Just announced that Greg Miller has become the first person to earn a Platinum Trophy in inFAMOUS.
greg's the man haha he really enjoys inFAMOUS doesnt he? ahh the wait is killing me and that black/red lightning is tempting me
Yes he is the man and he is very funny on podcast Beyond
Im kinda glad about this because after hearing this it sounds like the platinum is not impossible to get. ANother platinum for me for sure.
Then again, I probably suck too much to go for Platinum in anything, lol.
Curse you Greg Miller.... Off topic I'm now forming a list with everybody on Earth named Greg Miller with their address. I will individually hunt them down until I can steal THE Greg Miller's copy.
Lucky BASTARD!!! He was swearing he was going to get the platinum too, lol. He really did it... I've yet to get a platinum :-(... Going back through Uncharted now tho & plan to get one for Infamous as well!
I never got excited for this game at all, but now that I am reading about it more and more, I must say, it's starting to rub off on me. I will wait for the demo on the 21st. It doesn't help that I am currently a broke ass mofo. :(
CONGRATS BUDDY! LETS CELEBRATE!
Lol well thats not fair. I mean the rest of the world has to wait another two weeks for the game while Greg has been playing it for the past month. But oh well what can you do?
I'm just happy to be playing the demo and this guy is done, 100%, finished with the game. Lucky bastard.
That's not the point, the point is that it tells you how good the game is, if he was eager to put that much time on the game is because it was fun...I don't think he did that for a N4G headline :)
Wow, what an accomplishment when it's not even out for %99 of people who game. It's like a one man track meet and at the end you pat yourself on the back because you came in first. Lame.
That xbox 360 lead hmm..
@viral Now that was good!
that has nothing to do woth this. but yea i wish i had the game a month sooner. who am i kidding i probably still wouldnt get it ;)
Since you put it that way, it got a good laugh out of me. Hey Sony, how about a firmware update to say how long it took to get a platinum as far as game play hours. That way, we all have a chance to upstage this guy and write a post in all caps bragging how it took us 25 game play hours and it took him 36. (Just numbers, I have no idea how long it took.)
haha, PS3 fanbois trying to bait me... not falling for that. Here is your third place ribbon. =) @3.6: lol, and that ribbon will last you a good 10 years. ;)
but i bet it will be the best third place ribbon ever made. :)
You should stop bating in public.
He isn't being a douchebag or a fanboy. He is right. The guy got a review copy ahead of everyone else. It's like running a race against yourself and it's not a time trial. Where's the accomplishment in that.
Getting the Platinum was indeed commendable. BUT, bragging about "world's first!" was not.
what was wrong the track thing or his rebutal to viral going way off topic to create friction? edit: wtf were taking twitter posts as news now? :(
That was one of the best comebacks I've ever read on this fanboy filled site. I couldn't even laugh. I almost felt like I was the one you smacked in the mouth.
fair enough. but you did go after one way harder then the other
The 360 isn't even in first place although it started the race ahead of the PS3 and Wii. ^_^ And the PS3 has been running at a faster pace than the 360.
Come on people! Have a laugh about it! ViRaL- threw out a zinger and I had a little jab back at him. Give the console war a rest for funks sake.
and i can watch every episode on my ps3 through my 1080p tele. o wait were done with that. :)
what kinda fruity little fanboy comment was that? grow up. and try to stay on topic. @crab: i guess if there was a reward for being first, we should care. but since this is the first any of us heard there was a competition (apparently), i don't think it's anything to focus on. one thing's for sure about this year... you can tell we're in a slump for quality gaming. infamous is all anyone is talking about. so much so that there are 60 comments about some guy who got a trophy in an unreleased game.
Can't be too hard then :P
i knew he liked the game but i didn't know he liked it this much lol!.
to ask for the sequel......damm greg
Congrats to greg on his epic achievement but does this really fall into the category of news?
Once you compare it to all of the other "news" on this site, you'll come to the conclusion that yes, yes it does.
im pretty sure that someone in the QA team already got platinum, lol. dont they gotta make sure every trophy unlocks at the right time??
But QA uses cheat codes to unlock different aspects of the game. I think they mean the first to unlock without assistance. EDIT: I understand you can't use codes to unlock trophies/acheivements. But the use of codes to unlock all weapons or powers or all areas do exist and are used. Otherwise testers would have to really play the game all the way through to the point in the game they were trying to test, which isn't cost effective. Where do people think cheat codes came from in the first place. Also it could have something to do with whether or not he was playing on a debug or a regular PS3.
there are no cheats to unlock Trophies/Achievements. they have to be earned EACH AND EVERY TIME. by that i mean, you make a profile, unlock all achievements/trophies on that profile. when you get a new build, you have to make a new profile again, then unlock the achievements/trophies all over again. and you have to do this each and every time you get a new build. it's probably why i don't give a rats @ss about achievements/trophies. after working on a project for 4-6 months (or longer), being forced to unlock such gems as "get 10,000 kills in MP" or "1,000 Wins in MP"(not a made up Achievement/Trophy; just ask Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Athena) for 8-10 hours a day, 6 days a week (sometimes 7 days a week) just kind of kills the appeal of such things. most of the games i've worked on disable cheats to make sure that the cheats are causing any bugs. we have to play the game like a gamer would at the end of the project, making sure everything is working fine, THEN, if it is, cheats may be enabled for retail release. i mean, that's just from my own experiences in the gaming industry, working for various companies (from Activision, to Vivendi, to Obsidian Entertainment, to Square-Enix, etc).
You get bubbles for your hard labor. I had to help out the QA team one weekend to help them meet their deadline, and it was the most excruciating gaming experience I ever had. I don't care who you are, but videogame QA-ing is real "WORK". Kudos. Now go spend those extra bubbles on some fanboy/trolls. ;)
that 1,000 wins Achievement/Trophy was a B*TCH to unlock, especially since there was another bug that made saving impossible, so we'd have to reboot the game after each round, which made unlocking that particular achievement a week long affair, instead of the day or two it would normally take. thankfully, all that was fixed, but holy crap, what a horribly frustrating month of work that was!
i`ll definitely go for the platinum trophy on this game.
Only On Playstation
I don't understand. What do you mean "jump to the PS3 wagon"? Aren't they under Sony's umbrella of gaming studios? Sony still owns them I believe.
I dunno if they own them, but they have always been Sony exclusive. A little like insomniac.
Sucker Punch IS a Sony gaming studio. They were acquired a while back.
Feel proud Greg Miller, for being the first person to get a Platinum Trophy on a game that isn't even out yet. Your mother must brag about you to ALL of her book club friends. But seriously, does it REALLY matter? If the game was already out and he was the first to get it, it would (sorta). But since it's not, nobody should really care. inb4 disagrees.
Uncharted LBP Killzone2 and i'm one trophy away from platinuming Bioshock that's right platinuming any one manage the Warhawk Plat?
I got none but im almost lvl 7 that socom plat is probly the hardest to get.
LittleBigPlanet Uncharted Burnout Paradise Quantum of Solace and I'm going to get the inFAMOUS platinum mark my words! :P
Burnout:Paradise Dead Space LittleBigPlanet Resident evil 5 Uncharted i`m also close to get the KillZone 2 and GTA4 ones but might never get them because i don`t have much time to play them online.
Mine are... Mercenaries 2 LittleBigPlanet Uncharted Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection Burnout Paradise Midnight Club: Los Angeles Quantum of Solace Motorstorm: Pacific Rift Fallout 3 Prince of Persia Buzz: Quiz TV and more to come! ^_^
Is this really news worthy? If I took a dump and it was shaped like Sadam Hussein, would that be news worthy too?
Only if it had a 360 controller in his hand. I only mean to add some game relation to the comment. This is not an attack on the 360.
Ahh, thank you sir. I probably should have added something like that myself. Didn't even think of it.
Damn! Greg must really like this game if he went as far as to get a Platinum.
all i can say is loser...
Yup. Total loser for having a job that involves playing all of the latest games for free before anyone else and getting to meet many of the people in the industry face-to-face. Total loser...
Miller is a cheat
Its an accomplishment to complete a game before anyone else, given the fact he has access to it early, while others have to wait two weeks to even start playing? Uh huh....Okay then..
miller used game genie!
Haven't used that since the SNES and Genesis.. thanks for the good Laugh. On a serious note I'm glad he found the game fun enough to play til he got the Platinum trophy.
14 more days... This game will be great. :D
way to take it as a joke crab, like I said it was funny. You have grown quite a bit crab, good to see you not turning back.
I can't believe sum of u r takeing it so serious. About him getting it first before it's released to everyone else. I'm sure nobody was bragging or anything it was probably supposed to be taken pretty light hearted. I think it's cool he liked the game that much to get the platinum. That's takeing reviewing to the next level. This is gonna be my first platnum.
Try for uncharted before the next one hits, pretty damn fun getting that one.
you know what? i've beat uncharted about 5 or 6 times. it's my favorite game this gen so far. besides msg4 but i put that in it's own category. but i still haven't played a game just to get trophies. i'm sure if i try to get all the trophies in uncharted i will. actually if the trophies would have been there from the start i probably would have just ended up getting them just from beating it so many times but i beat it only about twice since the trophy update. anywho i think inFAMOUS i'll actually try to get the trophies.
should i pick infamous or little big planet? can't decide!
wow what a decision. me i'd go infamous but i already have lbp. lol. the games are so different. i'd go infamous because it's new. but lbp is a WONDERFUL game. one of the last levels in that game has this big wheel thing that you have to get through and it is HARD AS HELL. took me like 20 tries i swear.
He will also be the first person to become tired of that game. I wouldn't wanna be in his place :D
Congrats Greg.... Would have liked to have seen him sweat a bit more for it though!
but sony gives them creative freedom and the resource to make great games . Unlike that other company(nickname RROD) where they handcuff you , lock you up and steal your ideas .Than call it there own ....LMAO
Greg Miller has too much time on his hands and has no girlfriend.
