During the last week or two, an growing quantity of PlayStation Retailer customers have begun voicing their considerations about an inflow of cheap shovelware with easy trophies usually gracing the brand new releases part. Nearly all of those video games have the identical premise: press X to unlock trophies and acquire a Platinum inside minutes. From The Leaping Brownie to The Leaping Fries – we’ve seen all of it. Now, it seems to be like Sony has taken observe of the hue and cry and though the video games are nonetheless listed on the market, the corporate has discovered a little bit of a workaround.
Shovelware and simple trophies are right here to remain
As famous by NeoGAF customers (through Exputer), Sony appears to have up to date how the PS Retailer types new video games by guaranteeing that the related part highlights correct video games versus “leaping video games,” as they’re rightfully referred to as. The shovelware nonetheless exists however it’s been buried a little bit bit additional down, so if you do open the PS Retailer app or the console storefront, you’re not slapped within the face with the simple trophy video games when looking new releases. The PS Retailer has now reverted again to “best-selling” video games because the default sorting.
How come Sony permits leaping video games on the PS Retailer, you ask? My wild guess is that there’s ample demand for them. One look on websites like PSNProfiles signifies that even throughout the trophy searching group, there are of us who’re merely trying to inflate their trophy rely versus taking up the problem of unlocking tough Platinums. So long as demand for these video games exists, so will the video games themselves.
In different information, Saints Row reboot’s trophy list is out and it’s a fairly time-consuming one, and Sega insists that Sonic Frontiers won’t be delayed regardless of followers expressing considerations concerning the state of the sport.
