Awarded best publisher
The Independent Game Developers' Association, or TIGA, has just held its awards ceremony for 2018. As with several others, the UK-based organisation holds a yearly awards show for the games industry, celebrating not only the software, but the people behind them, from legal teams to recruitment agencies. This year, TIGA seems...
Just what is Project Mephisto?
Gamescom 2018 gets underway next week, and a “jury consisting of German and international games journalists” as well as a handful of YouTubers have nominated a series of games for awards across a variety of disciplines. There are some oddities here, like the mysterious inclusion of a title called Project Mephisto...
And all the other winners from last night's show
No pressure, Naughty Dog: The Last of Us: Part II won the award for the Most Anticipated release at The Game Awards 2017. Despite a huge number of nominations, it was actually the only Sony published title to win an award, in an evening where The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild utterly dominated...
Best of the rest
The nominees for the E3 2017 Game Critics Awards are in – and they’re missing a significant number of games. So the thing here is that the media had to be able to play at least five minutes of a title for it to be eligible, meaning that the likes of God of War, Spider-Man, Monster Hunter: World, Shadow of the Colossus, and...
And rightly so
We've noticed that it's become cool to hate Uncharted 4: A Thief's End in some circles, but that's not stopping it from scooping up awards like they're going out of fashion. Naughty Dog's sequel netted another gong this weekend, taking home the coveted Game of the Year accolade from the 2017 SXSW Gaming Awards. It beat out Dishonored...
The first of many?
Awards season is upon us, and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is favourite to take home a gong or two. Well, it's already picked up its first at the Golden Joysticks, where it won the Best PlayStation Game gong. There were no other prizes for Naughty Dog on the night, however, as Dark Souls III took home the Ultimate Game of the Year...
It's the gaming awards show season, with the Golden Joysticks first up. Game of the Year nominations for the annual British ceremony include INSIDE, The Witness, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, and… No Man's Sky? You can watch the full presentation live from London via the embed above.
Seven of the ten winners launching on PS4
Sony's presence at TGS 2015 this week was pretty darn impressive, as it dominated the headlines with a slew of announcements. And the Japanese market appears to have responded, with a gaggle of PlayStation 4 titles leaving the show with awards. Winners included: Star Wars Battlefront, Star Ocean 5:...
Brushes aside iPhone 5S and Xbox One
There’s a good chance that you’re reading this website because you love PlayStation, but let’s not pretend that there aren’t dozens of other snazzy gizmos out there. The market is practically flooded with nifty appliances these days, which perhaps makes the PlayStation 4’s success at the T3 Awards all...
But misses out to Titanfall
Sony may be eager to not get too excited about its E3 2013 performance, but the PlayStation 4 has already scooped one major victory over the Xbox One. The console has been nominated ‘Best of Show’ in the E3 2013 Game Critics Awards, alongside the
The one that got away
Given the sheer amount of awards that Journey has scooped up over the past 12 months, we suppose it’s about time that the title stopped hogging the limelight. Despite being the first ever video game to be nominated for a Grammy award, Austin Wintory’s scorching score lost out to Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ e
Clearly not content with the mass of awards that it’s already won, Journey has made history by becoming the first ever video game to be nominated for a Grammy award. The title’s scorching score – composed by Austin Wintory – is up for contention in the ‘Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media’ category. It’ll face off against...
Thatgamecompany’s exceptional PlayStation Network exclusive Journey took home the second GameCity Prize last night, when it was selected from a shortlist that included Catherine and Mass Effect 3. "I really like the goal of GameCity, to get people to notice games and talk about games, particularly for people who don't encounter...
Best of show
There’s no stopping Naughty Dog at the moment. Not content with dominating the generation with Uncharted, it’s now repeating that success with its upcoming survival horror The Last of Us. The PlayStation 3 exclusive was the star of this year’s E3, taking home five Game Critics Awards for Best Original Game, Best Console Game,...
Portal 2 takes home Game of the Year
Valve’s first-person puzzler Portal 2 took home the coveted Game of the Year gong at last night’s glitzy BAFTA awards ceremony in London. The brilliant brain bender was the biggest winner on the night, scooping up an additional two awards for best Design and Story. Despite being nominated in five categories,...
Quest for the best
Sony's revealed the nominees for the second annual PlayStation Network Gamers’ Choice Awards. Like last year, you’ll be able to vote for your favourites via the PlayStation Network, with an XMB theme available for each title you select. The winning game in each category will secure a 30% discount on the PlayStation Store (50%...
Test of Drake's fortune
One of the best PS3 games of last year — heck, of any year — is up for this year's BAFTA GAME Award. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception has been nominated in the only category determined by public votes, which means you have a real chance to shape its outcome. You can head over and vote for Uncharted 3 — or, you know, any...
Will it beat Kinect?
Prestigious UK industry magazine Develop has announced the list of nominees for its upcoming awards ceremony, and PlayStation Move is up for the Technical Innovation category where it competes against Kinect for Xbox 360. One of Move's biggest successes so far, Killzone 3 is also up for a well deserved Visual Arts award, and...
Sony's Heavy Rain was one of the stand-out games of 2010 whether playing with Move or DualShock, and last night's BAFTA Video Games Awards have honoured Quantic Dream's game with a trio of statues. David Cage's detective thriller scooped the award for Technical Innovation, beating Kinectimals, Super Mario Galaxy 2 and more. It also...

Nabs "most immersive game controller" gong
We know Move works great, you know Move works great, and now Sony's controller has been honoured with an award in Popular Science magazine's "Best of What's New 2010" issue. Honoured in the always hotly-contested Home Entertainment category, Move was called the "most immersive game...
Quantic Dream honoured
The patch to update Heavy Rain with Move controls should be let loose tomorrow, but Japanese body the Computer Entertainment Supplier's Association awarded the DualShock 3-enabled version its Game Designer's Award at a recent ceremony.
