More Accolades as LittleBigPlanet wins Best PS3 game at Leipzig
Have you been following Danny D's reviews of the gaming extravaganza that was GC in Leipzig? We sure hope so.
All-in-all GC was a good show from Sony as we witnessed some new and intriguing innovations heading our way in the near future. And though we were way off with our over-zealous predict-o-meter, the convention was generally viewed as a positive (though not earth-shattering) showing for the PlayStation brand.
As is the tradition of all such shindigs, the organisers of Leipzig spent some time roaming the halls, clip-boards in hand, and then promptly locked themselves in a secluded hideaway (read: probably a German bar), turning off all phones and debating into the wee hours of the night. After hours of toil (and German swearing) they finally emerged into the sunlight to bestow accolades on the gaming wares so flagrantly flaunted on the aforementioned convention floor.
We're not going to delve into the full list (as there was obviously a lot of non-PS3 related awards imparted) but here's some of the Sony-centric honours that might tickle your fancy.
- Best PS3 Game: LittleBigPlanet (You do not win a prize if you predicted this one)
- Best Hardware: PlayTV
- Best PSP Game: Resistance: Retribution
- Best PS2 Game: Too few entrants; no award (Huh?)
Two other points of interest: the best Xbox360 game on display is not a 360 exclusive (put down your torches, this is just an observation) and Fallout 3 was unceremoniously snubbed. This is despite the German public having gone insane for Bethesda flavoured RPGs in the past and the post-apocalyptic sequel garnering universal extolment at every other gathering of gamers known to man. Apparently it was considered but was beaten at the line by "other games". Who'd have thought?
