E3 2013: PlayStation Devs Rake in Awards & Accolades

Wow, what an amazing E3! With all the excitement surrounding the show this year, it’s easy to forget that it was all topped off with the release of The Last Of Us at the end of the week! I hope everybody is enjoying the game; it’s truly special. My recommendation: play on hard mode with the headphones cranked up… in the dark, if you dare. :)

Congrats to Naughty Dog on another amazing title. Arguably their best yet?

This year’s E3 was very special for all of us at PlayStation, with all the buzz and anticipation surrounding PS4. For me personally, I get the added privilege of working with some of the most brilliantly talented developers in the industry, who are all focused to show off their latest creations at E3. We were overwhelmed by the tremendous support we received from the gaming industry during a fantastic E3 week.

I am honored to be a member of the PlayStation team as we look forward to a time of unprecedented excitement for gamers worldwide. From the launch of PS4 this holiday season — with an amazing lineup of games like Killzone: Shadow Fall, DRIVECLUB and KNACK, and inFAMOUS Second Son coming shortly thereafter — to the release of some of our biggest blockbusters ever on PS3 with Beyond: Two Souls and Gran Turismo 6, to the exciting lineup of new PS Vita titles including Killzone Mercenary and Tearaway, to all the amazing indie game announcements (Octodad!), it’s an amazing time to be a PlayStation gamer.

On behalf of PlayStation’s Worldwide Studios, I wanted to offer a humble congratulations to the all the teams who were nominated for Best of E3 awards. The developers have been working for months or even YEARS in preparation for a great showing this year. A sincere THANKS! to all the devs, the media, and most importantly, the incredible PlayStation community for your support this year. To celebrate a successful E3, we want to recognize all of the teams for their hard work. Check out the full list of awards and accolades below:
