Trophies are a feature of the PlayStation Network (PSN). They were introduced about a year after the PlayStation 3 had been launched; all following consoles by Sony, like the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Vita support Trophies. All new games must implement Trophies, but there are still some older games that do not, although it is possible to update games to support them.
There are four different trophy types.
- A trophy of the lowest difficulty. These trophies are easier to obtain.
- A trophy of medium difficulty. These trophies are a bit trickier to obtain.
- A trophy of high difficulty. These trophies might be too difficult to get for some gamers.
- A trophy only obtained by collecting all other trophies in a game. These trophies are only found in regular retail games. Trophies of Downloadable Content (DLC) do not have to be obtained to get a platinum trophy.

Gamers who want to collect all trophies are advised to remove their savegame data completely and then starting a brand new game with the trophy patch installed. Otherwise they will have trouble obtaining the trophies for collecting all secrets.
The trophy patch will render downloaded savegames from other users useless to prevent trophy cheating. To use a savegame by another user anyway, the gamer needs to remove the trophy patch by deleting the game, reinstall the game and remain offline while loading the savegame. Then saving the game again (to gain ownership) and reinstall the trophy patch. A trophy can not be gained or made easier this way.
