Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia will hold this year’s PlayStation Awards ceremony on December 3 at 17:00 Japan time, the company announced.
The PlayStation Awards is an annual ceremony, ongoing since 1995, held to honor Japan’s top-selling PlayStation games. This year’s awards will encompass both Japan and the Asia region’s total shipment and download numbers.
The “Gold Prize” is awarded to titles that exceed 500,000 shipments, and the “Platinum Prize” is awarded to titles that exceed one million. There is also a “User Choice” category voted by fans (five games voted by Japan, five games voted by Asia), “PlayStation Network Award” (the three highest-selling download titles), and a “Asia Special Award” (three titles that contributed to the Asian business).
User Choice voting will open here on October 12 at 23:59 Japan time. Everyone who participates will be given a PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita downloadable theme as a present.
The PlayStation Awards will be live streamed on YouTube at the event’s official website.
