Sony unveils PSN Gamers' Choice Awards

Vote for your favourite downloads.

Sony has taken the lid off a new initiative to highlight the best downloadable titles available for PlayStation 3 and PSP: the PlayStation Network Gamers' Choice Awards.

Between 22nd February and 1st March, PSN users will be asked to vote in a number of different categories by downloading a free XMB theme corresponding to a game.

After voting closes, the four winning games – one per category – will be offered at a 30 per cent discount in the PlayStation Store, or at a 50 per cent discount to PlayStation Plus subscribers.

Winners will be announced on 7th March on the PlayStation Blog.

At present, the scheme is US-only but we're in touch with Sony to find out if the awards will be going global. We'll update when we hear back.

In the meantime, here are the categories and nominees:
