Final Fantasy XIII Takes Platinum Prize At The 2010 PlayStation Awards

imageEvery year, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan awards the top selling games prizes. Ship 500,000 units in Japan for a gold prize. Platinum titles break the 1,000,000 mark. There was only one platinum prize winner this year, Final Fantasy XIII.

 

Personally, the user choice prize and new PlayStation Store awards are more interesting. Japanese gamers picked Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and God of War III as two of their favorite games to play. Those Western developed titles are sitting on the same pedestal as Demon’s Souls (the budget reprint), Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, and Legend of the Heroes: Zero no Kiseki.

 

The PlayStation Store award is a prize for the top selling PlayStation Network downloads. Wizardry: Dungeon of the Imprisoned Souls flew past the competition and netted one of five awards. Two other slots are filled with Hatsune Miku: Project Diva 2nd downloadable content.
