A trophy unlocking in the PS3 game Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.
The Playstation 3 is a home video game console created by Sony. It was the first console to have trophies, though it did not have them until system software version 2.40 was released on July 2, 2008. Trophies on this console typically have a delay of about 5 – 7 seconds between satisfying the conditions for unlocking a trophy and having its notification actually pop up on the screen.


Over its lifespan, the Playstation 3 received numerous updates and patches that affected how trophies work.
