I did it. While the loading screen appears it takes 1 minute and 50 seconds you can watch youtube, Facebook, etc.

 

Well, kudos to you.

I still think it sucks, that the method is possible, because it lowers the "worth" of the platinum.

 

 

Anyway, I'll finally continue with XCOM after a one year break.

Cautionary tales for any Commanders out there who are super psyched by this exploit!

 

If you don't use the exploit when moving your people, and an alien pod finds you, they may shoot at any unflanked units of yours. Ask me how my Untouchables run ended :/

It is best to just use it even when moving and exposing alien pods. As they will not get a chance to shoot you this way. 

 

Faceless and Chryssalids will still have an opportunity to attack. When they shapeshift/unburrow, they will be allowed to move to your unit, and then attack. Nothing you can really do about it.  

 

Andromedon Robot Shells will also be given a chance to move and attack at the start of your turn following the turn you kill the pilot. Much easier to deal with by just staying out of their range.

 

 

I was getting the PsiGate, and was losing people to Chryssalids left and right. I had just a lowly Ranger left with a Magnetic Rifle. 7 damage to the GateKeeper. 6 of that negated by armor. 1 damage for 20+ turns. That mission took 54 turns. Occasionally I would move my unit because I knew there were more Chryssalids around and wanted to scout a way to make them revealed but not attack my unit. I couldn't find a solution. I just gave up and moved the Ranger next to PsiGate and let 3 Chryssalids attack. He dodged 2 of the attacks but took major damage by the third. Thankfully moving him there did reveal all 4 remaining enemy units.   

 

It's not fool proof, but if you can figure out a way to deal with the Faceless and Chryssalids, accept that loading times suck, and are patient, it makes the Plat a difficulty of like a 2/10. I save-scummed my way through the rest of the XCOM Enemy Unknown Plats because dammit it worked! I don't enjoy this game on harder difficulties where mission reward luck can mean failure. 

 

If you want something to do during the loading screens, pick up a PS VIta and play Zero Time Dilemma. Part of the 999 franchise, very straightforward platinum once you understand what the heck you're supposed to do.  I was able to complete the entire thing during one Commander Ironman playthrough's loading screens. It was free on PS+ a while back check your backlog.

Just posting to say this still works and if you upgrade your PS4 with a SSD the load times are much better, like 20-30 seconds.

Thanks for your answer, because I tried the glitch on the digital version of the game and it's not working (I'm surely doing something wrong, I'm so bad at triggering glitches lol or it only works on retail version..). 

 

My PS4 is also very weird, bought it at D1 in 2013, more than 2000 hours of lifetime, still working

Glitch or not, this platinum is pure hell either way.  Skip this game if you want to salvage your nerves.

It's not that bad. Comes down to learning the AI mechanics, oh and never use the specialist (useless class).

If you need a hand let me know, always happy to help a fellow Nova Scotian.

Truth be told the initial hurdle with Xcom is when you're just starting out and don't have the advanced weapons, armor, and skills that make things so much easier later on.

I'm all good man.  Gonna save this platinum for either my 11,000 trophy or Plat. # 250.  Or if I want to get real fancy, set it up so both of those accolades have this platinum.  :P And specialist VERY useful.  If you have one with good hack skill you can get intel and all kinds of bonuses hacking things during missions.  They are also great for deal big damage on robots.  Never count the specialist out!! 😉

 

TBH, Xcom: Enemy Unknown was the hardest of em all.   I still have nightmares where I am being chased through dark alleyways by monstrous XMB buttons. :ps::ninja: 

PS, where in NS are you?  I'm in Halifax.

In vanilla you can only max out a Sectopod hack attempt to around 75%ish (too much rng reliance for my taste, compared to a blue screen ranger using rapid fire).  Bonuses are nice, but survivability and being able to quickly kill pods is more important. Specialists are only able to attack a single enemy per turn, whereas every other unit can target multiples, increasing your squad's overall damage per turn. 

 

If we're talking DLC, the specialists are completely outclassed by reapers, who can also hack.

 

PS, Just outside of Parrsboro

It should still work.  It has been fixed on WOTC dlc.  If youare going for the plat or 100%... you are in for a ride with or without exploit.  If you are not an Xcom fan and going for plat. I recommend skipping this game.. but it's your call.

It was still working in August of this year. I did a playthough and popped a lot of the difficult trophies using the always your turn exploit.
