A Year After Release, NBA 2K18's Trophies Are Finally Working

By Sam Quirke,
Since release, the PlayStation 3 version of NBA-2K18's entire list of trophies has effectively been unobtainable due to a PSN synchronisation error that the developers and Sony have not been able to resolve. That has just changed today, as the trophies have suddenly turned up on the network.
