ECTS Awards announced

Splinter Cell wins Best of Show

The ECTS Awards have just been announced by Gareth Jones aka Gaz Top at a stage to the rear of the show floor. In front of the assembled legions of literally hundreds of huddled journalists and representatives from publishers, developers, retailers and countless other games industry corporations and bodies, Splinter Cell won the coveted Best of Show award, with Breed and Pro Evolution Soccer 2 picking up Best PC and Best Console titles respectively. The Best Handheld game award fell to Super Monkey Ball, and the madcap Korean Multiplayer Ping Pong title won Best Multiplayer Game of the Show - hardly a surprise to those of us who've played it. Unsurprisingly, the pan-European awards, sponsored by various European publications, were a walk in the park on the console side for Grand Theft Auto III, which scooped three awards and a total of five overall - the most popular single title of the entire ceremony.
