Would your trophies keep you tied to Sony...?

Lets pretend the PS4 really disappoints. Hardware-wise it doesn't seem a ton better than the PS3, feature-wise it's not a lot better, poor launch titles and little sign of improvement on the horizon. Then Microsoft brings out a console that is truly "next-gen", the Xbox 720.
Would your trophies play a role in deciding whether or not you go Xbox? Is your PSN account too precious to give up on, even if the next Playstation console is kind of a dud?

Also if the Xbox where to be as far ahead as you described it you would be an idiot not to switch over

The major thing that keeps me on the ps3 is that I don't have to pay to play live. If PS4 made PS+ mandatory and the console was a dud, I'd be back to achievement huntin'

If the ps4 is horrible, instead of forking out money for an xbox 720 i just won't buy the ps4 and will stick with my ps3 which will still be good and the games will be cheaper on ps3 as well at that time so i'd be able to get alot of trophies quickly rather than spending the higher price of games on a new console.
I'm planning, if the ps4 is good, i will buy it once it's price reaches around $300AUD and a slim version is out. If it isn't good i'll stick with my ps3 and continue playing games on it.

But to answer question by OP, yes. The PS3 and their trophy system plays a big part in My gaming. Everything about the PS3 to Me is sleek. Still, the PS4 better not disappoint.

well the PS have a special place in my heart, but not more than that. Trophies or not ps3 is the best consul I have tried even better than xbox360 (now that I bought one for 2 months ago) so Iam pretty satisfied with the ps3.
xbox720 or ps4 will wait A LONG time.

Feel free to add me on PSN with a message that you are from here. If you see a game that I'm high in percentage, but am missing online trophies, I'll definitely boost with you!

Nope, it be my hatred for Xbox more than my love for playstation.
I wouldn't switch to Xbox because my family isn't going to pay for 3 gold accounts just so we each can play on our names like we do now for free. Multiple gamers in one house should be able to use the same service if they paid for it. I could possibly be convinced to switch over in the absolute worst case scenario described above, but only and I mean only, if Microsoft fixed that issue. Otherwise I'd stick with PS3 for a long time. It's not like I don't already have a huge backlog of games or something...

I won't stick with Sony because of my trophies. If a competitor's console in the next generation has more games that I'll play as compared to a PS4, I'll jump ship faster than you can say Jack Robinson.
That being said, I probably wouldn't buy a next generation console when it first comes out. I'd wait for a substantial number of game developers to migrate to said next generation and the current one to become far less viable, the same way I didn't migrate from PS2 to PS3 quite so early.

EDIT: Then again, I prefer Sony's exclusives over Xbox's, but we shall see.

if the PS4 was to disappoint, I would ride My PS3 till it died. Then go out & buy Me another even slimmer slim with a bigger HD. And ride that till it dies.
I am with ya' there BDK. There are still a shit-load of games I haven't played, and the PS3 will keep me busy for some time to come. I have always been a SONY fan since the PS1, and it is for that reason, not trophies, achievements or anything else that I stick with them.
If the PS4 were to turn out to be a dud, I won't purchase one and do just as you stated in the quote.
Just as trophies don't drive my gaming choices on the PS3, neither will it for the PS4 or to make a switch to the XBOX for "cheevos".

Hell I've still got Ps2 games in my collection that I haven't played yet.
Yeah, I guess you could say I'm in the same boat...The Gaming Collection
Honestly, I don't think I need to buy another game and still never have something "new" to play...hell, I still have games shrink-wrapped in the back room. However, as long as Sony puts out a quality system, I don't have a need to go somewhere else.
