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. 300 platinums! Jeez, I guess they never understood the phrase “quality over quantity”. IMO playing games just for trophies is redundant, especially since alot of platinums are earned by following some internet guide instead of actually playing the game. I’d rather enjoy what I play, instead of turning game playing into some kind of twisted RPG trophy grind. But, oh well, to each their own.

  2. The Hakoom account is worked on by multiple players, most playing offline and then synching at different times which basically sums up how I feel about trophies, it’s mostly online willy waving.

    Fair play to the people who enjoy that kind of thing but I refuse to be caught up in it myself as I won’t be lead to play a game in a way I won’t enjoy just to attain a virtual reward.

    If my trophy whoring mate tells me one more time that I’m 5 trophies of a platinum in Burnout Paradise I will slap him.

    • Hey Bear, you are only 5 trophies of a platinum in Burnout Paradise!

      • Nooooooooooooooooooooooo!

      • That should have been: *slaaaaaaaaaaaaap*

  3. i think my first trophy was burnout paradise

  4. I might reach level 50 in about five years! LOL! :D

    Now that is what I call long-term trophy planning! LOL! :D
