Here Are The Winners Of The Playstation Awards 2019

25

The Playstation Awards is the annual award ceremony to recognise sales milestones for games in Japan and Asia. The 2019 edition is a bit special as it is held on December 3rd, 25 years since the launch of the original Playstation.

SIE President Jim Ryan was in attendance to give the opening speech. Creator of the Playstation Ken Kutaragi also made an appearance.

Unlike last year, the broadcast stream was made available on the main Playstation Youtube channel, not just Playstation Japan’s.

Here are the winners of the Playstation Awards 2019.
