Blast Factor – Now With Trophies!

Andy O'Neil's Avatar + Posted by Andy O'Neil on Dec 03, 2008 // President, Bluepoint Games

Hey All! We’ve had a lot of email over the last few months asking about Trophies for Blast Factor, so I’m very pleased to announce that a new updated version of Blast Factor with that sweet Trophy goodness will be winging its way to your PS3 this Thursday! We’ve had a lot of fun putting the Trophy challenges together, and we reckon that we’ve got a good selection for Blast Factor fans of all abilities. Watch out though, there are a couple that are going to be a challenge to even the most hardcore of Blast Factor players!

Blast Factor

We’ve added 25 Trophies in total across the original game and the 2 expansion packs, with around 15 Trophies in Blast Factor: Basic Research and its 90+ levels, and 10 Trophies split between the Multiplayer expansion and Advanced Research with its addition of 80+ levels and Hybrid mode. We’ve also added rumble support for the DualShock 3 Controller for that extra tactile goodness. All existing versions of Blast Factor will get automatically patched when you start the game, so you won’t even need to download the new version from the store.

Blast Factor Blast Factor

And yes, this update is FREE! So if you own Blast Factor, and any of its expansions, all you need to do is fire it up! If you don’t have the game yet, you can get the base game for $9.99, or for $12.99 you can get a bundle including both add-ons!

We’re real pleased with this update. Hope y’all enjoy it!

i wish more developers would go back to patching their old games.

I can’t believe Insomniac refuses to put trophy support for Ratchet and Resistance…when they already have the Skill Points laid out for them.

That’s awesome! I know I played that game a lot when it first came out, now I’ll have something to show for it and an excuse to go back and re-play it! :D Great to hear about rumble support as well. What a nice surprise-filled day today has been!

Any idea where I can order some PSN cards? I’ve had my PS3 for over a year now and I have never been able to register any credit card via de PSN management options. I’ve tried 3 different credit cards, and I always get the same message of “credit card information is invalid”.

Yet Infinity Ward couldn’t even give CoD4 a rumble patch because it was “Too late”. Suck it IW.

Great job guys!

I’m so glad I bought this game. I love it when developers continually support their games. Other developers should take notice.

Also make this game part of the $5.00 deal and i’ll snatch it.

@14

IW>treyarch

world at war is nothing more than a cash cow for activision to pay IW for the next IW installment of CoD, whatever that may be.

Good news… I actually liked this game very much — more than PSN darling Super Stardust HD — and I’m glad to have an excuse to look into buying it again.

2 points to Jeff Rubenstein for getting the word out on PS3T.org!

Is ps3trophies.org an official Sony site? will there be something like the competitor where we can use our PSN login to view similar items, ie friends, trophies, etc??

+ Mana Knight on December 3rd, 2008 at 4:32 pm said:

Awesome, I loved Blast Factor back in the day and bought all expansions.

Now I wonder, will we have to re-download the game to update (like the old days) from the PS Store, or will be prompted to update like newer games?

    + rlowe on December 3rd, 2008 at 4:35 pm said:

    It will be an automatic prompt like patching any of the newer games. :) No more old-skool updates.

+ Mana Knight on December 3rd, 2008 at 4:40 pm said:

@ Jedah, If you are having problems getting the credit card to work on PSN, I recommend doing two things:

-If you live in an apartment, try putting your apartment number on address line 1, with the rest of your apartment on address line 2. A few friends of mine had that problem and it fixed it.

-The 2nd most common problem has to do with your address must be exactly the same as what the bank of your credit card/debit card has on file. If it says “oak st” on your bank’s file, then you put “oak st” exactly, not “Oak St.” as an example, since it appears to be case sensitive for some. When you buy something through the PS Store, I heard it verifies your address with the bank, and a possible difference could lead to invalid card. Some fixed it once they got the address matched.

If these two methods do not work for you, and you live in the U.S., you can find PSN Cards at Meijer (located in the Midwest only), Speedway Gas Station, Blockbuster, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Target, etc. I have been to all those stores and I can 100% confirm they carry PSN Cards.

+ LilMermaidGirl on December 3rd, 2008 at 5:22 pm said:

All sony-made PSN games should get trophy support (Calling all Cars too please!!)

I’m probably gonna buy Blast Factor tonight though. Liked the demo before but never bought it. Now I really want to.

Hey, back to those unexpected gifts. How about some free Hot Shots Golf trophies? Or MGS4 trophies? 2 AAA games that get about $40 @ GameStop, which is well worth more than the controller time they get from me right now. I would totally play both of those start to finish if the reason to do so was there…
