INTRODUCTION

NBA Live 10 is your average basketball game. It's great game and will keep you entertained for hours on end if you're an avid basketball fan. If you're a fan of basketball and gaming, the trophies will come with no problem. The trophies are all very simple to get. Nothing is too difficult. A few trophies will come while playing naturally. Trophies that will require you to get a certain amount of stats for a player can be a pain, but that is easily fixed when adjust the sliders (more info below). Online will most likely take up the majority of your time.

WALKTHROUGH

The following steps are will help you obtain the in the quickest time possible. If you follow the steps, you should be able to get the plat in the amount of time suggested (15-20 hours).

Step One: Play A Game
I recommend that you first take some time to just play the game normally and get a feel for the game. Here you should be able to get From Downtown Rookie and Come Fly With Me. You can also upload and send a replay to EASW for Highlight Maker. Your first game should net you 3 trophies.

Step Two: Online and Adidas Live Run
If you're going for the Platinum, I strongly suggest you go for online trophies as early as possible. EA servers are unpredictable, so it's better to be safe than sorry. The online trophies are the most time consuming ones of the game. Find a boosting partner and get The Grinder and Online Win Streak trophies. Check the trophy guide for more information regarding The Grinder. Also, join an Adidas Live Squad and get the adidas LIVE Run Victory and adidas LIVE Run MVP trophies. You should be able to obtain all seven of your online trophies in this step.

You can find the trophy boosting thread here and the Adidas Live Run thread here.

Step Three: Dynasty
This step is actually real quick and simple. For Champion, select the LA Lakers or Boston Celtics and simulate the whole season up to the playoffs. Save after the season ends if you end up making the playoffs. I suggest turning autosave off at this point in case you end up losing the a series in the playoffs. Every time you win a round, save. You will not need to play any of the games. You can simply just simulate each series, including the final round. You only need to win the championship.

Step Four: Player Specific Trophies
There are some trophies that require you to get a certain amount of stats for an elite NBA player. Some of these will be a challenge, but with a few tweaks in the sliders (see below), the trophies will come without much trouble.

Step Five: Clean-Up
After all the above, you may still have some extra trophies that need to be taken care of. If you missed any, you can get them in Exhibition. Remember the settings can be tweaked in order to obtain the trophies more easily.


EXTRA INFORMATION

  • For all but one of the offline trophies (David and Goliath), set your time to 12 minutes and set your difficulty at Rookie for a better outcome.
  • For the online trophies, you can quit the games at 2:25.
  • Sliders: Have fouls set to 0. Nothing is more aggravating than getting called for reaching in when trying to get Broys 10 steals. For the user sliders, have all of your settings at 100. Occasionally, you'll want to have a couple at 0. For CPU sliders, you will want to do the opposite - have them at 0. In some cases, you'll have to change a couple to 100.

There you have it. If you follow these steps, you should have the in no time.

34 trophies ( 18  12  )

  • Earn All NBA LIVE 10 Trophies

    Get all of the other trophies for the Platinum to unlock.

  • Win a solo game in overtime vs. the CPU.

    Make sure that the game is tied at the end of the first four quarters and then win in overtime. Can be done in conjunction with "Game Over In A Flash"

  • Defeat the Lakers with the Kings on Superstar difficulty in a solo game vs. the CPU.

    Put it on Superstar difficulty and play as the Sacremento Kings against the LA Lakers. Put it on 2 minute quarters, rules off, User sliders all the way to the right and CPU sliders all the way to the left so that they don't make any shots. With the sliders all the way down they won't try to tackle you. Just score a few baskets and then hold the ball (shot clock will be off so there won't be a violation).

  • Play 15 ranked matches online.

    Can be done in conjunction with "Online Win Streak". If boosting this should get you 6 of the 15 games. After that, take it in turns with your partner to pause and quit after the 2m30 mark of the first quarter. Repeat until the trophy pops up.

  • Score 100 points in a single solo game with a single player.

    Score 100 points in a single game. This can be done in conjunction with any of the points scoring trophies, simply keep playing after unlocking the 81 point trophy and go until you get 100.

  • Score a 3 point shot for the first time in a single solo game.

    Score from outside the marked area

    See Connect with D-Wade.

    Can be done in conjunction with "Ice Water"

  • Hit a buzzer beater with Dwyane Wade (NBA) in double overtime in a single solo game.

    Play as the Miami Heat (either home or away) with Dwayne Wade on player lock and make sure the game is tied after the first four quarters and the first period of overtime. You must then score on the buzzer at the end of the second period of overtime.

    Best way is to hang onto the ball outside the marked area and then shoot for 3 points just as the clock reaches 1 second so that it flies in after the buzzer. It doesn't matter if you don't score in the second overtime, I ended up getting it in the 7th overtime. Just hang onto the ball for the whole 2 minutes, then shoot at the end. If you do miss, then it will just go to another overtime period.

  • Score 81 points with Kobe Bryant (NBA) against the Raptors in a single solo game.

    Play as LA Lakers against Toronto Raptors and put Kobe Bryant on player lock and press X to get the ball passed to him on each play. Keep scoring until you reach 81 points. If you keep going to 100 you will also get "Stilt 100"

  • Score 50 points with LeBron James (NBA) against the New Jersey Nets in a single solo game.

    Play as Cleveland Cavelliers against New Jersey Nets, put LeBron James on player lock and press X to get the ball passed to him on each play. Keep scoring until you reach 50 points. If you dunk 10 of them it will also get "Sprite's Dynamic 10"

  • Score 55 points in New York with Kobe Bryant (NBA) against the Knicks in a single solo game.

    Play as LA Lakers with New York Nicks as the HOME team and put Kobe Bryant on layer lock and press X to get the ball passed to him on each play. Keep scoring until you reach 55 points. Scoring some off the backboard will help with "Timmy D"

  • Score 55 points in Minnesota with Tony Parker (NBA) in a single solo game.

    Play as San Antonio Spurs with Minnesota Timberwolves as the HOME team and put Tony Parker on player lock and press X to get the ball passed to him on each play. Keep scoring until you reach 55 points.

  • Get 27 rebounds in Chicago with Marcus Camby (NBA) in a single solo game.

    Play as LA Clippers against anyone and put Marcus Camby on player lock.

    The best way to do this is to stay under the basket you're shooting towards. Let the other team have possession then when you get it, shoot from wherever you are (with Rules off there will be no "Out of Bounds". Let the ball go to the back of the court then you can pick up the easy rebound. Repeat this until you get 27 (you can check your progress on the 'Stats' menu when paused)

  • Get 10 blocks in Oklahoma City with Dwight Howard (NBA) in a single solo game.

    Play as Orlando Magic with Oklahoma City Thunder as the HOME team and put Dwight Howard on player lock. There are two main tactics for this one:

    1. Stand under your basket and block any shots that come in

    2. Follow around the player with the ball and try to block his shots.

    Best tip for this is to alter the sliders so that CPU always dunk or lay-up and that their offensive rebounding is on full and your defensive rebounding is on zero. That way you can just hang out under the basket and they will dunk or lay-up all shots and you can block them, then they will most likely get the rebound and try another dunk. With Rules set off there will be no "Goaltending" foul called. Repeat until you have 10 blocks (you can check your progress on the 'Stats' menu when paused). This will also get you "adidas Triple Block"

  • Get 10 steals against the Wizards with Brandon Roy (NBA) in a single solo game.

    Play as Portland Trail Blazers against the Washington Wizards and put Brandon Roy on player lock.

    Get in front of whoever has the ball and then repeatedly press Square until you knock the ball out of their hands, then make sure you pick it up. With Rules set off there will be no fouls called for this. Repeat until you have 10 steals (you can check your progress on the 'Stats' menu when paused).

  • Score 55 points against the Knicks with Dwyane Wade (NBA) in a single solo game.

    Play as Miami Heat against the New York Nicks and put Dwayne Wade on player lock and press X to get the ball passed to him. Keep scoring until you have 55 points.

  • Get your first triple-double in a single solo game.

    A triple-double is scoring double figures in three stat categories. These include Points, Assists Rebounds, Steals, Blocks. Score 10 quick points, then work on getting 10 in two of the other categories.

  • Win the championship in Dynasty Mode.

    This can be done very quickly. Make sure you set the play-offs to 1-1-1-1. Pick a good team like the LA Lakers of Cleveland Cavelliers and then simulate the entire regular season (move the calendar all the way through to April, then pick a date and choose "Simulate". It will then simulate through everything and as you're a good team you should make the play-offs. It only takes a few minutes, you may have to press X a few times to get rid of some things.

  • Score 5 shots off the backboard with a single player in a single solo game.

    Takes a bit of practice to do, the best method is using fade aways, either from a slight angle, or from straight on at the free-throw line. Can be done in conjunction with any of the scenario point scoring trophies.
