Looks cool, but I wish they had more options. For example, Dungeon Defenders is in 3 of the categories.. anyway, I'll be voting for it for sure. Guess this just means more votes eh?

If the same game wins more than one category, will the discounts stack? Common Sony, make it worth it for us.

Not one, but two Assassin's Creed games in the same category? I mean I love dunking a hidden blade into the back of an unsuspecting victim's neck as much as anyone, but really? There are definitely a few other options they could have put in there for variety instead of that. Same with FF 012 on PSP, again, huge FF fanboy here but come on now let's get some variety.

@3: It's better than the PSP selections, which include two editions of the same lousy game. Of course, they don't have a lot to pick from since Sony half-assed their support of the PSP... which is one of the major reasons I don't plan on buying a Vita. Fool me once, etc. etc. etc..

Funny how the "Best PS3 full game" of 2011 category doesn't feature any games that were originally released in 2011...

Wouldn't mind a 50% discount of Dissidia 012 [duodecim] Final Fantasy though :)

50% discount? Shit, fuck that. I'm voting for the game I want the 50% discount on.

The winners are oblivious, but you can't beat that deal if its a chance of getting a game you don't own on that list for 50% off.

Ha, finally we gamers get to actually choose our favorites, but it's from a list? Hopefully Sony made this list with the top-sellers and responses. Since the VGAs were a fail (Skyrim voted GotY is a joke), maybe this is redemption for the PS3 gamers.

@13...I haven't played most of the games that are nominated, so I really have no idea which one I'd choose as the best. The only voting I can do are for the ones I want to see discounted. :P

Midnight Club: Los Angeles is highly underrated. I hope that it gets a bunch of votes from people who have played it. I feel like Assassin's Creed might not have been a big PSN title as opposed to people who owned the game, but it will still probably get voted in.

I know I'm definitely voting for what I want discounted.

So Pixel Junk, Angry Birds, and Street Fighter.

Don't really care for anything else.

Is it just me or do you also not want to vote on anything but the Best PSone Classic? I want to vote on all 3 of the games there, and pretty much none of the other games nominated in any of the other categories... Chrono Trigger would have been the clear pick if it wasn't for the extra long loading times in the PS1 version compared to SNES, but I'm still going to vote for Chrono Trigger in the Best PSone Classic, even though it's really a re-released game from SNES. lol

Plants vs Zombies for sure to win best PSN game. Why? Cause what better way to beat up the undead than with your own plants? Forget guns and electrical powers. Abnormal plants is where it's at XD

if PvZ wins then that is a joke for PSN subscribers as it was already free, no use to most people unless they have only recently signe up. Fail!

I hope The Impossible Game, God of War Collection: Volume 2 or The Sly Trilogy win an award. I have all three and, though I haven't yet got round to GoWC: V2, I have all three main games on PS3 and I think they're brilliant. It'd also nice to see Pac-Man: Championship Edition DX, Midnight Club: Los Angeles - Complete Edition and Limbo win awards, aswell. I know Pac-Man's already cheap, but, the cheaper, the better! :)

Continuing on from my earlier comment (#28), we're also PlayStation Plus Subscribers, so some of the games will be really cheap for us, if the votes go in our favour. Though, I think we'll be voting for the games we actually have, rather than the ones we want discounted, if this applies for EU players aswell. :)

Correct me if I'm wrong - but I don't think you can vote on something you haven't yet purchased. Otherwise I'd vote for what I wanted a discount on as well.

This is a joke.... Wouldn't the highest rated games be something like;
Scott Pilgrim
Castle Crashers
Etc....

Everyone is just going to vote for the games they don't even own and probably haven't played in order to gt a discount. So how is this at all fair to the deserving games?
