The PlayStation Awards (PS Awards) will be returning for its 25th iteration, marking the milestone of PlayStation’s 25th anniversary.
The PS Awards 2019 will officially recognize titles that have been released on the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita from 1 October 2018 to 30 September 2019. Therefore, games like last year’s Red Dead Redemption 2 and this year’s Kingdom Hearts 3 will be included but not upcoming games in 2019 like Death Stranding.
PlayStation users can vote for the PlayStation 25th Anniversary Users Choice Award starting from today. The user who leaves the best comment with their vote for the â€˜PlayStation 25th Anniversary Usersâ€™ Choice Awardâ€™ this year stands a chance to win a PS4 Pro (Jet Black, 1TB).
