    What people do with their money is their choice. There's lots of better ways to spend money, but can't stop people. The desperate are a strange folk.

    This is nothing new; I've collected trophies for practically everyone on PSN with level 50+ at one time or another.

    LOL to everyone in this thread. I didnt want to quote everyone, so i decided to pick a few and comment on them

    Dude... FAIL. As the dude with the "sig of coffee" said, its just a image.
    Next, coffee may be a "drug", although almost anything can be considered a drug. Is adrenaline a drug? People go out seeking that almost everyday. Also, is the drug coffee unhealthy? (lets also note its the caffeine in the coffee)

    I agree with this. Like others have said, its someone elses money, and doesnt effect me in the least. Although you may feel its stupid and a waste of money, the value is dependent on the person selling the service.

    I agree with this.

    And thanks to people such as bobbyblitzed that want to bitch and moan about it, he also gets free advertising for his service.
    I know this topic is frowned upon, but this user hit the nail on the head. This is what people pay for all the time (a service)

    ALso, lets note that no one will know (unless the user makes it obvious). SO althought you think its stupid, no one is dumb enough to flaunt their cheating for trophies

    Yes, its what they want to spend their money on

This is of course assuming its done legit and not with any hacking/save file tricks. Then if you pay $500 dollars for a 100 hour+ plat, well, the gap widens even further that he'd have to beat it in 50 hours just to be making minimum wage.

    So for those who don't want to play their own games your actually getting a deal, and as he said on his site the prices are negotiable. Funny this comes up since someone added me to PSN the other day and offered to pay me 10 British pounds to 100% Back to the Future for them. I feel insulted to be paid so little, even though I promptly told him no and deleted him. LOL
    Well, if this is your skill, then its perfect for you. I would do this if i could. Of course its frowned upon...

    the funniest part to me is the fact that he is probably using save file tricks for nearly every game he offers this on. Hes more than likely putting zero time and/or work into his 'service' at all.

    Then he is making some sweet bank for it, and all the power to him.

    Pride? LOL. Some people take pride in trophies, and some dont. Some people like to take the easy way out and still brag about their trophies.

    Real losers? Its natural to brag about achievments. If the trophies were earned legit, i feel its worth bragging about. Can i note there are ways to make it where no one knows if it was legit or not. How does trophies decide how good you are? ITs proof you can do certain things (some are harder than others).

    That game was so easy and fun. If i was you, make sure to pay per trophy. There was only one trophy that caused me a hard time, and thats the carnival game "knock down the cans".

    Dont let him charge you too much for that title.

    IMO...this is a pointless thread. It has been brought up many times before for other users. Yes, there are cheaters/hackers/people who pay for trophies all the time. If we wanted to, we could make a thread about all of them. Putting it up isn't going to stop them. Even if you said something to them, it wouldn't stop them. As much as you may not like it, it will happen regardlessly. With that said, his money so he shall do with it what he feels. No different than if somebody decided to go out and spend their money on a pink pig themed VW Beetle. May be stupid to us, but to them, it was worth it.

    Am going to put my 2 in. My PS+ was paid for by a person that wanted 2 I had already done. My NCAA Football 12 was paid for by people that wanted a certain game done. Before that, I took for . I started charging for my services. Why let the locall game shop charge you for a game you may not complete but want on your list? You still paying for trophies either way. Just paying someone else to do it for you.

    Hello.

    Must admit after not being able to plat SW:TFU, i was thinking, maybe someone could do it for me. But i then decided. Rather have a failed atempt at a plat on my list, than a plat i didnt earn.

    A guy paid me 20 for the Sly 3 plat, since I wanted to go on a trip every bit on money counted
    It's not a thing I like to do though, why pay for trophies? I look at my collection and I see MY hard work ._. I'm not better than anyone by having more or less trophies
