The official Guinness World Record Entry reads:
The most PlayStation platinum trophies won by an individual is 1,691, achieved by Hakam Karim aka Hakoom (Bahrain) as verified on 19 September 2018.
Record verified by PSNProfiles.
It’s the first time that Guinness has ever allowed trophy hunting to be a record discipline and more trophy-related categories could soon follow. This marks a big milestone in the history of PlayStation trophies — now there’s a shot at a real-world certificate for the thousands of hours us trophy hunters dedicate to completing games.
It took Hakoom 10 years, 2500 games, 70,000 trophies, and grinding an average 18.71 trophies per day. Since the record was filed he already upped it to 1719 Platinums.
Trophies were introduced on PS3 in 2008 and Hakoom has been hunting them since the early days with his first platinum being Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune on August 07, 2008.
I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Hakoom in real life on multiple occasions. He’s a cool guy and I wish him all the best!
And hopefully, Sony takes notice to celebrate how far trophy hunting and the community behind it have come. While they have done some special promotions locally, there has never been international support on Sony’s end. Time for a change?
