    Nice!

    I hope they add Trophy Support for Uncharted. Drake needs some trophies.

    This is great news, though I don't agree with the site's bitching about no custom soundtrack. I've always been torn on CS since it became available. While I support the feature 100% on racing games (I have Black Lab running on my PSP while I play Wipeout), I feel that the availability of the feature on all games kills the efforts made by the music composers. I can't imagine playing Uncharted without the Firefly-like music in the background, or Silent Hill without the freeky music. I guess it's a nice option to have, but honestly, how many memorable gaming themes would we have missed out on if this feature had been around during Ocarina of Time and FF7?

    I don't use it on my 360, except for racing games, and I will probably never use it. So it's not soooo Bad as this site makes it seem.

    Oh, and about the "not pausing"..... don't care. I like watching movies, and pushing the PS button while the movie is still running underneath, I imagine feeling the same way about it with games, in that a Roleplaying game can still be conducting a fight (or in Final Fantasy's case, an hour-long summon) and I can check my email and stuff.

    If they do, you'll have to start from the beginning.

    Need some Burnout and FPS trophies (COD3, UT 3, Orange Box) if they add trophies for Nascar 09 I would be a must buy for me.

    She must have had a good aim.

    Hey, bonus for me then.

    Also of note, Dualshock 3 finally hits Europe this Friday apparently.

    Awesome, my only question is why no MGS4 I mean the game shipped so recently couldn't they convert the emblems and stuff to trophies? I really hope this becomes a required thing for all future games. Just watched the video about the update, cool thing about music.....only took them an extra 2 years to get it working.

    It would have been funny if guy in video said “The trophy system shows achievements you accomplished when playing games.”
