Hell no, but it sure helps to seal the deal. I just think some people don't understand the allure of trophies/achievements. To dismiss achievements is no different than dismissing points, leaderboards, easter eggs, secret rooms, collectibles, and game specific challenges.
Done right, trophies can save a game from its own flaws.
Wow, this is amazing, and is exactly what I wanted. So awesome that there's trophies, and for $40, this is awesome. Will pre-order when I get money. I definitely have to play these games before 3 comes out.
-many of them never played BC games on the PS3,
-it is a pain in the ass and ugly mess.
-Only some PS2 games support Wide-Screen, most do not.
-the settings on the PS3 to get the PS2 games too look are a pain in the ass
DAY 1 for me. 720P remastered to fit my screen so I don't have to convulge on the floor trying to get a Ps2 game looking for in HD
