Trophies are much better. They're more in depth:

A platinum for collecting all other trophies
A level up system
Plus points as well

Earning a 'Gold' just sounds so much better than earning '30G'. This 30 is just added to a larger number. The trophies are nicely listed separately and generally just look cooler!

i agree with asher1985, but also it can be annoying thinking off the top of you head when trying to compare trophy levels, like for xbox its clear, just a points-difference between two people.

but i like the trophy system more, simply because the 'pinnng' noise is cooler than the xbox one lol

trophies because there are different categories of them while achievements are just points

Default the same

don't you think that they're exactly the same? just the same totally
platinum is replaced by the full game progress logo on your primary game screen, gold/silver as exactly the same 10G-20G-30G points help you to progress faster towards level ups in PSN.
Is there anyone here from game dev to confirm that for a cross-platform game achievements and trophies are developed just having exactly the same reasons behind?
and don't forget Steam and PC achievements/trophies.
moreover i think that when they all come to a cross platform trophy style like Steam-PSN and XBOX-PC now they won't have to rework a single thing, it is already in place.

I think both systems have merit but I prefer the trophy system.

The positives for trophys are:

Getting everything actually gives you something.
Leveling system

The negatives are:

Level cap
Weird requirements for having a plat (why the hell does RE4 have no plat).


Positives for achievement system:

No cap
Every game has achievements

Negatives:

Doesn't encourage you to actually finish any game

Played both systems but have to go with trophies because of the percentage meter to get to 100%. Achievements not so much since almost all games are 1000 points or higher.

I have to agree with everyone that trophies are better than achievements. You can see the number of golds and number of of silvers and platinums. You can tell just by looking t them that if they have like 2k bronze trophies and 5 gold that they rarely complete anything or just go for the ez trophies and move on. You can actually tell the type of player they are, especially trophy whores
