Top 5 Hardest PS3 Trophies

Gamezone writes: All PlayStation 3 games now released include trophy support, as well as the more popular older titles having trophies integrated as well. While many of the aforementioned titles feature trophies that can be achieved with almost no skills, certain titles, inevitably, are notorious for their painstakingly difficult trophies. We take a look at the top 5 hardest PS3 trophies to acquire. (Call of Duty: World at War, Killzone 2, PS3, Super Stardust HD)

demons/dark souls.
Hisiru  +   1323d ago
It's not hard, it just takes time.
Gaming101  +   1323d ago
Crappy list.... I mean Killzone 2? Really? Beating it on hard was easy - playing to get those annoying online trophies was teh biggest pain in the ass of life. Same with every other game with online trophies - like Twisted Metal, being #1 in the world for a bronze trophy? Really?
jsslifelike  +   1322d ago
Why couldn't all of them be on one page?? Cheap, click-grabbing crap.
brbobcat  +   1322d ago

Seriously, the effort required to click to the next page is just way too hard on my index finger.
admiralvic  +   1323d ago
Try most over rated trophies. Demon Souls always had co op, the ability to level out of problems, tons of build guides, etc. Everything after beating it once is just a grind more or less and could be accomplished by someone dropping it on the floor. So Demon Souls is really no different than any other game, especially when you consider roughly 60% beat the games story once. (thats the percent on most trophy sites)

Did anyone play Resistance 2 there was a trophy that required you to get 10'000 KILLS ON THE MULTIPLAYER!!!!!!!
EeJLP-  +   1323d ago
That's time, not hard..

..and Bad Company has a 10002 kills trophy and you get less kills per time as far as I can remember. Not 100% sure if it does take longer, but either way time is time, not hard.

Which was a fun grind, and not hard at all ;)
egidem  +   1323d ago
Like Hisiru said, this is also not hard. It just takes time. I frankly hate these trophies where you are forced to grind for hours.

Personally I dislike online trophies for various reasons - community might be dead by the time you pick up the game or servers might no longer be working (like LoTR Conquest). They should be implemented in to be simpler (like the way ND did in Uncharted 2, excluding the DLC trophies).
Soldierone  +   1323d ago
Yeah I loved that trophy, too bad trophy whores didn't want to put the effort in to get it. Instead they whine and pout about it so Insomniac doesn't do it again.....and instead puts something easy to get.

I agree that online trophies suck at times when communities died. However you are EARNING a trophy so why do you not want to EARN it? Instead people want to be handed free trophies for doing basic things....

the 10,000 kills trophy was FUN FUN FUN to x3 !! I miss it, sometimes i want to pop in Resistance 2 to play ... but then i see my plat trophy and im like ... dam i wish i hadnt gotten those 10,000 kills so i could still have a goal to shoot for ...
pixelsword  +   1322d ago
It is hard when you have to play ranked games to get those kills, and people hardly play the ranked games, and those ranked games have a low kill count PLUS the matches are only one round.

You could select a rank game ten times, and three or four out of those ten you will get a match, and out of those three or four maybe one once in a while will be full.

My friend blew me away in terms of playing online and in ranked games, but he's not even near getting that trophy. If you actually have it, I don't know if that's the only game you have or if you're strapped to your PS3, but dang, that's dedication that borders an unhealthy obsession.
Trebius51  +   1322d ago
lol yeah man i got the game at launch, and i played it religiously for a while. I stoppef playing for about a year then ipcked it up again, then dropped it, then picked it up again, and eventually got the trophy. Thankfully the servers were still pretty decently stocked when i was on and off the game. The only plat trophies i have are Uncharteds, Resistance 2, and resistance 3. I might have 1 or 2 others but the resistance 2 plat was definitely the most time consuming.
PshycoNinja  +   1323d ago
I got the platinum for Killzone 2 & 3...... yeah.
cpayne93  +   1323d ago
Naw Demon's Souls was the only game I decided to platinum so far. Loved every minute of it, trophies weren't that hard, you just had to unlock everything in the game. I honestly wanted to do that irregardless of the trophies.
pixelsword  +   1322d ago
Me too until my PS3 broke, I lost everything. I still have the trophies, but my game is gone if I get my PS3 repaired through Sony. I still have it and I might fix it myself, but after that, I didn't even think to get Dark Souls because of my PS3 repeatedly breaking.
Maddens Raiders  +   1322d ago
GT 5 -
Sebastian Vettel and the GT5 Plat overall. Not easy at all or attainable by 98% of the gaming public.
avengers1978  +   1322d ago
I honestly believe that if anyone takes the time you can pretty much get any off line trophy. Its the multiplayer and co-op ones that get me.
Be ranked #1 in the world. Have a team do this, get so many people to download something you've done(LBP, MNR)
Trophies were you are not relying on your own skills, but skills of other people. That's the one's I don't like... Then again I hardly take the time to get every trophy in every game I play... I play far to many games, and trade in games on a regular basis... Just not enough time and money.

That would be cool if their was an option to turn off the Trophy prompts. Especially for the first time through the game. Can be immersion breaking.
Then if you want to collect the rest of the trophies turn the prompts back on and earn them.
egidem  +   1323d ago
pixelsword  +   1322d ago
What he's saying is that people want to make a game that gets you into the story and athomsphere, but then you get a "ding! You've collected a treasure!" prompt splattered all over the cut-scene.
Qrphe  +   1323d ago
People, stop aknowledging the "arguments" of people like kinganon. It's obvious he's trying to just make people mad craving for reactions or just plainly being silly. Don't waste your time next time please.
admiralvic  +   1323d ago
I love how every list says the same games, but they're usually just more popular games that people hear about more often.

Lost Planet 2 requires getting #1 in the world on a leaderboard (50 possible, but none were reset ever) and 499 other tasks.

Vanquish had Tactical Challenge #6 which people for a LONG time claimed was impossible or nearly impossible.

Beating Hard Corps without dying is an insane feat that takes countless retries to memorize the game enough to even consider it possible.

Beating the true boss in any Gundemonium game is insane, especially when you consider the vast majority can't even GET to the fight.

These are just some tasks off the top of my head that were extremely difficult. Far more so than anything listed here. Come on people, make an original list once in a while...
avengers1978  +   1322d ago
super star dust 10 times multipler tropht was hard
dragon_rocks  +   1323d ago
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 and Sonic Unleashed are also very very hard to Platinum.
InTheLab  +   1323d ago
For whatever reason, I absolutely stink at Dead Space. So when asked to complete a 10hr+ game without saving more than 3 oh man...screw that.
Ser  +   1323d ago
Haha, now that one was actually pretty difficult.
Philoctetes  +   1323d ago
That was honestly one my favorite trophies ever. Dead Space 2 wasn't particularly hard, even in Hardcore mode, but the pressure to not screw up after 90 minutes of meticulously playing your way up to a key scene really made it into an entirely different game. This was way WAY better than your standard "Get X kills with Y weapon" trophy. It brilliantly took the game a couple steps toward its survival horror roots.

Too bad they decided to go and ruin it all with co-op in DS3.
wsoutlaw87  +   1323d ago
I was thinking the exact same thing. There was also a fight night game that required you to hold the champion belt on line, thats insane. Their list is stupid, beating games on hard isnt that hard definatly not cod
sashimi  +   1323d ago
not really difficult, more of annoying since the only variables were the random spawns in certain areas, the rest are ezmode(i plasma cutter through most of the game until the end)
pixelsword  +   1322d ago
"So when asked to complete a 10hr+ game without saving more than 3 oh man...screw that"

No kidding; what am I, twelve? A lot of people don't have time to sit down and play games for hours on end, and if they have to go through something like that, it kinda takes the air out playing the game who wants to platinum-out a game.
Run_bare  +   1322d ago
Hahaha.. Yeah I agree, that's the only trophy left for Dead Space and I don't bother with it.
mayberry  +   1323d ago
Im glad "wipeout hd" made the list! what a hardcore game that is! Also Killzone 2! I would've gone for the "platinum", but had to be on top of the online leaderboards to get it! got my platinum on kz3 though!
Tru_Blu  +   1323d ago
Excactly, being in the top 1% for the week is more of a bitch then beating it on hard. Only real pain in the ass on hard was the Radec fight.
Neo-Axl  +   1323d ago
Not sure if I agree, I unlocked the trophy during the first week of Killzone 2's release, The longer you spent playing the game online within a week, puts your chances of getting in the top 1% by far, more of a time consumer than a pain.
Insomnia_84  +   1323d ago
The Radec fight is the easiest boss fight ever! Before the fight you have to kill a bunch of soldiers first, right? ONE of them has a flamethrower, burn him with that and watch him die as he disappears from one place to another! That's how I beat him the last time to get that Platinum. I don't know if it is/was a glitch or not, all I know is that I killed that mthrfckr on the hardest difficulty lol
JDcg  +   1323d ago
The final boss fight in Uncharted 2 on the highest difficulty. I swear, that was the most accurate shotgun I have ever seen. Not to mention the 5, what seem to be, heat seeking grenades ever three seconds. I know there was a cheat for it but of course I did not find that out until I already beat it! LOL
2pacalypsenow  +   1323d ago
I have #5 (Achievement) most anoying one , COD W@W frag edition
JasonBloodbourne  +   1323d ago
Doesn't space marine have a get 40000 kills trophy? That's a hard one to get if your not committed.
Ultr  +   1323d ago
haha funny, cuz Elite difficulty on Killzone 2 is the only trophy I have on this list! damn I died like 400times in one playthrough! totally worth it, such A GREAT GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!
homer  +   1323d ago
What about the trophy in UFC where you literally have to be the top ranked player in the world?
ExCest  +   1323d ago
Is that real? That's like impossihard. I would commend the man/woman who has that trophy.
admiralvic  +   1322d ago
A few games had tasks like this. Lost Planet 2 had it as a title, which was required for the get every title trophy. Fight Night Round 3 required you to get all the belts, etc.
Heavenly King  +   1323d ago
Ninja Gaiden Sigma PLUS
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
Ninja Gaiden 3
Killzone 2
Warhammer 40k: Space Marine
Mr_Kuwabara  +   1323d ago
I have WaW Plat, it honestly wasn't that hard. Annoying because the enemy throws grenades like mad men, but not that difficult,

Now, the most annoying, time consuming trophy I've ever gotten has had to be Auf Wierdessen Petrocvich trophy from GTAIV. You know the online races, you had to pass all of them, ALL, finish in first place, and because of the PS3 version crappy servers, it did not save older wins. So you essentially have to pass them all at once. From heli, boat races, and regular car races, you had to finish them all, at once.

I remember doing this with an online buddy and it was horrible. Especially when you think you finish them all and you have one missing and you have no clue which one that is.

And to put the final nail in the coffin, it is a Bronze trophy.
SAE  +   1323d ago
Well , ca you get world at war platinum in one day ?. To be specifc less then 12 hours

I did it :)
acemonkey  +   1323d ago
Max payne 3 In my shadows i believe its called beat the game in New York City Minute Hardcore Mode...for those who have this i salute u
SAE  +   1323d ago
I will get it after i complete it on hardcore mode then go to new york city , its really annoying to complete a game 5 times to get platinum unless you have the mode for it
Old school
New york city minute
New york city minute hardcore

Just looking at these is tiring , i would beated the one who thought of this , they should have put the hardest mode availble and if I win it i get all the other trophies with it

Dont forget about the grinds >.<
jessupj  +   1323d ago
I managed to beat NYM HC on my 7th try.

I was tripping out like a squirrel on steroids on the last boss where you can die instantly from a grenade, but gosh that felt good when I got it.

Now I just need to grind the loooong road to level 50. Going to take 70 hours just for that.
Outsider-G  +   1323d ago
You can earn XP in arcade mode. Chapter 4, Checkpoint one can get you 1000XP every 3 minutes. Cuts the 70 hours into 30 hours but it gets really repetitive so it's best to switch to multiplayer every now and then. Make sure you're online as well or it won't sync to the servers.
Outsider-G  +   1323d ago
Definitely a hard trophy to get. I'm glad I got it.
sypher  +   1323d ago
Challenge #6 on Vanquish was always the bane of my existence. Just gave up in the end, spent a week straight on it. I commend those who have accomplished the feat.
slixshot  +   1323d ago
*Bows* Thank you, thank you very much :D Seriously, that platinum is one of the greatest accomplishments in my gaming life.
jessupj  +   1323d ago
Mine too. I came very close though.

I will come back to it soon though, and I WILL get it.

If I can complete NYM HC in Max payne 3, I can do this.
Ryo-Hazuki  +   1323d ago
Yep Vanquish Challenge #6 is ridiculously hard. Took me many tries of frustration but eventually I beat it. It felt so gratifying completing it and I can gladly say I have a platinum in Vanquish.

Heroic Survivor is the most difficult Trophy Ive got.
Its very difficult, but In fact I believe there is one more KZ2 trophy that is even harder!

Its a trophy you get if you are amongst the top 1%(?) online players for a longer period of time... 1 week, or something.

There is always a lot of better guys out there so that trohpy is just ridiculous! Im not even going to try anytime soon...

jessupj  +   1323d ago
I thought that too, but I just picked a week to get it then did nothing except play the online for a week.

Managed to get 17th in the world for that week. I couldn't believe I was that high up the leader board, I had to keep looking at it :P
MacUser1986  +   1323d ago
Call of Duty WAW is brutal on Veteran and took me almost three years because I had to take varies breaks so I wouldn't bash my controller.
Philoctetes  +   1323d ago
One plantinum that never comes up in these discussions, but probably deserves mention at least, is Motorstorm: Pacific Rift. Finishing first in all the offline races is hard as hell considering that the AI racers blatantly cheat during the last dozen or so events. Then you have to beat developer times in 100+ time trials, most of which are extremely easy but a few are insanely hard and will require 25+ attempts each, at least.

Then you have the online trophies. This is the only game I've ever played where you LOSE rank for bad outcomes, which made getting Legend rank seriously nerve-racking. And of course, if you don't get the "win three races in a row" trophy early on, you're not getting it period once you start getting matched against better players.

That's seriously the only platinum trophy I have (out of 16) that I'd say I'm kind of proud of. Demon's Souls and Arkham City certainly had their moments, but MS:PR was just a really hard platinum.
badz149  +   1322d ago
PR definitely deserve a mention
I gave up on Platinum long ago and moved on to Apocalypse although I still play it time after time for some challenge! man...those level 7 and 8 AIs are INSANE!

Am I the only one who found CoD1 on veteran a hell of a lot harder than W@W?
No health packs, no regen, die in 2 shots. You have to checkpoint hop and know where every single enemy is and kill them all before you get shot.
franwex  +   1323d ago
Battlefield Bad Company 2. The one you had to stab one of your friend 5 times to get their dog tags! I did it without cheating! It was a bitch, and it took a looong time. I was hoping the game was still popular with my friends long enough for me to get!
sypher  +   1322d ago
Yeh me too. Funny because my friends had no idea why I was knifing them all the time. My last trophy was actually the demolition one.
franwex  +   1322d ago
Haha! That was my last trophy too!
Soldierone  +   1323d ago
Call of Duty is on the list.....really?
Then the Rockband trophy "you can play it on any difficulty" well there goes the challenge....

The only one that is somewhat challenging is Wipeout thanks to certain times on different tracks you have to beat....I've come to trophies where after trying I went "screw it" because they were literally HARD. Grinding does not = being hard....

I absolutely hate online trophies and playing with friends trophies. What if the online is dead? Its too hard to get anywhere near the top percent overall? Or my friends have no interest in the game? Then im screwed.....
