In the meantime, beat a path to your next platinum trophy with these Uncharted: Golden Abyss hints.
"Like every Uncharted game, you have to beat the single player campaign twice: once to unlock Crushing mode and again to complete it. It's not so hard, but the trickiest things are the Bounties – these can be located using the "near" feature. It took me two to three months to get all of them." (Mr_Seb, France)
"The hidden trophy is the one I liked the most but I won't say too much about it. I would suggest not using guides in order to find treasures because you will be happier seeking them out by yourself." (JohnCouscous, France)
"It's a good idea to play through the game in Hard mode so that the step up to Crushing difficulty isn't too daunting. The most challenging part of the game comes when you have to cover Sully – with well placed grenades, you'll do fine." (Haikai, France)
"The best suggestion I can give is to share Bounties with friends, otherwise it's incredibly hard to obtain them all. I finished the game three times and still hadn't completed my Bounty list; when I used "near" I was able to mop up all of the elusive items." (Lucis21, Italy)
"My advice is to play through the game first on Hard mode, and then on Crushing. Next, do a sweep of the game on the easiest setting to collect all of the treasures and Bounties, complete all of the puzzles and rack up your kill challenges with each weapon." (Annevandam, Netherlands)
"Touch My Rear was the first trophy that I earned on PS Vita. The trophy is also special for another reason: you need to use a function that only PS Vita has. With the rear touch pad you can climb ropes in Uncharted: Golden Abyss. The rear touch pad function is really useful and makes climbing more fun and, for me, much easier than in other Uncharted games. Kudos to PS Vita." (axceldc, Netherlands)
"Got my platinum a few weeks ago and unlike many other trophy grinds, I enjoyed every second of it. Although you will need to complete the game on Hard mode to unlock Crushing, my advice would be to play the game through first on a difficulty you feel most comfortable with and just enjoy it – you'll be able to get your tactics all figured out and consequently storm through harder difficulty levels.
"Perhaps the most time-consuming trophies within the game involve collecting all the Bounties; however you can make this daunting task both fun and sociable by trading with your friends via the Black Market if you so wish – a nice little addition which is the best use of "near" I've seen in a game yet. There's a good mix of trophies here, some old, some new, and fans of the Uncharted series won't be disappointed. This isn't just Uncharted on PS Vita, this is Uncharted for PS Vita."
