No games received the Platinum Prize at PlayStation Awards 2016

It’s ok, I don’t have any platinum trophies either

Similar to the way music records get fancy records or child entertainers get golden play buttons, special prizes of platinum and gold are given out to top selling games in Asia at the PlayStation Awards. Except, no game was awarded a platinum prize this year, which goes to any game that moves over one million copies on PlayStation systems. This year’s event covers games released between October 1, 2015 and September 30, 2016. Dragon Quest Heroes, Minecraft, and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain received the platinum prize in 2015.

There were, however, several games that qualified for the gold prize for selling more than 500,000 units.  They include Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Dark Souls III, Dragon Quest Builders, Dragon Quest Heroes II, Persona 5, and Sword Art Online: Lost Song.
