Are there trophies that are a chore/grind to do? And you're saying I'd have to work twice to get them? If so that's just.... meh.


Doing the arcade mode with every character is a chore and almost made me quit playing the game.

Everything transfers including challenge progress/mode completion. It just doesn't ping the trophies to unlock in the other version

I want to play this game, but I don't want to pay $40 for it.

Thanks for contributing to the thread. :)

Anyone switched to the Digital version from the game card? Any issues?
I just picked this up from BB; same price.

I wonder if the recent price drop means the game will be on the PSN holiday sale. If so, it might be even cheaper with PS+.

The trophies are insanely easy to get. The only "long ones" are beating the campaign with each character, but each campaign only takes about 30 minutes per character to beat.

If you actually try for the trophies, you could get the platinum in about 3 to 4 days. Most of the trophies that sound hard are achievable in practice mode. The only actual hard trophy in the game is win an online match without dying, which is FAR easier to accomplish in a versus game mode, just stay back with one of the shooting characters like raiden and avoid enemies when they get close to you. It's actually pretty easy.

I'm glad the trophies are separate, because they're incredibly easy to get.

It was $40 like a week ago on there, I assume it's the same now.

You make it sound so easy!

Here's why I wonder this... Retro City Rampage is a cross buy game and shows up on my trophy list as one game. Yes I can be bought separately but if you own both it's one list, and it has cross save too. That's why I assumed every cross buy game was like this.

Okay my fellow CAGs, this is what happened to me today. Like I said, I bought this at GameStop last week for $60. I went to GameStop today to trade in some games, pick up my Skylander preorder and to try to get a price match for this. When I first asked the clerk about price match, he told me "sorry" but he could not do it. As we were going through the transaction for the trade ins, I asked why didn't GameStop do price match if Best Buy and Walmart did it. The clerk told me that GameStop didnt like to do it because it causes them to lose money. So I merely stated "GameStop doesn't like to do it doesn't mean that they didn't do it." The clerk didn't answer me and continued with my trade in transaction. When I was finished, the clerk tells me "you know what, let me get the receipt and I'll do the markdown for you", and he returned $20 back to my debit card. So yes I would say this is EXTREMELY YMMV. I guess you just have to get the right clerk! Good luck everyone!

I don't know much about the cross-save feature, because I only have the Vita version, but I do know that All Stars is by far the most easiest platinum I've ever got. I got 50% of the trophies within the first week of playing the game, and I wasn't even trying for them. I am by no means a trophy hunter, I have about 10 platinums (bought the ps3 on launch and have been playing ever since, so 10 in that time isn't really that much compared to others), give or take a few, I only try for platinums on games I really love, but getting all the trophies in all stars was the easiest and least time consuming platinums I've ever got.

And when the PS3 version of all stars reaches $20, I'll buy it and go for the platinum on that version. So if you're concerned about acquiring trophies on both versions, don't be, because I guarantee you it's far easier and quicker to get both All Stars plats than it is to get a single plat in most other games. You don't even have to beat the campaign on the hardest mode (3 modes, normal, medium, hard), you just have to beat it on medium one time.

Then there's a bunch of trophies for performing a level 3 super with an amount of characters on their respective stages (lvl3 super with big daddy on columbia level, lvl3 super with ratchet on metropolis, etc, and several other charcters), and ALL of those trophies can be done in practice mode, with an idle enemy that just stands there and doesn't fight back. You can make it go by even quicker by just pressing start and setting your super level to 3, so you can do it instantly without having to build it up.

If the trophies are what's holding you back, then stop worrying about it and buy the game now, you'll get double the trophies for a miniscule amount of time and work.

I wish I had a $10 off coupon. Oh well I am sure the price will hit $30 sooner or later. I did enjoy the demo. Great buy if you have a Vita

Isn't this game supposed to be cross play? I got a d.load of this for free with my Vita bundle, but when i look at it it only mentions vita on it. Is there any way to play it on the PS3 and vita or are the d.load versions NOT cross play enabled?

Since you get a vita version, it doesn't come with a PS3 one. Only buying a PS3 version of anything that offers cross play will give you the vita version.
