Shouldn’t the titel be “Community Awards 2012” instead of “Community Awards 2013”?

    Apologies, we are just awaiting the category to be made publicly viewable, it shouldn’t be too much longer


Most Anticipated PlayStation Game of 2013?

Counter Strike – Global Offensive

Make it so! 🙂


“Best PlayStation Move game of the year”

You gotta be joking there, right?

First, Move is pretty much dead in the water with hardly a release (and if so, being good too)

Second, if there is one good game out there, it has no competition. The only one that had some attention in press too this year was Sorcery, and that one is at best mediocre. The Move patches for games that can be played with DS3, the DS3 is always the better controlling choice and Move is an afterthought.

Before picking the best Move game of the year, how about releasing some good ones? Maybe 2013…

As a Belgian, I demand Belgium to be put next to The Netherlands. =P

Thread of the Year = Nina’s Singstar Update about the XMB

Quote of the Year = “I’ll look into it”



@ GigaBowser

Even Sony still sees you as a province of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Hehehe 😉

I’d drop in and vote for the Spyro Trilogy as the best retro title, but sadly the forums are undergoing maintenance and won’t let me log in. I hope I’ll be able to do so in due course.

How long will the maintenance last? It keeps saying that the forum is under maintenance.

    Having a few technical issues today, should all be working normally very soon!

SwingerE11 9 January, 2013 @ 1:38 pm   10

Call of Duty: MW3 – Survival Mode in Special Ops

Woo the forum oscars are back, how time flies.


Thread of the Year = Nina’s Singstar Update about the XMB

Quote of the Year = “I’ll look into it”

This ^
Also a contender for funniest post of 2013 🙂
Speaking of Singstar any sign of it being removed/made optional. Being greeted by that cheesy screen every time I take a game out/turn the system on without a game in it still grates.

There’s a PlayStation Community?

Hmph, for me that seemed to die when SOCOM 2 did… not really been much to keep the “community” feel since then seeing as the whole world are misguidedly lumped in all together.

Bring back the TRUE sense of community and make games with regionalised lobbies please! Yup, like SOCOM 1 & 2 did last generation… instead of sticking everyone in the same pot and thinking “that will do”. I’m sorry, but playing games in rooms where people are speaking several different languages does NOT a community make. Furthermore, sticking English-speaking Brits in with English-speaking Americans does nothing to further the community. It may not be “PC” to say it but we are from different cultures with different views and lifestyles.

The days when you could enter a room in SOCOM from a lobby in your region (e.g. UK1) and have it feel like you were meeting people for a chat like you’d have in a pub were a highlight of online gaming that has been totally lost this generation. Now THAT was a community. This… is a mess.
