PS3 Trophy error pops up, Sony to hammer it down – eventually


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.
