Sony Pulls 'Easiest PS4 Platinum Trophy' Game From Store

Sony today pulled a game from the PlayStation Network that claimed to be the “easiest PS4 Platinum trophy,” allowing a player to earn one of the prized achievements by playing for just a few minutes. The game, called 1000 Top Rated, was online for two days before Sony yanked it.

1000 Top Rated tasked players with solving a series of sliding image puzzles and liberally tossed trophies their way for simple tasks such as starting the game. While the game’s trailer advertised that players could get their platinum trophy in one hour, players on YouTube posted walkthroughs that brought the time down to 20 minutes.


Games like 1000 Top Rated raise questions about quality control on the PSN and what measures Sony takes to approve games. Last year, a game with apparently stolen assets reached the store while games like Life of Black Tiger drew criticism for a lack of quality.

Thank god I already got my Platinum trophy! Also, it’s ★★★★★ 1000 Top Rated. Those stars really make the game unique.

Serious question though: Did the Playstation Youtube channel upload a trailer for this one? If so, was it this one posted here? Just... wow. That’s all I can say.

Also, didn’t Nier make it possible to buy trophies? I can’t remember which game it was but I think something similar happened recently with a AAA title.
