How many times did you have to beat the SP in order to get the platinum trophy?

[ Edited ]

For those of you who have the platinum trophy, I was just wondering how many times you had to beat the SP to recieve it.

 

I'm  nearly finished with my 4th playthrough and will probably need to run through the game one more time... "For emergencies only" is the last trophy I need. I noticed that some of my weapon and supplement upgrades didn't carry over on my third playthrough and is probably why I'll be needing to beat the game for a 5th time.

 

1st playthrough: Hard

2nd: Survivor

3rd: Survivor+

4th: Survivor+

4 did the trick. Could have done it in less, but I was not in much of a hurry.

4 and a half on my console (I did another play-through with some friends at their house). The half playthrough was only to fully upgrade a couple weapons. Could've done it in 3 play-throughs if I really set my mind to it but I wanted to play through it a couple times without worrying about trophies.

Ah, I didn't know you could unlock survivor+ after beating hard+. I thought you had to beat survivor to unlock survivor+. Maybe if I did that way, I could have saved myself some time.

Yeah, you can actually get all the difficulty trophies in just 2 playthroughs.

You could beat the game on Easy-Hard, then jump right to Survivor+ afterward. If one is in it purely for the trophies.

 

But, I was in no rush. I loved the game and used my Hard+ playthrough for collecting all the artificats and upgrading Joel to the max (skills and weapons.)

 

Then my Survivor+ playthrough was just a pure survival speed-run.

Am I the only one that does not necessarily care about Trophies? 

But... I've played it 7 times through, I guess like this.. Normal, Easy+, Easy++(lol), Survivor/Hard (changed to Hard almost instantly, too scared of having no listen mode), Hard+, Hard++, Survivor... I'll be needing to play it one more time for Survivor+. I doubt that will get me Platinum but oh well, I don't have it in any game. Smiley Tongue

I got the plat on my old account. Might do it again on this acccount because I <3 the game so much. I only had about 13 plats on my old account.
