After wrapping up its first Denver outing this weekend, the DreamHack tournament series awarded the champions of their various fighting game events with unique trophies that featured moving parts and the logo of each respective title. Unfortunately, these prizes soon began to fall apart.
The end of a Tekken 7 tournament has sparked some wild speculation about what, exactly, a trophy plaque says. When the winners got on stage at South East Asia Major last Sunday, the tournament organizers handed the first-place cup to Byeong “Qudans” Mun Son. Then, they told him to turn it around so the plaque couldn’t…
The first official Fight of Gods tournament will award each of its top three finalists with a crown of thorns. The blasphemous Steam release pits deities like Odin, Amaterasu, and Jesus Christ against one another in immortal combat, and the developers are certainly leaning into its playfully sacrilegious themes with…
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.
My favorite trophies and achievements in video games are the gimmick-based ones. They’re not about finishing a level or getting a certain amount of headshots. They’re about doing something specific, often something outlandish, silly, deliberately provocative, or plain screwed up. They can add levity to a sober gaming…
In the weeks since Super Meat Boy has been on PS4 and Vita, only four people have picked up the platinum trophy. That list might not get much longer, given how difficult it is. Why? You have to beat every world in the game without dying. Only 0.8% did this on Steam, a world where it’s easy to cheat at achievements.
SOMA is a standout game, and one of the many ways it distinguishes itself is through its restrained use of achievements. There are 10 on Steam (or 10 trophies on PlayStation), and each is nothing more than a progress marker. They come infrequently and unexpectedly. I wasn’t sure when one would pop up or why. They…
Yeah, I know, they're called trophies on PlayStation. Achievements, trophies... whatever you want to call them, Helldivers has some of the funniest I've seen in a while.
If you're like me, you're not playing Dragon Age to save the world. You're playing Dragon Age to get to know some buddies, and maybe even to smooch someone.

Achievement reveals have lost some of their appeal here over the years. But then I see the list for South Park: The Stick of Truth and I feel compelled to share it. Here's the very first one, for 15 Gamerscore. "New Kid on the Block: Join the KKK."
Hakoom, one of the more prolific and visible trophy hunters in the PlayStation Network, just broke through to level 100—a rank that requires a user to win some 30,000 trophies. Three others have also breached the 99 barrier, thought to be the limit when PSN instituted trophy support back in mid-2008.
Trophies on the PlayStation 4 are coming back with a twist. Sony's new console won't just store your achievements—it'll tell you the rarity of each Trophy you earn.
Every Call Of Duty has its required stealth mission, and the "don't get caught" achievement to go with it. The Jungle Ghosts achievement is somewhat frustrating to get, but check out this video and you'll ghost right through it.
My name is Richard and I have a problem. When it comes to games, I am a completionist. If there is a nook left unexplored or some random item that needs to be collected, I feel compelled to spend hours getting the job done.
Xbox360Achievements.org and PS3Trophies.org have been tapped to draw up the achievements and trophies in GRID 2, due for release by the end of March. Publisher Codemasters and the two sites made a joint announcement of the team-up yesterday.
We've all noticed that Achievements, Trophies and other game-specific accomplishments don't mean squat in the real world, right? You can't go to your local video game store and say, "Hey, I've Platinum-ed in Uncharted 3; can I get a copy of Starhawk, please?"
