With the great community that is TrueTrophies, and with the easy to use forums, you can keep in contact, discuss games or the site itself--or just talk about anything in general if that's what you feel like doing.
Basically it all started on TrueAchievements.com, which is the Microsoft based site where it all began for us. We couldn't just stop there, so here we are! We believe the harder a trophy is to obtain, the more value should be received for it, and that's what we're doing.

With Playstation, your trophies are worth experience points towards your overall Level or Rank on the Playstation network, across all trophy-compatible Playstation devices. As you accumulate trophies and build experience, you gain levels. Each trophy has a value. Bronze all have one value, Silver, Gold and even Platinums all have a value towards your level. However, not all bronze, silver, gold, and platinum trophies are comparable to the others of their kind (some platinums are much easier to attain than others).

That's where we come in.

We've decided that a trophy's difficulty can be accurately approximated by using a formula based on how many people have that trophy compared to how many people own the game. We also understand the phrase 'accurately approximated' is a contradiction in terms but are refusing to remove it on the grounds that it sounds impressive.

From there we multiply the original experience points given to the trophy by our difficulty score and end up with the TrueTrophy score for that trophy.

By adding up the TrueTrophy experience points for all the trophies you have won, you get your TrueTrophy Score, of which you should be terribly proud.
