For most, PlayStation Trophies are a fun, additive element to gaming that often promotes extraordinary life out of titles that perhaps you might not stick with for as long were it not for the virtual silverware. And in some cases: sales of games that you wouldn’t touch with a bargepole.
Indeed, our PlayStation Trophy List is still one of the most popular pages on the site, thanks to the tirelessly hard working Skibadee keeping everything up to date. Likewise, our Trophy Leaderboard has our regulars battling it out for top spot every day.
But few take it as seriously as ‘Hakoom’, who has managed to bag almost 300 Platinum trophies (15,662 in total), and ‘Duck360’ with nearly 320 Platinums (15,868 in total) who recently burst past the previous level cap of 50. Yes, that’s right, there was a cap.
I’ll never get there, I simply don’t have the time or the skill, but hats off to these two, who proved that Sony have either upped or removed the limit on the level you can achieve. What that new limit, if indeed there is one, is set to we’ll no doubt see in due course.
Ah, I still remember my first trophy.
