If the name doesn’t ring a bell, you may know the event simply with the name PlayStation Awards, which it had until last year. That being said, several changes have been made to the lineup of awards offered.
The awards aim to honor the developers that have created the best-selling games across the PlayStation ecosystem with a focus on Japan and Asia.
The awards were introduced with a speech by Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan who unleashed his Japanese for the occasion. You can watch it at the bottom of the post.
