PS3 Trophies and the PC VersionFollow

Since all new PS3 games are being required to have trophies, I'm assuming that FFXIV will have some as well. My question is whether or not you think these trophies, or a PC equivalent, should show up in some form in the PC version and be integrated within the game (a la a compare or view trophies feature)? Also, what sorts of trophies would you like to see?

One aspect of WoW that I really liked were the achievements that they implemented. FFXI implemented achievements for XBox 360 players, but most of them were such huge tasks (Lv. 75 jobs, 100 craft skills, relic weapons - definitely worthy of the term "achievement") that very few people had many of them completed. I would like to see some trophies that are not necessarily easy to obtain, but not tedious to obtain either. Ideally, we wouldn't need to level every single job in the game to cap in order to get all of the trophies, but we should be able to obtain them all on a single job (assuming FFXIV even lets you change jobs). The most worthwhile trophies shouldn't be a grind, but rather a challenge, which seems to be a very fine line in most MMORPGs.

I was actually hoping it would be either a Games for Windows LIVE or a Steam game.
Both of these platforms have their achievments and also intergrate community outside the game. In-game achievements like in WoW always seemed like a pointless idea because the people who would seem them probably just don't care

It will have trophies, and i bet this game won't have "Games for Windows" logo.

Anyways, ingame archivement sucks, they are worth nothing and just for show off.

Since Xbox 360 has Achievements for FFXI then I'm pretty sure FFXIV will have its own for PS3. I don't know if FFXIV will form part of Games for live but it will surely not form part of steam either. But what they need to do is really really improve the Trophies. I was half disappointed by the achievements at FFXI for 360. They all had the same picture and were all secret. What's the point of unlocking achievements if only people that have unlocked it can see it? Sure secret achievements are for not spoiling stuff but what are you spoiling with Samurai level 75 achievement? or "Completed X Quest" or "Gained Title X". I believe the secret tag was totally unnecesary. Also the achievements had no pictures. If I want to show off my Sam level 75 achievement I want it to have a katana at the pic or a AF helmet of a Sam or something. Not a picture that makes no sense and is the same used in every achievement.
