Sony reveals which PS3 game has been Platinum'd the most

Hint: It's not Dark Souls.

Assassin's Creed 2 has given up its Platinum trophy more often than any other PlayStation 3 game, Sony has revealed.

As detailed on the PlayStation Blog, Ubisoft's 2009 adventure pipped Modern Warfare 2 to the top spot, followed by Uncharted 2, God of War 3 and Resident Evil 5.

Here's the full rundown:

  1. Assassin's Creed 2
  2. Modern Warfare 2
  3. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
  4. God of War 3
  5. Resident Evil 5
  6. inFamous
  7. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
  8. God of War (GoW HD Collection)
  9. Borderlands
  10. Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus (The Sly Collection)

Sony's social media manager Jeff Rubenstein noted that all the games in the top 10 were both commercial and critical successes.

"We're looking at total Platinum trophies here, so it stands to reason that games that have sold a lot of copies would have been Platinum'd a lot," he explained.

"That's probably why you don't see CSI: Fatal Conspiracy or Hannah Montana: The Movie on this list, even though they are known to be easy to Platinum."

Similarly, he cites a focus on single player achievements as another reason why so many gamers have hit 100 per cent completion in these titles.

"None of the games listed have the dreaded 'Hit Level 50 Rank in Multiplayer.' Even the multiplayer-heavy Modern Warfare 2 saves most of its Trophies for the campaign and Spec Ops missions.

"I think this is why you see Assassin's Creed II on this list, and not AC: Brotherhood, which introduced Multiplayer to the series (and associates 10 Trophies with this mode, many of which are tough to get). Take note, developers!"
