The categories with which the prizes are awarded are three: Grand Award, Partner Award and Special Award.

  • Genshin Impact , developed by miHoYo. The game is an open-world free-to-play that has enjoyed considerable success thanks to a vast world and a myriad of characters to choose from.
  • Resident Evil Village , developed by Capcom. The eighth chapter of the saga has been positively received by published and critics. Village sees us take on the role of Ethan Winters, grappling with new enemies tougher than ever.

What’s the PlayStation Partner Awards?

The PlayStation Partner Awards is a ceremony recognising some of the best game titles that have released on the platform during the year. This will be the 27th time the event would be held, since it started in 1994.

Traditionally, it is not just an event where players get to catch up on great news and announcements, but it is still interesting to see the progress of some third party games on PlayStation and maybe know some data regarding sales and partnership projects.
