To quote: As the saying goes, "It's an honor just to be nominated." If that's the case, then we here at PlayStation are pretty well honored; The 2009 Video Game Awards nominees have just been announced, and Sony Computer Entertainment is up for 17 awards, more than any other publisher!
UNCHARTED 2 leads all games with a record eight nominations, including GAME OF THE YEAR. See below for the full list of SCE titles and what award they're up for.
But going back to that saying - being honored is nice, but winning is better. Fortunately, the decision isn't left up to a shadowy cabal of Illuminati; for the first time ever, gamers from around the world get to vote for the victors between now and Saturday, December 12th.
Hat in hand, we kindly ask you to vote for your favorite PlayStation games on Spike's VGAs site.
In honor of our record number of VGA nominations, we're currently planning a viewing party near the LA studios where the VGAs will be broadcast live to the world.

Through the partnership with Rock The Vote, Microsoft is also planning to have a presence at the Republican and Democrat party conventions to educate politicians about it and its members views.
