Playstation Awards 2011

Sony has kicked off proceedings to mark the year that was by awarding recognition and accolades to rightly deserving games on both the PS3 and PSP systems. The awards recognise games that were released between November 1st 2010 and October 31st 2011 and this year Sony mixed things up a bit by introducing a new category to celebrate the games developed outside of Japan.

The awards have been running since 1995 and in recent years have turned to televising the shindig via website, Ustream. Incidentally the award show is still on the site and can be reached by clicking here.
