It seems that Sony’s “entitlements” are making an appearance in upcoming PlayStation 3 title, Dark Sector. The hint came from Josh Austin, a producer at D3 Publisher, who told MTV Multiplayer: “Including medals or entitlements as we call them in Dark Sector was definitely forward-thinking by the developer, Digital Extremes. From the start of development, we planned that gamers would have a compelling gameplay experience regardless of platform.” Once the entitlement is unlocked, “players will receive an in-game message that they have unlocked an entitlement.”
Entitlements was originally brought up in July 2006 and since then there has been in-game rewards (e.g. “medals” in Resistance: Fall of Man) but nothing compared to the XBOX 360’s Achievements. Recently, Devil May Cry 4 contained an identical achievement list for XBOX 360 and PS3 but the PlayStation 3 list was known as “accomplishments.”
achievement entitlements list will be appearing on Console Monster in the near future.
