Hideo Kojima Says Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Doesn’t Have Platinum Trophy Due to “Sony’s Regulation”

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes launches this week, giving players (and long-time Metal Gear fans) their first taste of what to expect from the first current-gen Metal Gear title to arrive on PS4 and Xbox One. However, those looking to collect a Platinum Trophy from the (relatively) short title will be disappointed.

Earlier this week it was reported that Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes contained the usual variety of trophies (totaling about 15 altogether), but did not contain a Platinum Trophy for earning all the remaining trophies. Likewise, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima confirmed through Twitter that Ground Zeroes would not have a Platinum Trophy due to “Sony’s regulation.”

While the majority of titles on Sony’s consoles contain trophies/a Platinum Trophy (with the exception of some older titles on PS3), curiously no other details were given to the absence of a Platinum Trophy for MGS V: Ground Zeroes – stay tuned for more (potential) details.
