On July 2, 2008 the PlayStation was updated to system software 2.40. And with it, along with a few handy features, came the addition of unlockable trophies for select PlayStation 3 titles. While trophies are indeed mandatory now, there was once a time when only a few games supported them.
Metal Gear Solid 4 released on the PlayStation 3 just 3 weeks before firmware 2.40 went live, and fans have begged for the title to receive a patch to enable trophies ever since. Konami made the point to state that they’re listening to the outcry from fans, but couldn’t yet give anything more solid than that. Then, the Greatest Hits version of MGS4 was repackaged recently, and on the case listed trophy support. Unfortunately, that was just a misprint.
Today we received a leaked Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots trophy list from an unnamed source who works closely with Konami, and confirmation that the long-awaited trophy patch is coming.
In total, Metal Gear Solid 4 will have 42 trophies including: 29 bronze, 8 silver, 4 gold and 1 platinum. Of those, 16 trophies are hidden (we have those descriptions as well, but are story related so heed our spoiler warning).
