Welcome to Trophy of the Week, the PSU column which celebrates PS3 and Vita trophies in all their various forms: be they hard, secret, clever, quirky or just plain tricky to achieve. Each week we’ll take a look at a trophy, show you how to achieve it and examine what may have influenced its design. Please be aware that this feature will include spoilers so stop reading now if you don’t want to know any more about the trophy and the game under discussion.

This week I am going to look at the Far Cry 3 trophy entitled, " Say hi to the internet." This particular trophy caught my eye for two reasons: the clever way it was hinted at in Far Cry 3 previews, and how it shows that truth is just as strange as fiction.

Here's how it works.

You will need to travel to coordinates X:620 Y:557 on the North island. To get there quickly fast travel to the outpost by Rock Point Tower. Once you get to the coordinates you are going to see a head buried in the sand; interacting with the head unlocks the achievement and the trophy is yours.

After you've got the trophy, you might think that the head looks familiar ? Lets take a look at the Far Cry 3 box art.

As you can see the clue to the head's location was on the front of the game, but how did its owner get there in the first place?
