I'm fine if the PS4 has backwards compatibility up to the PS3(being able to play PS2 and PS1 games doesn't matter to me really since I don't own the games anymore).
Also a better PS store it's kinda crappy now(with a better update time on Tuesday meaning not like 6 pm for me in Toronto). I hope that the next Playstation has a way lower rate of failing on the consumer or none at all(i.e YLOD or the blinking red light that happens after disc game freezes and shuts down the console).
Definitely agree on the store factor. It's terribly slow as it is now. That would hopefully fix with new hardware.
As for syncing, I agree. Having them sync in real time would be more logical. In all seriousness, such minute data should not take that long to update. Vita's trophy system is a breath of fresh air, and that's on a handheld.
Also, just an FYI in case you weren't aware, you can turn off syncing by hitting Triangle on your trophy icon in the XMB. I turn mine offline until I'm done playing, then I turn it back online and sync now and then. It's important to sync now and then, but I find it nice not having to sync every time I want to check trophy status.

A game should be replayed for its own qualities, not because there's something meaningless waiting for them at the end of the road.
I don't think that will ever happen unfortunately for your sake. It's major draw for developers is that it keeps a large group of gamers from beating a game just to immediately sell it to Gamestop. Just like every game has to have DLC and Multiplayer. It's replay value to prevent used sales.
I personally don't mind trophies. Most the time I just ignore them as they don't break the game to not touch them. Only time I touch them is when I really enjoy a game. It just encourages me to seek out things I may never have thought of trying. Case in point, Persona 4 Golden. I beat, and would have probably put it down for another game. But seeking after the SLink trophy, I ended up discovering some pretty significant story and experiences I missed the first time around.
I would however like companies to make Trophies that you enjoy seeking out. Like trying out something different, not massive timewasters that require you to spend stupid amounts of time for no reward. Like Tales of Graces f trophy for getting all battle trophies.. Or Persona 4 Golden's trigger all Rise's dungeon comments.
