‘Full Game(s)’ means a paid for digital game purchased and downloaded from PlayStation Store and classified as ‘full game’ or ‘premium edition’ on the game page. It excludes free games, games for $0.00 or equivalent, free trials of games, games included in PlayStation Plus for subscribers, demos, DLC, add-ons or any other purchase from PlayStation Store. Bundles that include one game or more, or bundles that include a game and upgrades, other versions, add-ons, DLC, avatars or other items will count as one ‘Full Game’. All other bundles that do not include one game will not count as a ‘Full Game’.
‘Rare and Above Trophy and Trophies’ include those trophies with rarity values of rare, very rare and ultra-rare at the time of earning and can be from any game you already own. Learn more about trophy setting here.
