How Many of You REALLY Platinum'd the Game?

52 posts in this topic

Sadly, Jak II and Jak 3 both could have been prestigious Platinums, and by this I mean maybe around 10% of players could have scored the Platinum trophy, putting it in league with other difficult and/or time-consuming Platinums such as Final Fantasy XIII, Ni no Kuni, or L.A. Noire.  But of course, both games have the infinite Precursor Orb glitch that allows the player to acquire all of the Precursor Orbs needed without actually putting in the effort of earning them the way Naughty Dog intended.

 

So how many of you "actually" earned the Platinum trophy in either game?  This means earning Gold on all races and challenges, as well as searching every nook and cranny for Orbs that are just lying out without the assistance of the infinite Precursor Orb glitch?

 

 

EDIT:  Upon reading the responses, I can understand if you used the glitch to Platinum either game if you've done it fairly on the PS2.  However, if you utilized the glitch to acquire all of the Precursor Orbs without having dedicated yourself to braving the aggravation that others experienced in order to achieve the game's highest honor at some point in the past, I only have this to say:

I did :D.......no. I used the glitch. But, I did get gold on the races on the PS2. Which is why I chose to do the glitch this time around.

I did it legit for the PS2 with Jak 3 but on the PS3 I used the orb glitch for Jak 2 then tried to do as much as I could from memory for Jak 3 then used the glitch. I got all orbs fairly in Jak & Daxter the Precursor Legacy though xD.

I got the orbs legitally back in Playstation 2 but when I obtain the collection I´m going to use the exploit because It was difficult that time I can´t do it all over again.

Totally abused that glitch. No hacks so its actually good by me. :blush:  You mentioned some really prestigious plat like Ni no kuni, L.A Noire, and FF 13. I got them all so I hope it balances all out  :D

I used the orb glitch, but I don't think it's shameful in any way. Naughty Dog left it in the HD version for a reason; it's as much a part of the game as the terrible mission checkpoints.

Infinite orb glitch FTW! xD, just think about it, we've saved many precious hours that we can now invest in other Platinums! It's a gem, really.

I actually worked my ass of for this platinum and got all the orbs by myself and Im not a cheater myself, I actually try to get these hard earned and rewarding platinums! And believe or not, I actually never knew about the orb glitch until after I got the jak 3 platinum ( I got the jak 3 plat before jak 2) and I was tempted to use it because I was really close on my ps2 version butthis time it was way easier than last time because I was a little boy back then. You can check ouy my profile as it took me about a month for jak 3 and 2 months for jak 2 (but I did take a big break during jak 2 so subract 2 weeks and 3 days)

Yeah I got this and Jak 3 legit, real easy and fun, glitching would have ruined the experience.

I personally didnt do these 2 games on PS3. I spent hundreds of hours on them in the PS2 era.

 

But even still, i did get a good laugh out of your examples of hard plats lol.

As for those that did use the glitch. theres nothing wrong with that. As someone once told me. Smarter not harder.

 

And as for the 10% thing. i feel most people that own this game/are being tracked by PSNP dont care for trophies. I.e Can you really consider it a 10% id give it more of a 20-23 range. in which its not really a note worthy plat. tbf it wasnt 1 to begin with. 

Im not saying you or anyone else on this thread that randy over telling people you did a game the longer/harder way are wrong. Just saying its nothing to write home about anyways. 

 

But thats just my opinion no reason to go spreading it around.

I technically did it legit, the game just glitched on me and I was unable to get the last few orbs. So I just reloaded an old save and did an easy mission for orbs to get it since I was unsure when I was glitched on it.

am i readin this wrong or has the OP typed that lanoire is difficult and hour consumin?... i found it quite easy and fookin amazin to play through

i played all 3 original versions of jak and daxter but they were never as difficult as both the hd versions, the races were easy and jaks hovercraft could take alot of damage, i completed each game in 1 to 2 days too so im sure the ps3 hd trilogy has had its difficulty raised... then theres the awful psvita hd trilogy port, it has gotta be even tougher not only due to an awful port but rubbish use of control features... it took me 2 weeks to finish it fully with gold for everythin, i was close to destroyin the game cartridge ffs lol... its put me off of playin on jak 3 but i'll eventually put in on and tear my hair out

also for anyone who doesnt think that all 3 games in the hd trilogy have had their difficulties raised- watch a few youtube clips of the races in jak 2 for the ps2 and then watch a few clips of the same races in jak 2 for the ps3/psvita versions and tell me the damage quota is the same, its not... in the original release jak can take lots of damage and full collisions makin the races easy, in the hd version jak can only take upto 6, 1 big collision and its race over, even gettin small shunts causes the hovercraft to smoke and slow in acceleration... im also usin my own knowledge of playin the original releases (which i still have) against the hd versions... another game that has had its difficulty raised is both versions of oddworld: strangers wrath hd but JAW stated it was slightly raised rather than sneakin it there

I used the glitch and I see that being as honest a way of getting it because it still takes time, so even the people that used the glitch actually Platinumed it as well buddy

I only played the PS2 versions. I earned all the gold medals from all the races in Jak II, but I couldn't find all of the precursor orbs in Jak 3.. I never knew of the glitch until recently...

I only have 6 platinum's which I've earned 100% legit. But if I were to be honest, I'd probably do the orb glitch, I'm not really a fan of 'collector' trophies, I like trophies that depend on your skill.

My plan (I'm going for the platinum now) is to do the best I can in each mini game (races, gun courses, etc.) until I get sick of it; hopefully getting at least silver. Then, I'll use the orb glitch to save myself hours upon hours of frustration trying to get 'perfect' times/scores.
