For real, sorry if this is not the correct section or this was already reported but I didn't find anything. 

I was scrolling for games on ebay and found this (no link only images):

Lmao this is hilarious. Literally takes all the fun out of playing games to get trophies. I can't imagine many people are paying for this, but I bet a few are.

Illegal? As in against the law? I don't know of any laws in any country against unlocking trophies on PlayStation consoles.

 

While it maybe against Sony's terms, Sony doesn't care about trophies being unlocked, through gameplay or otherwise.

Seems like a rip off, cyberpunk isn't that hard. 99 euros for a custom game is the nailed in the coffin.

As much as I dislike the people who offer these kinds of services, I at least understand their goals.

 

For the people who order these, I'd only have one question:

I don't really have much issue with the people offering the service to be honest, at least they are putting the work in and earning money for it. It's more the people paying for it that are a bit smooth in the brain department - paying actual money for a third party to earn trophies for you which are completely arbitrary.

 

As the saying goes - 'A fool and his money are soon parted'.

32 euro for RDR2?! 

 

Basically confirms that they're hacking, as the game takes at least a week. You wouldn't play games for a living if you were earning just 32 euro a week. 

 

Just more of a challenge for our cheater-hunters, frankly.

I'd rather not have a trophy then pay someone to get it for me.
And with it saying Legit stamps kind of sounds like hacks to me, that I wouldn't want to risk getting my account stolen like this either and with how many games I have pretty sure they would too.
 And I see fall guys on there not even tempted with that one as much as I do want that infallible trophy.

Speaking of things being illegal, I always thought it should be illegal to sell Pokemon on ebay as well, along with any other in game items.

So you can pay the store for a game, then pay this service not to have to play it... 

 

... awesome, where do I sign up? 😂

Yeah probably should have worded it better, maybe immoral. Probably against the rules on psnp but how can they enforce it?

It's against the rules to advertise trophy services here on PSNP and identifying people who have used trophy services will get people removed from the leaderboards.

 

The Cheater Remover team isn't about to identify all their tools for finding people using trophy services, but I will say two very amusing situations are when a bad trophy services pops all the trophies seconds apart and the other is when the trophy service just tells a Cheater Remover who has used their services. Both make for some great entertainment.

Twist Ending: The seller is actually a member of the CRT and the whole listing is a honeypot to remove people from the leaderboards.

I don't think it's any more immoral than dumping hundreds of dollars on Rata games to pump your profile full of easy trophies.

I wouldn't use these services. There's no real guarantee they are legit and you may end up with cheated trophies or a lost account, and then you're out of luck.

Immoral? Buying a game for sale, playing it to its completion legitimately, enjoying it, is immoral? Just because trophy elitists here try to determine that? 
 

Making me nervous for the day of judgment, should have never fallen for Freddy Spaghetti...

Except there's a huge difference here.  Someone dumping hundreds of dollars on Rata games is actually putting in the minimal effort to earn the trophies.  People paying someone to unlock trophies for them is not.  Nothing immoral about earning something honestly even if it's low effort.

I would be more afraid of the fact that you'll have to give these people some private info to make the purchase.

Going on ebay and giving someone money can also qualify as "minimal effort", certainly more effort than some of these games take.

Or they're Sony employees with the capabilities on their servers. Weren't there some EA insiders selling those super rare FUT cards not too long ago?

 

Or you know... it's just a scam.
