Breaking: PSN's Highest Trophy Level Reached at Level 100

"I discovered something on the worldwide trophy leaderboards that wasn’t there yesterday, two PSN users (BIELERIC and Pockidrive) have hit level 100, and they are both at 1% in that level with one person having several hundred more “trophy points” then the other person also at level 100"

I guess if future versions of their console and handheld are going to use trophies they are going to need to up the cap for the sake of those trophy hunters like these ones.

guitarded771675d ago

They will... before reading the article, I was thinking about when it was 50 and they raised the cap. I'm sure the PS4 will just further extend the trophy cap. I was delighted to get my 3,000th trophy this weekend... these guys are way more intense than I am.

killcycle1675d ago

I don't think they should raise the cap.
Let these trophy whores get some fresh air instead.

Makes sense to me, what you guys think?

Sorrow241675d ago

Just got my 3,000th last week! :D

BISHOP-BRASIL1675d ago

I had almost 2000 on my old account (lost during the outtage, unvalid e-mail, my own fault) and just past 1000 on my new one this week... Not that I'm a real trophy whore, I guess I'm just a completionist when the games goes well with my taste, but still those 3000 trophies statements make me envy! Level 100 is just ridiculous though...

NukaCola1675d ago

Strange these two names just pop up like this. I was under the impression that the #1 guys was HAKOOM. The next guy was really far behind by over 50 platinums. I smell something fishy here.

joab7771675d ago

I don't know if these two are like the other guy who has 300 plays or my friend who has well over 200 But they get help from others and load them on. They have plays from rpgs, online games, and difficult games that take awhile and they would need to average a plat ever 4-5 with no break for years. Even though only a few are this high, if they plan on bringing it to ps4, they have to raise it. just make it 1000 or infinite. If these guys wanna spend every waking hours chasing these trophies, be my guest. I have found that most x it sucks the fun out. I have 30 + on ps3 and 20 or so on Xbox and use them as a vague guide but I stopped going to any length to get them.And rpgs, which are my favorite genre take awhile, so it's either enjoy these games or take part in an arbitrary competition that yields no rewards.

irepbtown1675d ago (Edited 1675d ago )

Man, I'm only on 800 or so. And I have NO platinums... woops.

Seriously though, I just cannot get a platinum for a game. The closest I got was MW2 with around 90%+ completion. I just get lazy as I near that all important Platinum. Games like Infamous I tried really hard but just stopped.

I think it should be limitless. Or if there is a limit, maybe a reward for reaching a certain stage. E.G.) Reach lvl 10, you get a free PS One classic. Reach lvl 20, free voucher, reach lvl 30 free game from PS+ etc etc.
So as you get more trophies, the reward is better.

I think Xbox currently do it with achievements however they get points. This is something Sony could implement in PSN. Make it worth while reaching a higher lvl. Maybe even give rewards for the amount of platinums people get.

Heck I should work for Sony :D

DeadlyFire1675d ago

I am only at 442 trophies.

@irepbtown
I love that idea. Don't know if Sony would do it, but it would inspire more people to play more games. One would think.

Jaces1675d ago

I've taken a break from trophy hunting for a couple months but lately I've found myself going out of my way to obtain that Platinum. It's a hard habit to break but that "ding" is so dammed addicting.

Glad to announce I've broken 4,000 with 58 Platinums. :D

KidBroSweets21674d ago

No need to raise the trophy cap. If they are just reaching the cap at the end of the PS3's era and there's only two people to do it than there's really no reason to. I bet 70% of people have no more than level 20

I could be wrong but doesn't Vita have a separate count?

I'd imagine they'd do the same for PS4 if that is the case.

fabod861675d ago

Nop. The total amount of trophies is not splitted.

BlindMango1675d ago

PSVita and PS3 both pour into the same trophy level, and I am 99.99% sure that the PS4 will too based on just looking at how the trophy system works

guitarded771675d ago

Yeah, trophies are designed around the PlayStation Network, so they can have trophies on any future consoles linked to your profile. There is some talk about PlayStation Mobile games having trophies too.

StraightPath1675d ago

Its time to come out of their basements and see the sun outside. Worthless and time wasting.

xXBlondieVanHarlowXx1675d ago (Edited 1675d ago )

Your one bubble is worthless and time wasting. Not sure why it bothers some people that these gamers spend "their" every waking moment gaming. It's "THEIR" time after all.

OMFG!!!

insomnium21675d ago

@ blondie

I get what you are saying but it IS a waste of life for someone to play games this much. It cannot be healthy. I think playing this much causes more problems than solves.

On a sidenote I would really want to NOT have a life for a week or two. My backlog is miles long. I've been working on my Doom 3 BFG collection (don't know if I'll ever plat it though) for weeks and I'm not even through Doom 2 yet. Still Doom 3 to go. My gaming time is patheticly small atm.

Mio1675d ago

The 2 Guys BIELERIC and Pockidrive arent Trophy Hunters, they are Trophy Hackers. Using Jailbreak PS3 and also paying other ppl to plat Games for them.
No1 reached Level 100 legally by now, and hopefully Sony will bann those Guys soon, who ruin the Trophy System!!! This is unfair for ppl who playing honestly and legit.

Dark_Overlord1675d ago

BIELRERIC isn't a trophy hacker (he's on the clean leaderboard, this article links to the one that adds cheaters in too), though I totally agree he did not do them all himself (Really don't understand the point of not earning it yourself).

princejb1341675d ago

Idk how you would assume he didn't do it legit unless you know him personally
Maybe they are hackers maybe not
But theirs no way to find out u less Sony bans them with proof of them hacking

Mio1675d ago

Pockidrive you can clearly see that he using a Jailbreak PS3, its not possible to archive 300 Plats in few weeks.

And Bieleric i know 100% that he pay people to get him Platinums, few of them also hacked some Plats.

Both of them didnt archieve legit.

The headline should be "2 Hackers reached Level 100"

mauleriscool1675d ago (Edited 1675d ago )

@Dark_Overlord Both BIELERIC and Pockidrive have cheated for Socom Confrontation trophies. Earning them all in the same day under 30 minutes from first trophy to platinum.

Dark_Overlord1673d ago

@mauleriscool

Technically the SOCOM platinum isn't classed as cheating (Weird I know) its a bug in the game that allows this and not a trophy hacked save. A glitch like this is also possible on the BUZZ game, both are accepted as legit ways to get the plat as the saves have not been altered.

Why is there a trophy cap at all?

LordHiggens1675d ago

Because...I play games a lot and I'm only at level 16...level 100 is ridiculous as far as I'm concerned.

the worst1675d ago (Edited 1675d ago )

Fu$k this BS Network
does nothing but bash ps3
nit-picking a$$ site

but M$ and Apple cant do no wrong
GTFOOH

IAmLee1675d ago

That's one sad, lonely gamer.

mi_titan271675d ago

Lets just say they were collecting trophies for 7yrs, w/ 450 platinums, thats roughly beating 65 games a yr. so he completes on avg. one or more game a week?

Some people have too much time on their hands.

Enemy1675d ago (Edited 1675d ago )

You post on internet forums. What makes you any different?

Edit: I see no difference at all, honestly. Some people put their time into gaming, others put equal hours into posting comments/reading relevant gaming news. Either way, both hobbies are gaming related.

MidnytRain1675d ago

WTF? One takes SIGNIFICANTLY more time than the other. Come on, man...

Shadow Flare1675d ago

Spending 20 seconds writing a comment on a website that has news about a hobby which interests us is rather different to these people that spend years trophy whoring. Even renting games just for easy trophies and playing games JUST to get every trophy

I'm firmly in the camp of "that isn't impressive, that's pathetic"
