Achievements? Gamerscore? Not For The PS3.
My favorite part of the 360 is my gamerscore/achievements (Go ahead call me a Gamerscore whore!) and Sony confirms that they (1st party) will have nothing of the sort:
Speaking with Game|Life, SCEA's executive vp Jack Tretton confirmed that PlayStation 3 user accounts will not feature an aggregate score based on gaming accomplishments, squashing rumors that Sony would counter Microsoft's gamerscore/achievement system with "entitlements."
...third-party publishers will have the option to include their own achievement-like rewards, "on a game-by-game basis."
Wow. So 3rd party individual games can have their own score? Sounds great... Well you get what you pay for and Sony keeps saying, "free".
