Here are the PlayStation Awards 2018 winners

PlayStation Awards 2018

The awards ceremony for Sony’s PlayStation Awards 2018 has just concluded, with 29 trophies awarded at an invite-only venue in Tokyo, Japan. This year’s edition, the 24th since PlayStation’s release, comprised six award categories mostly determined by sales numbers — one of them a first for the show. After opening with a catchy ‘Play Again’ commercial for the PS4 we were treated to a live three-piece jazz band, H Zett Trio, who later gave their renditions of a few popular tunes.

Here are the winners.

Ade thinks there's nothing quite like a good game and a snug headcrab. He grew up with HIDEO KOJIMA's Metal Gear Solid, lives for RPGs, and is waiting for light guns to make their comeback.
