Playstation 3 Trophy Cards
Playstation Network Trophy Cards
Now that the Playstation 3 has firmly established trophies into games it is time to get your very own trophy card which you can embed in your blog, your website, your forum signatures and even on your emails (if you so desire).
Playstation trophy card sites have gone through many changes since they started with some evolving into great sites and others just sinking into obscurity.
So without further ado, here are the choices of trophy cards to pick from.
Update: This article was wrote 4 years ago when trophies were first introduced on the Playstation 3, now trophies are also available on the Playstation Vita and also will be available on the Playstation 4. So these gamer cards are not really Playstation 3 Trophy Cards anymore they should now be referred to as Playstation Network Trophy Cards as all these cards WILL work for the PS3, the PS Vita and the soon to be available PS4.
One more thing, these sites seem to come and go and even the best of them die eventually.
PSNProfiles is now the number site for Playstation Network Trophy cards. It has everything a budding trophy hunter needs, guides, trophy cards and forums. The creators of this site have built a trophy hunters dream site by taking all the good ideas from all of the original great trophy hunter sites and building upon them. This is a site that looks like it is here to stay.
It is very easy to get a gamer card from this site, all you have to do is visit the site and on the main page insert your PSN name and it will create your card within seconds. Then all you do is click on the card link it creates and it will give you all the link codes you need to be able to use the card on forums, websites, blogs, etc.
Multi-System Gamer Card
For those of you with multi-systems eXophase.com does a card that covers PSN, Live and Steam. This card will show 2 accounts on one card and you can mix and match, my card shows 2 different PSN accounts. The card will show one account on the top and another account at the bottom. Here is the link:
Little Big Planet 1, 2 & 3
Although this isn't technically a trophy card it is a card that can aid you to get trophies. So if you are a Little Big Planet level creator and you have a gem of a level to show off but no one plays it just try using this card.
To create this card just go to http://lbp-hub.com/statistics.php scroll down the page to the section about Check Your Levels and you will find a box to enter your PSN ID. Once you have entered your ID it will show all the levels you have created and you will find an icon to click on to Generate Signature for each of your levels.
Sackboy is back and he’s brought along new friends!
PlayStation’s most imaginative franchise, LittleBigPlanet, is back with a new cast of playable plush characters in the biggest handcrafted adventure yet!
All the new characters are, like Sackboy, fully customizable and there will be plenty of quirky new costumes to collect in the game so you can express your own individuality.
Official Sony Trophy Card
This is the trophy card that I don't like. It is a semi-automatic updating card as in you have to visit your profile and click a link to update your psn stats (it also seems to update whenever you log into the official EU Playstation forums). On this site you can view your trophies and compare them with your PSN friends. There is no leaderboard and there is no way of comparing your trophies with people who aren't your friends. You also get auto-logged out of the site which is okay if you forget to log out, but it can log you out while you are trying to compare your trophies with people.
If you would like a card like this follow this link and sign in with your PSN account:-
Alternatively if you just want to check out other peoples trophies providing you know their PSN ID follow this link:
Battletracker was a good trophy site when it first started but ever since Sony changed the way trophies were saved on their servers Battletracker started picking up wrong information from it. It does automatically update your trophy card but it picks up the wrong trophies so it can display images of trophies you haven't got ... but ... the trophy amount and trophy score is always correct. It is also fairly erratic to when it updates.
There were three sites with the name PS3Trophies, .co.uk, .com and .org. All three are what is known as Trophy Whore Sites, ie sites built specifically to aid people in their trophy pursuits.
PS3Trophies.co.uk was the first ever PS3 trophy site and was the best for a long time, but it went through a bad time that virually killed it off and most of its membership left. Thankfully though PS3Trophies.co.uk has regained some of its former glory and is a good site once again and is fairly good for trophy hunting as you can view trophy lists and the trophies you don't have are greyed out so you know which trophies you need without the tedium of trying to figure it out on your XMB (your trophies do have to by synced for this to work). It also has a fairly good trophy card. Unfortunately the game database they are using is out of date so this feature only works on older games. Overall though the site is worth checking out. This site has gone and joined the other great sites in the PS3 trophy card graveyard.
PS3Trophies.org is more of a trophy list site (with forum) and has some of the best trophy guides around.
PS3Trophies.com's trophy cards are not too bad but they only update if someone clicks on your profile. But they do have a nice card that shows the trophies on the current game you are playing.
Trophy Card Poll
Please Note: LUSOGAMER was added after 218 votes had already been cast so it will be a late starter on the voting front.
Which is your favourite gamer card?
Trophy Card Graveyard
Your Gamer Cards
Your Gamer Cards is probably the best of the automatic update cards. The site is constantly being updated adding new features when required with the older less used features being dropped.
Once you have created your gamer card and Your Gamer Cards has you in their database you can search for yourself by PSN ID and check out your trophy list. Once in your trophy list if you click on one of the games it will take you to the game's trophy list and highlight the trophies you have achieved. This makes it very easy to tell which trophies you still need to work on (even the hidden trophies are shown). All the trophies also show how many people (that are in your Gamer Cards database) have earned it, together with a percentage of total people who have it and from that it will tell you how easy said trophy is.
One of the new features of Your Gamer Cards site is the ability to leave tips for individual trophies. Unfortunately, at the moment this is a very under utilized feature, but as more people find out about it the more chance that that feature will become more popular.
Update: In the last six months Your Gamer Cards has had a lot of problems with their site going down and it is looking more and more like it is joining the ever increasing number of dead gamer cards sites.
LUSOGAMER (now known as VIDEOGAMER) is a Portuguese site but it is really easy to get a gamer card from. All you do is enter your PSN ID and click on the generate button and it will make you a gamer card just like the one above. Like most of the best gamer cards this one is automatic updating, so if you like the card go check out the site. This card also updates slightly faster than the Your Gamer Cards card. Here is the link:
Update: This card seems to have stopped working, the link to the card generator works but the webpage doesn't seem to work. It is looking more and more doubtful that this error will be fixed as it has now not been working for over 3 months.
Playstation 3 Trophy Card - IT IS SERIOUSLY LOOKING LIKE THIS SITE IS DEAD AND BURIED AS THE LINK NO LONGER WORKS
One of the most popular of the Playstation 3 Trophy Cards is the one that is powered by MMOS. The site is basically a trophy card generator and a leaderboard and it has created over 200,000 trophy cards for PS3 users and the leaderboard is very competitive. This card is a true trophy whore card, so if you are just a casual trophy collector like me you will be amazed at how badly you place on the leaderboard. Another thing to consider is that 200,000 is a small fraction of all PS3 users and if you think you place badly on this leaderboard just think how badly you would place if every PS3 user had signed up for this site.
This site stopped has stopped working, it seems that most of the users have migrated to Your Gamer Cards.
Here is the link just in case it starts working again:-
Total Music Gaming - THIS SITE ALSO SEEMS THAT IT IS DEAD AND BURIED.
Total Music Gaming is a site dedicated to music gaming, ie games like Singstar, Band Hero and DJ Hero. At this site you can compare scores with your friends, get a gaming card like the one shown and generally communicate with the music gaming community. I have only just signed up for the site and haven't yet played a music game so I can't give a full review of the site. But if music gaming is your thing I'm sure you will enjoy this site.
Easiest Trophy Game EVER
Most trophy hunters are always searching for an easy trophy game ... well have no fear, the answer is here!
And the answer is ...
Hannah Montana, the easiest and most controversial of the trophy games ... if you want an easy platinum trophy then look no further than this game. You are not only guaranteed to get the platinum but you are also guaranteed a lot of ridicule from people on your friends list. So if you have a load of quiet people on your friends list, playing this game is guaranteed to liven a few of them up ... go ahead, give it a go and earn yourself the title of being a true 'Trophy Whore'.
Actually Hannah Montana is no longer the easiest trophy game, but it does still deserve a mention as it held the easiest trophy game crown for such a long time.
Megamind on the other hand is the true definition of an easy trophy game ... in fact it is the easiest as it is easily achieveable in 3 hours which is twice as quick as Terminator Salvation which is a 6 hour platinum.
Are you BRAVE enough to play Hannah Montana?
