2.0) About Trophies
-------------------

What is a Tropy? Well, with the firmware 2.40 the PS3 system gains a new and
quite interesting feature: the Tropies. Theese are some goals to archieve,
similar to the skill point system of other games (like the Resistance,
Uncharted and Ratcket & Clank games), when you will aquire the tropy you will
gain experience and levels on your personal profile on the Playstation Network,
just like a RPG game, so other players will be able to see your gaming skills.
Sounds dumb, but it's really interesting.

Remember one very important thing: the trophies must be awarded PLAYING the
game, you cannot obtain them simply dowloading a save game. Trophies are
registered on your profile inside the console, not in the installed game data,
or the game save. No cheating this time, it will be only up to you!

Tropies are divided in four classes: bronze, silver and gold Tropies. Each
class is of course more difficult to archieve than the previous one. There is
also a fourth class: the platinum tropy, to gain this one you have to collect
ALL (I repeat: ALL) the bronze, silver and gold trophies for that game.
