There are 50 Achievements in the Xbox 360 and PC versions of Grand Theft Auto IV and 51 Trophies in the PlayStation 3 version, with an additional five added by The Lost and Damned and 10 by The Ballad of Gay Tony downloadable episodes.
While Xbox 360 and PC achievements were available from the beginning in all game versions, to obtain trophies on the PS3 the player must have at least version 2.41 of the PS3 firmware and version 1.03 of GTA IV. Saved games from before these updates will not support trophies, so the game's story must be restarted. Some achievements/trophies are blocked temporarily in the gaming session by the use of cheats. If Episodes From Liberty City is loaded onto the PS3, it will fix the trophy glitch, thus giving you the full list.
The Xbox 360 and PC achievements are worth a total of 1000 Gamerscore points with an additional 250 points added by each downloadable episode. Achievements are tracked through Xbox LIVE, Games For Windows – LIVE, and the PlayStation Network. Since Games For Windows Live is essentially the Windows equivalent of Xbox Live, the achievements are identical and work in exactly the same way on both systems. PS3 trophies utilize trophy colors (bronze, silver, gold, and platinum) rather than a Gamerscore. Once all 50 trophies are acquired on the PS3, the player is awarded a Platinum trophy which isn't present in the other versions.
