The Top 10: Toughest Platinums

Into the long morning hours you try to stay awake to get the final trophy and platinum the game. When that happens you feel that long road has ended but, new trials a wait for those trophy hunters. These 10 are one of the hardest platinum's you can get on the Playstation 3 to date. You cried, you waited, and you endure the long road to get that platinum, and these platinum's take skill and patience to get and so this is thegamershub top 10 toughest platinum's. (Culture, PS3)

Nice list.
In all honesty,
I don't even imagine to get the plats on these games.. with the exception of Demons Souls and CoD:W@W (since i do have the plat)

BUt the rest require hella dedication/grinding or skill.

I do salute people who have gotten wipeout HD Plat.. in my book.. thats the hardest one and you earn my respect.
(i had done 33% before the game shot me down and said YOU SUCK)

I'd give Resistance 2 a honorable mention. That 10k kills online trophy is an insane amount of grinding. I got up to about 1k and just gave up on it, would take way too much time for a multiplayer that IMO wasn't all that good. Please take note, IMO, that is just my opinion.

I like it
I haven't played a few of them (DJ Hero, Disgaea 3, or SFIV) but the rest I have. I'd disagree with Rock Band 2 as #2 though. I got the Platinum trophy, by myself with no help for the most part (aside from multiplayer trophies), and the only real hard trophy was the The Bladder of Steel. And even that was just more or less time consuming. I might even say Beatles Rock Band is more difficult just because of the vocal trophies

If we're talking about your average gamer, I'd put SOCOM Confrontation a lot higher. I'm 30 some hostage extracts away from the Platinum and I consider myself real good, so that would be tough for an average player. Wipeout HD and Warhawk are probably my top 2 for hardest.

But for the most part I'd say that list is spot on

Top 1% of the Week to receive the Valor 4 Gold Trophy in Killzone 2.

If Killzone 3 has this I won't attempt it. That was a strain on my life to get. And I lost a lot of sleep playing all damn day to get it.
nordberg  +   2124d ago
Great List
Wipeout HD (me too i give up at less than 50%) and Warhawk is the top 2 for hardest.

PS:The only game i remove from that list is rock band 2 and maybe i put GTA4 somewhere in this list instead.
bruddahmanmatt  +   2124d ago
Seeing as they've listed a few multiplats they might wanna add Battlefield: Bad Company, Far Cry 2 and Grand Theft Auto IV to the list while they're at it. I also heard that MK vs. DC Universe was a pain in the ass to get as well. As for PS3 exclusives that didn't make the list, Motorstorm: Pacific Rift comes to mind.
Maddens Raiders  +   2124d ago
I have a problem with the list -
I've got WipeoutHD, WarHawk, KILLZONE 2 in that order.

Motorstorm 2 is up there too, but that would be cheap for me to say since I have it.

You just named all the plats I failed at getting no matter how hard i tried.

Though Killzone 2 wasn't that hard. Got that game in August 09.. and platted it soon afterwards.
Maddens Raiders  +   2124d ago
^^^ I would love the salute skv -
but I don't deserve it. I just think that the article list is wrong and I have a plat in MS2:PR. You've got a plat in KILLZONE 2?

I salute you.
DarkTower805  +   2124d ago
@ A Cupcake for Gabe,
Top 1% in KZ2 was actually pretty easy. I got it putting in 3 hours/day for the week no problem, and that was back in Late March when the game was still played alot. Getting it now should not be an issue unless you're not very good.
WildArmed  +   2124d ago
oh sorry, i seem to have misunderstood. >.<
I was like.. OMFG someone actually has the plats and got too excited to read it all the way through..

And I do agree that Motorstorm PR is hard.. i spent over 30 hours trying to play that game while i was in D.C. with my cuzin, but alas.. I only could finish 2 races and qualified.

K2's hardest trophy would be elite..
2 parts had me stuck for an hour:
1) The bridge -- cross the bridge while the enemies spam the grenade launchers in ur face xD
2) first wave of Radec's palace. That was tooooo hard D: (took me 2 days for that one alone!)

Oh, even though the LAST GUY doesn't have plat.. that gayum was super hard D:

I dont think R2 deserves that. (trophy wise... i mean.. the game is great!)
The 10k kills is just a huge grind fest and the only trophy that is hard. While most games have a combination of grinding and skill-related trophies..
(Superhuman mode in R2 was easier than Hard =/ )

I'm currently clocked in at 6~7k kills and play the game every Christmas in D.C. Since my cuzin is a R2 addict

I never understood what the big deal was with the plat for KZ2. By far one of the easiest plats I've ever obtained. The Top 1% was a bit of a seven day grind to ensure that I made the cut before the ranks were reset on Sunday, but the single player campaign on Elite was not that hard. I still think that the obnoxious grenade spam I had to put up with while playing COD:WAW on Veteran difficulty was a bigger pain to deal with than Radec's goons.
Two-Face  +   2125d ago
Mirror's Edge should be on the list.

It's so frustrating to get 50 stars on time trials.

And if you want 100% you have to get 90 stars. It's possible, but very frustrating and time consuming.
Pillage05  +   2124d ago
Yeah, I gave up on Mirror's Edge platinum after like the second chapters time trial. But I did get Demon's Souls platinum...which isn't as hard as it is time consuming. roughly 120hours of playtime for myself. Although with everything I've learned about that game now, I'm pretty sure I could get the platinum in less than half the time now if I started over.
mrv321  +   2124d ago
Battlefield Bad Company IS imposssiple. Seriously it's impossible.
SpaceFox  +   2124d ago
I have that. Check out my trophy list. PSN: spacefox00

It's impossible without boosting. If you manage to get some friends together and find some empty rooms, you can get all those awards pretty quickly. And 10k kills just needs a lot of playtime.
Inferno  +   2124d ago
I only got Demon's Souls plat from that list, going for NGS 2 later on.
Redempteur  +   2124d ago
Incredible .!! i
i agree on that list !

but killzone 1% trophy is a little hard to get ...

lol you can't get plati on Rb2 with at least one friend ..

there are challenges that require 4 people to get ( you can't get 8x without 4 people )

you can't get 1mil point without at least 2 people ..

but i must say once you get friends to play with you , there is no problem at all to get this plati ..

it's actually quite fun

I got that Killzone 2 trophy the 2nd week the game was out...I think I only went to bed 2 nights that week just to make sure I'd get it. And some of the unlocks for certain badges used to be harder than they are now. Like the air turrets, used to be lucky if those things killed even one person in an entire match.
Redempteur  +   2124d ago
well sure the firsty two week that was easy but now ...

it's like the online trophies for SF4... it was easy the first weeks , now i wonder how you could have 10 victories in a row with all the ken swarming around ...

Ya know
Getting a platnium in Demon's Souls isn't that hard. The game itself is a pain but the trophies are very straight forward but time consuming.
Pillage05  +   2124d ago
and leveling your luck up to about 16 will cut your farming time in half...no joke.
table  +   2124d ago
No LBP or Motorstorm PR? Those games are crazy for to get the platinum.
LeonSKennedy4Life  +   2124d ago
LBP isn't terrible. MS:PR IS though. Holy crap!
postofficebuddy  +   2124d ago
I'm surprised at the lack of Guitar Hero Smash Hits on this list. Some of the trophies require some insane skill on both drums and guitar, like Bloody Feet and Raining Notes, or Hail the Rev (RIP). Not to mention getting 100% as a full band on a song.
OgTheClever  +   2124d ago
Mirror's Edge isn't too bad.
It's pretty easy easy 3 starring most of the trials. (OK, Atrium 1 pissed me off but the rest were a breeze.

EDIT: @ poster 2. This was supposed to be a reply but I accidentally selected the wrong option.

Did you see speedruns on Youtube?

I did not do that. I found my own ways to complete the time trials, and to beat the score, it was very difficult and time consuming.

But if you did watch other's speedruns, then it is a breeze. Because you know what way to go.
peeps  +   2124d ago
plenty of more games that could go in the list imo e.g. fight night round 4.

most of the trophies are straightforward but 3 are basically luck based meaning you could play the game for hours and hours and u don't even get the chance to earn the trophies:


which is basically beat the current world champion belt holder in each category. meaning you've first gotta be lucky enough to get a match with the number 1 player lol

i mean u could be amazing at the game, but if u never get matched up with the world number 1 u'll never be able to obtain these trophies and thus can't achieve plat.

it's trophies like that which are damn annoying. up there with the fact that u need a pseye to platinum burnout ffs lol
quen_gta2  +   2124d ago
I agree! Fight Night Round 4 is almost impossible to get the Platinum Trophy on. I looked at the Trophy list and saw that I would have to beat the number 1 person in the world for the championship belt. Yeah right! I will concentrate on getting my first Platinum Trophy on Ratchet and Clank.

Is there a list out there for the easiest Platinum Trophies?
badz149  +   2124d ago
list for easy platinum?
there's a lot of them! the lists are more or less the same but have 1 game in common! - Hannah Montana! wish you luck for that R&C platinum! I'm actually just 1 trophy away from platinum, that is the challenge mode but I think that might take a while because I'm shooting for all the skill points! more people need to play this game, it's such a great game! the best IMO for the whole series!
LeonSKennedy4Life  +   2124d ago
These guys obviously haven't played PAIN or Motorstorm: Pacific Rift.

I've YET to get a trophy on PAIN...and I play all the time!

Wipeout HD is impossible. It really is.
DeathsAmbition  +   2123d ago
Pain doesn't have a platinum but, thanks for feedback to anyone.
LeonSKennedy4Life  +   2124d ago
I don't have a single plat...just tons and tons of every other trophy.

I'm a level 10...with no platinums.

How sad is that?
quen_gta2  +   2124d ago
I am in the same boat as you. The closet I have been to getting a Platinum is in Ratchet in Clank. I still need to beat the game on hard and complete the game on challenge mode.

I think I will throw a party after I get that Platinum.

The first game I got a 1000 gamer score on the 360, was with King Kong. All you had to do was beat the game. If only they had made a PS3 version.
Judas  +   2124d ago
MLB The Show.... ARGH!!!!
NonApplicable  +   2124d ago
Killzone was def the hardest platinum I ever got. Basically I gave up a week of my life to get in top percent, and had developed tourettes during my elite run.

I whent for the wipout plat, but that Zico F***er had me doing like 6 barrel rolls and I still couldn't beat his time.

I tip my hat to you sir -
Simply completing this game on Elite is a trial by fire imho. I am with Rico against Radec, alone in Visari's Palace so far and all I have to do is kill him and it will be done. I have stepped away from the game for about 7 days now with hopes that I will remove my "mental block" once I turn it back on and attempt to finish him and eventually gut Visari. After that - everything seems pretty cursory.

This is the toughest/smartest a.i. I've experienced in an fps to date and I love it.
Aceluffy  +   2124d ago
I know Pixel Junk Monsters doesn't have platinum
But each one of that game's trophies are really a pain to get, especially the gold trophy. And now that the encore version is out with bunch of silvers, it's even harder
StylizedPlayer  +   2124d ago
They're not that tough. They're actually pretty fun. I got them all with lots of trial and error over 2 weeks
