MGS4 trophies not retroactive; big installation change

According to the latest podcast from Kojima Productions, players will have to start anew in Metal Gear Solid 4 in order to gather trophies.
So, there's no way to retroactively apply trophies to existing saves, so players will have to replay the game to its full extent. The trophies were implemented as a celebration of MGS4's fourth birthday, so the timing, according to the podcast, was "perfect."
Along with this news, Kojima Productions also announced that installation will have more options. Instead of having to install between each act, players will be able to apply the entire installation at once. The old installation system was meant to counter the default small hard drives that were once in the old PS3s.
The complete details on the trophy list will be announced at the Metal Gear 25th Anniversary on August 30. We'll keep you posted as we find out more.

That install feature sounds awesome, no more annoying installs between acts!
Really excited for this update.

Totally agree, @1. I spent so many hours on this game when it didn't have trophies. Now, I'll have another chance to do it all again. Going through the HD Collection has been absolutely great, and this is going to be the best icing on any cake I've ever had!

I am expecting a trophy with the description "do everything possible without messing up once on the hardest difficulty or reloading any checkpoints or dying at all in one single run."
Yeah, as much of a trophy whore I am, I will probably not go through the trouble with this game, haha

@3 yeah, it's going to be a hard platinum. I've done the Big Boss Emblem before, and I'm totally down with doing it again. Glutton for punishment, maybe. Glutton for MGS, yes.

Not a big trophy guy. But their are some games out there that I do enjoy trying to get platinums for. Some games are harder than others. I have 4 total so far. I'm hoping this one is hard to get.
