PS3 Firmware v4.30 launches today, Vita trophies now viewable

PSN Trophies

With the launch of the Playstation Vita, many fans of the system were happy to hear that their Playstation Network account would work on the handheld as well as their Playstation 3. However, trophies earned on the Playstation Vita have not yet been able to be viewed on the Playstation 3.

That all changes today with the launch of the Playstation 3′s latest firmware version 4.30. Your friends will now be able to view any trophies that you’ve earned on the Playstation Vita while on their PS3.

In addition to this continuously asked for change, the trophies have now been moved under the Playstation Network portion of the XMB. It may take users a bit to get familiar with this new position, but it’s a sacrifice that can gladly be made with the Vita trophy support.
