Everyone loves new features, right? Even if they're not exactly earth-shattering, new features enhance the universal appeal of a particular application, and a few more are in store for the PlayStation Network.

As the Portal Manager for SCEE wrote over at the European PlayStation Blog , the PSN will receive two new enhancements, following on the heels of the last batch of upgrades that hit a few months ago. In just a few weeks time, Sony will add a "My Trophies – Compare with your friends" page, which is exactly what it sounds like: line up your Trophy list with a friend's, and see who has what. Then there's the Trophies Leaderboard, which shows your exact position in relation to all your other PSN buddies. Bear in mind, though, that these features appear to only be confirmed for the Euro PlayStation site; the title of the article itself says, "PSN on eu.playstation.com," so beyond this information, we don't know where else these upgrades may land. But at least these are two oft-requested features, and it's good to know that Sony is continually listening to gamer suggestions. Of course, there are many possibilities when it comes to the PSN, and we may see something very special when the "expanded Network" supposedly rolls out next spring…who doesn't want the Network to be on most any Sony electronic device?

Anyway, the more features the better. Sure, we may not use 'em all, but it's always nice to know they're there.

I still don't have access to Vidzone 🙁

Just wondering how this is accessed. I have an EU PSN account… will the comparison widget be accessible via the XMB; impossible if there is no physical upgrade to the firmware I would assume…

Q!

"i am home"

I don't get it, we already have something where you can line up your trophies with your friends to compare them, the only thing i don't think we have is a leaderboard haha

I think they mean the line up with more than one friend. If not, I don't know what they are talking about!

great point!!

i HATE how that is!!!

who's stupid idea was that????

if you wanna see the time in the middle of a game you have to wait for the black screen instead of the XMB

New features are always nice. I hope these make it in NA soon too.

Say, Ben? Have you seen the reports that Home's Head Honcho has said that Home will become essential as game launching from within Home becomes universal to new games? It almost sounds like he's suggesting that Home may still live up to the potential as a replacement for the XMB.

I wonder whether any of these new features, especially the My Trophy stuff will have a Home based component? Perhaps a trophy Room for your Homespace?

Some people on this site should work on their trophies. Their venting more on here than playing their games and obtaining trophies.

I won't mention names but that's why i respect guys like Benny Mac in the forums who have like 27000+ achievements plus Level 5 trophies on his 360 and ps3 respectively.

LOL World, guilty conscience huh? Lol you need to work on ya trophies,you still on level 4 lol, well i also need to work on mine, am on level 5 with about 3%

Okay i hear all you, maybe you just don't care about trophies. I think trophies have made me play my games more, else i'll beat a game and the next thing i'd be selling it.

Trophies are like a challenge, And I say bring it on. I'm at level 9 and climbing my friends.

So far the only trophies I have just kinda showed up, the first one I'm actually going for is a very simple one on Fallout 3 because that game is just awesome.

timster118 thumbs up for being on level 9.

World it seems you want platinum on Fallout 3, i have about 630G achievements on that, i wonder how i'd fair if i had it on ps3.I think THEPILL has 100% Platinum on Fallout 3.

Is platinum just getting all the other ones? I'm serious when I say I don't even look at them.

I'm with JoshBall, I compare my trophies to my friends all the time right now….is this different somehow?

I see his games and he sees my games and trophy progress percentage in each.

For some reason the Euro site is far superior to the NA site.
