Why do a game (like miles morales) have a trophy list ps4 and another with the same trophies on ps5

24 posts in this topic

Like the title says, is kinda stupid IMO

why not both be on the same trophy list like some vita games share trophies with his ps4 counterpart

Looks like a good way to farm plats but i just don't like it

I agree, it just feels unnecessary to have another list for most games, like why couldn't they just be combined? They're literally the same game but with slight enhancements.

Even some games that were on PS3 had the same list as PS4 when that version came came out, games like Terraria and Badlands.

I was expecting most next gen games to have combined lists with their last gen counterparts, but no.

A friend of mine reported that with Fortnite all the trophies you earned on the PS4 version all auto pop on the PS5 version. WHY NOT JUST COMBINE THE LIST??

 

Free double plat for anyone who did it once I guess.

i mean, this is how it was when the 4 launched too, and tons of games got seperate lists for both on the same launch, give it time, theyll figure out how to toss the stacks out

Oh god. I was so angry (and still am) at the fact that I bought the witcher 3 complete edition (or whatever it's called) just because it was cheaper at the time than buying the three dlc's separate so I could go back and complete the dlcs just to find out that the witcher 3 has 3 separate trophy lists with all the same freaking trophies!! Now I'm blocked out of buying the dlcs for the base game so I can no longer go and 100% that game and now I have 2 versions of it that I can't do anything with cause I'm sure as hell not starting that whole game up again. It's ridiculous. Why? Ps vita shares trophies.

I think it was rather the opposite. When the PS4 launched several games inlcuding some from ps2 generation have a combined trophy list of ps4/ps3/vita but the amount dropped over the years. Later on more and more games have ps4 and Vita seperated. And eventually the regional stacks came wide spread too...

 

@ topic

the devs want seperated trophy lists :D  maybe expecting more sales. I'm in for seperated trophy lists.

yeah, only serious problems are allowed to be discussed in this trophy hunting forum, like sex trafficking, beheadings, child soldiers, etc. Nothing else matters so doesn’t deserve to be talked about ever

 

Nice going dodging that whole covid bullet.

You can buy them on a different account.

It’s because they changed the trophy icons so having a shared list with PS4 wouldn’t work because of the icon size difference. 😂

Actually, I don’t think you will ever see any shared lists. As it stands, PS5 trophies cannot be viewed on a PS3, PS4 or Vita. Total trophy counts are correct, but PS5 lists can’t be seen on those systems.

 

I assume this means Sony has implemented a new server that only the PS5 connects to for trophy data. Where would the shared list go? PS4 would need to be able to access that server, but that’s not the same one as the PS5. If it’s the PS5 server, the trophies wouldn’t sync from the PS4?

 

Accordingly, I don’t think a shared list is even possible from a technical perspective.

They've done it to sell more games. Trophy hunters will love the autopoping trophies. Just makes the whole system even more worthless.

given a lot of these have free upgrades they're not doing a good job.

Activate that account as primary for your console. Any other account will be able to play the content bought in that account. You can have up to 16 accounts activated simultaneously. Same thing as buying in a store of different region.

Never bought from the store in a different region 🤷 I guess I could go and do that.. had no idea.

It's worth doing for different region stacks and especially sales. My main acc is eu and my second NA and i get the american store cards for a cheaper price compared to EU.

It was the same thing when Ps4 came out. 

I could swear i remember battlefield 4 sharing the trophy list between ps4 and 3. doesn't seem to be the case though.

Games like BF4, AC4: Black flag and COD Ghosts for example had two list between ps4 and 3 and they were identical
