    I did platinum it and assume that one is the platinum. It is sad that it seems to have sold so badly and gone completely under the radar with news coverage and reviews. Didn't see the retail copy in Game either,even though they stocked Fire Pro Wrestling by same publisher. I managed to get one person to buy it but it is a shame as I really enjoyed it and hoped it could lead to a Machi localisation too.
    Don't look at me, I did my best to grill EG for not reviewing it.

    Incidentally, I was only interested in 428 because I had already played Machi by that point. I'm sorry to say this when you probably have no way of playing it, but... to me, Machi was an even better game (there's no "everyone bands together to save the city" plot however, it's much more slice-of-life, which might not be to everyone's taste).

    It also might not fly very well with today's standards. One of the scenarios is about a girl constantly trying (and failing) to lose weight because her boyfriend demanded so, lest she gets dumped.

    @Malek86 I did start translating Machi myself for Japanese practice (starting with the scenario you mentioned) but real life got in the way and the hope of an official translation ;)

    Ps. Looking at that rare trophy of mine it seems 9% of people got it according to European PSN trophy stat which surely cannot be right.

    @One_Vurfed_Gwrx percentages only take into account the number of people have played the game. So that means 9% of those who played 428 (or at least installed it, I guess) managed to get the platinum.

    It's not a hard trophy to get, to be fair, if you have a guide handy. The only reason I didn't get it was because I didn't care much for the extra scenarios, since they have no jump points and no multiple choices.

    (by the way, if 9% of the players is 70 people, that means the game sold roughly 800 copies? Ouch. At least I'm pretty sure that's only for Europe)

    Biggest game was MGSV with 185 hours or something played, which is at least twice more than I would've expected given how much I even remember about that game

    A lot of running in the desert I suppose

    If this method works, then using the data obtained here, it means Chariot sold around 8k units, and Dragon's Trap sold a bit less than 20k. Of course only in Europe, since I'm pretty sure Sony counts EU and NA and JP versions as separate games in the trophy screens.

    ALso I think you need to start the game at least once to register for trophies count, but it should still be an acceptable approximation.

    My top 3 games were all Final Fantasy, to my surprise. Forgot I put a fair few hours into XIV without ever paying for a subscription.

    1st: XII TZA
    2nd: XV
    3rd: XIV ARR

    None of them would be near my top 3 favourite PS4 games though, ironically enough.

    130 Games

    3275 hours
    R6 Siege - 522
    Battlefield 4 - 348
    Destiny - 340

    Surprised by the last two TBH, not the first, I loved Thunt with buddies and beer

    First game: Resogun

    1975 hours
    98 games

    FFXV - 204 hours
    Witcher 3 - 166 hours
    FFXII - 87 hours

    1540 Trophies

    "Only" 5479 players have my rarest trophy.


    I knew I preferred FFXV to TW3, but I had no idea I spent so much more time with it. Also really wouldn't have guessed I put so much time into FFXII; I'd have estimated something like 50 tops.

    592 hours across 97 games

    Witcher 3 - 211 hours
    Arkham Knight - 61 Hours
    Gravity Rush 2 - 51 Hours

    Rarest Trophy - "Home" The Lost Bear - shared with 2349 other players.


    Not surprised by the Witcher 3 dominating. It's easily my game of the generation.

    My takeaway though, is that while I spent significant time on Arkham City and Gravity Rush 2, my memories of both game are of having to slog through repetitive missions and just wishing that the damned game would end. In the case of GR2 I was just trying to finish the game in its entirety before the servers went offline. So just because I spent time on a game doesn't necessarily mean I enjoyed it more.

    As for the rarest trophy, I can only assume that the Lost Bear was only played by 2349 other players as I'm pretty sure it's unlocked as part of the story. A shame as it was a fairly amiable PSVR platformer.

    mine amused me. Started off well, with Resogun being my first game, with 649 hours across 100 PS4 games (I got my Ps4 when inFamous SS was released so have had it a while now). Then the "you've been rumbled" message appears:

    1. Batman AK (64 hours)
    2. Binding of Isaac (64 hours)
    3. Gauntlet slayer edition (44 hours)

    rumbled as I've been focussing on my PS3 / Vita back-catalogue (I've been playing Rainbow Moon for most of the first part of the year ... it tells me I've spent 150+ hours on it), so the newest game I've spent any time on is now 3 1/2 years old ...

    My trophy achievement was one with only 1735 similar players, for Rock Boshers DX DC ...

    so all this tells me is that i'm waaaaaay out of the loop with new games and / or I buy too many.

    oh the woes of a 44 year old kidult ...

    773 hours across 59 games. The top 3 seems odd though...

    1: God of War - 58 hours
    2: Rocket League - 57 hours
    3: Mafia 3 - 55 hours

    I'm sure I didn't play God of War for quite that long, and I've definitely played Red Dead Redemption 2 for more than 55 hours so it should have made the top 3.

    2,151 trophies earned. Rarest trophy is Firefly on The Lost Bear which only 179 people have.

    @RawShark according to PSNProfiles, only about 33% of the players have unlocked that trophy. Keep in mind that, even if a trophy is tied to the story mode, a lot of people don't actually finish their games.

    In fact, in many games, even the easiest achievement (something that you obtain automatically after finishing the intro chapter, for example) is not acquired by 100% of the players.

    @Malek86 That's interesting. Having visited that site and refreshed my memory, I can confirm it's the trophy you get for finishing the game.

    It is the sort of game you finish in one sitting as it probably doesn't take much longer than an hour. I guess we can surmise that it sold in the region of 5000 digital copies.

    My top three are SF5, Nioh and God of War, although there's absolutely no way I played GoW for over 100 hours, so fuck knows what's going on there.

    @RawShark judging from your number and the rarity, it had about 7000 players.

    Which is not the same as saying it sold 7000 units, because of people with multiple accounts per household, and game sharing, and also those who bought the game and never started it (the profile won't start counting your trophies unless you start the game at least once).

    Still, it should be a decent enough estimation.

    I strongly suspect that the data churned out for some users on this is broken.

    My most played was FIFA 14. Granted, it was slim pickings in 2013 on PS4, but I struggle to believe that's correct. I do like a bit of FIFA some times, but not enough for it to be my most played game

    Can tell I barely use the PS4 any more.

    First Game - KZ Shadow Fall

    Total - 885 hours in 139 games

    1. MGSV - 71 hours
    2. F1 2015 - 60 hours
    3. Project Cars - 55 hours

    Rarest Trophy was from Dangerous Golf, 7.5k others have it.

    3,271 hours over 94 games.

    367 in GTA5
    307 in Madden 18
    261 in Fifa 15

    Achievement was The Defence Grid from Defence Grid 2. Another one of those probably didn't sell too much as I'm not one to bother with achievements. I was one of 4,079 to get it apparently.

    GTA is probably 75% in single player which considering I rinsed the game on the 360 before double dipping is a bit worrying.

    Also my maths are rubbish but I think that's about 3 hours per day, every day over those 5 years. Not including PC, phone etc. That's quite something...

    First game was watchdogs.

    Played 4090 hours so far across 146 PS4 games

    Most played:
    1. 258 hours of Deus ex mankind divided
    2. 258 hours of assassins origins
    3. 203 hours of ghost recon Wildlands

    Earned 1504 trophies since PS4 launched (vid doesn't show the two platinums for the telltale games I clocked)


    Rarest trophy is _the twelve strokes of midnight_ in white Night. Only 4838 players have earned this one.


    .. I don't even like origins that much.. they padded it so took time to clock it.
