MGS 5: Ground Zeroes PS4 Platinum Trophy Omission ‘Due To Sony’ – Kojima
Hideo Kojima has commented on the lack of a Platinum Trophy in the PS4 and PS3 editions of MGS 5: Ground Zeroes on Twitter.
According to Kojima, the omission of a Platinum Trophy from the PS4 and PS3 editions of MGS 5: Ground Zeroes is due to Sony’s regulations.
“The reason GZ doesn’t have Platinum Trophy in PS4 is due to SONY’s regulation. They won’t allow us to have them for non-full price game,” said Kojima.
Klei, developers of Don’t Starve, has previously said that they weren’t able to add a Platinum to Don’t Starve on PS4 because of the amount of content in the game, not because of the game’s price.
It’s not clear, however, whether Sony has different rules for retail and digital only games. If Kojima is specifically referring to retail titles, then it may be the case that Sony has a different policy on Platinum Trophies.
