PlayStation Awards Winners Announced, GOWIII, Final Fantasy XIII Amongst Big Winners

by Ernice Gilbert on December 3rd, 2010, under Hot, News, Sony

Although Final Fantasy was a massive disappoint to many fans, that didn’t stop the game from being the big winner at the PlayStation awards.

Then again, that’s in Japan, where the majority are RPG lovers. Still, it’s good to see the franchise is yet loved by many. God of War III, Modern Warfare 2 and Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition (Capcom) also had decent showings.

The full quencher’s past the break.

    I wonder why it didn’t even get nominated at the VGAs? Or am I missing something?

    @Ernice Gilbert, im wondering why assassins creed brotherhood didn’t get nominated at the VGA’s, that game was awesome

  4. Sat, 4th Dec 2010 at 7:19 am

    Yeah. Many good games didn’t get on there… I don’t know why… I truly don’t. Can’t say is because they released late, Heavy Rain released way back in March…

    I don’t know the process by which the nominations are made, so I’ll have to inquire… Still, no Heavy Rain and Brotherhood’s rather odd.

    HR did not get nominated because its too niche, not everyone likes it these things normally only get awarded to the most popular games.
    ACB did not get nominated because its no where near as good as AC2, and seriously, seriously buggy!
    seriously shocked RDR is not there, thats the best game we have had in decades!

    Well shame on the industry if one of the most respected and innovative games of this year doesn’t get nominated because it’s to “niche” of a game. Crying shame.
