During last month’s Games Conference in Leipzig, the awards for “Best in Show” were given out. There were eight awards for Best Game, each category representing a platform, while a final award was given for Best Hardware.
Of the nine announced awards, three of them were given to Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE): LittleBigPlanet for the PS3 category, Resistance: Retribution for PSP, and PlayTV for Hardware.
Ever wondered what reasons the jury and panelists gave to justify the awards for these products? Three Speech enlightens us on what judges had to say about the three winners:
- LittleBigPlanet: Best Game for PS3. “It adds both a social and a creative element to the console world: the gamer community becomes the developer community. LittleBigPlanet comes with a convincingly vivid backdrop and almost unlimited possibilities with entertaining level structure.”
- Resistance: Retribution: Best Game for PSP. Â“Neither the small console nor the gamer can take a breather till Europe has been liberated from an extraterrestrial fleet of invaders.Â”
- PlayTV: Best Hardware. Â“The remote function is particularly impressive, making it possible to watch recorded TV shows or live TV programmes on the PSP.Â”
