    Of some of the catergories there, these are my picks...

    Best PSN Exclusive:
    PixelJunk Shooter 2 (PS3)

    Best PSN Game:
    inFAMOUS Festival of Blood (PS3)

    Best Mini Game:
    PAC-MAN Championship Edition (PS3/PSP)

    PlayStation Community Award — Best Indie:
    PixelJunk Shooter 2 (PS3)

    I would also strongly suggest that Motorstorm RC will feature heavily next year!

    While I don't own a 3D TV so haven't tried any 3D games myself, from what I've heard I'm amazed that the Ico/SotC collection didn't get a mention there for best 3D game.

    Also - am I correct in my belief that we didn't actually get a single one of the nominated PSOne classics on our AU store?

    How is Tetris a PSN exclusive?

    These categories feel so arbitrary.

    Braaains: Yep we can't get one of them. Maybe it would be alright hoping for a deluge of content after R18 laws are brought in. Pretty criminal that we can't play Xenogears.

    It's a good idea, but i can't help but feel Sony rounded up games they could put a discount on and present it as "Gamer's choice".
