Let's say that I have earned 100% of the trophies in Borderlands 2 on the PS3. If I were to play the PS Vita version, would it register as a new game on my PSN, therefore allowing me to earn all the trophies again? Or rather, would it stack on top of my existing trophies?

And in the same line of question: Would it be possible to transfer the save files of my game from the PS3 to the PS Vita? That is, if thy use the same file format.

Thanks!

    Note that trophy implementation for cross-save games are implementation dependent. Sometimes it's the same trophy list, sometimes it's not and sometimes earning a trophy in one save then loading a cross-save awards you a trophy and sometimes not. So this game's implementation could be different from others'.

  • In line with what @BenBrocka said, I'll add the game-specific tag to this, because it really does depend. Or not, since it seems like my browser is acting up and won't let me save changes. Whatever.

  • I believe it depends on how the game is marketed. For instance, with "Fez", you buy it once, you get it on PS3/PS4/Vita and all versions share trophies. For Borderlands, the Vita version is sold differently, and so it is considered a "different" game. It's the game code itself that awards the actual trophies, so the publisher would control if you get trophies from saves.

Transferring the save game can be done with a recent update to the PS3 version.

For the trophies there are two separate lists, but if you transfer a save from the PS3 which has acquired trophies it will unlock them on the Vita, and vice versa. So, you can go through unlocking them all again if you want to, or you can transfer a save from your old game to unlock ones you've already acquired.

    So let's say the PS3 version have 50 trophies, I can win 50 free trophies just by transfering my save file to the Vita? That would be amazing! May 22, 2014 at 14:25
  • @Jean-FrançoisCôté That's how it seems to be working, yes.

  • @TZHX This is exactly what happens with Motorstorm RC, I got two Platinums for the price of one.

No, PS3 and Vita have the same trophy list. There is cross save between PS3 and vita for Borderlands 2.

    Not necessarily. It depends on the developer. Some games share trophies, some do not.

  • They may have the same trophy list (available trophies and unlock conditions), but it appears twice in the 'Games' when you look at your PSN / trohpies app.

You will not re-earn trophies.
