Players around the globe have spent an unlimited amount of time seeking for Platinum Trophies. Despite the alluring name, the trophies are just in-game rewards and not real life objects.
However, this is not the case anymore. PlayStation Australia is now rewarding players with real-life Platinum Trophies. The company has created four copies of the trophy and is ready to give them out to winners.
In order to participate in the competition, you will need to earn a Platinum Trophy in FIFA 18 and then share the trophy screenshot on either Facebook or Twitter by using the hashtag #PlusPlatinumHunter and tagging the official PlayStation Australia account.
The Trophies will also be available for games such as Gran Turismo Sport and Call of Duty: WWII. The launching dates for them will be October 18 and November 3 accordingly.
As intriguing as it may seem, the replicas are not actually made of solid Platinum. Instead, the estimated value of the Platinum Trophy is $1,300 AUD (around $1,000 USD). On the other hand, one ounce (28 grams) of Platinum would cost $932.
For now, you will have to be an Australian resident in order to participate in the competition. The rest of the world must comply with the virtual trophies instead.
