Remember that Metal Gear Solid trophy patch that PS3 gamers have been nagging Konami for the last four years? Well it’s really coming, and I mean really.
The trophy patch will be released sometime in “the beginning of August.” Dear lord, that’s right now! (As of this post’s publish date, it isn’t out yet.)
The full trophy list was revealed today by Yoshikazu Matsuhana on the US PlayStation Blog. Here’s how the trophies are divvied up:
Bronze – You enjoy all the killing, that’s why. – Killed many enemies in one area, and vomited.
Bronze – Divine Wind. – Caused a “divine wind” using the Tanegashima.
Bronze - Hands Up! – Held an enemy soldier at gunpoint and performed a body check.
Bronze – Emotion Control – Controlled an enemy soldier’s emotions using an Emotive Magazine.
Bronze – Hurt me more! – Shocked an enemy soldier using Mk. II/III.
Bronze – Drum Can Addict – Knocked an enemy soldier flying using a Drum Can.
Bronze – That Tune Is His Mind Control Music – Played Oishii Two-han Seikatsu and made one of the BB Corps dance.
Bronze – Overhead view, just like old times… – Used overhead view on Shadow Moses Island.
Silver – SUNLIGHT! – Obtained the Solar Gun.
Silver – I Just Don’t Fear Death – Caused ALERT status while wearing the Corpse Camo.

Silver – Ghost Photography Addict – Snapped at least 5 shots of ghosts on Shadow Moses Island.
Silver – FaceCamo Addict – Obtained 10 or more types of FaceCamo (excluding types obtained via password).
Silver – Can you feel my power now!!!? – Took control of an enemy soldier’s body using the Mantis Doll or Sorrow Doll.
Silver – Are you an Otaku too? – Viewed all model posters.
Silver – You’re pretty good. – Got kissed by Ocelot during the final battle.

Gold – Sounds of the Battlefield – Obtained all iPod tracks (excluding tracks obtained via password).

Platinum – The Legendary Hero – Obtained all trophies.
If you were looking forward to a lot of story-related freebie trophies, too bad!
Most of these trophies are ones that you earn through special gameplay. Many of these are harder to come by, especially if you’re the type to play through a game once without looking for all of the hidden elements. Since the Metal Gear Solid fanbase is so enthusiastic, I don’t think this will turn too many people off.
Hell, I didn’t need a trophy to tell me to look at all the model posters.
Also, in case you were wondering, you do have to beat all the difficulty levels in order to get the platinum trophy. The iPod songs require that.
