- Using the Black Market is not required for Platinum.
- You do not actually trade away your merchandise, the game gives copies of it to your friends periodically.
- The more people you boost with, the faster you will be done with this.
- Check Near often and look for "Game Goods" for Uncharted: Golden Abyss. These will either be bounties for you, or Fetishes, which are something else and unrelated to trophies.
How it works:
Go into Uncharted: Golden Abyss and click on the this icon:
It will ask if you want to check Near for bounty offers. Say yes.
It will gather location data and tell you to press the Update button on Near. Do that.
At the bottom, press "Discoveries". This is where you'll see Game Goods you've found. Your Black Market bounty offers will show up here.
If you have new bounties, you can go back into Uncharted and see. If not, you can leave and check back later or you can update your "Actively Seeking" preference.
When using the Black Market, you pick one of the five sets of bounties you're looking for. This becomes your "Actively Seeking" choice. You can only pick one at a time. If you're not having luck with the one you've got, switch to another by scrolling left and right. Put the set you want in the gold box in the middle of the screen.
If you change your Actively Seeking preference, make sure the Black Market asks you if you want to update Near before you exit. Do this.
Check back every hour if possible. Why? You can only update Near once every hour and Black Market offers found through Near only last for 3 hours. So check often. Plus, the more often people boosting load up their copy of Uncharted, the more likely they are to help others.
What to do:
If you want to boost, add your PSN ID to this thread. When adding others as friends, it's better to include a message like "black market boosting" in your friend request. Load up the game and check near often. Every hour if possible.
