    I saw PlayStation official fb post this on their page, few minutes ago and checked it out immediately. It honestly makes me sad I didn't get enough Gold Trophies because that Helghast Sniper uniform is AMAZING!!

    Too bad I don't even stand a minimum chance with my 16 GT lol, the only item available today which is another KZ uniform is going for a minimum of 426 GT, this ain't out jealousy but that's way too much lol I could almost be certain the guy who gets it will definitely not fit in there ha.

    I bet you that most of these outfits will be sold on Ebay afterwards. I really want that Sniper outfit but I have a laughable 54 Gold trophies so that won't do.

    I just came from the bidding site. I'd like to have the Kenway outfit even though I know I won't win it. Some stuff looks awesome like the helghast outfits.

    I was thinking the same thing. It's still cool though that they are doing it. Too bad I haven't gone for trophies as hard as I could have been over the years.

    I believe that the, Helghast outfit had a bid of over 450 Gold Trophies.. You have an impressive trophy milestone, hopefully you win something!

    I wouldn't write it off yet, guys...

    I don't think the bids that were shown in the video are an accurate depiction...plus, think about how many people with PS4s will actually know about this to participate, bother participating, and the fact that due to the nature of trophies, bidding a lot on one item would effectively put winners out of the running for other items...

    Exclamation Cheating Occurring On Sony’s ‘Bid For Greatness’ Auction?

    SOURCE



    Yesterday, Sony announced Bid for Greatness, an auction house allowing PSN users to bid on rare PlayStation collectibles using their PSN gold trophies that they've earned by playing PS3 and PS Vita games. The first auction ended today with PSN user Redsoxfan95 winning the Killzone Shadow Fall ‘Black Hand Outfit’ for an outstanding 1,050 gold trophies. But looking at that person’s profile, it may not have been won legitimately.
    First discovered by @PSNProfiles, the Twitter account for the site that tracks PSN trophies, the site accused the winner of "using illegitimate methods to obtain trophies.” As reported by PlayStation LifeStyle, the winner at one point had a trophy count increase from 6,500 to 14,000 in a single day. With known methods of cheating PSN trophies and a glimpse at Redsoxfan95's trophy profile, it poses questions whether the bids on the auction house are legitimate earned trophies.
    GraveRobberX, a member on the NeoGAF forums and known trophy hunter himself, points out there are a variety of ways to cheat the PSN system when it comes to trophies. When done, the timestamps would reveal that a large number of platinum trophies were earned in a short time period, hinting that the trophies were obtained illegitimately. There are even forums dedicated to gaming the system, where users would share tips and hacked save files to obtain trophies easily.
    This wouldn't be the first time cheating has occurred that involved achievements. In 2011, Steam had their Winter Sale, which introduced their meta-game that rewarded members with a chance to win a free game, discounts, or a lump of coal. It required almost no effort at all, however, as the special event used achievements as one way to earn rewards.
    Reported by Threat Track Security, players were distributing save files that would be used to unlock achievements immediately, which resulted in winning free coupons without ever playing a game. It undermined the promotion that Valve had set forth for the sale, which they responded back by handing out bans to people who were caught cheating.
    Microsoft hosted their own achievement contest in 2007, the Old Spice Experience Challenge. By earning a number of achievements within a specific period, Xbox Live members could win free games like Contra and Fuzion Frenzy 2. Although there were no reports of cheating during the promo, it was the only achievement challenge that Microsoft issued, most likely because it was possible to tamper with achievements.
    Achievement cheating on Xbox 360 is not taken lightly by Microsoft either. As pointed out in their Xbox Live policy, if users are found cheating their gamerscore, it will reset to 0 and they will brand that person as a cheater. A second chance is offered but users would not be able to earn back achievements that were obtained illegitimately.

    Thus far, Sony hasn't taken any action on trophy cheating, nor have they responded yet about the supposed cheater who won today’s auction. Though it’s clear that this is why we can’t have good things in life.
    Update: Morgan Haro, Community Manager of PlayStation Digital Platforms, has tweeted that he will "look in to this with the teams and we'll examine."



    Trophy-licious!

    Seems like a manipulative (but smart) bid to get people to go out and buy more games, used or otherwise, to 'farm' gold trophies. It also gets people discussing the brand, makes the Playstation community suddenly spur with activity, gets people discussing the brand, etc., etc.

    Or maybe I'm cynical.

    Agreed! let's all give up our life when the PS4 comes out so we may be ready lol, all joking aside it sucks to know people are too much of losers because they have to cheat in order to win something.

    They should have done a raffle system or something. There is no way that any normal person can win anything. Not to mention it is already said that there was a hacker that won something.
