#GamingBytes: Spider-Man PS4 has incredibly high platinum trophy completion
Marvel's Spider-Man for PS4 has already made its mark in the gaming community by breaking multiple records. It was also well received by critics.

Read all about the new achievement here.
Familiarize yourself with the gaming terms
For those unaware, a triple-A game is a big budget game, requiring huge amounts of money and resources. Trophies refer to the rewards in PlayStation games. Gamers earn them by completing specific in-game requirements. Platinum signifies the highest rarity of trophy available.
A comparative look at Spider-Man's numbers
According to reports, Spider-Man's trophy completion rate is 10.2%.
This might look unimpressive compared to a game like 'Undertale' which boasts a 21.4% completion rate.
However, put in context with PS4 exclusives, Spider-Man fares really well.
The other games with high platinum trophy completion-rate are 'Horizon Zero Dawn' at 6.9%, 'God Of War' (2018) at 5.5%, 'Until Dawn' at 2.9%, 'Persona' 5 at 2.4%.
How does Spider-Man PS4 boast these amazing numbers?
The reason Spider-Man for PS4 has such an amazing platinum trophy completion rate is that the game is really easy to complete, despite its size.
Players, who finish 100% of the game, will realize that they do not need to play it at a certain difficulty or complete a mission in a specific way, in order to unlock the platinum trophy.
Hurdles along the way in Spider-Man
Gamers do not be fooled by the high platinum trophy collection rates of Spider-Man.
The game has a couple of difficult missions including Taskmaster's Short Fuse, Fists of Fury, Spy Hunter, and Ninja challenges.
Players have to get a Spectacular (2 out of 3) rating in the drone, stealth, combat and bomb challenges.
Notably, the 'I heart Manhattan' achievement is time taking but easy.
