Introduction: Welcome to TV Superstars! This is a Playstation Move Required game where you play as characters in TV/game shows that resemble many popular shows you would see on television. There are a total of six shows that you will replay several times on the way to Platinum. Overall, it can sometimes be a fun and rewarding game to play with some friends, but it can become quite frustrating in some parts that are much more difficult/tedious than they need to be. The controls are not as tight as they should be with the Move controller and the game really comes across as more of a demo of mini-games, rather than a title you would want to sink a lot of time into. The good thing is that the Platinum for this game is fairly easy, all offline, and very attainable for anyone willing to put in a little bit of time and effort.
Step 1: Create 8 Custom Characters: This step should only take 20-30 minutes to complete and will net you three trophies: “A New Face”, “Fabulous Four!”,& ”Eight's Great!”. This step is also very helpful in the process, as several of the shows are much easier/faster to complete with more characters. The loading times in this game can sometimes take a while, so it is best to play with at least four of your custom characters whenever possible in order to minimize restarts. Also, there have been reports that some trophies will not pop if you are using any of the default characters instead of the custom characters, so play it safe and only use custom characters when you are playing.
Step 2: Play Each Game/Show At Least Twice With The Same Team: This step will get you familiar with the game and allow you to knock out several of the team and some of the individual game trophies along the way. It is best to do this with a friend locally (as there is no online option), but it can also be done solo. If playing by yourself, you probably won’t get many of the “great scores” you’ll eventually need, but the only game/show you can actually even fail are the STAA commercials (which force you to play with one controller anyway). While completing this step, you’ll get “Team Players!”, “Famous for 60 Minutes!”, “Teamwork!”, “Dream Team!”, “Getting Started In The Fame Game”, as well as a few other trophies on the individual games/shows themselves.
Step 3: Complete All Of The Miscellaneous Team/Individual Gameplay Trophies: In this step, you’ll want to set-up several short games with various numbers of players. You’ll need to play games with 2 vs 2 (same team wins twice), 2 vs 1, 1 vs 1, 4-for-all, and 3-for-all for several trophies (“Two By Two”, “In Your Faces!”, “Outnumbered”, “Competition”, “Quartet”, & “Trio”, respectively). I suggest using the same 3 or 4 characters through all of these set-ups, as you’ll eventually want to have 4 upgraded players to give you more chances at getting great scores in all of the games. While going for these trophies, you should also try to complete the 2, 3, & 5 consecutive days played trophies (“Perfect Partners!”, “Three Days of Stardom”,& “Five Days Of Fame”) by completing a game/show, then quitting out of the game, manually changing the date on your PS3, and re-booting to play another game/show.
Step 4: Grind Out All Individual Game Trophies & Get To The Top Of The A-List: At this point, considering you’ve completed 2-3 playthroughs of each game/show, you should have several of the individual trophies already completed. Now is the time to focus on playing each game individually to get high scores (most over 7,000 points), gold medals, etc. If you’ve been using the same characters the whole time, you’ll get the top of the A-List trophy (“Ultimate TV Superstar!”) before finishing up all of the other individual game trophies. Keep in mind that some games are actually easier to play as a team, rather than individually, and vice versa.
Step 5: Clean-Up Any Remaining Trophies: If you’ve completed all the steps so far, you should really have everything completed except possibly the 3-hours & 5-hours playing as a team trophies. These can be easily achieved by just replaying some of the longer games (ex: Frockstar) over and over again with your main team. With this, you can just activate the controllers and just keep pressing to keep it going, as you don’t have to actually score any points. It has also been reported that you can simply leave your PS3 on in a game with 2 controllers connected to achieve these trophies, but I cannot confirm, as these methods did not personally work for me.
