Joysticks: MGS4 sneaks PlayStation GoTY

GTA IV and Call of Duty 4 didn't see a thing

Metal Gear Solid 4 has been voted Game of the Year in the PlayStation GoTY - Sponsored by Official PlayStation Magazine HD category at the Golden Joystick Awards.

We were about to type, "and who could suggest any other winner?" But a glance at the two runner-ups proves just how tight the PlayStation category was; both Call of Duty 4 and the mammoth Grand Theft Auto IV missed out, but it was a very close call indeed.

As for MGS4, we're glad it's finally got a gong to show for its - we think - under-praised arrival earlier this year.
