This year’s PlayStation Awards will begin at 12:00 a.m. PST / 3:00 a.m. EST / 17:00 Japan time.
The PlayStation Awards are held annually to award the highest-selling PlayStation titles in Japan. The “Platinum Prize” is awarded to games that shipped over one million units, while the “Gold Prize” is awarded to games that shipped over 500,000 units. The “PlayStation Network Award” is awarded to the three highest-selling download titles, and the “Asia Special Award” is given to three titles that contributed to the Asian business. There’s also a “User Choice” category voted by fans.
It’s worth noting that there are generally no new announcements at the PlayStation Awards. The exception is last year, which saw the announcement of the 20th anniversary edition PlayStation 4.
