The PlayStation 4 version of Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes doesn't include a Platinum trophy because Sony won't allow them in budget releases, Hideo Kojima has explained.

"The reason GZ doesn't have Platinum Trophy in PS4 is due to SONY's regulation,” he wrote on Twitter this morning. "They won't allow us to have them for non-full price game."

Kojima's response follows confusion from fans disappointed at being unable to unlock a Platinum trophy in the game – the highest ranking Trophy type available in PlayStation titles.

Instead, the game is expected to feature 13 bronze trophies, one silver trophy and a single gold trophy. The game costs £29.99 on PlayStation 4, somewhat lower than the typical RRP for a next-gen title.

Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes launches this Friday on PS3, PS4, Xbox One and Xbox 360. Head back to VideoGamer.com tomorrow morning for our review.

The achievement system was a fantastic market implementation of meta-gamification, gaming the games, if you will - will all the psychological rammifications that brings.

Personally, I think they were an innovative idea, that quickly went stale with unimaginative publishers.

I don't get it. Is the Reason People wanna play the Game some Trophy or the Gameplay?

I mean, you still can do exactly what you could do if you would get some Trophy for it. Whats so important about that ingame Pop-Up?

People actually complain about this stuff? I am glad I moved to ps4 from 360 as even I subconsciously played some games a certain way just to get an achievement, I have a feeling with the trophy system being not as prevalent this will not bother me anymore on the ps4, and I will go back to playing games the way I want too, and stop the OCDness of collecting achievement points.

You can get them in the Walking Dead though? Isn't the season £15.99 at full price? Inconsistent.
