If you are a PlayStation player then you already know that plenty of games on the console tend to have fun Easter Eggs. Casual gamers tend to stick to the regular gameplay and story line, but if you are reading this you are probably looking for secrets and hidden details.
So let’s look at some of the Easter Eggs that gave PlayStation players a seriously hard time.
1. Resident Evil 2 – Wesker’s Desk
If you have played Resident Evil 2, like ever, then you already know that most of the time searching desks results in the game telling you that nothing useful could be found. And every now and then you will get a file that you likely won’t read because they are way too long and it’s not always worth it. This led to people not even checking the desks after some time.
So imagine how far out of their way someone must have gone to find this Easter Egg, because you need to look at the same desk 50 TIMES to unlock it! The first 49 times the game will say that nothing useful is there, and then finally you get this:
A very pixelated picture of Rebecca in a basketball outfit… Once again, not very worth it to search a desk. I don’t know the definite timeline for how long it took for someone to find this picture, but I’d imagine it was at least a couple of months after the game came out. In a saner world, it would have taken years.
2. Final Fantasy IX – The final side quest
This game came out in 2000 on the PlayStation, but this Easter egg was only discovered in 2013! You would think that if it took this long to find then it would be something really difficult and rewarding. We’ll get to that in a minute.
To get to the final side quest you need to find all of the three brothers on disc four. It probably doesn’t sound very challenging, but nobody thought of even doing it, so let’s give some credit to the person who discovered this Easter Egg – YouTube content creator GarlandTheGreat. But let’s ask: what did he get?
A Protect Ring. If you aren’t familiar with the Final Fantasy games, then let’s just say that this item was basically worthless at this point.
3. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City – An actual Easter Egg
The GTA games are already filled with fun little secrets, so when it came to placing an Easter Egg Rockstar got quite literal with it. On top of the VCN building you can go to a window adjacent to the helipad and hop right through it. That’s where you’ll find this chocolate egg with the message “Happy Easter”.
The placement of this one made it slightly difficult to find because no reasonable person would go through that window, unless it happens by accident.
The best part is that you can do this exact same thing to find an Easter egg in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, which is a PlayStation Portable spinoff. The only difference will be the fact that this game is set 2 years prior to Vice City, so now you will only be able to find doodles and a partially made egg.
