PSN “Gamers’ Choice Awards 2012” Nominees Announced

The 2012 nominees for the PSN Gamers’ Choice Awards have been announced.

  1. There’s some really good games missing from that list.

  2. I think it’s kind of funny that Tetris is a Best PSN Exclusive. I know that version is exclusive but still.

  3. Not particularly any PSN games I have enjoyed there :s Bit of an underwhelming list.

  4. Best PSone Classic:
    Chrono Trigger (PS3/PSP)
    Parasite Eve (PS3/PSP)
    Xenogears (PS3/PSP)

    i’d like any of them to be honest, but not living in the us i probably never will.

    • Just make a US account?

    • Yep, just make a new PSN account, use some hotel in America as your address and buy a $50 PSN voucher on eBay, and you’re all sorted.

      It wasn’t me who told you (unless it’s not frowned upon, in which case it was!)

      • i already have one, my summer house.
        on sesame street.
        i say hi to big bird every morning.

        funny thing, turns out sesame street is actually in Beverly Hills, the 90120 zip code. ^_^

        anyway, i could do that, and maybe i will at some point, but i’d also like to be able to play the games on psp, and vita when i get one if they get the ps1 games working on that by then.
        and using more than one account on psp is a pain, it looks like it’ll be more of a hassle, not to mention expensive needing two memory cards, on vita.

        this comment has been brought to you by the letter E and the number 7.

  5. The Hell?
    Weird list indeed.

  6. Shitty list. LOL at Tetris for PS3 exclusive.

  7. hope the best games get discounts *cough*

    this us though..? eu could be a bit different then..

  8. FOB is excellent. Hope it’s a big winner :-)

  9. Apart from PJS2 i don’t see much on that list that i would vote for, hopefully if there’s a EU version of this it’ll reflect our more discerning palates! ……i did say hopefully.. ;)

  10. Dungeon defenders is amazing, it’d get my vote every time

    • Yes it is… Add me if you wana play sometime.. Psn gybrocker..
