It may not be a sure fire confirmation for the little trinkets to make their way to your favorite handheld, but Shuhei Yoshida, Senior Vice President at Product Development at SCEA, had this beacon of hope when asked about Trophies on the PSP by PTOM recently:
“It’s under discussion, but there are some technical challenges.”
That’s a far cry from the statement Eric Lempel, the Director of Playstation Network Operations, put out at E3 this year when asked by Joystiq:
“You’re not going to see Trophies on the PSP.”
We assume the technical difficulties stem from what Mr. Lempel said as his reason why:
“If people can artificially inflate their rankings and amounts of Trophies it kills the whole [Trophy] system.”
How about forcing people to be logged onto the network when trying to accumulate trophies? I’m sure the powers that be can think of a way to allow the PSP crowd to get their fix!
