Following our last Top 5 Tuesday where we revealed the
most shameful Platinum Trophies people can earn on a PlayStation device, we’re now going to the other end of the spectrum.
As the title states, listed in the video above are the five most impressive Platinum Trophies gamers can earn on a PlayStation platform. If you see anyone in your friend’s list with these games “Platinumed,” then you know they’re hardcore. Either that, or they have way too much time on their hands.
Do you agree with our picks? What’s the hardest PlayStation game to get a Platinum on? Sound off and let us know below in the comments.

Check out a list of accessories you can buy for the PS4 and PS Vita!
2) SCUF 4PS
For those who want to optimise their DualShock 4's performance, the SCUF "4PS" is the way to go. Featuring many enhancements over the standard controller, the SCUF is a popular choice amongst gaming pros and enthusiasts.
However, the price might be a big barrier to overcome for some (most) gamers with its $149.95 price tag.
If that's fine with you, you can get at
SCRUF's official site.
3) Sony Pulse Wireless Headset (Gold and Silver)
Possibly the best gaming headset you can get for just $100, the Pulse headsets are not only official, but they're awesome. Rocking 7.1 virtual surround sound, these bad boys even have customized audio profiles for specific games that support it.
And yes, they work with your phones, PCs, Vita and other audio devices, too.
If you can, go get the Gold one, but if not, the Silver one should suffice.
4) Thumb Grips
I would almost say these are a necessity with the not so reliable DualShock 4 joysticks. Cheap and easy to attach, these will not only keep your thumbs from slipping during a long
Diablo session, but it will also keep them from getting worn off. (via EB)
5) Starter Kits
Starter kits are my most hated of add-on accessories. There is usually only one (or maybe two) items in the whole thing that you might use, and the rest end up being regretted justifications. If you want a carrying case, just buy a separate one. You don’t need those headphones. Trust me. (via
Similar to the chatpad available on the Xbox 360, the PlayStation 4 Chatboost allows you to quickly and easily type on your PS4. Typically, I wouldn’t recommend a chatpad for your system, but with the addition of the easily accessible share button, I find myself reaching for the chatpad more and more often. It also extends the battery life of your charger by almost double, which we all know is a plus. (via
7) Cool and Charge
There are so many different stands, coolers, and chargers available, that if those are accessories you want, the Collective Minds stand combines all three into one sleek looking unit. The downside is the space: if you don’t have room to store your PS4 on a top surface, it’s not going to work for you. (via
8) Dust Proof Kit
These, believe it or not, can actually make the venting worse on your system. While it does keep dust out, it also severely limits the air exchange. If you have dust concerns, two things will help: keep it in open air, not in an entertainment center, and vacuum it (with power off and unplugged!) every month or so. Also, compressed air is your friend. (via
9) Controller Skins
Controller skins are good in theory, but in application never hold up. They are awkward to put on, slide around once around the controller, and collect dirt and dust like nobody’s business. If you’re worried about getting your DS4 dirty, just wipe the Doritos fingers off on your pants or something, and give these a pass. (via
10) Charging Station
A charging station for any controllers that don’t switch out batteries or rechargeable packs is almost a no brainer, and docking stations are my favorite. They don’t take up a (limited) USB port, they fit multiple controllers, and look pretty on your shelf. (via
11) Nyko Smart Clip
Just please don’t, for the love of the Maker. (via
12) Memory Card
The included memory card on the Vita is weak, plain and simple. An upgrade is necessary, and so I recommend you go big or go home, and save yourself the trouble of multiple cards. 32GB is the largest available in North America; if that’s not enough, you can always import the 64GB card. They’re pricey, but worth it. (via
These things are weird. Whether you’re using it to prop up your Vita while playing, or display it while not in use -- just no. Use your muscles or protect it from dust, you silly. (via
14) Trigger Grip
While not a personal user of trigger grips, I both know that they’re popular and can appreciate the added value. They make extended Vita play more comfortable and fit perfectly in the hands. They also help to enhance some gameplay, especially with shooting and sports games. (via
15) Carrying Case
Speaking of a carrying case, in my opinion it’s a must. One of the greatest advantages to the Vita is its portability, and you want to make sure that you’re keeping it safe while you’re on the go. Soft cases are always my recommendation for saving space, and most come with slots for games, memory cards, and other accessories. (This one also fits my 3DS, so I have everything in one convenient place). (via
16) Portable Charger
On a case by case basis, this could be worth the money. If you do a lot of travelling that keeps you away from a USB port or plug, then having a backup battery charge isn’t a bad idea. Otherwise, it’s a bigger money investment with much less of a payout. (via
17) Crystal Case
Want to make your Vita look junky while also making sure every trapped bit of dirt is visible? Well then this is for you! Seriously though, skins are bad, but hard crystal cases are the worst, not to mention I’ve seen them crack from using the Vita while it’s inside. Get a case, and trust yourself. (via
18) PS4 Guard
I saved the best for last. Really, guys? Really? What is this even protecting it from? Please don’t do this to that gorgeous piece of hardware. I beg you. (via
