Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 Trophy List Revealed!

Yoshikazu Matsuhana's Avatar Posted by on Aug 03, 2012 // Producer, Metal Gear Solid 4 Trophy Project

Update: The patch is now live in North America. Happy Trophy hunting!

Platinum Trophy

Did you all experience Metal Gear Solid 4 back in 2008? Or maybe for some reason you missed it? The Trophy system was introduced to PS3 in the middle of 2008. However, by that time, MGS4 had already finished development and was about to launch, so we were regrettably unable to implement Trophies at launch. But, we’ve always had it on our to-do list and users have given us continuous feedback requesting Trophies over the years.

For all those who have asked “where are the Trophies?” we are very sorry for the long wait. However, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Metal Gear series, we are very pleased to announce that trophies will finally be coming to MGS4 in the beginning of August!

Furthermore, retail versions of the game in stores will be updated to offer native Trophy support out of the box.

For loyal fans and new players alike, there’s never been a better time to relive the experience of MGS4. The timeless PS3 classic is back – now with full Trophy support!!

seems little for some reason.

Now that MGS4 finally got it’s trophy patch… (Thanks Kojima!) It’s probably time for Valkyria Chronicles to have it’s own trophy patch ┐( ̄ー ̄)┌ (Looks @Sega).


+ KainDrake on August 3rd, 2012 at 9:48 pm said:

Do we have to start a completely new save file, or does starting a new game with the current save file grant me the trophies too?


+ nicadeemus on August 3rd, 2012 at 10:10 pm said:

There are only two ways to get the Scanning Plug. Entering a cheat and logging 10 hours of online play. But the online is closed down. Does this mean we will have to use a cheat code to platinum?

Just as with the HD collection, this is pretty lame.

i cant wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


+ Richard919 on August 4th, 2012 at 12:37 am said:

i have the platinum trophies for mgs2 and mgs3. currently working on peace walker. i WILL plat the entire mgs series!


+ VendettaLion on August 4th, 2012 at 1:29 am said:

Very excitied for this update! This is a lession to those who sell their games, especially legendary titles such as Metal Gear Solid : ) Hoping the update is available on Monday (fingers crossed).


+ Takehaniyasubiko on August 4th, 2012 at 1:30 am said:

I LOVE these trophies. Just like the MGS HD Collection ones, you earn many for performing Kojimasque actions that 90% of players wouldn’t normally even think about doing. These trophies are the perfect way to broaden your knowledge of the game. Plus, it’s not even the full list. Now, please release this patch already. This is “the beginning of August!”. We know it just waits there and it’s a matter of giving the green light so do it NOW. We’ve waited enough.

Oh, yeah… THANK YOU FOR ADDING THIS (eventually, lol)! =)


+ sdgundum990 on August 4th, 2012 at 1:44 am said:

What about those of us who already own the game? Will there be a large scale patch?


+ navcomm81 on August 4th, 2012 at 4:00 am said:

Disappointing trophies in my opinion. Trophies are more enjoyable when they’re fun to get, but most of these require you to deviate from the normal way that one would play the game, and therefore it takes away from the true experience.


+ wocyob on August 4th, 2012 at 4:14 am said:

thank you thank you thank you!!!!


+ ZombiesTT on August 4th, 2012 at 5:05 am said:

Yeah boyeeee. Now to replay a great game!


+ Unjust007 on August 4th, 2012 at 5:21 am said:

Looking forward to this, looks damn awesome!


+ Gaucho21 on August 4th, 2012 at 6:57 am said:

I still wish this game would have ended 5 minutes earlier than it actually did. I think that would have made the story infinitely better.


+ mikedo2007 on August 4th, 2012 at 7:20 am said:

This is going to make my gameplay more interesting. Maybe more past games should be patch for trophies like Elder Scroll: Oblivion, Valkyria Chronicles should have those.


+ webbster20 on August 4th, 2012 at 7:30 am said:

For everybody who missed the memo, in order to complete the trophies you need to get the big boss emblem. The fact that it’s not directly reflected in a trophy adds a sort of elegance to it.


+ SWITCH_00599 on August 4th, 2012 at 7:34 am said:

Thats a 100% sure platinum for me :D very nice thanks Kojima

Laugh & Grow Fat!!


+ xCh0z3n-0n3x on August 4th, 2012 at 8:05 am said:

Will i be playing MGS4 all over again? YES

Will i get Platinum on MGS4 FU*K YES!!! i have been waiting for this ever since the game came out…and i STILL have the same copy i bought the day it came out.


+ clipper1118 on August 4th, 2012 at 8:42 am said:

I think some people are forgetting that to get all the ipod songs requires getting every emblem thus having to beat the game on the hardest difficulties.


+ MushThePainter on August 4th, 2012 at 10:01 am said:

sweet, i just bought this game for 8 bucks!! hey if anyones interested in free PSN or Xbox Live cards add me on PSN @ MushThePainter, ill answer your questions, just download the free app JunoWallet or Bamboo Wallet and use the code CK1169746 for a bonus reward, all i did was download free apps and watch videos, its the fastest way to earn free PSN Cards, XBox live cards and GameStop cards, no bs


+ xtremeimport on August 4th, 2012 at 10:35 am said:

this is not a complaint, but doesnt the list seem a little small?


+ SephirothItachi- on August 4th, 2012 at 10:37 am said:

! Well this is gonna be a hard platinum to earn. Luckily since it’s been out so long there’s more than enough guides for everything


+ YungShep on August 4th, 2012 at 10:52 am said:

WHAT @155 SAID!!! :)


+ cool_Pinoy2343 on August 4th, 2012 at 11:22 am said:

the hardest one will definitely be the Ipod songs. Snake Eater is basically a platinum in itself.


+ cool_Pinoy2343 on August 4th, 2012 at 11:35 am said:

estimated platinum time is like 50 or so hours for the seasoned MGS4 connoisseur. the ipod songs are gonna be tricky and the scanning plug emblem is also gonna be tricky since they include having to play MGO at least once. most likely these wont be retroactive.

also this trophy list is great since obviously its a little light but i bet there are hidden ones for the story/chapter related trophies. i see people here complaining about “oh this trophy list sucks because you have to go out of your way to get em and such, not rewarding enough for the experience”. the game’s been out since 2008, if you haven’t played the game for the experience yet then i don’t know what to tell you.

+ Nee-er on August 4th, 2012 at 2:05 pm said:

So they’re adding trophies but got rid of multiplayer? I’d trade these obscure trophies for multiplayer. Especially when I haven’t gotten to play multiplayer yet!


+ dinkin-flicka on August 4th, 2012 at 2:07 pm said:

So I pulled my MGS4 CE box out and and ready to re-play it for the nth time. When’s the update?


+ Septicus on August 4th, 2012 at 3:18 pm said:

I have had severe separation anxiety ever since MGO was shut down. I am hoping with all my heart that they have decided to open it back up, but through the PSN and not Konami portal. Maybe that is why some of the trophies are still hidden, because they are bringing back MGO the greatest multiplayer that ever existed…
I can only hope, my life has been completely hollow without several hours of Metal Gear Online a day…plus the whole scanning plug thing just seems to be funny if you can only get it through cheat code or by playing MGO.

I only bought a playstation to play metal gear online and hardly touch it now that MGO is closed. These trophies sound fun though…MGS4 is the best game ever made (that isn’t online).

Funny enough I just played back through MGS1 for the first time since 1998 and it made me nostalgic for MGS4!


+ Heisem on August 4th, 2012 at 5:00 pm said:

the best ps3 game


+ solidus4400 on August 4th, 2012 at 5:54 pm said:

Yes finally maybe to celebrate they should bring MGO!


+ John-Shooter on August 4th, 2012 at 6:09 pm said:

now if you can put trophies in a game ilke this why cant other devs like ubisoft or insomniac update resistance 1 or assassin’s creed 1.. guys seriously get off your A##!!.. you’d make more money off the games if you gave them this simple update!


+ xigbar93 on August 4th, 2012 at 6:41 pm said:

Oh, yaaaaaay, trophies…too bad I sold this game about three years ago. xD


+ Ruben023 on August 4th, 2012 at 6:53 pm said:

It’s been over 4 years & MGS4 still has the best graphics ever!


+ rodrigobit on August 4th, 2012 at 7:06 pm said:

I have a question, doing some research on the ipod tune i found this:

Tune: Subsistence Action

How to get: Play a game of Metal Gear Online

We dont have MGO anymore … so now what?


+ SHINSPIKES on August 4th, 2012 at 8:01 pm said:

I’m guessing the patch comes out when ps4 is out right? Or maybe when GT6 is out? Or after MGS7?


+ Senjutsu_Dav on August 4th, 2012 at 9:26 pm said:

Was about time, lol. I’m sad and happy, I’ll have to do the game again, haha. I need a platinum trophy in this game since it’s the best game the ps3 ever had! ^_^
