I noticed a weird glitch on PSN in how my trophy listings appear. Just wondering if that's happened to others as well?

 

I spotted a couple of days ago that trophy info was not updating on my PS3. Then I saw that the listing for FF X/HD Remaster had dropped out of its alphabetical spot to the bottom ... and now all text for that trophy is in Japanese (!).

 

It's not exactly a huge problem, but I'm a bit intrigued.

The trophy updating has resumed normally otherwise.

 

I note that PSN had a maintenance period this morning - but the glitch with FF X had started well before that, and continues after maintenance.

are you sure it's not in Chinese coz mine is!! it's not gibberish either (thought it might've just put in random characters), it's the correct trophy names except in Chinese ._.

I'm sorry - I didn't look too closely and just *assumed* it was Japanese ... 

Strange though, isn't it? To just flip language like that.

It's only that one game affected, for you as well, is that right?

 

UPDATE:

I had the sense only just now to finally Google! LOL

There are messages everywhere ...

I feel kinda reassured.  :D

On topic but not relevant to today, when the big outage happened for ages my infamous trophy title was in japanese.

 

Its sometimes strange and screwy for no reason but they sort that sh*t pretty quick.

 

Having said that isn't today the scheduled outage day?

Yep - it's been and gone :)

Happened this morning, all finished by 9:30 apparently.

Oh.

 

Maybe all trophy lists are stored natively in Japanese and it auto translates every time you view it and they forgot to turn that service back on.

Nope, the reason is entirely different - lots of info via google and other forums. I forget the precise ins and outs ... but apparently it has happened before, in some regions.

 

Most likely it has something to do with a new Chinese version of FF X coming out; and for some reason the details for that have got scrambled with trophy info for UK English accounts. If your chosen language is US English, then you're not affected.

Maybe Japan is preparing to take over the world and the scheduled outage was to prepare our networks to translate all to Japanese but accidentally left it that way on some versions of the network.

Mine is a US digital copy purchased from PSN directly...Also noticed the trophy names were either in Chinese or Japanese.

 

Not too bothered though because at least we have the symbols to check side by side with a trophy guide. Just take it all as a hidden trophy.

I noticed a while ago I had the same problem, although interestingly FFX is completely in Chinese but for X-2, the name of the game shows up in English still even though all the trophies are in Chinese.  Very odd, I never really looked into it as it didn't bother me, but it's kind of good to know it's not just me!
