How do some people already have the plat if the game hasn't been released yet?

HACKERS!!!!

 

;)

 

But seriously: never heard about press releases, copies for youtubers/influencers, reviewers or simply gifts to some "celebrities" (like here on PSNP? ;) ).

It's not the first time, lol.

Online sites in the UK mostly send games out a few days before release. 

 

Mine from ShopTo came about an hour ago.

Amazon accidentally sent me my preorder of Horiizon Zero Dawn five days early, could be some cases of things like that. I didn't complain.

Yeah, but if you click on any trophy you'll see a ton of people who has earned it already, for example the prologue tropyh: https://psnprofiles.com/trophy/9955-death-stranding/2-delivering-is-what-i-do

Copies of the game have been out for weeks to game review companies and content creators.  So it doesn't surprise me that a few put the time into it to platinum it.

Yep, that's the one.

 

I usually go for them or Simplygames. But I noticed yesterday Simplygames were saying they wouldn't be sending it out until this morning. 

 

ShopTo ended up sending it yesterday afternoon and it came today.

Simplygames also tries to send games out early. They didn't do it with Death Stranding, but just recently I got Super Monkey Ball 5 days before release

 

GAME is probably the worst place to buy games

In a small Town called Siegen in Germany, a Giant Store is selling it together with Need for Speed, because they want to have the money. GameStop is next to them and isn’t selling it until tomorrow.

Yeah they do the same.

 

ShopTo has a reward scheme too that can get the price down by a quid or so on each order. And they're usually cheaper than Game in the first place.

I also second that regarding Shopto! I always order from there unless there's a Special Edition that GAME has that I want. Death Stranding also arrived earlier for me too but I can't play it until Monday! 😭

I'm surprised the trophy time stamps have their actual date and time even though the list wasn't uploaded until a few hours ago...

Trophy timestamps are all saved locally. You just won't be able to sync them until the trophy list itself has been uploaded to PSN.

They're always saved to proper time regardless of when the list gets put up on the server.

Is that a real term? I've heard people say it, but I just thought it was another word for "shill".
