Not sure where else to post this.

Somebody in another comunity recently boasted of having just got 2 new Platinum trophies. Pacific Rift & Apocalypse. Anyone who's played them know that's nigh on impossible, so I did a bit of digging.

I found some quite disturbing stuff:

If someone has actually paid this guy money for trophies, then I feel sorry for them.

5 people have paid for that godfather plat you linked :O

 

People are paying more than the price of the game just for virtual trophies.

there isn't a law against making money from idiots.
Though they are breaching a fair amount of Ts&Cs.

Bet those losers don't even change their password afterwards. That would be a really easy way to get money from idiots, then get their psn ID and steal their games.
Not that I'm suggesting this particular fine fellow on ebay is doing that, but you could.

I have the MotorStorm: Pacific Rift Platinum and I earned it legitimately… :P

The whole deal with people paying for a trophy earning 'service' has been going on for quite a while now. And as much as I'd like to see something done about it, I know nothing will. The truth is, there's always going to be someone cropping up and doing this kind of thing, no matter how many times they've been warned or what consequences there will be. I think the people paying for someone else to earn trophies for them are the problem, because without them, why would people even bother setting up these 'services'?

Still, I would very much love to see the people partaking in this activity be banned.

I think the bigger issue is people handing over their login details!

Amazing to think that there are still dumb people belonging to the human race.

 

I went to Alton Towers yesterday on The Sun free ticket offer but there are people trying to sell these tickets and people are actually buying them. Even on Ebay some one is selling 2 adult tickets for £120, it's only £84 if you pay on the gate.

I noticed he's added Terminator Salvation to the list

 

If anyone needs someone else to platinum such an easy game then maybe they should consider giving up gaming

Wait.... People actually pay to get platnium trophies O_o?? umm WHY? I can understand not having the time to do it but that doesnt mean paying someone and then handing over your log in details for a virtual item that they no doubt brag about getting on their own.
