Infinity Ward to patch Modern Warfare 2 ASAP
Many gamers have noticed that trophies are not unlocking and the list itself isn’t even showing up in the Trophy Collection section of the XMB. It has also been noted that friends are having a very difficult time setting up a party together, and it has brought many frowns to the vocal online community.
Thanks for the feedback from PS3 players we already have a patch in the wings for release. Trophy update asap. Party invite update by Friday
The wait isn’t too long, right? At least a fix is coming only days after the release. For people that want their trophies now, it has been reported that by changing your PS3’s date to the 11th of November, the trophy list will appear. This has been confirmed to work for some people, but not all. Deleting the Game Data (not Save Data), and then canceling the version 1.01 update prompt has also fixed the trophy issue for some gamers. After the list appears, just start up MW2 again and update, and everything should be fine after that.
It doesn’t hurt to try to combine both methods together to see if that fixes the issue for you. It should be noted though that you will have to replay sections of the game again in order to unlock trophies, even if you already met the requirements.
We can confirm that changing the date did fix our trophy issue, and we have been unlocking them properly ever since.
