lukey52 Posted January 19, 2011 Share Posted January 19, 2011 (edited) The servers have now closed, therefore the Platinum is unobtainable if you didn't get the online trophies before that happened. This guide is entirely my own work (Lukey52) and may not be used on any site but ps3trophies.org. Overview: Estimated Difficulty: 5 Offline Trophies: 24 Online Trophies: 23 - Unobtainable Approximate Time: 40-50 hours Minimum Number of Playthroughs Needed: 1 (although this is pretty much impossible) Missable Trophies: 0 (all levels can be replayed) Glitched Trophies: 0 Cheats Disable Trophies?: No known cheats Difficulty Affect Trophies: No difficulty trophies Trophy Breakdown: 36 , 7 , 3 , 1 LittleBigPlanet 2 is the eagerly awaited sequel by Media Molecule. From the get go you dive right back into the world of LittleBigPlanet. Those of you who played the original have the option to load your player profile which gives you all your old costumes and levels you built. Because of the incredible versatility that this game has, you're able to play all original community levels (some 3.5 million!). The trophy list shouldn't create too many problems for people but it requires more effort than the original. Note that some trophies are listed as offline (such as Prize Collector and Uber Prize Collector) because although a lot easier online, if you own 4 controllers it's possible to do it offline. Walkthrough: The game is very heavily online orientated with its trophy structure so a decent internet connection is a must. You don't need an Eye Toy or the PlayStation Move in order to earn platinum. At the very least you'll need 2 controllers, however some trophies can be obtained offline if you have 4 controllers which saves finding boosting partners. The 5 difficulty rating comes mostly from the trophy requiring you to ace all levels. The approximate time to platinum is high because you'll need to spend 24 hours alone in create mode, although if you use the turbo controller trick, the active time you'd be playing the game will be around the 20-30 hour mark. It is possible to complete all story related trophies in one playthrough, however collecting all bubbles will require up to 4 people, and if you are going for ace, for no one to die on each level. It is therefore advisable to just enjoy the story once, then when you know the level layout, going for ace. Finally hook up online with players to knock out the prize bubbles. Throughout the guide where you see words in blue you'll find links to various other pages, the boosting page, prize bubble guide etc. The trophies can be broken down into the 4 steps detailed below: Pre-step: Step One (The Story): To begin with you'll want to play through the story from start to finish. Doing this will earn you the 6 story related trophies detailed in the story mode section. While playing through you will without fail kill 20 monsters for Monster Masher. Unless you are ignoring all prize bubbles you're likely to also pick up the trophy for collecting 50% of them (Prize Collector). When you reach the level Gripple Grapple take the time to kill yourself 20 times at the start of the level for Mortal Coil Shuffler Extraordinaire. After finishing the story you'll want to work on completing every level without dying for Ace Story Mode. After doing this for every level you'll have a good idea which 10 levels you wish to do for Aces in Spades. Be sure to check the guide for a way to make your life easier with this trophy. Step Two (Online - Story and Level Creation): - Unobtainable Leading on from the story you'll want to do the 2 online story related trophies. These involve you getting into the top 50% and 25% of the online scoreboard for a story level. This doesn't require another player but you'll need to be online for it to count. Following this you'll want to move on to the online create trophies. Publishing your first level and making it a versus map as well as giving it a custom picture will unlock Step into my Arena, Community Spirit and Custom Badger respectively. After this create another level and put a level link in it. Link to the level you just published and then publish it to unlock A Series of Tubes. At this point you'll want to get your level on the level 4 level boosting thread for 50 Unique Players. Now you need to wait a week for Long Term Publisher. Step Three (Online - Multiplayer): - Unobtainable Moving on from this we'll work on the community related online trophies. You're going to need a boosting partner for 25 Online Versus Wins. Finally you can start to enjoy yourself. You're going to need to spend 5 active hours playing levels for U Know U A Playa. You need to complete (that is get to the scoreboard) on 75 levels in order to get Play 25 Community Levels and Play 75 Community Levels. Each time you play a level, remember to give it a rating (Yay or Boo) to go towards the 160 needed for 40 Yays or Boos and 160 Yays or Boos . After doing the 75 levels fully, search for the most recently published levels that have less than 10 plays. Join them and give a rating (you don't have to finish the level). This is needed for The Votarator 5 and The Votarator 50 as well as going towards the 160 needed altogether. Don't forget that on the way to the 160 ratings you'll want to Dive In 25 times with random people. Step Four (Mop Up): Finally it's time to mop up the remaining trophies, of which there are a fair few. You're going to want to go back to the create mode to work towards 24 hours of active create time for 1440 Minutes of Create. Having a turbo controller will make your life much easier. There are 3 trophies related to time and date. Through simply altering your PS3's clock in the XMB you'll unlock Who Needs Breakfast?, Just... One... More... Go... and A Game A Day Keeps The Doctor Away. You'll then want to pick up any trophies you've not achieved thus far working on the others. For example I'm positive you'll have changed outfit, but if not do that for Snappy Dresser. You'll also have a number of easy trophies to finish up such as writing a review for a community level for Journalistical and uploading a photo for Paparazzo. - Unobtainable If you've got 2 controllers you can also get together with another person who has two to knock out the double slap for Turbo Slapper and the 4x grapple chain for Grapple Hooked. Of course if you already have 4 controllers you can do this yourself. For a boosting partner head over to this thread. Edited September 13, 2021 by Terminator Added server closure notices.
