Rejoice! PlayStation Trophy Cap Raised!

Does NOT affect me.

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.

  1. I was unaware there was a cap. I too remember getting my first trophy, good times. I used to be a trophy hunter, but I’ve since stopped, and if one comes up, then great, but I no longer dedicate vast amounts of time to it.

  2. that’ll be handy for me.
    in about 20 years. O_O

  3. I’m a lvl 13 with 12 Plat, and I thought I was pretty high. Sure, everyday i come accross someone who is higher lvl, but 50? O.O

  4. Man those guys must have so much fun playing their games.

  5. My first trophy was in Midnight Club LA.

    I LOVE the Trophy achieved popup and tune, soo much more satisfying then getting a “G” -_-

  6. Skibadee does a fantastic job! Top man.

    Sony must have put it up to 50 thinking that it was unachievable, surely no-one has the will/spare time to do it… Oh, don’t underestimate the nerds!

  7. Didn’t know there was a cap anyway. I got nearly 2000 Trophies. But i am trying to not go for them now. If i get 1 then so be it LoL

  8. I walked to far with Lara to go back, otherwise that would be my first and only Platinum…

    And you are right.. I’m still not playing MGS4 because of the lack of Trophies.. and I will also not get tot level 50 any time soon..

    p.s. the Link to your first Trophy does not show any pictures for me.. 404 on this file for example: http://www.thesixthaxis.com/images/uploads/184.jpg

  9. Wow, that’s a lot of trophies. I still say I’m pretty happy with my level 12 and five platinums.

  10. thanks nofi :)
