In its current form, GamerDNA can pull in all of the trophies that you gain in PS3 games. This means if you gain a trophy in a game that has them, gamerDNA will pick the trophy up and then update your gamerDNA.

For starters, please make sure you have your PSN name in your gamerDNA:

GamerDNA *only* supports Trophies, so we cannot detect when you play a game (like we do on other networks), but we can only detect when you played a game if you got a Trophy in it.

To sync your Trophies with gamerDNA, you need to look at your Trophies while using your PS3 (load up the Cross Media Bar -- aka XMB -- and look at your trophies under the Game section). This will sync your trophies, which enables gamerDNA to get the data to update your profile.

GamerDNA pulls your trophies every night, then updates your profile in the morning. You can view the trophies in the Game Activity that was created, or view them on your game page for the game that the trophies were attained within.

Unfortunately we just have trophy data right now, but eventually we hope to be able to update your account when you just play a game. For now, though, this is the best we can do. Once we get more data, we'll do even more!
