Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes for the PlayStation 4 will not have a Platinum Trophy available for players to unlock, series creator Hideo Kojima said on Twitter today. The reason? Sony doesn't allow Platinum Trophies for budget-priced games, he said.

"The reason GZ doesn't have Platinum Trophy in PS4 is due to SONY's regulation," Kojima said. "They won't allow us to have them for non-full price game." Presumably, the PlayStation 3 version of Ground Zeroes also will not have a Platinum Trophy.

The physical and digital versions of Ground Zeroes on PS4 will sell for $30.

The news is no doubt a disappointment for Ground Zeroes players hoping to add another Platinum Trophy--the highest rated achievement for PlayStation titles--to their warchests.

Ground Zeroes launches tomorrow, March 18, for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PS4. For more, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
