First Documented inFAMOUS: Second Son Platinum Trophy Achieved in “Less than 30 Hours”

on March 17, 2014 4:49 AM

inFAMOUS: Second Son is still four days away from its official release, but PSN user Tevinwade already managed to grab the game’s platinum trophy, posting about his achievement on Reddit.

Tevinwade claims that the game was so fun that he couldn’t stop himself, so he slept only about six hours during his playthrough, achieving the trophy in less than 30 hours of gameplay. At the moment the trophy is obviously marked as “Ultra Rare” with 0.4% users having reached the goal.

We verified his trophy on the official PlayStation website, and while we can’t find out the exact time in which he started playing, his first trophy (a secret bronze) was earned on March 15th at 4:20 PM EDT. The platinum was achieved on at 1:01 AM EDT on March 17th, for a total of a little over 32 hours, which matches his estimate counting the time spent sleeping.

We also learn that it takes between 15 and 20 hours to 100% a single playthrough, depending on whether you’re evil or good, and that after doing so there’s not much to do besides restarting with the opposite karma, even if random enemies still appear, so there are still chances to fight.

Of course timings can easily vary from person to person, and they’ll probably also depend on how much time you’ll spend gawking at the beautiful graphics of the game.

Below you can see a screenshot of his trophy.
