A gamer named Hakoom shows how he achieved 350 platinum trophies legit on the PlayStation 3
nice video, keep up the work!
Dang, this guy is dedicated.
Hakoom's throne is pretty much secured... I don't see anyone taking this guy down. I'm guessing all he does is play video games... and drink Monster energy drink. Sony should give him a free PS4 at launch for having the most trophies. @Dante112(below) That's been happening a lot to me too lately, and I get the "Hmmm something went wrong" message.
He's numbers 3 in the world according to this. http://www.yourgamercards.n... he's also got 20 more platinums after this video, going by the 350 number.
@adorie Hmmm... guess so. These guys got crazy trophies. Wonder how many are individual gamers and how many are team gamers.
He got the platinum for Happy Feet 2, why would you do it to yourself? Theres not too much skill in gettin a trophy, obviously theres games that do require skill but the vast majority of games dont, you just need time, and this dude must hav loads of it and no women/kids to spend it with, i kinda feel sorry for him My 16 platinums (soon to be 19) will do just fine, theres no way ill play a game just for the sake of it
I guarantee that he used in game glitches as much as possible for any games that had them. While all the trophies are legitimate, it doesn't mean he actually put in all the work for every single game. Demon's Souls for instance has a duplication glitch that can get you the Platinum very quickly.
Wth, double post again? But I'll say this, the only games I've ever gotten a platinum trophy on was Heavy Rain, Uc2, Uc3, and Fight Night.
Yeah that dude's crazy good...
Try crazy dedicated... While I can't speak for his skills in every game, I did face him for a few rounds in Bioshock 2. He could hardly maintain a 1:1 Kill to Death ration, so I would wager hes just insanely dedicated and nothing more. I am sure I will get tons of disagrees for this, but I would love for him to prove me wrong.
Eh, maybe he's just not good at shooters? I'm decent at shooters, but give me an RPG and I'll tear it up in every way possible lol. XD Still, you might be right, in either case you HAVE to have some amazing dedication to get all those trophies. Also, you need money, LOTS and LOTS of money...
Sigh~ I wish I caught my ratio spelling error >< @ Snookies12 All im saying is that is the only time I actually encountered him. It could have been someone else playing, it could have been he was using the wrong guns, it could have been a lot of things, but in the end I wasn't too impressed by what I saw. Like I said there could be a number of things, though plenty of people can do these hard tasks. Thus I don't see why people see Hakooom as something of a gaming god. More than likely he is a skilled gamer('s) with too much time. Getting that high is still an accomplishment, though I just don't think hes as skilled as people act like he is.
Wow, you must have ALOT of time on your hand.
Good at games, sucks at life.
Complete double standard on N4G: http://n4g.com/news/970095/...
@RedDead The general consensus seems to be "someone has too much time on their hands" in both, so what are you talking about?
ALOT of time on his hands...and MONEY!!
A lot of time Yes, a lot of money, doesn't need to. He has a website or blog or whatever where he askes people help to get more and more platinuns, how? Well people donate or borrow him games, that's how LOL so for those saying sony should give him a ps4 because of his trophies I think it would made sence if he had bought every single game that he has platinum for not that would pretty much earn him a ps4 for dedication and loyalty to the brand. And there's a guy from kuwait that has over 400 platinuns so 350 (or 370) it's not "the best" but instead "one of the best" ;)
Does he have a girlfriend to go with it?
He needs a trophy wife!!! Get it??? Get it??? Ohhh
It's two people. Not impressed really. Lives in UAE so he gets games like 2 weeks earlier than everyone else. call me a hater, i'm just saying the facts.
I know a guy with over 200 & it's impossible unless u r using a team to do it...offline& then loading up to same panel account. Some of the gamea take too long to platinum. I believe trophies launched in nov 2008. That's 40 months. That's 8+ platinums a month. It has to be a team operating under 1 name
june 08 but your point still stands :p
He's been called out many times for having trophies with very similar time stamps, which means one of 2 things, multiple people working on the account, or save hacking.
Wow 350 platinums i only have 4 :(
last time I checked, he had the SOCOM: Confrontation platinum, and get them all at once via the save glitch. -1 legit platinum.
i have 43 it depends on the games some are way to time intensive
I just play through, and get them when I go. Not too interested in being able to say I have x amount. But yeah, nice list. Wasn't it also confirmed its more than one person?
Quite an "achievement". Intervention time maybe? Darn dedicated that's for sure!
Honestly, its not how many he has its the type of games he plays.
Exactly this. Overall though, the thing I never got is, how many people CANT do the hardest objective in most of the games? The thing stopping most people from getting the platinum isn't doing the hardest task, but the longest task. (all numbers off psnprofiles.com) Bulletstorm: Golden Idol (hardest)= 9.72% Dead Echo (longest) = 5.29% Touch my Katamari: Connoisseur (hardest) = 13.51% Fanatic (longest) = 5.71% Rage: RAGE Nightmare (hardest) = 13.08% Obsessive Compulsive (longest) = 10.45% NeverDead: Completist (hardest) = 6.26% Big Spender (longest) = 4.43% I can keep listing games, but the vast majority of things people don't/won't do are just long. So as I keep trying to tell people, while he might have the most... it says more about dedication than actual skill. Plenty of gamers can beat the majority of the hard modes out there and do plenty of the really hard trophies without getting close to this because they value their time more than killing 100,000 zombies in Dead Rising.
What you said is soooo true ! I play the snot out of my games, and have 0 platinum trophies! I beat them on hardest difficulty too! Two trophies away fom mt first platinum! KILLZONE 3!
His mindset was: "Oh I'm going to buy this game because it has an easy plat, not because I think its a fun game." But anyways, great job with the platinums, this is outstanding.
"Get out of the house" trophy still locked...
Just looked me up, i'm number 63,821. 8 platinums are plenty...
Haha the title 350 "LEGIT" plats= Lets not question it! Cuz its all true. Lol yes I am jealous of non-real world trophies! When you get 350 trophies in real life come talk to me!
u heard of a trophy store right?
Hard to afford trophies from a trophy store if all you do is play non-work related video games.
I've still got my patches from Activision (Atari 2600). They USED to be real "trophies" issued if you sent in a Polaroid. The patches got ironed on the backpack to show off in school. Frogger, Laser Blast, etc. If you weren't at least a little affected, you wouldn't have taken the effort to comment.
Does this include games that are just 100% but no plat trophhy, and those plats you get that are pre-dlc so his 100% isnt at so but the trophy is there..eitherway I agree with above posters,"Must be a team." Wonder how they buy all those titles.
Possible realities here: 1) A team did this, just like the rest of the big "trophy hunters". 2) The guy is a game tester at Sony, just like Cyrus. 3) Rain Man started playing video games... There are no other possibilities.
I repect this guy.. go go Hakoom :)
I only have one.
No way he has the " wipeout " platinum !
Platinums: 350 Girls Laid: 0....Look, I'm a gamer also but it comes to a point where this stuff is ridiculous. It's highly unlikely he's a millionaire with the looks of some really good looking man and has girls just come to him haha
maybe now he could focus on losing his virginity?
Jealousy is a stinky cologne.
