The PlayStation Awards took place in Tokyo last night, Sony’s annual award show that rewards PlayStation format titles based on sales in Asia. The PSVR awards category is a bit different though, instead honoring the top three titles that they say have “contributed to the sales of PlayStation VR” in the region.
While two of the three titles below were featured in heavily promoted hardware bundles in North America and Europe, interestingly enough none of the games awarded last night were bundled in Asia as far as we can tell.
Only titles released from Oct 1st, 2017 – Sept 30th, 2018 were considered this year. Last years winners were Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Farpoint, and SUMMER LESSON: Allison Snow.
If not based on hard sales numbers, as indicated in the other PS4 categories, we’re simply not certain what the criteria was for titles hoping to take home the award. Whatever the case may be, here’s the top three titles Sony says played a crucial role in selling PlayStation VR headsets this past year in Asia:
No Heroes Allowed! VR
