Best of E3 2012: PlayStation Sweeps the Game Critics Awards

It truly is an exciting time to be part of the PlayStation family. This morning, PlayStation was recognized by the gaming industry elite, winning an industry-leading seven Game Critics: Best of E3 awards including BEST IN SHOW for The Last of Us, and receiving more awards than any other platform or publisher.

Receiving critical acclaim throughout the industry, The Last of Us, the new PS3 survival action game from the talented team at Naughty Dog, took home a whopping five Game Critics Awards. In addition to bringing down the house at the close of our E3 press conference, Naughty Dog also showed a behind closed door demo that showcased a totally different way to play the press conference demo and highlighted how choices made by the gamer in the struggle to survive deadly encounters can affect how enemies react and the tactics they’ll employ.

Congratulations are also in order for Unfinished Swan developers Giant Sparrow winning Best Downloadable Game and Sound Shapes’ Queasy Games for Best Handheld/Mobile Game. Notable nominations also include Quantic Dream for Beyond: Two Souls nominated for Best Original Game and Best Action/Adventure Game, PlayStation All-Stars nominated for Best Fighting Game, LittleBigPlanet Karting nominated for Best Racing Game, and Wonderbook nominated for Best Peripheral.

We are thrilled to be leading the pack following E3 2012 — bringing a strong lineup to gamers throughout the rest of this year and well into 2013 across our PS3, PS Vita and PSN platforms. Again, a massive congratulations to all nominees and winners of this year’s Game Critics Awards: Best of E3!
