A ‘professional’ PlayStation4 trophy hunting YouTuber claims to have set a new world record by completing 50 platinum trophies in under 24 hours.
Many PS4 gamers will often look to challenge themselves by completing a game and all of the quirky achievements in its entirety to earn that prestigious Platinum Trophy on PlayStation 4.
However, one hardcore gamer seems to have made a career out of doing so, becoming known for his gaming playthroughs and tutorials on how to achieve 100% completion on many of the most popular titles.
The YouTuber, who simply goes by ‘PS4Trophies’, has amassed a massive following of over 825,000 subscribers on their channel for their guides, and decided to push things to the next level by looking to break a world record at what they do best.
PS4Trophies set out on the 24-hour challenge in an attempt to complete and earn platinum trophies in 50 different games in total, which would be quite the feat for even the most hardcore gamers out there. Most will have only a handful of platinums in their lifetime of PS4 play.
Surprisingly to some viewers, the YouTuber managed to smash the challenge by completing the final game, just minutes after hitting the 20-hour mark, explaining, “So I did a thing over the past 20 hours, where I played to full completion, 50 games and earned 50 Platinums.”
So I did a thing over the past 20 hours, where I played to full completion, 50 games and earned 50 Platinums. Thought it'd be much easier than it was but with the community really pulled me through and this is dedicated to them. Check out the profile, https://t.co/GgoCu8LBzc

Despite completing the challenge well within the limit which was set, Ps4Trophies revealed that it was much more difficult then they had originally anticipated it to be. “Thought it’d be much easier than it was but with the community really pulled me through and this is dedicated to them.”
The full 20 hour stream was broadcasted live on their YouTube channel, and is fast approaching 50,000 views.
In order to accomplish this challenge, they avoided some of the more time-consuming games, such as Death Stranding, which would likely take weeks to achieve platinum trophies by themselves.
Instead, they focused on some of the shorter games that were available on the PlayStation store, earning each platinum trophy in as short as 5 minutes or up to 40 minutes long, depending on the title.
Regardless, managing to complete so many games in such a short amount of time is still incredibly impressive and it is likely that it required a lot of concentration and muscle memory to overcome such a challenge.
