  1. If you've recently changed your username: Visiting your profile on this site with your old name may not show any trophies once you change your username. In this case you will need to type your new username into the box on the homepage of the website for your trophies to move to your new name. You may have to wait up to 24 hours for everything to completely transfer over after typing in your new name. If some of your trophies or some games are missing from your profile, or in some rare cases none of your trophies show up at all, then you've come to the right place! There's a few steps that we must take to fix the problem. The problem is that you have probably accidentally hidden trophies in the privacy settings on one of your PlayStation consoles. This makes it to where nobody else except for you can see the trophies that you have hidden (Including this website not being able to see your hidden trophies). On August 2013, Sony updated the PSVITA and the PS3 systems to allow you to officially hide your trophies. The PS4 and PS5 also has the ability to hide trophies. There are two different effects that hidden trophies will have on your profile here on this website: If your profile here on the site is not updating no matter what you do or it's just completely blank with the message "Aww, no trophies here," even though you actually have trophies, this applies to you - read the red text below in the "Directions for un-hiding trophies" section. If the first step doesn't apply to you, then you most likely will see an icon on the left side of your own profile page (Its probably been there for a while in this case). What this means is that you have probably accidentally hidden one or more random games from your profile. Hover your mouse over it and it will expand telling you the number of trophies you've hidden. This means that you have hidden trophies and they must be un-hidden on one of your PlayStation consoles to show up on this website. The only information we are given from Sony is how many trophies are hidden, not exactly what games are hidden! You have to figure out which games of yours are missing from your list on your own! (Unless you have a PS4 or PS5, where it shows all of your hidden games in an organized list in the settings menu). - - - Directions on un-hiding trophies - To un-hide trophies, use one of the following methods. You can use any of these consoles to manage your entire game library, not just the games for that one console, so choose a method. PS5 and PS4 are easiest to manage your trophy settings on. For the people with completely blank profiles with the message, "Aww, no trophies here," you most likely ONLY need to look at the information in red text below. ON PS5 Go to Settings by selecting the gear icon at the top-right of the PS5's main menu. Select Users and Accounts. Go down to the Privacy section on the sidebar and then choose View and Customize Your Privacy Settings. Scroll down to "Who can see your gaming history" and make sure Anyone is selected for that option. Below that is an option which says "Hide your games from other players", select that option and make sure none of the games from the list are switched on. Note that you can only hide or unhide PS4 and PS5 games in this menu. Now you have to earn at least 1 new trophy to see your changes show up on this website (PSNProfiles), it can be any random trophy that can be earned on any console. When you earn a new trophy, then update your profile here on this website and everything should be fixed! ON PS4 Go to Settings. Select the Account Management option from the settings menu. Now select Privacy Settings. It will ask you to type in your PSN username and password so you can access your privacy settings. Once you've entered your username and password, it will send you to the "Privacy Settings" page - Select Gaming | Media. Now select Gaming History. It take you to a screen which says "Choose who can see your games and trophies", make sure that you select Anyone from the drop-down menu. Press Confirm. Now back on the Games Privacy Settings menu, choose Hidden Games. You can manage your games library for PS3, Vita, and PS4 games here. Selecting "PS4" will show all of your PS4 games and selecting "PS3 & Vita" will show all of your PS3 & Vita games intermixed within your PS4 trophy lists as you scroll through it. PS5 games cannot be hidden/unhidden from the PS4. Make sure all of your games do not have checks by them, if a game has a check by it, that means that game is hidden. Press Confirm when you're done. You'll be sent back to the Hidden Games main area. Now that you've unhidden any games you can exit out of the settings menu. Now you have to earn at least 1 new trophy to see your changes show up on this website (PSNProfiles), it can be any random trophy that can be earned on any PlayStation console. When you earn a new trophy, then update your profile here on this website and everything should be fixed! If ALL of your games are hidden on this website, it means that your trophy privacy settings for your PSN account is not set to "Anyone". Simply follow the steps above. You can skip steps 8 - 11 if you'd like. ON PS3 Go to your trophy collection. Note: Make sure your trophy collection is in "online mode" (Press triangle over the trophy collection icon and then select online mode). Select your trophy collection and your list of games should populate the screen. Find a game that doesn't show up on your list on PSNProfiles. Do not press X to select the game though, instead press triangle. A few options should show up, press privacy settings. At the top it should say "Show Trophies for This Game" - make sure the box has a check-mark! (If the box is left without a check-mark, the game will stay hidden). When the box has a check-mark, press OK. Then do the same for all of your other games that don't show up on this website. Now you have to earn at least 1 new trophy to see your changes show up on this website (PSNProfiles), it can be any random trophy that can be earned on any PlayStation console. When you earn a new trophy & sync it to PSN, then update your profile here on this website and everything should be fixed! If ALL of your games are hidden on this website, it means that your trophy privacy settings for your PSN account is not set to "Anyone" - Go to the PSN section of the PS3's main menu, then go to Account Management, then select Privacy settings. It will ask you to verify by typing in your PSN account password. Then where it says "Show Trophies", you need to select "Anyone" from the drop-down menu. Now look at step 8 above. ON PSVITA Go to your trophy app so that you are able to see your trophy collection. At the top-left of your screen, there are two buttons, "PS Vita System" & "PlayStation Network" - You can only edit privacy under "PlayStation Network", so select "PlayStation Network". A list of all your games show up if you're connected to the internet. Scroll down the list and find one of your games that do not appear on this website and select that game. When you've selected the game its list of trophies show up - now press the button at the bottom right, the (•••) button. A few options show up, you want to select "Privacy Settings". There will be a pop-up, you want to make sure the box has a check-mark to "Show Trophies for This Game", this will un-hide your trophies for that game. Go to every other game that does not show up on this website and un-hide those also. Now you have to earn at least 1 new trophy to see your changes show up on this website (PSNProfiles), it can be any random trophy that can be earned on any PlayStation console. When you earn a new trophy & sync it to PSN, then update your profile here on this website and everything should be fixed! If ALL of your games are hidden on this website, it means that your trophy privacy settings for your PSN account is not set to "Anyone" - Go to the Settings App, then select PSN, then scroll down and select privacy settings and it will ask you to verify with your PSN password, once you type your password in, scroll down to "Show Trophies" and make sure "Anyone" is selected. Now Look at step 8 above. - - - Still Not Working? - While rare, you may want to check your other consoles to see if the game is marked as hidden on those consoles. For example, your PS4 may show a game as unhidden, but if you check your PS3 or Vita, those may actually still have the game marked as hidden. You'll need to make sure the game is marked as unhidden on all consoles, then earn a new trophy in any game on any console, and then update your profile here on this website which should fix it. If that doesn't work, then you will want to hide all games on your profile (Simply by selecting the option to where "no one" can see your trophies). After doing that, earn a new trophy on PSN, sync it, then update your profile here so it says "Aww, no trophies here". Once that happens, go back to your PlayStation and change it to where "Anyone" can see your trophies. Now earn another new trophy in any game, sync it, then update your profile here on the site again which should fix the issue. - - - Removing 0% Trophy Lists - PS4 and PS5 allows users to delete any trophy lists that are at 0% completion, if you choose to do this for your games with 0% lists, the results will not show up on PSNProfiles until you earn a new trophy in any game on any console and then sync that trophy to PSN. After syncing your trophies to PSN, update your profile here on this website. After doing that, the changes should show up here. This can't be done on PS3 or Vita. - - - This is the end of the guide, community questions and discussion for hidden trophies begins below this point
  2. After a while, video game developers may change or add something to a trophy list on PSN. We have to be notified about those changes by you, because we have to go in and manually update those changes here on the site. If you know about something that changed, this is the place to report it! Simply reply to this thread and let us know what we need to update. The following things are what we can change. Rescan a trophy list – we need to do that if a list has: New Languages: The developer adds new languages to an existing trophy list that isn’t on the site, usually if a Japanese game is coming to the west and English is added to the list. Altered Trophy Names & Descriptions: Sometimes developers will alter names and descriptions of trophies on a list sometime after the list has been added to the site. We can't alter the names or descriptions from something different than what's on PSN! New Trophy Images: In rare cases trophy images change (sometimes they may originally be inaccurate or mixed up and developers fix them). New Thumbnail Image: The small image that usually has a game’s logo or name may be changed someday after the list has been added to the site. This usually applies to Japanese & Korean games releasing in the West. Region Tagging: If a game has multiple identical lists, let us know if it hasn't been region tagged yet or if was tagged incorrectly. When new identical lists get pushed onto the site, it may take up to 2 weeks to accurately determine its region and it may stay un-tagged until then. Console/Platform Tagging: If a developer adds a console tag to a trophy list anytime after the list was added to the site, you’ll need to let us know about it because we need to manually add it. In rare cases, a trophy list may be tagged with a console that the game never released for or accidentally mis-labeled at random by the developer with a console it isn’t on, let us know about that and we’ll determine if we want to remove that. We do not want to remove tags for any and every game that isn’t on a console yet or 'probably maybe' won’t release on a console it’s tagged for. If possible, you'll need to provide proof or confirmation the game won't release on a console it's tagged for (For example: Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus not releasing on Vita). VR tags are only given to games which require a VR headset to play them. If a game requires a VR headset and is not tagged yet or the game is updated to not require VR anymore, be sure to let us know! List Titles: If there is something weird about a list title, let us know about it! List titles are in standard formatting with all caps only used for acronyms or some game titles with ~4 or less letters. This means not all game titles will exactly match formatting on PSN, but it creates a uniform style across this entire website. Metadata (Developer, Publisher, Genre, Release Date, etc): We get this information from a website called IGDB.com, you can make an account there and alter any data that you find odd or wrong here! Simply make the changes there, it will have to undergo an approval process, and then it will take up to a week for the changes to show up here due to the time for their websites API to update and then PSNProfiles has to retrieve that data. There are games that do not have metadata here on the site (Mostly indie games or Japanese games), most likely meaning they aren’t existing game entries on IGDB.com, you can add a game onto that website after creating an account and once all the data you’ve entered for that game is approved, wait a full week and then let us know here and we can link it! Games A - Z have their metadata linked (if that game is listed on IGDB). Non-English games are not yet all linked. Game Series: Series boxes on the side of trophy lists are now clickable which take you to the series page. These are still a work in progress and there may be some inconsistencies at the moment. If a game is missing from a series, let us know so that we could add it. Not all recommendations for new series will be immediately created. At the moment we are looking for clear, obvious series with 2 or more main titles. Right now we may not immediately create series for obscure games or games "in the universe of" other games. We want to focus on refining what's there at the moment and make sure those are laid out well before delving into other more vague series. Banner Images & Trophy Card Images: If there is an incorrect piece of art or screenshot used as a banner or trophy card image, this is where you can point that out to us. Alternative images can also be recommended but if there is already a set banner image or trophy card image set on the site for a game, consider that set in stone having that changed from its current decided image is rare - it would usually have to be more visually appealing and fit the image area better to be changed. Header image dimensions are 1920 pixels wide by 520 pixels tall (the top 60 pixels are blurred behind the site navigation area). We prefer fullsize original images we can crop from, not images cut at this exact size, recommended images should be at or beyond 1920 pixels wide (1600 wide at least). Trophy Card 1 (Old Card) dimensions are 405 pixels wide by 120 pixels tall. Trophy Card 2 (New Card) dimensions are 500 pixels wide by 165 pixels tall. Virtually any size images are accepted for this but high resolution uncropped images are preferred. This post is replacing the Header Image thread, Rescan List thread, and Game Titles Need Editing thread in an effort to clean the pinned topics at the top and put all the site "asset" stuff in one central spot. Those threads will truly be missed, R.I.P. and press F to pay respects.
  3. Got a cool crew you want to advertise here on the forums for other members to join in? This is the place to talk about it! Feel free to make a post describing your crew and why people should join it. Note: In the future if you don't want your crew advertised on this thread anymore, you can press the report button to report your own post and a mod will be able to take the post down.
  4. Well it's basically inconsistent when it comes to finding lists with no players. It finds some at times, but not always - I'm not sure exactly why it's so picky though, some sort of logic it's using, like maybe it doesn't go back and check list ID's that previously weren't showing anything until there are players with an unknown list on their profile... Just a guess though
  5. Nah the lists just come through automatically, then we apply images and fix list info after. The reason there may be some missing lists is probably because nobody has played them yet, which for some reason this site doesn't find unplayed but active lists as well as others (which really isn't that big of a deal though, because they'll come in when people start playing it)
  6. Also earn a new trophy in any game on any console after unhiding the game, then update your profile here on the site
  7. Lol pretty much, detuned was made by the same developer but I never ended up playing that one
  8. I guess so, it was kind of an interesting artsy demonstration experience and graphically really nice for the PS3. It's got a pretty easy trophy list and also is one of the very first trophy lists ever created. It was definitely something people thought was interesting around the time but would probably just seem like a quirky demo today lol
  9. Here are some I can think of: PAIN High Velocity Bowling Super Rub a Dub Unfinished Swan Linger in Shadows Ratchet & Clank Quest for Booty Journey Flower Papo & Yo Echochrome Also while the download list isn't going away it may be worth checking it for some gems you may have forgotten you downloaded. For example I had the demo for Driver San Francisco, the original Gran Turismo 5 demos, and Resistance demo and more on my download list
  10. Though I've played the game I'm honestly not sure here. I would say to expect it to have to be bought in the same region but may be worth buying one of the cheaper DLC's and seeing if it's compatible ... By the way, this game is for sure one to add to your download list before the store closes. A really challenging trophy list but one of the most unique and fun PSN games on the PS3 for sure
  11. Looks like you just needed to enter your name into the box on the homepage to update your profile Should be good now: https://psnprofiles.com/SakuraAndHemming
  12. Wow. The PS3 store was a steaming pile of garbage that largely didn't work due to the lack of maintenance it received, and now taking it down completely is another huge blow. I got constant errors when trying to buy GTA IV and Mirror's Edge digitally recently and could only purchase them on the browser based store (which of course was pulled offline a few days ago). This is definitely frustrating for backwards compatibility and games preservation. I really, really, really hope Sony has some sort of plan to bring PS3 emulation to the PS5 at some point, I doubt it, but I hope they have a plan for this
  13. Definitely a good read! He's definitely got a few impressive platinum trophies for sure - Interesting to see how few PS3 games he played (which weren't on a dev console), though maybe most of them are hidden. He even admitted that Knack was just too much of a pain to platinum
  14. So you're thinking all @Sly Ripper would have to do is plug that into the already existing https://psnprofiles.com/leaderboard/rarity board he's got set up and clear out those flagged accounts?
  15. Search used to be perfect years ago before the site overhaul, you could even search most non-English games and they'd show up at the top too. I guess Sly decided to go with a different search system with the site redesign years back. I still have yet to fully understand why the site comes up with what it often does with the search results I'm not able to dive into the code like that, only Sly is able to
  16. Sony's way of fixing this would actually be quite simple, they would just need to implement 3 basic rules for developers/publishers for any future games: No repeat trophy lists for the same game A trophy list can only have 4 gold trophies max, and must have more silver trophies than gold, and more bronze trophies than silver If all the trophies in a game can be achieved within the span of a few hours by most people, it does not get a platinum trophy The problem isn't the people getting the shovelware trophies, it's that there are loopholes in the trophy system that are now getting exploited by developers or publishers because Sony hasn't updated the list rules since they built the trophy system all the way back in 2008
  17. I'll also add that sites like this fixed a massive issue years ago with something Sony didn't care to fix, and that was addressing cheaters where sites like this one started pulling cheaters off the leaderboards. Without doing that, the amount of people that would care about and use everything relating to the entire leaderboard system (and all the surrounding systems affected by that, which are many) would pretty much be nobody. Sites like these effectively fixed Sony's oversights with that issue. Now there is clearly an issue with "trophy inflation", meaning while the trophies are obviously all still worth the same amount of points, the amount of effort that it takes to obtain those trophies have a laughably far less effort on average needed to get them. It has changed the dynamic of it taking years on average to getting 100 platinum trophies to just being able to get 4x that amount in a weekend. This is yet another problem with the trophy system that Sony doesn't care to fix (just like trophy cheaters years back). Whichever trophy website chooses to address this issue by introducing a well calculated rarity leaderboard alongside the original long-running total points leaderboard will be a smart move. Also, introducing possibly a new trophy or award (like a diamond trophy or a diamond medal or something) which is given to you for any platinum trophies below a certain rarity (like 50%) will effectively solve the problem too. I've always thought it strange how people are trying to argue this not being a thing that's happening and how something new just can't possibly be put in place to fix the original 'at-a-glance' info that the leaderboard and platinum trophies used to provide, which they no longer do. Just a few simple additions would fix the issue, and wouldn't replace anything that's already there either. People get in some pretty heated conversations about something that has pretty obviously been happing for years lol
  18. I just started laughing to myself seeing 8 lists for the same freaking game all in the same day - you're saying Ratailaka did this? I am shocked, truly I hope something is done about the shovelware at some point by Sony or by Sly, because why would developers or publishers stop flooding the market with trash when people are still buying the games to play them for 10 minutes to "earn" the trophies? While it hasn't killed off my personal interest in trophy hunting because most normal games still have good trophy lists, it's completely killed my interest in the community aspect of trophy hunting. Who cares about browsing other peoples profiles now when most of them are full of shovelware lists?
  19. Fixed lol PSN's quality control always firing on all cylinders
  20. - THE RESULTS - Hello PSNProfiles! It's that time of the year again, the 6th year in a row that we've posted results for the Guide of the Year Awards. We decided to go with the format we started last year which awards the top 3, then gives 21 more guides some love as well. Last year this worked fantastically, and this year is no different! Guide of the Year Winners To start off as we have from the beginning, the first awards we'll give are for the top three guides this year from all of your nominations for this category. There were some really incredible guides this year, and these are three that we felt mastered many different aspects of guide writing in impressive ways. Here are the winners! 1st Place Crypt of the NecroDancer Trophy Guide By Floriiss 2nd Place Persona 5 Complete 100% Walkthrough By Optinooby 3rd Place Tokyo Xanadu Trophy Guide By Jelloycat So where to start here, this year was tough with deciding the top three, but wow these are amazing. First place was a favorite with community nominations, the Crypt of the NecroDancer Trophy Guide. This guide has the tough task of guiding the reader through a really difficult game, and does it with incredible details with a nicely laid out and thoughtful format. It just works so well, and not to mention it comes paired with an unbelievably detailed Ultimate Boss Guide too. Second place goes to the Persona 5 Complete 100% Walkthrough, and you can just tell the unbelievable amount of effort that went into this guide by opening it up and allow your browser chug away at loading the massive amount of text, images, and videos within this guide. Third place is for Tokyo Xanadu, and this is a guide that cleanly goes through all of the important details and nuances of this game with helpful tables, videos, and images. There was really though competition this year, but these are the three that found themselves to the top. Congratulations! The Exceptional Guide Winners Last year we started the format of awarding 21 guides with the exceptional awards and it worked quite nicely! This year we've decided to do that again, but this time we dropped the "Quality Upkeep" category in favor of the Exceptional Imported Game Guides category to show off those that not only write an exceptional guide, but translate aspects of the game for readers. All of the winners will get an Exceptionally High Quality badge on their guide recognizing their efforts, along with sweet cash prizes of $50 for 1st place, $40 for 2nd place, and $30 for third place in each category! Well done to the winners, these guides are incredible. Exceptional Walkthrough Guides Three impressive picks from a category that's been absolutely blowing us away this past year quality-wise.

Bullet Girls Phantasia Trophy Guide - By hasegawa2010 Phantasy Star Nova Trophy Guide - By Mikel93 Dead or School Trophy Guide - By UmbraCthulhu Exceptional Guides With Original Content Incredible picks of writers that went the extra mile and make their own videos, images, and combination of these within their guide. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Trophy Guide - By davyjones4812 Resident Evil 2 Trophy Guide - By angelbless45 Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled Trophy Guide - By Z-Yux and ThaKingTropy Honestly, while we went through to choose the winners we nearly forgot just how many incredible guides were written this year. The amount of details in some of these guides, or the amount of video content created by the writers themselves, or the amount of quality and care is staggering. There are thousands of people that have used your guides and have undoubtedly found them massively helpful and an incredible resource. Each year we run through some interesting stats covering how the guide system is growing, here they are for this year: So last year we hit the milestone of 9 guides hitting the 100,000 view mark, but this year we now have a total of 22 guides with over 100,000 views. Twenty two stadiums full of people have viewed guides! If that wasn't enough, 8 more guides are less than 5,000 views away from hitting the 100,000 mark! Last year a total of 531 guides reached the 10,000 view mark, now it's 840 guides with over 10,000 views. That a third of total published guides with over 10,000 views! Last year there were 233 guides with over 20,000 views and 124 guides with over 30,000 views. This year that's 444 guides with over 20,000 views and 260 guides with over 30,000! This time last year there were 49 guides with over 50,000 views and 15 guides with over 75,000 views. Now the guides with 50,000 views or more has more than doubled to 111 guides and guides over 75,000 views has more than tripled to reach 51 guides! A grand total of 2,516 guides have now been written on the site, I wonder how many words that is - probably in the millions? So that is all for now! We hope all the winners enjoy their rewards, and we'll see you all again next year! We our guide writers
  21. Are people really arguing for 3 pages about the word "free" being used for PlayStation Plus? It's not hard to understand what he means when he says 'free', right? It's not that big of a deal haha
  22. I've seen a message like that on some forum threads in the past because an image that was used on a forum post is related to a site that got breached, removing the image from the tread removed the message. If that's the case, a forum mod can probably remove the image in the thread page you link to. Otherwise it's probably an ad if it's not a forum thread you're seeing it at
  23. Yeah that makes no sense at all, it sounds like they just gave you a random response because they don't know lol - Looking at your profile on PSN itself, it looks like you have 34 more trophies than on the site. Try hiding all of you trophies on your console (Don't do that to all of them individually, just change the main setting from where 'anyone' can see your trophies to where 'no one' can see your trophies). Then update your profile here on the site to where it says "Aww no trophies here", then switch the privacy setting on your console to where 'anyone' can see your trophies, earn a new trophy, then update your profile here again and that should hopefully fix it
  24. You'll need to earn a new trophy in any other game, then update your profile here in order for those deleted lists to disappear from your profile here on the site
  25. Not sure if it'll work, but you could try this: https://psnprofiles.com/auth/discord
