes buying the games to widen your arsenal of trophies

Meh idea. Too complecated and I doubt developers would care. Achievements don't = more money.

Well I meant for only new PS2 games, not old ones. PS3 gamers will pay if they get content. Like say NEW PS2 games comes with
Home furniture as rewards or other things , wouldnt you want them more then the normal version= more PS2 software sales.

Only Sony devloped PS2 games would be possible as other companies wouldnt care. I see God of War 2 as a possibilty, but a very (read very very) slim shot of it happening.

Im pretty sure Phil said trophies would only take like 15 minutes to make.

Thats still 15 mins of time that can be used to make other games. I'm 100% sure EA would not make trophys for past games. I mean EA forces its workers into heavy overtime, what makes you think there allow 15 mins making a trophy.

While EA doesn't represent the entire industry, if any company would make Trophys for PS2 games, it will be those produced by Sony itself as it would help make Home popular. I'm also willing to bet money on that.
