Crush gets Develop Award nomination

While PSP is home to many great PlayStation franchises, it's also where many exciting, new and innovative IPs have taken off. Crush is yet another example of a great original PSP title, and it's already getting the attention of critics and developers alike. The Develop Conference has announced its nominations for award recipients, and Crush stands as the easy favorite in the "New Handheld IP" category.

Awards will be announced on July 25th. Will the unanimously beloved Crush get a win?

Metal Gear Solid wins Best Portable Game award from Famitsu

What? A PSP game that isn't called LocoRoco finally wins an award? Japan's most popular gaming magazine, Famitsu, recently unveiled their Famitsu Awards winners. PSP earned a valuable nod by stealing the "Best Portable Game" award with Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops. Kojima's latest adventure certainly earns the award, with some spectacular graphics and a deep single and multiplayer gaming experience.

While PSP fans can celebrate this victory, it should be noted that Final Fantasy XII (PS2) and Pokemon Diamond & Pearl (DS) both won Game of the Year.

Yes, LocoRoco gets another award nomination

You're probably tired of these stories. We are too. LocoRoco continues to receive praise from critics around the world, and it's nominated (yet again) for a new award. This time, educational charity D&AD has nominated the happiest PSP title for a Yellow Pencil award. Yellow Pencil awards aren't just for kids games, though. Previous winners include Resident Evil 4, and other fare, like Nintendogs.

LocoRoco joins Shadow of the Colossus, Buzz!, Brain Training and Wii Sports in this year's nominations. Hopefully, next time Sony gets nominated, it'll be for a new game.

LocoRoco earns more nominations, from NAViGaTR

There are way too many awards ceremonies for the video game industry. Thankfully, PSP's darling platformer LocoRoco is always there to represent the system. This year, LocoRoco has earned a Game of the Year nomination from NAViGaTR (National Academy of Video Game Testers and Reviewers). With 1,150 videogame critics, analysts, and journalists on the voting board, it's clear that LocoRoco's quality has impacted quite a lot of people.

Feel free to watch the hilarious embedded video, which shows off an empty audience as the award nominations are announced. Something tells me they should've simply stuck to a press release instead of a video.

LocoRoco wins two AIAS awards

If LocoRoco's soundtrack doesn't get you smiling, then clearly you've been born without a heart. Sony's heavily promoted platformer got two wins at the AIAS awards, one for original soundtrack, and the other for "Best Children's Game."

Congrats to Sony, and everyone at the LocoRoco team.

TGS 06: Best in Show, according to CESA

The mighty Computer Entertainment Software Association of Japan revealed the eleven titles they thought were the "best in show." Of those titles, two were exclusives for the PSP. Here are the winners, in no particular order:
  • Elebits (Konami) for the Wii
  • Gyakuten Saiban 4 [Phoenix Wright] (Capcom) for the DS
  • Gran Turismo HD (Sony) for the PS3
  • The Eye of Judgment (Sony) for the PS3
  • Seiken Densetsu 4 [Dawn of Mana] (Square Enix) for the PS2
  • Tales of Destiny (Namco Bandai) for the PS2
  • Blue Dragon (Microsoft) for the Xbox 360
  • Heavenly Sword (Sony) for the PS3
  • Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops (Konami) for the PSP
  • Monster Hunter Portable 2nd (Capcom) for the PSP
  • Lost Planet (Capcom) for the Xbox 360
This should come as no surprise. There are so many excellent games at TGS this year, that it must've been nigh impossible to even narrow the list down. But, for those of you that are battling a fanboy war, you might want to note that PSP got two titles, and the DS only got one.
