Grand Theft Auto Takes Grand Prize At Japan’s PlayStation Awards

By Spencer . December 3, 2013 . 3:00am

image Sony Computer Entertainment holds a PlayStation Awards ceremony every year to award top selling games and fan favorite games. Grand Theft Auto V was the only game to receive a Platinum Prize, a prize given out to a game that shipped over a million copies between November 1, 2012 and October 31, 2013. More than one game can receive a Platinum Award, but only GTAV shipped enough units to receive it.


The Gold Prize is for games that shipped between 500,000 and 1,000,000 units. Tales of Xillia 2, World Soccer Winning Eleven 2013, Yakuza 5: Dreams, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle, and Dragon’s Crown walked away with that prize.


The top ten games selected by users and received the User’s Choice Award are: Persona 4: Golden, Dragon’s Crown, Toukiden: Age of Demons, The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Flash, Killzone: Mercenary, The Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls, Soul Sacrifice, and Tomb Raider.


Finally, Sony has a selection of Special Prizes given to influential, novel, topical, or for new ideas. Phantasy Star Online 2, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and Cytus Lambda received this prize.

    so happy for Dragon’s Crown, Toukiden, Persona 4, Soul Sacrifice and Killzone: Mercenary. I believed so much in these games.

  • Alexander Aubert

    so happy that they picked P4G, dragons crown, trails in the flash, and ToX 2

  • Dark Zerato

    I thought The Last of us would earn the gold prize. It’s a pretty good game.

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

      Well it Japan not US.

      • Ferrick

        considering the article that says the last of us sold quite well and got positive reviews from Japan exists, what’s the basis of your statement ?

        • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

          My Statement shouldn’t be hard to understand.
          Just because it sold well doesn’t mean it did well enough for Sony to consider it for an award.

  • Raze

    Trail in the Flash is there…
    Just ordered it from PA….

  • icecoffemix

    Sen no Kiseki! yeahh!!!

    • MrTyrant

      Hell yeah! Falcom’s Trails just rocks!

  • Kornelious

    Hooray for Dragons Crown Trails in the flash and Xillia 2 :D

  • z_merquise

    Just seeing Dragon’s Crown being nominated is enough for me to be happy. So glad that it’s getting a good reception it deserve.

  • fairysun

    I am surprised Dead or Alive 5 do not make it there. I guess boobs and sexual charm can only sell so much.

    • 永次

      Fighting games sells poorly in Japan because they have enough with the Arcade, the most-selled fighting games this generation are the DS Jump Stars, PSP Dissidias, PS3 Gundam Extreme VS. and PS3 JoJo no kimyou na bouken ASB.

  • Aristides

    Cytus Lambda won a prize? 0-0 do people even know that game exists? lol
