Sony Announces Gamers’ Choice Awards 2012

Posted on February 27, 2012 AT 01:38pm

THE BUZZ: Sony has announced that the PSN Gamers’ Choice Awards 2012 will kick off tomorrow, with PS3 owners being given a chance to get the winning games at a special discount.

EGM’s TAKE: Just like last year, Sony is giving PS3 owners everywhere a chance to vote for their favorite PS3, PSN, PSP, and PS1 games from 2011. Starting tomorrow, you’ll be able to vote by going to the PlayStation Store, where each vote you cast will get you a free Gamers’ Choice Awards XBM theme.

Then, on March 6th, the winning choices will be revealed, and for one week, each of the winning games will be offered for sale for 30% off (or 50% off for PS+ subscribers). Now, of course, there’s one little problem with this idea: If I know the winning game will be offered for sale, wouldn’t I vote for the games I don’t have but want to buy, and not for the games I already own and liked the best? Hmm.

Also I can’t say I’m too happy with the list of PSP choices. All three of the games are from Square Enix—and one of them is essentially a demo.

Anyhow, here’s your list of nominations. Let us know in the comments what you’ll be voting for—and if you’ll actually vote for your favorite games, or the games you want to buy the most.
