    paying for trophies,really?

    I can't believe some people out their are willing to pay for somebody to plat a game for them,and the amount of money they are willing to spend on a plat that has no value is laughable.I know sharing your psn login info is against the t.o.s so how hasn't this guy had his account banned.

    He's so good though. He got all my platinums for me and I only had to pay him $200!

    It's capitalism at work. He is offering his services as a gamer in return for compensation. If there is a demand for such services then he makes money. To my knowledge, there's no law that says he can't do this and he's not sharing his log on details and you can only assume that people buying his services are providing him their log on details, a pretty big assumption considering that anyone can go over to a friends place and log on to their own PSN account via a friends' PS3.

    And thanks to people such as bobbyblitzed that want to bitch and moan about it, he also gets free advertising for his service.

    It's quite understandable really. You can't say it's good or bad because it all depends on society. If people want something, there's always at least "someone" willing to give them that something for a price. In this case trophies = money. Transactions like money involving is pretty much a common thing to do... Everybody wants money

    In my opinion, what someone does with their own money is their business. It is not like being a certain rank in the world entitles you to prizes or some type of reward. If people want to spend hundreds to thousands of dollars to pay someone else to play games so that they don't have to that that is their decision.

    1~15hour plats= 50$
    Wow really? $50? I believe that's a bit too much for a 1-15 hour plat. $10 would be more reasonable.

    I think I would much rather purchase another game than pay for a platinum..

    It's just a damn number next to a picture in the end ><

    In reality, it should be charged by the hour and not by the amount of time needed to get the plat. If he charges in brackets such as 1-15 hours and 15-30 hours it can lead to "padding" of the platinum by letting the game idle for several hours in order to force the charge into a higher bracket.

    If the system were changed to a 'by the hour', it would be much more reasonable at shorter platinums as well as longer platinums.

    Actually that is a good deal taking basic economics into account. In Canada minimum wage on my part of the country is around 10 dollars, so using that as a baseline, your paying less than minimum wage on the service if it takes him more than 5 hours to finish the game. 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
