Sony Takes the Crown at Gamescom
…and the winner is….
There’s still 2 days left for Gamescom but Sony’s already walked away with some of the top honors of the event. The convention’s jury ( a group of press and industry figures ) crowned Sony’s and Polyphony Digital’s Gran Turismo 5 with not one, but two awards :Best of Gamescom and Best Console Game. Sony’s PlayStation Move also won in the category of Best Hardware Accessories.
Best of Gamescom: Gran Turismo 5 (Sony Computer Entertainment)
Best Hardware Accessories: PlayStation Move (Sony Computer Entertainment)
Best Console Game: Gran Turismo 5 (Sony Computer Entertainment)
Best Handheld/Mobile Game: Super Scribblenauts (Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment)
Best Online Game: Guild Wars 2 (NCsoft)
Best PC Game: Crysis 2 (EA/Crytek)
Best Family Entertainment: Kirbyâ€™s Epic Yarn (Nintendo)
I was a bit surprised to see that NCSoft’s Guild Wars 2Â won in the Best Online Game category and not Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV which is due out next month. Maybe it wasÂ the extra $3 per character in FFXIV that sealed the deal….
