$15 is too much, IMO. Was hoping for a $10 price tag (before the PS+ discount). Guess I'll be waiting.

Buying a game just for trophies is kinda of sad. PJM is a great game made better now that it's on Vita. Trophies aren't that big a deal.


But I have purchased this game twice already. Is it too much to as that they put some effort into the "Ultimate" edition, trophy-wise?

I understand where your coming from I just don't think trophies should be a deciding factor in whether to buy a great game or not.

Trophies are the absolute last thing I factor in when looking to buy a game. 99.9% (accurate number) of the time, I go in completely blind as to the trophy numbers and goals for a game.

 

I'll be buying PJM: Ultimate HD tomorrow/today, and will play it as soon as my Vita returns from servicing. It's just that, as I said before, I've bought this game twice now. I've done just about everything possible in the PSP version, and seeing as how Ultimate is just a more shiny version of Deluxe, I was hoping for something more, something unique.

Since I'm the only other one talking about the trophies, it's exactly how you said [stuff I've colored yellow and red] except for: I also bought the UMD version of PJMD, so I bought it 3 times.

 

This is the ONE game I've complained about trophies per se. I use trophies to get the most of games on the PS3, and PS Vita sometimes. Story-wize you can be "finished" with a game, but not done with it, and the trophies actually tied to that stuff will aide you in completing the game full.

 

I've seen some really dumb trophy lists here and there for PS Vita games. [I don't have a list of them, in case anyone asks.] Rainbow everything PJM on Hard Mode, now THAT'S a Gold or Platinum trophy. Robot tongue

Ha I too bought the UMD version, but for my brother, so technicaly I've bought it three times Smiley Happy

 

Anyways, I've looked at the trophies for PS3 and Vita side-by-side, and there are actually 3 trophies in the PS3 version that are silver, yet their identical Vita counterparts are bronze -_-

 

Edit: And one gold trophy that is a bronze! I'm now hoping this list is just wrong.

Everything I've read has indicated the game is the same as the PSP version. I'm not sure why you were expecting otherwise.

 

And from the IGN review: "Perhaps a new Trophy list (comprised of a bunch of Bronzes)"
