PlayStation: Bid On Items With Gold Trophies (CFW cheaters winning)

Well the winner of the first Killzone costume is a cheater

He has too many game completed with the 1 week 11 hours playtime

Such bullshit

So 1 Cheater claims their greatness...

Yeah 1 hour and 29 minutes to Platinum Just Cause 2, yeah very fucking legit!
Man. That's some bullshit. I really hope there's a way for Sony to detect that and ban those people. As soon as trophy hacking became possible, I figured Sony would abandon any plans to offer real rewards for them. But then this happens.
 
Trophies will not be lost from PSN account.

So what's the point then? A small handful of people who have the most trophies can bid on every item, at least on one item from each day, if they don't lose their trophies they can just keep outbidding people who don't have as many.
Now I see why Optimus Prime always defeated you.

I tweeted to playstation and yoshida, most likely will fall on deaf fucking ears

I tweeted so many time for my PS3 account being fucked up since November 2012, no fucking response

Unless your spit polishing their balls and cock with adulation and softball questions they ain't replying back
 
Haha, yeah sure. I bet the the people at Sony are just thinking that they have big trophy hunters as fans instead of just checking their trophies dates.

Who do I give my anger filled complaint?!

EDIT: I tweeted yosp in a passive aggressive manner (not really), I hope he can pass it along.
This is what I tweeted.

@yosp Super sad that the amazing Greatness Awaits promotion will only be won by trophy cheaters :(

What's the significance of the 1 week 11 hours thing? What did this guy do to game the system?
Custom Firmware
Xploder
Proxy Server
Sign Game Save Code as their Console ID/Account ID
Save Hack
Multiman

A plethora of cheats/tricks to gain the system
He just used a combination where he earned trophies @ those certain times, so he can bypass the trophy leaderboards websites
Some are dumb and get hundreds of platinum within minutes, the trophy sites have ways to catch those
Others try to stack different timestamps, but still get caught if you go into their account and look for discrepancies

So CFW PS3's had been offline since that OFW release that would banhammer them
So most just accumulated ungodly amount of trophies by cheating with multiple ways till they can gain access to PSN again
Most ripped discs and abused saves/game code and got Platinums illegitimately
When a way was found to connect to the PSN w/o banning, most just synced their shit, and went legit and trying to stay under the radar
Some still do it

Proof:

Yeah, this will escalate, quickly, if redsox gets doesn't get revoked, you damn well know those threads will be on fucking fire for those items coming up soon

Well then, they better cancel the whole fucking thing, because there's no way it's gonna end well.
 
This is pretty stupid... So essentially ~50-100 people can actually hope to win the 15 items. Way to go Sony... If they are going to do this they should offer thousands of items. That way ppl who have a few golds trophies can also bid for the less expensive items.

In psnprofiles he's in the Dirty Column, so they have registered them as a cheater

They're not in the clean leaderboards

Also the most damning info just take a look at their statistics:
So in January 2013, redsoxfan earned roughly 8300 Trophies IN ONE FUCKING MONTH, Child Please, if you are going to cheat, do it smart


My trophy earn rate for comparison:

Maybe 3-5 items will be won by legit users who either team oriented or shared account, everything else is cheaters, if cheaters amass a fuck-ton of Gold they might take all 15

Team oriented is not a bad thing, but for the purposes of this contest calling them "legit users" is kinda not right.

Having a "team" account win something leaves the same bad taste that a cheater would leave.

Well true, but it would be hard to prove
At least teams put effort into earning trophies, buy + play games, they just pool their trophies onto one account

Cheaters just DL the games or rip them, put in their favorite programs, Insta-Ping their virtual rewards and try to attach themselves to legit users and say we also worked hard for ours, which is complete utter bullshit
 
I REALLY hope cheaters just go fucking buck wild now. Just completely destroy this promotion.

Maybe it will make Sony realize there is a problem?

Like, how the flying fuck has this redsox guy not been banned yet? Is Sony really that incompetent?

That's some absolute garbage right there.

Somebody call Kotaku.

Seriously good idea in theory absolutely awful in execution. They'll never acknowledge theres a problem.
Not sure if you were kidding about the Kotaku part or not, but it may not be a bad idea at all to try and get the media involved.

I can't imagine Sony would actually want the cheaters and hackers to win all of these prizes.
 
So ignoring the cheaters this really just rewards those at the top of the trophy list. If you get your trophies back there's no reason to not bid everything you have on every item that goes up for auction.

Unless I am missing something.

EDIT: Oh, so once you bid on something it remembers you've used X amount of gold trophies. That is fair then. Makes me wish I was primarily a PS3 gamer instead of Xbox when I was playing consoles now hehe
 
I've got 334 golds, and have spent an insane/borderline-embarrassing amount of time on my PS3. It's a shame that every auction is and will probably be solely won by abusers. Thankfully, nothing they're offering really piqued my interest, otherwise I'd be more irked.
 
I'll be flabbergasted if Sony actually give those prizes away to cheaters.

They need to be made aware of this, seriously.

It totally defeats the point of the 'greatness awaits' tagline if they're going to reward people who need to artificially inflate a number to make themselves feel better.

That may seem hypocritical as I am a trophy lover myself, but all of mine have been obtained legitimately.

It seems a bit sad that these people exist on forums where they trade save files and CFW tips just to boost a trophy score.

Well that's what I thought originally too, but apparently not. Look back in the thread. GraveRobber and I were discussing it. Apparently, if you lose out on an item, you get the trophies (bids) back. Of course...it makes absolutely no sense considering the talk about "strategy" of bidding in PlayStation's original blog post. Something doesn't seem right...
