Sony PlayStation Awards 2019 winners revealed

*But not pictured

Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Asia held its annual PlayStation Awards ceremony, celebrating the highest-selling titles of the year, (regardless of their year of release), across the Japanese and Asian markets.

As per usual, Platinum and Gold awards were offered to the big sellers, while special awards were handed out for markets such as online-only sales and VR and indie releases. While nothing quite hit the insanity of last year – where Capcom’s Monster Hunter: World went Quadruple Platinum –  there were still plenty of heavy-hitters collecting gongs.

If you want to watch the three-hour ceremony, then it is available for viewing right here.
