The PlayStation 3 has recovered a lot of lost ground in recent months and though the monolithic console was generally held to be the weakest of all the consoles a while back, the success of Blu-Ray and the release of Metal Gear Solid 4
has done a lot to get Sony's black beastie back nearer the top.
One area where the PlayStation is still possibly a little weak though is in the online capabilities, especially with the on-going delays to Home
. Sony appears to be on the case though and recently leaked images could show what the console maker has in plan for PSN if rumours are to be believed.

recently manage to get hold of a gallery of images showing what appears to be a 'Trophy Card' for the PlayStation 3 - a system which seems similar to Xbox's Gamercard.
While still unconfirmed, the images seem to show trophies and levels similar to those we know are planned to be featured in Home
and other PlayStation network updates.
Most intriguing of all is that there seems to be not just a trophy-gathering aspect involved in the system, but also a leveling feature that may make the trophy card a little more involving and competitive.
What do you reckon to the PlayStation 3 as a whole? Are trophy cards a good idea? Let us know what you think in the forums
