Hakoom, one of the more prolific and visible trophy hunters in the PlayStation Network, just broke through to level 100—a rank that requires a user to win some 30,000 trophies.
Level 13 for me, I only play a game all the way through to platinum if I really enjoy it or if I'm so close I might as well. I have 5 platinum to my name so far and I only had to push myself to play games I was enjoying anyhow. I'd love to platinum Gran turismo 5 but I'm just not that good and I just don't have that time.
Tried to platinum GT5, completed every special event except GT5 Grand Tour Eiger Nordwand. Finger crossed and hopefully one day I'll beat it.
level 19 and 36platinums i haven't got platinums for like 2 years i don't even remember what my last one was.. TOO many games to play at once.
jaw on floor
42 platinums here. I got guys on my buddy list with 150+ platinums. If you reach level 100 on PSN that is proof that you have no life and no girlfriend/wife. Seriously, I think I play too much, let alone those people.
level 13, not a single platinum :X never hunted a single trophy, i just play games through and whatever i got i got, moved on to the next game :/ collecting them kinda geeky imo
Level 12, not in the least interested in trophies, I may play a game once or twice. But there is no way I am going around looking for stuff that does not effect the overall story. Maybe if they gave you say £3 for a platinum and you could put that towards a game on PSN, that might change my mind towards trophies.
I don't have any platinum trophies. If I collect some along the way, that's cool but I don't usually go out of my way to get any.
I have, games like Fallout 3 need that platinum, I wanted to get as much out of that game as I could, same goes for Demon'/Dark Souls, I just wanted to keep on playing Mafia 2 on the other hand doesn't, I only need one trophy to platinum that, no way am I prepared to drive around the entire city looking for wanted posters (even with a guide) I'd like to platinum Terraria, but i'm not going to spend countless hours farming the 6 pets you can get in the game
Same. Trophies has little meaning to me, I'm not competitive either. that's why I rarely touch multiplayer of any game.
I wonder what level 100 would be equivalent too when compared with Xbox achievements. I would be interested to know what my 103k gamerscore would be in trophy level.
103,000 is equal to level 22 - 87%. I can't be bothered to calculate level 100.
How do you know that? What the calculation?
It's in the story: "As Hakoom pointed out on Twitter, 180 points are given for a platinum trophy (won by earning all trophies offered by a game), 90 for each gold trophy, 30 for a silver and 15 for a bronze. It takes 880,000 points to get to level 100. Hakoom says it took 1,900 days—more than five years—for him to pull this off. That’s a lot of gaming." So with point values: 880,000 Points. This is still not a direct 1-to-1 comparison as Xbox doesn't have Platinums; so max Gamerscore of one game does not always equate to max Trophy value (including the Platinum) of the same game on the PS3/PS4. This is more of a general guideline.
So close to platinuming BF4 on PS4, but getting the M1911 is hard work...
I know one guy who got the BF4 platinum which is weird considering everyone saying the game is unplayable online. I got the Resogun platinum myself. PSN:ErazerSe7en if you want to check.
Level 6 :(
Don't give up!
You can do it, I know you can, just believe in yourself
Level 17 15 platinums, the last one was Guacamelee! Hopefully I'll get all trophies in Gran Turismo 6 when it arrives this week.
Level 28 with 66 platinums. http://psnprofiles.com/skat...
WTF i thought i was high up with lv 16
I'm a lvl 100 Husband and Father of 2 !!! Nintendo needs to get a Achievement/Trophy system, Adds replay value to the game.
What is your ID?
Proof? Not for the level but for having 2 kids
You must be high up there on the candidates for father of the year.
Going for that Platinum !!!
someone has way to much time in their hands.
Damn, and I'm still Level 13. Think I have 7(?) platinums, last I checked? There was a time when I was actively striving for trophies, back when Sony was making mentions of their upcoming "PS Rewards" program, which they ended up canning anyway... They eventually rolled said program out in a beta/test phase, but due to "feedback" they opted to shelve it. I still have the t-shirt they sent me for participating in it :3.
How many time is enough for hakoom article?
Level 17 working on platinum 30. Was considering retiring the platinum biz due to massive backlogs and interests outside of my ps3.
I have never tried to get a trophy or achievement in any system or game other than World of Warcraft, which I no longer play (but did for 5-6 years). I like to enjoy games at my own pace and there are just too many great games out there to be bogged down in a chase for what amounts to nothing. They are nice to get and add a tiny bit of enjoyment along the way, but *in my opinion*, they are not worth hunting and stressing about outside of regular game enjoyment.
I'm level 15 with 9 plats and I thought I was high up :( I usually don't plat a game unless I enjoy the game. I play through a game without caring about the trophies, then afterwards, if i really enjoyed it and want to play through it again, I check the trophies to see if plat is obtainable without having to stop enjoying what I love. If I have time I start trophy hunting.
