X Factor is based off the UK (and soon to be US) hit music competition reality show of the same name. In the game you will take your character from nothing to become a superstar. You will progress through the all the stages that the contestants would go through on the real show, from try outs, to boot camp, to the judges' house and finally on to the live shows where you compete for the title. With a song list of almost 30 tracks, the game has something for everyone. The game is also fairly forgiving as well, so you don't have to be a musical virtouso in order to enjoy or do well in it. The trophies are very straight forward and almost completely are based off the career mode and different things within it, along with a ones for the other modes included.
Step 1: First Playthrough Of Career Mode
Start a career mode as either a male or female character in Star Mode difficulty (only one unlocked right now). During this career run, you will be going after the first place trophies and not being in a single final showdown, along with misc other ones. Make sure that when you get to the live shows you are picking songs that you know and can do well as you want to make sure you avoid placing in the bottom 2 and having to go to a final showdown. You also want to try to get at least 3 1st place finishes during this career run as well. Other trophies that you will want to try for as well are the rehearsal ones (rehearse at least 15 times) & the quiz ones (answer at least 8 correct). You will also want to make sure that you wear every outfit customization that you can during the shows to work towards that trophy. Once you win the competition, you will get Boot Camp, Judges' House, On Air, & Real Star (and if you never went to a final show down like advised, you will also get Piece of Cake).
Step 2: Second Playthrough Of Career Mode
For your second career playthrough, you will want to select whichever character gender you did in the previous step, but this time select Superstar Mode difficulty. During this career playthrough, you are going to be aiming to be in the bottom 2 in every round of the live shows so you are in the final showdown every week. To do this, just select your song and when it's time to perform it the first time, do absolutely nothing and get a score of 0. When the results come in and you are in the bottom 2, you will go on to the final showdown. Pick the song you want to sing and this time make sure you sing it as best as you possibly can so the judges pick you and you advance to the next week's show. Keep doing this for every week until you get to the semi-finals (7th live show), then make sure you sing all the songs as best as possible from there on out so that you win the competition. After you do all of those steps and win the competition, you will have obtained Superstar, Narrow Escape, & Guardian Angel. You will also want to continue changing outfits for every performance and selecting the new items that you unlock during this career run.
Step 3: Remaining Career Mode Related TrophiesFor this step, you will be completing the career mode of the opposite gender that you selected in the first 2 steps in both Star & Superstar Mode difficulties. During these runs, you can place however you want as long as you win the whole thing at the end. The main thing you are doing during these steps are unlocking all the outfits and songs. Once you finish the last 2 career modes, you will have unlocked everything (outfits, hair, & songs) & you will get Grand Slam.
Step 4: Obtain Fashion Victim Trophy
Now that you have everything unlocked, it's time to get the Fashion Victim trophy. Select to play in either Solo or Duet in "Party Mode" and then at the song selection screen, press to customize your character. Select either male of female and then any contestant. After you've done that, hit again on their "profile-like" page to customize their outfits. Go through each custom item (hair, torso, leg items) and press on them to select them, then move to the next one. If an item has more than one color available (it will say " Change the colour" at the top of the screen), make sure you scroll through each available color for that item before moving on. Once you have pressed to "wear" every item for whichever gender you choose, back out to the song selection menu and repeat the process with the opposite gender. Once you run through all of the items and have worn them (with their color variations), the trophy will unlock for you!
Step 5: Party Mode Trophies
This will be the most time consuming part of all as you need to sing all 28 of the songs in solo mode and duet mode, as well as play one round of "Competition Mode" & "Battle Mode" each. For all of these you do not have to achieve any certain score or anything like that, just complete the songs in the required mode type. If you want, you can even just put the microphone down, select a song and just let it play in the background without doing anything, then rinse and repeat with the rest of the tracks. Once you complete all the songs in both Solo & Duet modes, as well as played one round of Battle & Competition, you will get Solo, Jack-Of-All-Trades, Duo, Harmony, Competition, & Battle.
Step 6: Clean-Up
You should have everything by this point, but if for some reason you are missing any trophies, go back and clean those up now in the appropriate mode required for them. Once you finish that up, enjoy your X Factor Platinum trophy!
[PS3T Would Like to Thank OnceFallen for this Roadmap]
|The X Factor|
|Complete all the other trophies.||(2)|
|Qualified for Boot camp.|
The very first thing you have to do in Career Mode is sing for the judges in order to move on to the Boot Camp round. Just pick a song you're comfortable with and aim to do as best as you can (you don't have to be perfect by any stretch). After you complete the song and get a vote of "Yes", you will move on to the Boot Camp round and the trophy will pop!
|Qualified for the Judges' house.|
You must make it through all 3 rounds of Boot Camp and move on to the next round, which is the Judges' house. In the first 2 rounds, you will be able to select from a list of 10 songs and in the 3rd, you will be given a song you need to sing. If you are unfamiliar with any of the songs or are not good at them, then make sure you practice them prior to performing. After you finish all 3 rounds and move on to the Judges' house, the trophy will pop!
|Qualified for the Live shows.|
You must make it through the Judges' house round in order to qualify for the Live shows. The Judge's house consists of only one song, but instead of singing only part of the song like in the previous rounds, you will be required to sing the entire thing. You are given your choice of any of the songs unlocked, so make sure you pick one you are comfortable as you want to make sure you do as good as possible to make it through. Once the judge puts you through to next round, the trophy will pop!
|Rehearse 1 song in same career.|
|Rehearse 8 songs in the same career.|
|Rehearse 15 songs in the same career.|
Once you make to the Boot Camp round, you are given the option through your "dressing room" menu to pactice your upcoming song (it's the second door from the right with the earphone icon on it). You can practice each song only twice through out your career. You do not need to achieve any certain amount of points or even sing at all if you don't want to, you can just let it play through the song. Make sure that you rehearse 15 songs during ONE career (which if you rehearse each song you have to sing at least once at every step of the way, you will get more than enough). Once you finish your 15th rehearsal of you songs, the trophy will pop!
|Finish a Live show in first place.|
|Finish 3 Live shows in first place during the same career.|
After you finish a live show, the "audience" will vote for who was their favorite. Once they do, the people who are staying will be revealed in the order of who received the most to least amount of votes. You need to be the person with the most votes for 3 of the 8 shows. This isn't as hard as it sounds though as long as you do fairly decent on the songs. To make it easier, I would pick easier songs when possible and try to rack up as many points as possible to get this out of the way as fast as possible so you don't have to worry about it later on. If you at anytime forget how many 1st place rankings you have so far, you can check it from your dressing room menu (it's the TV with the bar graph on it) and see the results of the previous weeks. Once you finish in 1st for the third time in the competition during your career, the trophy will pop!
|Escape a final showdown.|
See "Guardian Angel"
|Answer quiz correctly 3 times in the same career.|
|Answer quiz correctly 8 times in the same career.|
You will begin getting asked quiz questions once you start doing the live shows. The questions range on a variety of topics related to songs your performing, your stats, other singer's places and other things. Each live show has anywhere from 1-3 quiz questions normally. As long as you pay attention to what is going on and everything, you should have little problem getting 8 correct by then end of the game. Once you get 8 answers correctly in one career, the trophy will pop!
|Win the competition in Star mode.|
When you start your first career mode game, you will only be able to select Star mode difficulty. You must finish the competition and win the whole thing. The competition itself consists of a tryout, 3 rounds of boot camp, 1 judges' house round, & 8 live shows (with 1-3 songs sung in each). It doesn't matter where you place in it, as long as you are 1st on the final show. Once you win the competition, the trophy will pop!
|Win the competition in Superstar mode.|
When you start your first career mode game, you will only be able to select Star mode difficulty, so you must play through it and beat it in order to unlock Superstar mode difficulty. Superstar mode difficulty isn't really any harder than Star mode difficulty to be honest (I did identical points/song wise in both and had no problem ending up in 1st or 2nd each round). To get the trophy you must finish the competition and win the whole thing. The competition itself consists of a tryout, 3 rounds of boot camp, 1 judges' house round, & 8 live shows (with 1-3 songs sung in each). It doesn't matter where you place in it, as long as you are 1st on the final show. Once you win the competition, the trophy will pop!
|Piece of cake!|
|Win the contest without ever being in the final showdown.|
In order to stay out of the "final showdown", you must not place in the last 2 spots of the final voting results during the first 6 live shows (shows 7 & 8 don't have final showdown, they are just based off "viewer" votes). This is easier to do on Star Mode difficulty as the opponents tend to do alot worse than you and normally give you an easy 3rd or higher rank. Once you win the entire competition and were not in a single final showdown, the trophy will pop!
|Win the contest after being in the final showdown at each stage.|
This is the complete opposite of Piece Of Cake. You must be in the bottom 2 each week of the live show and then win the final showdown so you stay alive and advance to the next week's show. The easiest way to do this is to select whatever song you are going to do and when it starts, just do nothing so you get a score of 0. This will guarantee that you will be in the bottom 2 and be forced into the final showdown. Once you are in the final showdown, select what song you are going to sing again and this time make sure you do the best you possibly can so that you defeat your opponent and advance. Repeat for every round until the semi-finals (7th live show) and then make sure you sing the best you can for the remainder of the competition so you win it. Once you do those 2 things, the trophy will pop!
|Perform 1 song in Solo mode.|
|Perform 1 song in Duet mode.|
|Perform 1 song in Battle mode.|
At the main menu, select "Party Mode" and then "Battle Mode". After that, just pick any song to play. You do not have to achieve any score, you only need to complete the song. If you want, you can just put the microphones down, select a song, & just wait until it completes. Once you finish one song in Battle mode, the trophy will pop!
|Complete 1 Competition.|
At the main menu, select "Party Mode" and then "Competition". Select 2 players & 1 round, then have each person select the song they want to sing. You can either sing through both players or have one of them get a few points, then just set the microphone down and let the songs finish up for both players. Once you finish the competition, the trophy will pop!
|Perform all the songs in Solo mode.||(1)|
At the main menu, select "Party Mode" and then "Solo Mode". After that, just play through each song one time (including all unlocked songs). You do not have to achieve any score, you only need to complete each song. If you want, you can just put the microphone down, select a song, wait until it completes, then move on to the next one. Once you finish all the songs in Solo mode, the trophy will pop!
|Perform all the songs in Duet mode.|
At the main menu, select "Party Mode" and then "Duet Mode". After that, just play through each song one time (including all unlocked songs). You do not have to achieve any score, you only need to complete each song. If you want, you can just put the microphones down, select a song, wait until it completes, then move on to the next one. Once you finish all the songs in Duet mode, the trophy will pop!
|Get a minimum of 6 000 points.|
See "Gold Disc"
|Get a minimum of 10 000 points.|
See "Gold Disc"
|Get a minimum score of 15 000 points.|
This isn't as hard as it sounds actually as that game is fairly forgiving with your singing and awards you a good amount of points. Just pick a song you feel most confortable with and try to hit around 60-65% of the notes in it and you should get 15,000+ points easily. After you complete a song with a score of over 15,000 points, the trophy will pop!
|Sing at least 2 hours.|
See "Crazy Night"
|Sing at least 3 hours.||(2)|
This will come by just playing the game and going after the Platinum as you will be singing for more than 3 hours in order to complete everything. Please note that only the time you are singing counts towards that total. Just keep playing through Career Mode & Party Mode until you've sang for over 3 hours, at which time the trophy will pop!
|Keen music lover|
|Sing 50 songs.|
See "Warm-Up Artist"
|Sing 100 songs.|
This will come by just playing the game and going after the Platinum as you will be singing more than 100 songs to finish off everything. Just keep playing through Career Mode & Party Mode until you've sang over 100 songs, at which time the trophy will pop!
|Wear all customisation items.|
To get this, you must have unlocked all the clothing items & hair styles for both male & female characters (requires you to beat the game on Star & Superstar with both genders). Once you have unlocked everything (no locked images left), select to play in either Solo or Duet in "Party Mode" and then at the song selection screen, press to customize your character. Select either male of female and then any contestant. After you've done that, hit again on their "profile-like" page to customize their outfits. Go through each custom item (hair, torso, leg items) and press on them to select them, then move to the next one. If an item has more than one color available (it will say " Change the colour" at the top of the screen), make sure you scroll through each available color for that item before moving on. Once you have pressed to "wear" every item for whichever gender you choose, back out to the song selection menu and repeat the process with the opposite gender. Once you run through all of the items and have worn them (with their color variations), the trophy will unlock for you!
|Unlock all game tracks and customisation items.|
You will unlock the tracks & customisation items as you playthrough Career Mode. You will need to play through both Male & Female careers in both Star & Superstar difficulty modes in order to unlock everything. You can see how many customisation items you have left to unlock by going into your wardrobe in the dressing room and looking in each category for items with a "lock" on them. For game tracks, there is a total of 28 tracks after you unlock them all, so you will be able to tell how many you have left based off that. Once you unlocked everything, the trophy will pop!
