PSN Gamers Choice winners primed for sale discount
Wednesday 09 March 2011
Twenty entered, but only four survived: North American PlayStation Network users selected
God of War: Ghost of Sparta,
Age of Zombies, and
Dead Nation as the service's best of 2010 and made them eligible for a week-long discount starting March 8.
Castle Crashers, a cartoon-style medieval ruckus, had previously enjoyed two years' exclusivity on the Xbox 360's online portal, Xbox Live Arcade.
Its creators at The Behemoth had found fame with the Newgrounds website and in particular Alien Hominid, a web game that made the transition to GameCube, PlayStation 2, Xbox, and Xbox Live Arcade.
The PSP's God of War: Ghost of Sparta is set between the events of home console games God of War I and II, while Dead Nation is a top-down zombie survival shooter for PlayStation 3 from the studio behind the Super Stardust series.
Age of Zombies was voted best PlayStation Mini, a category of PSN games devised in part to compete with the runaway success of Apple's App Store.
That said, developers Halfbrick brought Age of Zombies to iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad in January 2011 as follow-up to Monster Dash and Fruit Ninja.
The PSN Gamers Choice winners will go on sale on the North American PSN Store at 30% off for all and 50% off for PSN Plus subscribers.
