Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes won't have a platinum trophy. Hopefully that doesn't bother you lot that planned to infinitely replay the short, replayable game. Kojima explained on Twitter:

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.

Though I've long outgrown achievements and trophies, this did actually discourage me from buying Resident Evil 4 HD on the PS3, as I thinly rationalized the platinum as an excuse to replay a game I've played over and over already. It also bothered me a bit after sinking infinite hours in Lumines: Electronic Symphony and not getting my virtual gold (platinum) star for doing all the things.

But hey, Metal Gear Solid 4 didn't even have trophies for the longest time. It certainly didn't stop people from getting that Big Boss emblem. This doesn't affect your console choice, does it?

So how do the two platform-exclusive Ground Zeroes missions compare?

As you may have heard, both Sony (PS3, PS4) and Microsoft (Xbox 360, Xbox One) have their own piece of exclusive content for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. This isn't a pre-order bonus mind you -- it's built into every copy of the game. Naturally this can lead to a choice between the two, so let's take a look at what you're getting.more

Here's everything you can do in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

As you may have gleaned from my review, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is not for everyone. It only features one area, very little story, and it's only a glimpse of what's to come in Phantom Pain. But that doesn't mean it isn't a ton of fun to play, and there's plenty to do outside of the relatively short story mission.more

Killer Instinct's Season 2 is off to a great start

Although it had a few issues in terms of content, Killer Instinct on Xbox One was actually a good game at launch. Since then, I've taken a look at both Spinal and Fulgore, and found them to be a great addition to the alr...more

Confessional: I make up my own stories for games

So here is a dumb thing I do: I make up my own stories in games. No, I'm not just talking about RPGs like Fallout or Skyrim where the entire point is to go out and make your own mark on the world. I'm talking about just about...more
