Welcome to PowerPyx.com.
My name is Robert, and I’m a 25-year-old guy who likes playing video games, working on graphics, doing some HTML coding and editing videos. But most of all, I like working on guides. I’m interested in pretty much everything tech-related and gaming is my greatest passion.
I started my website and YouTube channel to help out fellow gamers. The goal is simple: to give you the highest quality guides and reviews on the internet, readily accessible when new games release.
PowerPyx.com is offering you high-quality guides and helpful strategies for the latest games, focusing on PlayStation Trophies, Xbox Achievements, Collectibles, Walkthroughs, and Reviews.

1. What’s the meaning of the word ‘PowerPyx’?
The first part ‘Power’ stands for electrical power (electricity). Pyx is an abstract form of ‘Pix’ (also ‘pics’), which is the short form of ‘Pictures’. If you put this together it means ‘Electrical Pictures’. On a simplified level, those are the core ingredients of video games.
2. What’s your PSN ID / XBL Gamertag / Steam ID?
I’m called “PowerPyx” on all those platforms.
3. What capture device do you use?
I am currently working with the Elgato Game Capture. In the past I have been using the HD PVR from Hauppauge!®. All of the older Guides (prior to February 2011) have been captured with the Dazzle DVC 100 from Pinnacle Systems.
4. What editing programs do you use?
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5, Adobe After Effects CS5 & Adobe Photoshop CS5.
5. How do you get games early?
Sometimes the developers / publishers are nice enough to provide me with an early copy. It’s a win-win! Their game gets more publicity, I get to play it early and you get full trophy guides etc. on release day completely for free.
6. May I use your work?
That depends on what you want to use and the way you want to publish it. You are allowed to embed any of my videos with the original YouTube video player (in forums, websites, social media etc.). You can find the embed code on the YouTube video page by clicking the Share-Button. If you are a guide writer you can embed the videos within your guides.
For anything else, please contact me directly. Unauthorized re-upload of videos, texts (including translations), images and other copyrighted materials is strictly forbidden and will be taken down.
Official Partners licensed to reupload my videos in their own web player:
