While a lot of technology is changing with the PlayStation 5, it still remains a familiar experience, now more refined over the years. Trophies made an appearance during the PlayStation 3 era, and will unlikely to be leaving anytime soon. However, the PS5 has made some big changes to how the Trophy system works, as well as literally recording your achievements.
Kinda Funny’s Greg Miller detailed how Sony’s achievement system functions on the PS5 during a preview of Astro’s Playroom. According to his preview, the PS5 doesn’t just capture a screenshot of you unlocking a trophy, it now captures a short video of your in-game efforts when unlocking it.
In comparison to the PS4, the PlayStation 5’s Trophy recording system is a big change. Of course, the PS4 automatically takes a screenshot when you get a trophy, with the occasional black screenshot from blocked content. It’s unclear if this feature will be applied to those games that block the use of the PS4 Share function, which results in those black screenshots.
