E3 2013: Indie Awards Round-Up

This year’s E3 was a great show for gamers around the world with so many incredible games announced across the industry. It was an amazing experience to be on stage at the press conference to once again reaffirm our commitment to gamers to bring them the most innovative, creative game experiences and make a statement to indie developers around the world that we truly are passionate about their games and support them across the PlayStation ecosystem.

It is truly humbling to work with such talented developers and publishers that can dream up and create games that we all just can’t seem to get enough of. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I joined Sony because I love video games, and I hope that passion shows. The response has been overwhelming, and so many of the titles that I was honored to introduce at E3 have turned the heads of fans and critics alike.

Each year, reporters at leading game enthusiast publications contribute to the E3 Game Critics Awards to select the titles they believe will shape the future of this industry. I want to congratulate some of our publishing partners for their recent nominations: Destiny, Watch_Dogs, Batman: Arkham Origins, Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag and The Elder Scrolls Online. In a sea of big-budget games from major publishers, several of our indies have also shined, receiving acclaim for their titles. In fact, all the Best Downloadable category nominees of the E3 Game Critics Awards will be available on PlayStation platforms when they launch.

Across the industry, we’re seeing media and fans fall in love with these indies, the same way we did when we first laid eyes their games. We featured the nine indie titles on stage at our press conference and had more than 30 indie games on the show floor at E3, which shows just how much we believe and love these creative, fun and innovative experiences. Clearly reporters agreed, as many titles received awards and recognition across various categories, only some of which are listed below. Congratulations to the mastermind developers behind the games! You all made this happen!
