Eidos has confirmed that a Trophy patch is in the works for the PS3 version of Tomb Raider: Underworld.
Community manager Keir Edmonds dropped the news on the Tomb Raider forums.
“Lots of people have been asking about trophy support for the PS3,” he said.
“The guys at Crystal have been looking into this for a long time because they really wanted to include it. The good news is that I can confirm that a patch for the PS3 version of Tomb Raider: Underworld is being worked on that will enable Trophy Support.
“I don’t have an exact date for you yet.”

According to a CVG report, PS3 Trophies’ ability to, er, do nothing in particular has run into a potentially shelf-smashing error. Apparently, after PSN users alter their PSN ID or password, Trophy data can become “corrupt.”
Should that happen, certain games will then notify players that Trophy data has failed to sync – sometimes leading to a series of looping “quit and try again” messages.
Titles like Burnout Paradise, LittleBigPlanet, Pain, and WipEout HD have fallen victim to the Trophy-gobbling glitch since October, but the recently released 2.53 firmware update failed to sweep the bug under the rug.
Fortunately, Sony community guy “MusterBuster” claimed that, “A fix is on the way, but I don’t have an ETA yet”.
If your e-life absolutely depends on a healthy, bustling Trophy case, click through the link for a “quick” fix. (Hint: it’s not quick.)
Otherwise, just remember that waiting builds character or whatever. So don’t worry; Sony’s got your back.

Bethesda’s seemingly released the long awaited Trophy and bug patch for the PS3 version of Fallout 3.
Nothing concrete has been forthcoming from the publisher, but all those internet reports can’t be wrong, can they?
Still in doubt? Turn on your PS3, put the game disk in, and find out for yourself.

A UK development source has confirmed to VG247 this morning that all PS3 titles entering submission after January 1, 2009 must have Trophies implemented, and that it’s actually not allowed to retroactively add Trophies to existing games.
Videogamer.com reported yesterday that all PS3 games need to have Trophies from January. It’s true, we were told this morning, and the new rule only applies to new products.
“It just means that new titles entering the submission process post that date have to have them,” said our source.
“It’s entirely up to developers and publishers if older titles are to get Trophies as they are now via patches.
“Also, as far as I am aware, any games that do patch in Trophies have to be started from scratch. We can’t check a save game for stats and unlock Trophies accordingly.”
We’re not 100 percent sure on why it’s not specifically allowed to check game saves, but we suspect it’s to stop people cheating by using friends’ save files. So that’s why you don’t get retroactive Trophies for things like Burnout and GTA. Glad we got that cleared up.

After a source close to Videogamer informed the site that Trophies will be mandatory in all PS3 games once January rolls around, the staff had a quick chat with a spokesperson from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, who confirmed the rumor in as few words as humanly possible.
“Yes, from Jan 09 all games must have Trophies,” the spokesperson said.
Shiny bits of virtual plastic for all your hard work. Money and piles of women can’t be far off.

Bethesda’s Peter Hines has confirmed that Trophies are on the way for Fallout 3.
“It’s going to happen, just not sure when. We’ll let folks know when we have something more definitive,” said the comms boss in a live interview with Eurogamer readers.
He’s still answering questions, so go and hassle him.

PS3F reports that the Trophy patch for the PS3 version of GTA IV has now gone live, so if you fancy trawling through Nico’s adventures another time just to get some bits of virtual iron, you’re in luck.
Because the game’s awards aren’t retroactive. Tough luck, sucker.

According to this month’s US Official PlayStation magazine SCEA is looking into some kind of Trophy reward system.
“We’ve heard that SCEA is mulling over some sort of Trophy reward system,” says the piece.
“We doubt it’ll be cash (or the equivalent), but we suspect it might be exclusive access to early betas and the like.”
This is going firmly into the rumour pile for now.

Speaking to PSU, Bethesda’s Peter Hine has confirmed that the PS3 version of Fallout 3 won’t have Trophies at launch. Dang.
“Not at launch,” he said. “It remains to be seen what we do down the road. It wasn’t something we were able to incorporate into the game for launch.”
Game’s out for 360, PC and PS3 in October.
