PSN Gamers' Choice Awards voting open

Choose your favourite games, see them discounted

Sony has opened voting on its new PSN Gamers' Choice Awards, although it looks like a US-only event.


Users cast their votes by downloading a free XMB theme corresponding to their game of choice, and the winning game from each category will receive a 30 percent price reduction to all PSN users (50 percent for PS Plus subs) as part of a planned PS Store Spring Fever event.

Voting will be open from today through March 1 on small selection of select titles within four categories (Best PS3 Downloadable Game, Best PSP Downloadable Game, Best PS3/PSP Mini, and Best PSN Exclusive Game) listed over here.

Seems a bit odd that the reward for voting is a discount on the winning games - which the majority of voters will presumably already own, otherwise why would they vote for them?

Still, it's all good fun.
