With Final Fantasy XIII-2 releasing in North America in just a few more days, trophy hunters who are planning to Platinum it will be getting a reward.
I wish more games would do something similar. Free DLC for those who get platinum would be sweet but probably won't happen.
The only game I can really remember that rewarded a player for platnuming a game was Uncharted 2. If you did, you unlocked the Marco Polo skin for both single and multiplayer. I got it, and it was overpowered. You might wonder how a skin is overpowered.... think of it as a free 3rd perk.
The Perk of "MindF*ck"? haha.
inFAMOUS 2 Spelunker HD XIII (Theme like this one) Lost Planet 2 Spelunker Black Catherine in theory... (Outside of weird trophies the hard ones unlocked special endings/videos)
I'm going to platinum this just like I did XIII. also, XIII has the best trophy icons ever.
I gave up on XIII platinum after 10 hours of grinding those damn Adamantortoises and had only 2 of the required 6 Trapezohedrons.
I tried plating it, but equipping every weapon and accesory was just too hard.
Hard part was figuring out if I missed anything. I didn't know what item I was missing,so I was screwed. lol
Cheers to my fellow FF13 platinum friend. It was a laborious journey that I'm glad I took.
Not bad but at least we get something for our hardwork
This should be standard practice. Personally the effort and most importantly the time required to platinum a game without a reward is not worth it.
That depends on how you play the games. There's a little completionist side of me and I usually do most of the stuff anyway just for the feeling of truly completing a game, so getting platinum is just a nice small bonus for doing what I usually enjoy doing.
Personally I think thats a backwards way of looking at things. Sure it will get more people playing for the trophies, but the sense of accomplishment is it's own reward. Look at it like this... SSF/SF IV/MvC 3/UMvC 3 offers you titles/icons for completing the trials/challenges. Most people will never use 90% of them, but doing them all and getting the trophy offers more than the rewarded 40 or so digital titles ever could...
I heard this game is easy to platinum. someone on ps3trophies.org rated it a 3/10 in difficulty whihc is great! The person also got it in 54~ hours which is almost half the time it took me to get plat on FF13...
wow really 54? that's great! that's like how long it took to finish XII
Another plat will be added to my list :) and im going to level up whoo!
