New PlayStation game takes a decade to achieve platinum trophy
A new PlayStation release will take gamers at least 10 years to platinum, much to the chagrin of the PlayStation community. The Platinum Trophy is the final trophy for every game on PlayStation. Once the player unlocks the penultimate trophy, they get a platinum, which basically tells other players that that person has reached 100% completion in that game. It’s nothing but the right to brag, but damn it, it feels good. Trophy hunters are not exactly new to the concept of patience, there are many difficult games that require a considerable amount of time to complete completely, but the player is usually proactive in achieving this.
Now the long-awaited release of The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe asks players to do nothing in the game for 10 years for its “Super Go Outside” trophy. If you accidentally open the game in Year 5, you’ll have to start over. The trophy requires players not to play the game for a full decade, which means it won’t be attainable until April 2032. Of course, if you’re a trophy hunter, you know you technically don’t have to follow these rules. The only way the game will know that 10 years have passed is through the console’s internal clock, so it’s possible that if you just set the PlayStation clock to exactly 10 years after you last played the game , you can unlock the trophy. While it’s not a certainty, it’s unlikely many people will remember returning to gaming 10 years from now, especially if the PlayStation 6 is out by then. The game is also available on Xbox, so if gamers want an easy Gamerscore of 100 (or extremely hard depending on your strategy), it can probably be achieved the same way on Microsoft’s consoles.
There are a number of games that have already made it so that players can only unlock trophies and achievements after a certain amount of time. Batman: Arkham City famous for having players visit Calendar Man in his cell at every major real-life party to unlock a trophy/achievement. Of course, many only used the internal clock loophole, but some people waited a full year to unlock it.
