Oh, the elusive Platinum trophy, how you taunt gamers. Once a player unlocks every trophy in a particular PS3/Vita game, they will be awarded with this shiny trinket.
But which titles have been "platinum'd" the most? Sony has revealed the top 10.
The team over at the PlayStation Blog compiled the data of the top 10 titles, with Assassin's Creed 2 being the number one. Other notable games on the list include the first two Uncharted games, InFAMOUS and Modern Warfare 2.
It's assumed that when compiling this list, Sony also took PS Vita titles into account, after all the device does have trophy support. The games just probably don't show up because they're so recent - one can't expect Uncharted Golden Abyss to beat out Assassin's Creed 2, a title that's been out for nearly three years.
Check out the list:
- Assassin’s Creed II
- Modern Warfare 2
- Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
- God of War 3
- Resident Evil 5
- Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune
- God of War (GoW HD Collection)
- Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus (The Sly Collection)
The list should hardly come as a surprise, considering how "easy" these platinums are - and by easy, we mean that they don't take as much dedication as say, Warhawk. Still with that being the case it's hard to believe Terminator Salvation isn't up there, after all the only requirement for 100% is beating the game on hard mode.
As Sony's Jeff Rubenstein points out, many of these games have trophy lists that focus solely on single player, such as the Uncharted games which feature few multiplayer trophies. The lack of multiplayer heavy games makes sense, after it's usually easier to score 100% completion in single player games. It also seems more likely that most gamers would rather play through the God of War 3 challenge levels than grind out a tacked on multiplayer component for hours on end. That said, the inclusion of Modern Warfare 2 makes sense - given how long that game has been out coupled with the sheer amount of people who purchased it.
So what are the top 10 least platinum'd games? We might see that list show up in the near future, but I'd probably have to say WipEout HD is somewhere up there. Damn those Zones trophies!
Ranters, do you have any of these platinums? What other games have you scored 100% in?
