Sony first unveiled an overhead trophy system for the PlayStation. However, the company has yet to show how the trophy will work on the PlayStation 5, in terms of the reshuffle it will bring to the screen. Of course, the limited details about the Dual License Controller’s ‘Create Button’ address your own set of queries in this regard. Some of these questions have now been answered, thanks to a new video that shows what happens when players receive a trophy on the next-gen console.
Canada Funeral’s Greg Miller shared the video above via a recent Twitter post. Check it out in the tweet below:

On PlayStation 4, the system captures the trophy screenshots of the players of the moment. Sometimes captures are great, maybe even better to share on social media. Not often, however, screenshots will show only a black screen or a strange camera angle.
As evidenced by Miller’s video, the PS5 will solve this by capturing a few seconds of footage. After winning the trophy in the clip above, a lead-in graphic appears at the bottom of the screen. It represents the type of graphic trophy, the bronze in this case and its description. This opens the moment before the general trophy icon appears in the upper-right corner of the screen. Such an upgrade to the formula should allow players more options when it comes to sharing trophy promotions.
Hopefully, Sony itself will reveal all of the above details soon. And we’re still waiting for additional information on the obvious digital rewards that will come with the opening of some trophies to the next public.
The PlayStation 5 hits stores in the US, Japan, Australia, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand and South Korea on November 12. The next-generation console will launch a week later on November 19 in Europe, the Middle East, South America, Asia and South Africa.
