The lights are on
Sony is holding its second annual Gamers' Choice Awards, where players get to pick the cream of the PSN's crop. If the idea of honoring a 2011 game sounds so 2011, perhaps a discount or 10 may help you change your position.
Voting for the awards begins today and lasts a week. Simply visit the PlayStation Store and make your selection among 10 categories. Participating in nine of the 10 categories gives you a series of special Gamers' Choice XMB themes. If you vote in the Best PSN Indie, you'll get a voucher code for an exclusive XMB. Winners will be announced on March 6, and winning games will be discounted 30 percent for a week. If you're a member of PlayStation Plus, that discount expands into a cool 50-percent off.
