NBA 2K23 trophies on PS5, PS4 are completely different from each other

By Lee Brady,

The NBA 2K23 trophy lists for PS5 and PS4 are uniquely tailored to each PlayStation console, meaning it's possible for one version of the game to be easier or harder to earn a platinum trophy in than the other.

The NBA 2K23 trophies have just dropped ahead of the game's release later this week, and they've landed with a very interesting twist. The NBA2K23 trophy lists on PS5 and PS4 are completely different from one another, meaning you'll need a separate strategy to earn the platinum trophy on both PS5 and PS4.

nbaNBA 2K23 Trophies have landed!

While we've seen games like The Last of Us Part 1 get different trophies when a game gets re-released, no example jumps to the mind of a game having separate trophy lists per PlayStation console on launch. Checking out the NBA 2K23 PS4 trophies compared to the PS5 edition, we can see the older console has a few more bronzes and one less gold trophy, and a number of challenges that rarely overlap with the newer NBA 2K23 on PS5.

On PS4, players will have a slightly easier time picking up bronzes like Money Talks and Rival Pride, which ask you to simply speak to NPCs in the world, compared with PS5 challenges like The Right Notes and Entreprenuer, which ask you to actually win over districts. The NBA 2K23 PS5 trophy list also asks you to make considerable progress in The W to earn Bet on Woman, whereas the PS4 edition won't task you with playing the women's side of the sport at all.

That said, both versions of NBA 2K23 only have five online trophies apiece, with two hidden trophies across PS4 and PS5 being exactly the same, so at least there won't be too great a disparity between the releases. There are 46 NBA 2K23 trophies for PS5, two of which are hidden (to reveal the details of the secret trophies, please use this link). Meanwhile, there are 51 trophies, three of which are hidden (to reveal the details of the secret trophies, please use this link).
