PlayStation Awards 2018 Winners

PlayStation Awards 2018 officially came and went, and with that arrives a list of winners. This event was designed to celebrate games based on their sales in Asian territories. This year, Monster Hunter: World won big. The game was awarded the Quadruple Platinum Prize, the ceremony’s highest award, for having “an accumulated shipment quantity (including download quantity) of over four million copies.”

Monster Hunter: World‘s commercial success isn’t just confined to Japan, however. The game has sold over ten million units worldwide and has been a record-breaking title for Capcom. While the PlayStation Awards are almost exclusively about sales, there are a few purely merit/popularity based award categories. Even in those, Monster Hunter: World shined, as it landed a spot on Users Choice Prize alongside titles like Detroit: Become Human, God of War, and Marvel’s Spider-Man.
