Red Dead Redemption, Mass Effect 2 and Limbo sure does deserve their prizes and Heavy Rain (which I haven't played myself) really has great innovation that truly deserved that prize.

Both well deserved. Both Mass Effect 2 and Red Dead Redemption are masterpieces.

mthielThis reminds me of schools a few years ago who forbade their students from having MySpace accounts. I don't mean blocking MySpace from the school, I mean banning the kids from having accounts)03/29/2015 - 5:12pm
Constermthiel, that is fucked up. Threatening to call social services on parents if you find out they let their kids play the wrong kind of video games is a suicidal move for schools.03/29/2015 - 5:07pm

MaskedPixelanteI highly doubt Zelda will be missing from E3. They've got something lined up, next year is the 30th anniversary.03/29/2015 - 3:59pm

InfophileSony's customer service has always been crap, but up till now it's been manageable crap. A few cases of people having to pay for being hacked at worst, the Other OS removal... This one is going to be much worse for them.03/28/2015 - 1:34pm
WymorenceWhen did Sony start doing the ransomware stuff...? other than the old BMG rootkit stuff that is.03/28/2015 - 12:45pm

Andrew EisenThat would mean either Nintendo's next home console will be out by next year or the next Zelda game is suffering a two year delay. Both extraordinarily unlikely.03/27/2015 - 8:34pm

MechaCrashMiyamoto once said "a delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever." While this can be taken to excess, it is good that Nintendo remembers it.03/27/2015 - 7:44pm
MaskedPixelanteYay for it not being a buggy mess like AC Unity. Boo that it got delayed til November 2016.03/27/2015 - 7:07pm
