Bend Studio has announced that PlayStation Trophy support will be added to Siphon Filter when the brand new PlayStation Plus subscription launches.
“Agency Intel reports that Siphon Filter trophies will be included when it arrives on the all-new PlayStation Plus,” Bend Studio tweeted, with a video of a trophy being unlocked along with familiar audio. One of the trophies appears to be called “An Explosive Start” and it appears to be a silver trophy.

It’s currently unclear if this means every original PlayStation title will receive Trophy support at the premium tier, or if this is on a case-by-case basis. Bend Studio is a first-party PlayStation developer, so Sony certainly has more leverage over what to do with its own games.
There are original third-party PlayStation games on the service like Tekken 2 and Mr. Driller, and whether they’ll also get Trophy support is anyone’s guess.
As of now, Siphon Filter is the only confirmed game that will have this ability. Notably, PSP games didn’t have Trophy support, and Super Stardust Portable is listed in Premium tier. Its developer Housemarque was acquired by Sony last year and is now a first-party studio. Hopefully this functionality could be extended to PSP games as well.
Sony released its list of new PlayStation Plus games earlier this week. The revamped service is slated to launch first in Asia (excluding Japan) next week on May 24, followed by Japan on June 2. Americas will have access starting June 13th. Europe, Australia and New Zealand are the last to receive the update on June 23rd.
