Easy PS5 and PS4 platinum trophies – how to get your score up with these games

FOR SOME PlayStation fans, hunting down trophies is as much fun as conquering a Dark Souls boss or swinging above the streets of New York as Spiderman.

But not all trophies are created equal. Some are far easier to unlock than others, offering a quick way to boost your virtual collection.

Tales from Borderlands has a pretty easy platinum trophy on offer

Trophies are awarded for a range of achievements, such as beating games, finding collectibles, or completing certain tasks.

They range in difficulty from gold trophies for hard-to-beat challenges to bronze trophies for assignments that don’t eat up too many hours.

Platinum trophies are the crème de la crème of the trophy-hunting world, rewarded for attaining every trophy a game has to offer.

It’s a challenging feat for longer games, requiring patient gamers to sweep up every collectible and explore every virtual nook and cranny.

Gamers can also bag a platinum trophy pretty quickly on Goat Simulator

However, some games offer relatively easy platinum trophies that take just a few hours to obtain.

In a recent feature, Gamerant highlighted what is says are the 15 easiest platinum trophies to get on the PlayStation 4.

As most PS4 games are compatible with the PlayStation 5, the list also applies to anyone who’s got their hands on Sony’s next-generation console.

Check out the list below for a quick and easy way to boost your trophy count – and happy hunting!

PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X – when did they launch and how much do they cost?

Microsoft launched the Xbox Series X and its smaller, cheaper sibling, the Series S, on November 10.

The release date covered the UK, US, Australia and a bunch of other countries worldwide.

The disc-free Series S costs £249/$299, while the Xbox Series X comes in at £449/$499.

So how does that compare to the new Xbox’s biggest rival, the PlayStation 5?

The PS5 launch fell on November 12, but not everywhere.

That date only stood for the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea.

UK gamers had to wait until November 19 to order one of the consoles.

The PS5 proper costs £449.99/$499.99, while the digital edition comes in at £359/$399.


In other news, The Sun’s favourite alternative to a games console is the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset.

Grab a VR headset and you’ll be able to play the legendary Beat Saber – like Guitar Hero, but with lightsabers.

And Dell’s Alienware R10 Ryzen Edition is a gaming PC powerhouse that crushes both the new consoles.
