The OG platinum trophy image

Wow, that's really interesting! I never knew about that. The final design goes with the other trophy images much better, though. :P

Wow, I heard the original was changed, but I never knew it used to be a purple crown. xD Looks like something you'd seen on a fancy bottle of booze. :P 

Image result for crown royal

Kinda glad they changed it. 😅

What game(s) have/had this image?

 

At the time none did, I believe only Super Stardust HD was the only game with a trophy list and it didn't have a platinum, nontheless the image file was still in the PS3 2.40 firmware for whenever games would eventually use that image for platinum

Saved the image for posterity. Thanks for sharing. Love to see they bring it back for special occasions.

That is so tacky but I think it'd be more fun to get platinums if they looked like that lol.

Woah, I've never noticed that! The devs totally made their own stylized version of it for that game xD A nice easter egg from Sony Japan for sure

That's different. I didn't know platinum trophies started out with that image. Kind of funny. 🙂

That looks pink to me (hot pink) more than purple

Don't like it and would like a redesign of the current one tbh.  Maybe make it look like the champions league trophy.

So the only actual explanation for platinums from Sony hasn’t changed since the original announcement, huh?

 

”You get the platinum trophy for getting all the other trophies in the game.”

 

So all the interpretations people have done about getting platinums for accomplishing everything in a game are total fabrications. Cool, now we can all be on the same page.

Someone asked about this a few weeks ago.

@gamingslegend just in case you're still looking.

Thanks! Someone posted one in that thread but this is even better.

Imagine Sony reusing that trophy if you 100% every game in a franchise...

That would be awesome if it was given for a 100% complete trophy list.

Yeah I can see why it was changed to what is now xD. But cool we have some history of the platinum trophy

@Sly Ripper was this taken directly from 2.40 through file access or something? Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think this image just came from somewhere around the internet. If so, any of the other ranks have different icons? (Gold, Silver, Bronze)

If that had been the image used all of these years and they tried to change it to the current one, you know we'd all be up in arms about it and defending "the crown".  :)

 

But, as it is, it looks a little goofy for a platinum trophy.
